VLC for iOS gets a new look, Google Drive/Dropbox streaming

VideoLAN’s popular media player VLC for iOS has been upgraded to 2.2 with a revamped iOS 7-style interface, along with new multi-touch gestures for easier navigation.

Google Drive integration and Dropbox streaming should make it much easier to access your media. And if that’s not enough, the new build also adds support for HTTP Live Streaming, m3u streams and https playback.

Media library improvements see TV shows now sorted by season and episode numbers. Any item can now be renamed in the library view, and you’re able to delete multiple items in a single step.

Low-level additions include new support for downloading files from UPnP servers, "dramatically" improved Wi-Fi upload reliability and convenient support for system-wide HTTP proxy settings.

There are plenty of useful smaller tweaks, too, ranging from new FTP server bookmarks to support for repeating the currently playing item.

An official blog post on the release has more details, if you need them, otherwise VLC for iOS 2.2 is available now.
