Strikingly, streaming giants such as Hulu, HBO, and Netflix have not captured a large segment of the premium streaming market. In fact, it is the free, ad-supported streaming services that are grabbing the most eyeballs these days. These relatively new influxes of free sites are competing to grab the audience's attention and are lining up to become comprehensive cord cutting options. These streaming apps and networks though free are a great bundle of joy for streamers. From an intuitive interface to eye-catching design and content, there is nothing more you would expect from a free streaming site or apps. Today we are reviewing one such app which has risen to prominence in recent times, it is known as Popcornflix. This app allows you to watch TV shows, movies, local files on a variety of devices.

What is Popcornflix?

Popcornflix is a streaming platform that allows users to watch SD quality movies and TV shows without providing any personal information. This review will focus on the app, so all commentary about the website will be limited.

What should you expect from the Popcornflix App?

Popcornflix is available on a dozen different devices. First, you can download it on your mobile phone(s). Other than that, the app can be found on Amazon Fire TV, Xbox 360, Roku, BlackBerry, Samsung, and even gaming consoles such as Xbox 360 and Xbox One. The Popcornflix app supports Chromecast so if you're interested in watching content on your Smart TV, you can do so instantly.

Great in-app experience

Before writing this review, I surveyed every version of Popcornflix created for different platforms. I have to say that the app was the best in comparison to the web app and website. The interface was elegant and the ad placement wasn't obtrusive. Additionally, content discovery on the app is amazing thanks to the search bar and numerous filter options to narrow down the content bucket. The most standout aspect was the hidden menu at the top of the screen which allowed the hero section and body section of the app to stand out more.

Content Galore

Popcornflix is insanely popular among all demographics because of its diverse content range. Movies can be grouped into various genres, such as Comedy, Action, Thriller, Family, Drama, Mystery, Old School Classics, Stand-up Comedy, and Documentaries. There is no need to search for content; the movies are divided into these categories automatically. If you just want to see the latest movies, make sure to check out the New Arrivals section.

Unique Video Player

One of the primary reasons why I became interested in this platform was its unique video player. Popcornflix's player allows you to create GIFs from a video. Not just that, you can add comments to specific parts of the video - similar to the ones on SoundCloud. These comments are a great way to gauge other viewer's opinions about certain scenes, dialogues, and overall screenplay. In order to use these features, you will need to create an account.

Lacks certain Features

Unlike other free streaming platforms that allow subtitles to toggle on and off, Popcornflix has completely omitted this feature. The only toggle options you'll find are volume control, full-screen button, and video movement. While I'm slightly disappointed with the lack of subtitle option, I can still appreciate the ?Theater Mode? after full-screen which allows me to immerse myself in the video.

Multiple Apps

Do you know that Popcornflix offers multiple apps? There are two app versions–an adult version and a kid version. That's a thoughtful gesture from the developers. Though Popcornflix Kids just has kid movies, it lets parents breathe easily without worrying about the content on the regular app. The user interface and design on both the apps are quite similar, so you can use either one with ease.

Popcornflix App Information

Popcornflix has been installed over a million times and is currently running on a 4.53.0 version. If you have Android KitKat or an OS that was released after that, you should have no trouble streaming content on this app.

How to access Popcornflix?

You can access Popcornflix from a variety of devices, including your TV using Chromecast, gaming consoles, or your Roku device. To find the app, you just have to search for the term "Popcornflix app?" and you'll likely find it on the Google Play Store which is likely to be the first link in the search result. You can also install the app directly on your device other than your phone by using Bluestacks or Virtual Box.

Design

I admit that I love the simplistic and intuitive interface of this app. Its super easy to navigate. The hidden menu gives the hero section an extended breathing space, which makes navigating even better. The content is well-organized based on genres on recommendation and the thumbnails stand out because of the dark theme.

App homepage

If you click on TV Shows, it will display all the TV show-related information including seasons, episodes, and ratings. Just below the main banner, you'll also see a Chromecast button which allows you to stream shows right through your device. The header section has a drop-down menu on the left, logo at the center, and Chromecast/search bar towards the right. Under the header section, there are two tabs - Movies and TV Shows. If you click on Movies, the thumbnails will feature all movie-related categories and so on. Under the main banner, you'll find sections such as ?New Arrivals?, ?Most Popular?, and other genre-based content diversification. If you click on TV Shows, it will display all TV show-related information including seasons, episodes, and ratings. Just below the main banner is a Chromecast button which allows you to stream shows right through your device.

Inner Pages

Finally, below that, you have the official website for that particular show. If you click on any title on the homepage, you will be redirected to the inner page. I love how simple yet effective this page is. First, you will see a small banner followed by the title, genre, and ?Play More? button. Under that, you have a short synopsis followed by information related to cast and crew. You will find this information for each and every show. Finally, below that, you have the official website for that particular show.

Content

You cannot reasonably expect high-quality content on a free streaming platform like Popcornflix. However, it's free, so we must compromise in some areas. There is an adequate content library covering a wide range of genres, but don't expect anything extravagant. What I can say for sure is that this app has something for everyone. Older animated content for adults from the 1990s can be found here.

Desktop/Mobile experience

Popcornflix performs flawlessly on most compatible platforms. However, I must advise you that you cannot expect HD or Ultra HD clarity from this app. Sure, it's far better than the pixilated web app version, but it's nothing extraordinary. Aside from that, if you stream on Roku, you would be able to stream conveniently on Standard Definition quality. No matter what streaming experience you enjoy on the app, ads are a fact of life. You'll need to watch at least 15-20 second ads before every stream, and that can quickly become tedious. But if you want to watch the content, that's the price you pay.

Even on Pixel 3, I faced buffering and loading issues with videos. At 32MBPs, I don't consider my internet to be a stumbling block, but if you're streaming, expect issues like these.

Suggestions I have for Popcornflix

If Popcornflix wants to compete with corporation-backed apps like Crackle, it needs to improve its streaming quality significantly. I would urge the developers to do justice to the amazing interface by backing it up with impressive streaming capabilities.

Conclusion

Overall, the Popcornflix app is not a bad streaming option. It has a variety of impressive titles and decent streaming quality. Additionally, it is highly compatible with devices. So, if you are looking for an alternative to Crackle and are finished with Netflix, you can try Popcornflix. Though I am not sure whether this app will satisfy your streaming needs, there is no harm in trying it out.
