Lua Player – Video Player, Media, HD Popup - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes. I have 10 years of experience across various platforms; from mobile, front-end, to back-end.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

Supporting various device sizes was one of the challenging aspects. There are many apps that support multiple device sizes out there, but here what I mean is resizing the PIP window, together with the size changes of button icons and remembering the last position of window and location; isn't that much simple when working on various devices.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

"Sound hound" is my favorite app. Sometimes, I found touching songs but I have no idea the name of song
to keep in my album. The sound hound app will solve the inconvenience in that situation.

How long have you been working on this app?

It has been almost 7 years since the first launch of Lua Player in 2014. As I am working for a private company on weekdays, I invested in time for app development on weekends.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

In general, people using a video player on the mobile think that video players should cover the full screen as a main functionality and PIP is optional. However, I believe there will be a need for PIP as the main functionality from now on as we are using not only mobile phones but also tablets and other larger devices such as Chromebook, which is a good environment for PIP-based video players.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

Lua Player has a whole different paradigm as compared to all other media players in the app market. They have to run video in full screen by default, but let's be aware that this feature is actually something you are limiting yourself with. I am proud of the fact that Lua Player is the only PIP player app with full functionalities as a video player.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

Integrating social video content like YouTube into the app. There is a technical limitation for that at this stage, but I am keeping an eye on its availability.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

Besides using the app on the mobile phone, I would ask you to use Lua Player on your tablet or any other larger device. It will give you an experience as if you are watching a video on Windows. Also would like you to share this app with your friends.
