One of the major headaches people have when trying to watch movies on their iPhone and iPad is finding a player that supports the files downloaded. Before nPlayer, you had to convert your file in order for certain players to recognize the movie. With nPlayer, you no longer have to convert! It supports many of the video files and codex out there.

Playing music, videos, movies, and even slideshows from your pictures is simple with nPlayer. The files do not even have to be taking up room on your iPhone to play; you can connect via Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and FTP. The streaming feature in nPlayer is essential for those of us who have limited space on their iPhone or iPad.

The user interface is smooth, but takes a bit of time to learn. Once you understand the gestures and controls, you will be astonished at what you can do with it that other players have not been able to manage in the past. Some of the gestures allow you to adjust brightness, volume, and screen size. Of course, these are just a few that nPlayer offers, there are several more.


The WiFi transfer is a nice addition. Once you turn it on, and IP address displays. Go to any other device or computer to put the IP address in to transfer files to your iPhone or iPad. Simple and easy, no big detailed instructions needed.

Another great feature of nPlayer is the ability to send your videos, movies, and pictures to display on other devices. nPlayer now supports Chromecast, video cast for Smart TV, and HDMI output.
