Newest Update Unusable
(Update) Just so we're clear, the miniplayer is awful and unusable and needs to be removed, or have a function for me to remove it. Because I 'upgraded' (more like downgraded) it upgrades on my ipad without asking... therefore I am not even able to use this app at all!... This is unacceptable.
So this (in my opinion) has been a 5 star program. Now with this newest update it has basically become unusable. I can start a video when it installs. But then after that there are MASSIVE glitches that hide the playing video, even if i switch the video, or when looking through my files that glitches out too and am unable to even be able to expand. The more I try to get it to work the less of my library is shown until it all disappears. Please Please PLEASE!!!!! fix this for the iPad 4. I was lucky enough to have a backed up older version on my pc that I went back to.
Long awaited update - solid improvements
I've been checking for an update every day! So glad to finally get one. It addresses very well some of the minor nuisances with the crashes in the previous version. I'm very happy with this release. However, not 5 stars. The biggest feature I hoped for and read somewhere was going to be added is a simple "shuffle" button in the playback controls. Really, who needs a repeat/loop function more than shuffle? I'm holding my breath for the next release. It's got to be so simple, right?! Regardless, I appreciate the great and tireless work guys. This one missing feature won't keep me from enjoying it - just not to it's full potential. Keep it up!
Who thought this was a good idea?
It's nice to have the option of browsing the list when a file is playing but seriously who though that puttign the file into a microscopic window when I click to play it was a good idea? Now it's two steps to see the video on the screen but the audio plays immediately and often the volume control doesn't work on the buttons. Then when I click done it doesn't stop it minimizes to the bar. When I say done, I am DONE. If I click the icon to go out of full screen then I want it to minimize. Who though it was a good idea that this app should no long intuitively do what you want it to? Why is it two steps to actually stop the playback of a video? In fact you can pause it but until you exit the app it stays in the thumbnail box. Foolish
