Media viewer apps are used to display media files, including audio and video files. Media viewer apps are frequently used in the technology sector to showcase new product features or conduct multiple-party conference calls. A well-designed technology media viewer app should allow users to browse, play, pause, adjust volume levels, and mute content with a simple tap or click of a button.
Media viewing apps tend to be similar in functionality to image viewing apps, video viewing apps, and image annotation apps. Popular media viewer apps include YouTube, Netflix, and Hulu.

Media viewer apps can grow rapidly by offering content from various media outlets. In order to attract a wide variety of users, a user must be able to view content from several types of media producers. In addition, the app should have a large library of high quality content from established publishers. The app's interface should be designed in a way that makes it easy for users to seek out relevant content that interests them most.
A media viewer app can face legal risks related to copyright infringement, defamatory content, and the distribution of pornographic materials. It is recommended that media viewer apps take steps to prevent piracy before creating an app with the potential for widespread distribution. Media apps should take measures to protect users from accessing defamation, violent, or pornographic material without their consent. Before distributing your media viewer app, you may want to consult with your legal department to determine if it is necessary (and cost-effective) to license content for use in your application.
