free movies iphone

Free Movie app via Cydia is another movie downloading app on the iPhone. We have already seen MobileTheatre and MobileCinema app which allows us to download as well as stream movies and TV Shows directly on your iPhone. The app has a pretty interesting icon similar to the default iTunes icon on iPhone which allows you to download and play podcasts and songs.

The app is pretty simple to use and also has a elegant interface with just two tabs namely – ‘Welcome’ and Movies. The Welcome tab has some information about the app and also the requirements. The developer also mentions that the movies listed are not uploaded by him, and they should be downloaded at the owner’s risk. The ‘Movies’ tab has a lot of movies listed alphabetically, though I wish they had an alphabetical scroller at the side of the screen OR a search option to search the movies. As soon as you click on a movie the app redirects you to its safari page i.e. Megaupload (It takes some few seconds to open the page). There you just have to enter the code given and the downloading will start automatically.

Overall, the app is pretty decent and does what it says. However, I wouldn’t rate this app over MobileTheatre Or MobileCinema as it has lesser features and options compared to those two apps. But I do expect some updates to the app. A search option OR an alphabetical scroller will do wonders to the app. The movies are stored in the path var/mobile/library/downloads and can be viewed in dTunes.

 Requirements: The app requires you to download the following apps.

  • Safari download plugin
  • dTunes OR iFile

This is a great app works perfectly. My question is how do you delete the movies you download?

jake November 22, 2010 at 12:13 am

how do i use dtunes its confusing

Test November 22, 2010 at 3:42 am

iDownloader stuff is saved in /private/var/mobile/Applications/91654714-A9F9-4E8E-B487-CB23844BF029/Documents/

Using ifile you can add that folder to favourites and move it to another folder.

For all of you who are wondering, this app is downloaded through CYDIA, which is another app, that you get when you jailbreak your iPod. Try GreenpoisOn to jailbreak it. so stop saying that you can’t find it in the App Store, its obviously not legal to download movies on your ipod. so this is through Jailbreak

Ejrules December 6, 2010 at 7:25 pm

Ok it is in cydia go to search and type in free movies. Ok I download this app I can watch the movies but idk how to delete them pls help the movies taken alot of space on my memory pls help

Ejrules December 7, 2010 at 3:51 am

Ok to delete them you go to the movies you have downloaded and slide your finger across the name of the movie going from left to right

Jacob December 29, 2010 at 9:04 am

How do you download the app??

Lullaby January 30, 2011 at 10:13 am

I downloaded the FREE MOVIES Application and DTunes on Cydia. But when I tried to open FREE MOVIES and starts to download a movie, it says on its ” NOTICE: You need to install iDownloader first before you can download these movies”.

Any suggestions?

Conor February 3, 2011 at 10:19 pm

Worked for me :D

miguel February 15, 2011 at 5:44 pm

How do you delete the movies once you download them?

nm February 20, 2011 at 8:20 am

ejrules had theright answer.
go to your movie downloads, and slide your finger across the movie name, from left to right and a delete box will appear.

Brunn April 22, 2011 at 6:00 pm

My app has a little problem always when i start downloading a movie the app close automaticly :S

Anonymous June 3, 2011 at 8:09 pm

it now tells you that you needs idownloader to be able to download films and that comes at a price from itunes too
