    This is by far the best media server app for WP. Feature rich and fast.

    Best media app ever

    It doesn't support chromecast on Windows phones, but it does on android. We bought it for me because it worked on my husbands phone. Now trying to get a refund and we can't find a way to contact them. DO NOT DOWNLOAD! Since we couldn't find contact info directly to them I have contacted the Better Business Bureau. Again, DO NOT DOWNLOAD!!!!!!

    All it needs is a transparent start menu icon for 8.1 beta.

    Unable to connect to server. No way to contact anyone who may be able to help me. Read tutorial and still can't connect. Will be uninstalling and definitely not recommending this.

    Previous version had search functionality and showed all my media. Current version has ****** filter system and no search and doesn't show half of my stuff. Do not buy until they fix this!!!!!!

    I was under the impression that this could play local files stored on my phone. Such a simple task, and doesn't have it.

    sync has made all the difference! and it keeps getting better. Would like better control of other clients through a remote, but loving the updates. Can't wait for Xbox one!
