A good video player should be reliable and free. One of the XDA Community Apps, MX Player, meets both of these requirements. A few days ago, this application was updated to support Android 5.0 Lollipop. Upon reading this, you may think that you would be greeted with some Material Design eye candy, but you would be wrong.

A quiet week overall in the world of Android, though a few interesting news did came our way.

In late September, Google decided to step on NSA’s toes and turn on encryption by default in Android Lollipop. The Nexus 6 is the first Google Nexus device to ship with data encryption enabled right out of the box. According to AnandTech, the Google Nexus 6 performance decreases significantly because of encryption.
