movie streaming apps

Are you looking for a good app to download movies for free? Check out our reviews on the best free movie apps for streaming to end your search for one.

There are a few things you need to consider when selecting an app to stream movies. Namely- the devices it supports, the movie quality, the interface, and the kind of film available.

Well, if you read this article, you will not have to bother yourself with any of that, as we have done those for you. Below is our review of the best movie apps for streaming in 2020.

1. Crackle

Crackle is an excellent website for free movies. However, unlike may movie sites, Crackle has tons of videos in its catalog, including new movies. The site comes with an easy to use interface with movies sorted into alphabetical order or by date added. Thus, making navigation and finding favorite movies very easy. To further improve its ease of use, films are also categorized by their genre- comedy, action, drama, horror movies, or crime movies. 

Users can find full-length movies, thrillers, and movie clips, and other useful information about the film. So, Crackle is not only a website to download movies but to get a few information about them. 

Unfortunately, Crackle updates its database with new movies and removes old ones. As such, likely, users will not find an old movie on its site. 

Lastly, the site works on numerous devices like iOS, Android, PC, Game consoles, Smart TV, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, and Chromecast

Pros 

  • Excellent interface
  • Suitable for most devices
  • Good video quality
  • No buffering while streaming
  • It is legal
  • No login required

Cons

  • Multiple ads

2. Tubi

Tubi is another outstanding option to consider for free movies. It has a vast catalog of movies, and unlike Crackle, they don’t delete contents. Although its interface is both great and simple to use, the app also features a search option. More so, Tubi sorts all its movies into 35 categories. It contains the typical action, comedy, drama genre found in most sites, and a unique “Not on Netflix” category. This “Not on Netflix” features exciting movies you will not find on Netflix nor other popular streaming sites. 

However, the video quality of Tubi is not outstanding; it is also not bad. To be precise, the quality of the movies is irregular as some can be in HD quality while others can be in SD. 

It is also worth mentioning that there are ads at the start of every video on Tubi. Worse yet, there can be up to 10ads between a full movie. Albeit, these ads are short, and there are almost no free movie apps without advertisements.

All in all, Tubi is an excellent app for free movies, and it supports numerous devices like iOS, Android, Roku, Chromecast, Game console, and some TVs.

Pros

  • Good video quality
  • No login required
  • It has a vast movie catalogue

Cons

  • Some videos are only available to only US or Canada
  • Multiple ads

3. Yidio 

Yidio is an amazing website for free movies. Unlike others, it does not only provides you with free content, but it also links you to videos that are not available on the site. However, the app is not entirely free. While some of its contents doe not require even log in to stream, others require a one-time payment or a subscription to the service to stream. Yet, its free movie database is large. 

The website sorts movies into the typical genres most apps provide. Albeit, it offers more than that. With this app, you can sort movies based on rating filters such as pG-13, PG, G, R, or NR-17. 

All the movies hosted by Yidio are of standard (SD) quality, although some films linked to other websites have a higher quality. Overall, the video quality is good, and it does not buffer. 

  Unfortunately, like other free movies site, Yidio has multiple ads before and within movies. More so, the app only works for a few devices—specifically, Android, iOS, and a web version for PCs.

Pros 

  • Good video quality
  • It provides links to movies on other sites
  • No login required to stream free movies

Cons

  • It is compatible with only a few devices
  • It is not entirely free

4. Vudu

Vudu is a popular video-on-demand streaming app owned by Walmart. Like Yidio, this app is not entirely free. Specifically, it offers a free movie section called “Movies on us” and a paid section where users can find more recent movies. On the paid plan, Vudu allows you to rent movies from $0.9 to $ 5.99 per film or buy from $4.99 to $24.99. 

The videos available on this platform are in SD, HD, HDX, and 4k. Yet, your internet connection determines what option you will get. 

All in all, Vudu is an exceptional app, and it works on multiple devices. 

Pros

  • Excellent video quality
  • It is legal

Cons

  • You may not find recent movies on the free section
  • Not entirely free

5. Popcornflix

This app is another excellent free movie app that comes with a relatively vast catalogue of films. The app features a search option for finding movies quickly. It also sorts its films by genre to give users a wide range of options to watch in one category.

The app does not require a signup to access its contents, and it is available for iOS, Android and Kindle devices, Smart TVs Roku, and Blackberry phones. 

Pros

Cons

  • Multiple ads
  • It contains mostly old movies

6. SnagFilms

SnagFilms made our list because of its excellent compatibility with all mobile phones and other devices.

Like other free movie apps, this one has a lot of movies and a search option for easy navigation. Even more, it features a sort by genre and year released. Yet it standouts for supporting windows devices and its detailed information on each movie. Correctly, the director, cast, and a short plot. 

Pros

  • The fewer number of ads
  • Excellent video quality

Cons

  • It does not have recent movies
