VLC for iOS 7 goes available in App Store this morning. I am a big user, and as well as a fan of VideoLan for introducing VLC media player cross-platforms. Over the years, I become a regular user of VLC media player as my default media-player to play something.
I know there are plenty of players that provide awesome features to users, but I always like how VLC media player handles plenty of media-formats playback support. I guess we should now go ahead to the actual thing. VideoLan has revamped the VLC for iOS with iOS 7 interface changes. The new interface looks inline with iOS 7 UI. The new update also introduces numerous new features that you will love to use on your iOS device.
