Hello everyone,

I’m Adarsh, an Indie dev, I’ve been working for more than three months on my first iOS app, finally I’ve launched it on App Store . My app is called Remote for VLC (aka VLC Mobile Remote), it’s an app to control VLC Media Player on Windows, OS X or Linux. Please give it a try, if possible share your feedback with me

Why our app stands out from other competitors -

  1. All the VLC Remote controller apps’ UI on App store is outdated and very difficult to use because, those apps are designed for older version of iOS and they haven’t updated or optimised to latest version of iOS from years.
  2. Our competitors app’s are very difficult to setup and connect VLC due to lack information about how to setup and use the app
  3. Also users have to pay to use the very basic features (such as playing file) on those apps.
  4. And these apps require additional app on users computers to just to setup the VLC.

On the other hand our app Remote for VLC developed keeping ease of use in mind and follows the Apple’s Human Interface design guidelines. It’s very easy to setup and connect to VLC using built-in Setup Wizard tutorial without requiring any additional apps on users’ computer. Also you do not have to pay for basic features, however if you like to support app development, buy an In-App purchase for small amount which allows you access additional features.
