The people behind the software say that it's the first and only truly end user-friendly release of XBMC available on the Internet.

The software also links to existing websites that provide streaming video content, so there's no piracy going on using the software. The new stable release of the software offers some of the most popular XBMC add-ons pre-configured with the software. New add-ons are being worked on each week according to the developers.
The software uses an external player allowing for hardware accelerated video decoding on just about any Android device out there. You can follow the steps for the installation of the software on your own device on the official website here. The process involves installing the MX Player application.
