This app has gone WAY overboard with the ads. I have used it for at least 6 years and have loved it always recommended it to friends. NO MORE! Putting ads up immediately when I open the app, right the hell in the middle of the screen while I'm trying to browse for a local file is OBNOXIOUS. Scroll a little? Here's another useless thing wasting data that I'm completely uninterested in blocking the ability to even browse my files. To top it off, I cannot even find how to exit the app now. Done.

Loved the free version and after a long time of contemplating. Purchased the ad free. Well over a year, switched devices a couple of times and purchase transferred to new device no hassle. If you're like the free version and you're on the fence I can say without hesitation that this app was definitely worth the few bucks. Great investment. Let me just be clear my review is regarding video media. Great.

Can't view albums by artist? I have no idea why this app is so highly rated. I tried it as an alternative to VLC but VLC smokes this app. MX Player doesn't seem to provide the basic capability of listing albums grouped by artist so you can quickly navigate to an artist, then select an album to play. You can either view all songs by an artist or search through the entire list of albums in your music collection, but can't select an artist and see all of their albums. Useless.
