Yidio - App Link


While Yidio is a streaming app, there are some movies that would redirect you to another app – Tubi TV or Sony Crackle –if you want to watch them. That aside, it is a good app.

SnagFilms is an old timer in the streaming business. It is specifically built for classic and documentary movies. While it rarely has the new and trending movies, it makes up for that with a huge library of classic and documentary movies.

Most of the classic movies on the app are in very high quality. The ads level in the app is very low. There are categories for each genre of movies available on the app. One thing that seems annoying is that there is no filter option to sort movies out.

Pluto Tv - App Link

As the name implies, it is not a regular movie streaming app. it works more like a TV and hence contains Channels that show the movies you want to see. The movies and show on the app are in high quality.

The main bargaining chip of the app is streaming speed. As long as you have a stable network, streaming and switching between channels is prettysmooth.

The app is available for download on a lot of devices. You can watch Live premiere of movies on the app.

You should note that the app contains non-movie channels which can make streaming movies a tenuous task. Another issue you should consider is that you cannot re-watch a movie. Hence, unless there is a huge demand for a movie, a channel will not re-broadcast it.

You need not create an account before you can use the app. You can download Pluto TV for your devices HERE

Viewster - App Link


Viewster is a streaming app that allows users to stream movies, shows, news highlights, comedy videos, etc.

Its movies database is not that big but there are some documentary movies you can watch. Most of the movies and videos on the app are of good quality. You can add subtitles to the movies or videos you watch by activating the option when the video is playing. You can also comment or leave a reaction on any of the video you watch.

Hotstar - App Link


This app features only Bollywood movies. From movies to shows to daily soaps, Hotstar has you covered. The app also offers sports and news programs albeit in the Hindi language

A lot of the movies on the app need users to subscribe before they can access it. There are few movies you can watch for free on the app but they are not arranged. Hence, you have to patiently look for them. All movies that do not have ‘Premium’ on it means they are available to stream for free.

The video streaming quality ranges from low (120p) to good (720p). It is available on a few devices. You can download the app for Android HERE and iOS device HERE

Youtube - App Link


Who doesn’t know YouTube right? While the app rarely contains full trending movies, you can still find shows and some old movies. There are channels where you can also watch documentaries.

In my opinion, the best thing about the app is that it allows you to catch up on anything you missed. Students can also watch short length tutorial videos of difficult topics they do not understand.

Please note that some channels might have links that will redirect you to other websites where you can stream trending movies. You need to be sure the sites are legal before proceeding. Otherwise, you can check any of the other apps listed above.
