If you tired of waiting for movies on torrent or downloading them from the torrent sites here is a solution for you. It is the ShowBox app. Though it is not available online on the Google play store, it is available on other app stores. They are mixed feelings about this app and that is bound to happen. It allows users to watch movies in HD for free. The app lets one download any Hollywood movie or TV show aired in the US. One can not only download it but also watch it directly on the app.
One can download it directly or through torrent. Under the direct category, three formats are available. They are 360p, 480p and 720p. Under the torrent category, there are no formats available. The app has a pleasant UI/UX design and also gives the user a smooth streaming experience. As with every good thing, there are certain flaws in this app. The foremost of them is that the app gets a little non-responsive at a time.
It also has an update section that continuously lists the new movies and episodes that are being added to the database of the app. So one can stay updated and the best thing about this app that one does not need to log in any personal information or make an account to access the contents.
It is available on various platforms. The app also uses a reference to IMDB and open subtitles for listing the movies according to ratings and accessing subtitles on the go respectively. Though you need to have an open subtitles account in order to access the subtitles from the app. Open subtitles is the leading subtitles provider in the World Wide Web overtaking its competitor tvsubs.com. The app lets one filter the list of movies and TV shows according to the genre, IMDB rating and year of release. The app has a separate download section that shows all the stuff that is being downloaded along with their progress. There is also a favourite section to list ones’ favourite. The app really has everything to make it loved by the user instantly.
Whether the app is illegal or not is still under debate, the number of users are increasing at an exponential rate. The app is quite similar to Netflix despite the fact that it is free. So there comes the concept of privacy again and the ugly things associated with it.
Though the app is relatively new in the market it has found competitors already. They are Hulu, Crackle, Kodi, TV Portal and Popcorn Time. Though the list goes on and on, these are the most famous ones. The rise of this apps has been due to the reason that ShowBox for i-Phone is been considered illegal and its servers are being taken down. As its popularity is increasing, so are its problem. The Russian-based company really needs to pull something out of the box in order to re-establish itself in this ruthless competitive market.
