iMedia Browser 1.2.3

Preview all your media

iMedia makes it easier to browse all your media from one simple interface. The application can show your photos, videos, music and bookmarks found in your Mac's folders. The top of the interface shows the different folders, which you can open up via a drop down arrow to reveal subfolders. The main part shows a preview of all files in a folder. We quite like the sliding bar, which allows you to easily zoom in and out of files. You can also drag and drop any file that you wish to see in iMedia Browser. View full description

iMedia makes it easier to browse all your media from one simple interface. The application can show your photos, videos, music and bookmarks found in your Mac's folders. The top of the interface shows the different folders, which you can open up via a drop down arrow to reveal subfolders. The main part shows a preview of all files in a folder. We quite like the sliding bar, which allows you to easily zoom in and out of files. You can also drag and drop any file that you wish to see in iMedia Browser.

We found that iMedia cleverly manages to unite all media files under one interface. And yet, we sometimes felt that browsing movies or music in the application was not all intuitive. For some file types it just seems more natural to browse from separate applications like iTunes for music. Because iMedia fits all your media files in one place, it can feel a bit cluttered. However some people will find this much more useful to browse through their files quickly and get preview of what is on their Mac.

All in all, iMedia Browser is a useful program to view all your media files from one place.
