Customer Reviews

More support needed.

This app used to support almost all kinds of formats. It seems lately that every update removes codecs. It's disappointing.


Nice app, pretty useful, tks to the work of the devellopers 👍👍😏

AirPlay (mirror) fixed in 2.6!

Thank you! This is the most wonderful media app on iOS! 😀 Please people, stop complaining about removed codecs, it's not like they had a choice.
