    This is a beta. The developer said so on xda forum

      Thanks for the tip 🙂

    the application didnt find any video stored on my device, cannot add this manually, for now its a junk. does anybody know how it works?

    • Kamal

      it adds videos which are in “video” folder. I can see videos and play them too.

  • Just the name. The WP version has none of the features that make MX popular and top used app. It doesn’t even pick up all of the videos.
    Those features listed above aren’t available. Borrowing features list from from Android ain’t a good thing.

      I couldn’t agree more with Narender. Android’s open APIs are what make the apps what they are. On my Lumia, the same apps are nowhere near as good. E.g. WhatsApp is still really poor on my old Lumia 520. I still can’t send videos I have taken to friends. I was glad to return to Android after a year on Windows Phone.

      Kamal’s trying to be the guy who is still friends with both sides after a breakup.. It’s not easy though, eventually you’ll need to pick your loyalty 😛 Mine is with Nokia.

      Here’s some more interesting stuff that I found out:

      * Nokia X support for Z Launcher is completed (

      * Nokia’s looking into a Firefox OS port of Z Launcher ( Firefox OS phones from Nokia could replace Asha range, perhaps? You heard it here first 😉

        I don’t take life “as hard” and don’t complicate it. I cover what I like to and that’s the deal!! Thanks for the tips, though 🙂

        One more thing, we will cover Android more as soon as Nokia N1 is out.

        • JLIT99

          Great news! Looking forward to it

    • Kamal

      Early Beta, as we know now. Ha Ha! That’s a list to look forward too, in this case :D.
