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
