The desktop VLC is arguably the most applauded open-source multimedia-playing application. Now it is taking its versatility, layman-friendliness, and comprehensibility to the iPad.

The ’s capability is at par with its notebook contemporaries, with a bit of an exemption with non-Apple-supported-format conversions, which are a bit rigorous. This puts at work in the tablet version.

The is simpler than the desktop version, yet fairer. It presents items on the playlist as thumbnails and together in a grid, and you may start scanning them as you scroll. HD movies are marked as such, while partly-seen clips are overlaid with a pie-shaped indicator.

And with a quick finger touch, VLC will start playing your movie. If the app detects an iPad task-incapability, it will ask if you want to get it on with anyway. Not all file formats work with iPad’s VLC though, while subtitles do. You will miss the volume-boost capability of the desktop app in this upcoming version, which will hit the store for free.
