  • The calculator hd link isn't working for me

    • sorry that was copied from the old post… they do say MusicX is free but I can't find it in my search. Interesting as it seems MusicX is AcePlayer plus a LED flashlight app. Odd combo. I get the feeling these guys made an awesome app now they are stuck trying to create 'something' else to sell, with all thier other apps seemingly to be derivatives of the main AcePlayer App.

  • Another good free option (always free) i stumbled on yesterday is:
    '8playerlight' http://itunes.apple.com/au/app/8player-lite/id383221354?mt=8

    Cant seem to find any limitation to the app even though it's titled 'lite' and there is a paid alternative which is a little confusing. Although ace player seems to be a little quicker scanning and opening files, just slightly.

    Nice find either way!

  • It's a good player, but I'm having trouble to play any movies bigger than 600mb :(. Any help?

  • are there any players for the new ipad that play 1080p smoothly?

  • Must have already expired? Comes up at $2.99 for me.

  • Yeah same. Despite it saying "free for a few days". Missed out again :-(

  • I must say this is a really good app when it comes to play your flac music files. I've got HD quality (3200kbps/96khz) flac files that play flawlessly with this app. My dedicated mp3 player (Cowon J3) can't even play that file!….

  • Guys I just downloaded it for free from the App Store.

  • It' still free! 8:37pm downloading now. 3/7/2012

  • Glad I checked this thread again! Got it, thanks

  • Air Player is also a good alternative….both lite and full. runs beautifully on Apple TV too.
