If you have an internet connection and you do not have this installed on your laptop, pad, tablet or desktop... you don't know what you are missing for FREE. The release one should work with unless you are a programmer is Kodi v16.1 “Jarvis”.
Once installed, take your time and look around. Though it can organize all of your music, images and video that is on your hard drive, one of the nicer features it offers is access to more free movies than one can watch in a lifetime. The two apps used most at this end are PopcornFlix and Play Box HD.
How to add or remove apps for movies:
Open Kodi. Once open you will see a floating menu bar with options.
A list of what is already installed will appear.
Look for the "get more".. link at the end of the list. That is where you can scroll through what is available.. delete what you do not want from the list by uninstalling or install something that you fancy. There is JUNK and items from some other nations that will not work due to restrictions.... but hey, for free! What does work makes it a great app to have.
Finally. To see what you have as icons vs text:
On the extreme left ( no not the White House ) there is a slide out menu. On the top is your view options. Thats it. I like the icon view over text -- but to each their own.
