MX Player App Review
MX Player is an application that allows users to watch various movies that are stored locally on their devices. MX Player is a default video player, but developers some extra features in order to make the application more useful. MX Player supports a lot of video formats. You can watch videos in WEBM, WMV, XVID, AVI, DIVX, MOV, MP4, MPEG, FLV, MKV formats. For example, the default Android video player does not support many of these formats and codec. If you cannot watch a certain video file, the app will redirect you on a page, where you will be able to install a free codec in order to see the video.
For now, more than 500 million people have downloaded the application on their devices. You can download MX Player latest version on Android devices. There is no MX Player version on iOS with the same developers.
Functionality – 4/5
You will have to provide the app with access to your storage in order to watch movies. Then you can watch any video that is stored on your device locally. First of all, you can add subtitles to your videos. You will have to download subtitles separately. The app supports all the subtitles formats. The other useful feature is that you can watch movies while using another application. In that case, you will hear what is happening in the movie without seeing it. You can enable this feature in the settings.
MX Player can resume your videos after you closed the app. Just open the app whenever you want, and MX Player will show you the timecode of the last movie you watched. The only disadvantage is that there is no playlist feature in MX Player. Hopefully, developers will add this feature in the nearest future.

MX Player has a straightforward design. All the sections are sorted, and you are able to look through your folders within a few taps. The app uses white and blue colors. The background is white. The interface is intuitive. There are only a few sections. You will get used to the app in a matter of seconds.
Usability – 4/5
Usually, the application works nice. It provides its users with all the promised content. But some people say that after the update, some settings may reset to default. But it happens rarely.
