In a digitally connected time, it is really easy to enjoy all your movies from your collection on an Android phone or tablet. All you need is one app – the ES File Explorer.
Most Android smartphones and tablets come with micro SD card support using which you can use 32 GB or 64 GB memory cards. You can even store all your movies, music and files in them but despite all these upgrades, PCs continue to be on the top.
When you purchase and download digital content onto your PC which easily has 1 TB or more space to store them all, it is good only when you are able to wirelessly stream them without having to copy paste them into your phone’s memory every time. It saves a lot of time and lets you enjoy a wide range of collection like never before.
Most people would instantly suggest Plex which is definitely the ultimate app when it comes to streaming connect between multiple devices and even relay it on your tv using a Chromecast stick or Roku box.
Plex has a nice user interface, posters and movie information but the problem is that you don’t have complete access to our files in it. If you have to find subtitles, rename a particular file, move or delete it on your phone which would also reflect on your PC’s hard drive, ES File Explorer is the best choice.
