User reviews of Nexus Media Importer
Tried on a non-rooted Xoom. I can see and save files from a USB flash drive to my tablet but video streaming does not seem to work (I tried multiple apps and videos).

Device not responding or can't detect it. With Android 5.1 on the Nexus 7 2012 3G it doesn't work. The image viewer does so I bought this app thinking since it works the same way, it has to work. With pendrives I can see the contents but cannot access or copy them (message: "Device not responding. Try reconnecting OTG:1"), and my USB HDD doesn't even show up. Both are formatted with ext4 FS, the pendrive is 8 GB, the HDD is 1 TB. It's not device or cable problem, everything is fine except your software. Edit: I can copy files as small as a few KB.

Not VLC player friendly. Sometimes it skips frame rate when using VLC player nevertheless it is still a 5 star app.

Simple, fast, perfect. Works great with my Nexus 5, an OTG cable, and Transcend card reader. I particularly appreciate that it lets me share files to social media without copying them to my phone. Also, fast, personal response from the author when I had a question.

Actually works unlike the competitors This is well worth the money imo, the other competitor products just didn't work. This app recognises my USB drive and allows me to viuew and transfer files/photos between the phone and the USB.
