Mizuu Turns Your Android Device Into A Good-Looking Media Centre

Mizuu Turns Your Android Device Into A Good-Looking Media Centre

Android: Spend time watching movies, TV shows and web videos on your Android phone or tablet? Mizuu can take all of your media, organise it, show you useful information about it, and roll it all up into a really good-looking package.

Mizuu makes watching movies and videos on your phone or tablet much easier. It works with videos you have stored locally, videos you have shared on your Windows or Mac machine (via CIFS or Samba), movies stored on your NAS or other networked storage, and media from the web. Once you connect Mizuu to all of those video sources, it works rather like XBMC or Plex — it will organise them all for you, and download artwork, full descriptions, ratings, reviews and other metadata to complete the media centre experience. You’re free to edit descriptions and add your own notes.

This video at YouTube walks you through its interface so you can get a feel for what the app looks like. Mizuu also syncs with Trakt.tv, so you can keep track of what you’ve watched, when, and what you may be interested in based on what you already like. The app also supports web videos from TED Talks, Reddit and YouTube.

The app will set you back $3.49 at Google Play. The developer offers a 3-day refund window (as opposed to Google Play’s 15-minute window) if you decide Mizuu isn’t for you. Hit the link below to read more or give it a try.
