By far the most popular app for watching movies and TV shows, Netflix is a pleasure to use if you like to keep up with all the latest series and movies in town. Browse through a gigantic library of reels and choose what you want to watch according to your mood! It can be a tad bit slow sometimes, but that’s ok compared to the stuff it is packed with.
IMDb is the perfect movie database! If there’s anything you want to search about movies, this is the perfect app to go to. IMDb allows you to see full cast lists for films, get more information about those actors, read trivia and also participate, discuss and review movies. For a serious movie buff, there are lists you can make (and lists you can browse). Watch out, it’s addictive!
YouTube, as you already know, is the largest video-hosting website in the world packed with trailers and videos. If you’re lucky you will also find complete movies. The app is a pleasure to use and has you coming back for more. It offers a stunning interface with a user-friendly browse and search option. You can also create, save and share your favourite videos and playlists with friends. The playlist part is what interests a movie buff more than anything else: you can create and share playlists of your favorite scenes from movies.
This definitely is one movie app that comes with great design, ease of use and a fantastic feature set. While CineXPlayer is a simple video player, when you look properly there is a lot more than that including Dolby Digital audio processing, on-the-fly 3D conversion and live TV features (when you subscribe). The way it’s built, you don’t need to convert your video files to .MP4 to play them on your iPad; instead you just need to add them to the app through iTunes. The best part is that you can simultaneously view IMDb without having to switch windows.
