MX Media & Entertainment (formerly J2 Interactive)
There are hundreds of video players out there, but most of them try to attract users with just a handful of basic features, offering almost nothing new in terms of functionality and usability. And then there are apps like MX Player that maybe not too impressive visually but provide a toolset that can be seen as professional, and that comes for free. So let's take a closer look at this app.
Design and Usability 3/5
MX Player may be powerful and extremely useful, but it still looks pretty outdated. The interface is bland and boring, and the color scheme is light gray. However, if you have enough determination to overlook the visual aspect of the app, you can find yourself enjoying its simple interface. A couple of hours of using MX Player is enough to get used to it, and then you just start perceiving it not as another app with one or two major functions, but as your go-to video player for every task or file format imaginable.
Key Functions 5/5
When it comes to functionality, few apps can match the MX Player. The app supports just about every popular video format, including WebM and FLV files without any additional downloads or payments. It is also the first Android player to support multi-core decoding that boosts multi-core devices' performance. But what's great about MX Player is that it supports simple gestures for zooming videos, changing volume and brightness, and manage subtitles.
There have been no reports about any significant security problems with MX Player, so we consider it perfectly safe. The app also has its file-sharing system that saves your mobile data, and there is this Kids Lock feature that works as a parental control option, preventing children from accessing other apps or options while still keeping them busy.
MX Player has enough features of three or four video players combined, and they are free for you to use – which makes its popularity look very well deserved. However, this app doesn't just gather all good ideas from the market but also offers a couple of unique features, including the new hardware decoder and the multi-core decoding option. In short, it's a must-have for every user who needs a bit more than just an ability to play video files.
Pros : Exceptional functionality;
Parental control options.
Cons : Bland, boring design;
Occasional minor bugs.
Replay Value 4.5
Average : 3.9
