Pros and cons of VLC for Mobile app for iPhone and iPad

VLC for Mobile app good for

Great app for what I use it for. I use it on my iPad and only watch shows I have copied to the app. I don’t use any of the advanced features. The only problems I’m having now are: 1) after hitting pause, then unpausing, the picture starts immediately but the sound is off by a second or two. I have two gesture back to get the sound and the picture to re-sync. 2) sometimes, when I gesture back, the screen goes blank. The sound resumes but the picture does not. I have to click on the Done button to exit the current show, then restart it. Overall, this is a great app. It does everything I needed to it to and plays everything I watch.
Stop working after the last update. I like the app when it works.
I tried using the VLC iOS app back on my iPod Touch 2nd Generation and at that time (2010-ish), I hated it because it was just so unwieldy and subtitles didn’t work well. Thus I switched to AV Player and never looked back... until now - I installed out of curiosity and man have things changed - the interface is punchy, love that my library (with its naming convention already optimized for Plex) can be tossed in and organized automatically, subs work wonderfully - I love it thus far. I’m docking a point for the fact that there is not optimization for iPhone X, but once that’s done I will absolutely give this 5/5 stars.
For those who wants another opinion besides the ones arguing that this is a terrible software: This application is based much more on video in storage, instead of through local network. It has solid video playback capabilities as well as a much more refined control over any other application Ive seen. VLC allows for many ways to import your media to the application, such as wirelessly in local network, transferring from a computer, or downloading it from the web. As for all works in progress, it has quite a few bugs like the folder management issues, but Im quite impressed with many of the updates that the devs managed to pushed out, and they often do have regular updates. Really a good application that got a bad rating from the start even if its still being improved upon.
Perfect app to watch movie, just copy the movie and sub amd it all sync perfectly without ads
To be honest I don’t know where all of the bad reviews come from, only thing I have wrong with the app is the fact that the dimensions aren’t fit for the iPhone X yet. Hope they fix that soon?

Some bad moments

Developer keeps making sure people who use iOS7 get a stability update, leaving iOS11 in the utter limbo, you cannot access your own videos you shot, you cannot access iOS file system and the file system cannot access VLC, this app is trash look for something else.
This app needs updates to improve ui and several bugs. The concept however is crucial to have on any device. you must fix the app for iphone x
Would be nice if you guys started supporting the new iPhone. Kind of strange when such an easy implementation goes ignored
Since iOS 11 was released this app has nothing but problems. The support completely sucks and I’m stuck with these issues. Annoying audio loop happens when you pause your show when the charger is plugged in and the audio is going out of the headphone port. Another bug is it glitches and will not let you delete your videos and your forced to delete the app. This app has been plagued with issues in the developers are lazy.
Since last update the UI doesn’t even respond properly on my iPad. Icons and folders don’t respond when I tap on them.
I just updated VLC, and after that when i try to open the application it doesn’t want me to enter my passcode (I set passcode for it before this update) and all I have is a blank screen with orange VLC logo on top :| I have 70GB movie on this application and I can’t reach them.
