Review from Rodney Matthews
Android client for Mediaportal Works well for TV streaming and my mp4 video library on my HTC wildfire phone and my WM8850 tablet
Looking Quite Dated It's over 2 years old and still looks like crap on a tablet or anything other than a small screen phone It works OK but the guide and the remote need a good working over to bring it to today's standards I'd be willing to shell out $3.99 for an upgrade with a better guide but am glad I didn't shell out the 4 bucks for this version since it looks like is an abandoned app and the paid version offers nothing the free version doesn't have
Functionnal but could be better Very useful if you have a MP setup at home. Not too complicated to configure and works as expected. The interface is pretty ugly and not always to easy/obvious to use (especially the remote control section). Still overall satisfied with this tool =)
Works well but far from perfect. This program mostly works, but there are a few issues I have with it. My smartphone is powerful and when on LAN I should have the option for direct play. Transcoding is an unnecessary waste of system resources, and always reduces the quality of the file. Plex and BS Player both play streaming direct content well, and you should seriously consider it for aMPdroid in the future. I can download the files but an option to steam them without using more than temporary space is preferred.
Works really well Everything seems to work very well, if only it allowed setting server IP instead of having to setup my hosts file just to watch TV on my phone, people without rooted devices will have trouble with that.
Looks good, a bit of work to set up It does look excellent. Bit of work to get setup. I find access to buttons in "remote" difficult (not being tactile) and feel there could be more if a context based view of "now playing". Similarly other features like WOL are only available through a menu... But surely "on known network, not connected, trying to access... Send WOL"
Confusing interface Horribly confusing interface... Lots of forum and manual reading just to get started with the basics. App is trying to do way too much at once. Should separate the remote and streaming functions into different apps, for those of us who want JUST the remote portion.
