    Ok I have a android tablet that I download my torrents on I diem load audiobooks and videos. What's the best way to play audiobooks on this iPhone 7 plus. Also I have downloaded some movies and tv shows and what sucks is when I convert them to the proper format they appear in my photos and aren't labeled or anything.
    What apps do you guys use?

    In android I opened my player and the files were there and labeled and I just played them no matter what format. There has to be a way with his phone

    I already have that downloaded. How do I add the files to a folder? It tells me to tap edit and choose the files to put in the folder but when I tap edit no files come up

    I've only ever done it using a PC or Mac.... in which case: you open iTunes & drag and drop the files into the VLC folder under "applications", when your iDevice is selected in the left-hand pane.
    Hope that helps.

    I found the combination of Plex and sometimes Infuse to work great for me

    When selecting your torrents pick movies that are already mp4. Then you won't need to convert. Or choose mkv and then use Subler to rewrap them as mp4 -- no transcoding necessary.
    Subler will also find and download the movies artwork and metadata and properly categorize them as Movie/TV Show etc.
    Then when you drag the movies into iTunes they'll already be iPhone compatible.
