Enjoy Videos on the Go

The Movie Player app makes it possible to enjoy all your favorite movies any time you like on your mobile device. The app supports a huge array of file formats such as mov, mpeg, mmv, avi, mpv, gxf, asf, and plenty more. Many of these types of movie players require video conversion of some sort to play your movie, but that isn't the case with this app. The user experience is quick and simple thanks to the fact there is no conversion necessary. Now even though this app runs on a number of different devices it is recommended you use it on iPhone 4 or later, iPod 4th Gen or later, or an iPad. This ensures the best user experience possible.

This entertainment-based app has 3.5 out of five stars from users and comments are generally quite positive. Users point out that it's great for simple uses but may not fit everyone's needs. This app was last updated just over a year ago when a few minor bug fixes were made. If you plan on using this app with iOS 7 you'll want to download Movie Player 2 instead as it's a new version of the app that features a brand-new user interface, new features, and better performance.
