If you are a TV and movie buff, then Kodi is just the kind of app you need. It is an open source, cross-platform and free media center app that enables you to stream a wide range of digital media files.
Interface and Design 8/10
Kodi comes with a customizable and stylish interface that is quite easy to use. The interface of the app is GUI based. Perhaps the only design drawback of the app is that its menu system is not too well laid out and hence can make for unwieldy and labyrinthine experiences at least until you get a hang of things.
Key Functions 9/10
Kodi makes it possible for you to consolidate all your media files at a single destination and store them in an organized manner. The large 10-foot user interface is intended to ensure better legibility, even when you are watching the screen from a distance.
The app does not contain any content on its own and you need to add your own content from a local or remote storage option. The app can be used with a huge collection of extensions, which further help to enhance its usability and functioning.
These extensions can help you in streaming websites, games, lyrics and almost any type of media that you might find interesting. Most importantly the app offers a great versatility in terms of usage, making it possible for you to enjoy your media collection in a smooth and hassle free way. The app also offers good compatibility with remotely controlled hardware as well as software.
Even though the app has been designed to work with a dedicated large screen display, it works almost equally well with smaller screens such as those featured in laptops etc. Kodi offers diverse usability as it is compatible with almost any type of device and across the most popular operating systems. This means that you can use Kodi with your large screen TV, your window based PC or laptop and even a select few mobile phones that are compatible with this innovative software. It can be used like a DVR with your PC or laptop device provided it features a TV card.
Cross Platform Use 9/10
