    It's certainly been a long time coming, but VLC for Android is finally in a fully fleshed out and functional form. The folks at Videolabs tweaked the media player app enough to take it out of beta and offer it as a finished product in the Google Play Store. Here's the description,
    It's available for free on the Google Play Store here: VLC for Android - Android Apps on Google Play

    They are calling this version a prerelease. Is this a new grey area for releases?

    I was thinking the same thing. I find it strange that they have kept this under the beta umbrella for so long. I've been using it as my goto video app forever now and can't recall ever having an issue with it.

    They always say it's BETA...so that they can't call it bug free. Hell, Windows is still in beta as far as I'm concerned.
