VLC for iOS gets new gestures and a revamped user interface

The latest VLC app update for iOS brings much more than cosmetic changes.


Videolan’s VLC is a much loved media player, its available for a lot of different platforms and is popular due to the fact that it has support for almost all media formats. Its journey over to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch wasn’t a smooth one to begin with, but ever since the app was relaunched for iOS, it has been doing very well. The latest update brings changes that make the app visually compatible with iOS 7, the biggest update Cupertino has ever pushed out for its mobile platform.

The new look of VLC for iOS 7 makes it feel right at home with all of the major user interface changes that Apple has made in iOS 7. Not only that, the app lets users rename any media file from library view and even delete multiple files at once, two nominal features that significantly improve the user experience. New VLC for iOS app also comes with support for downloading media from Google Drive as well as streaming and downloading via Dropbox.

Users can now tap twice to play and pause media, do a horizontal swipe for playback position, and swipe half on the left and right of the screen to adjust brightness and volume respectively. VLC for iOS is free and can be downloaded right away from the App Store.
