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.

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.

The reliable Android app is best for streaming movies, music and more from your PC to your phone or tablet using your wireless LAN connection.
