BubbleUPnP

BubbleUPnP

BubbleUPnP is a feature-laden UPnP/DLNA control point and an UPnP media renderer. This app allows users to listen to music and watch videos on your network from external UPnP Media Servers.

There is a paid version available which removes the limitations and ads of the free version.

Features:

Verdict:

There is a lot to like about BubbleUPnP. If it wasn't for the fact that the free version is limited to a playlist of 16 tracks, BubbleUPnP would have scored higher.

7/10
