VLC collates all your video and audio files from your phone and puts them onto the home screen. Furthermore, it has separate tabs for video files and audio files for ease in navigation. The interface is simple and self explanatory, and also has the search bar to find relevant files. The app retains its trademark orange and white color combination throughout.

The description still reads that the app is in its beta version, so the company might have just made the beta version public as of now. You might experience some instability, though the app ran smoothly in our brief time with it. This beta version was released earlier in December to eager testers. You can download the app from the Windows Phone Store here.
