Nice content - not so great app
This has a lot of variety in content. The problem is that it’s really hard to find what you want. There is no search function. While there are categories, they aren’t organized, not even alphabetically within a category. And there is no watch list so you can’t find and tag something to watch later. Also categories aren’t consistent between the iPad app and the Apple TV app. I found something on one that I couldn’t find on the other. If you don’t mind searching A LOT, you’ll find some fun nostalgic content.

Lots of Content, But No Watch List or Search
This app is made exclusively for impulse watching. There’s no Watchlist to save titles for future viewing. There’s no search function in the version for Apple TV to find movies you might want to see. There’s also no alphabetical or age organization; only titles in random order by category. That makes it terribly inefficient for busy viewers. For instance, if you find out a movie is available on Popcornflix using an app like Just Watch, it could take hours to actually find the movie in the Popcornflix app. The iOS version permits you to register an account, but, since the Apple TV version does not contain a signin means and neither version permits a Watchlist, registering in the iOS version serves no purpose. The app is simply not ready for prime time.

The idea is great, I won’t knock that. A 90 minute movie (1 and a 1/2 hours) quickly becomes a 17 hour movie to get through with the commercials. I HATE commercials as we all do, but a commercial about every 2 minutes for a 90 minute movie makes the movie 100% unwatchable. Maybe if they offered a subscription for a couple of bucks a month that would be okay, but to have to sit through a movie that is extended from 1 1/2 hours to over 3 hours because of commercials is like watching TV, only regular television has LESS commercials. Until that gets fixed this is an immediate uninstall. After the first 35 minutes of trying to watch a movie I just gave up. It’s really just a waste of time at this point. I get that app developers need to make money, but with thousands of viewers there’s no way you aren’t making enough money to at least take half of the ads out. Uninstalled!

Some movies don't have audio and ads are too long.
I wanted to watch the horror found footage film called vhs and vhs 2 but the vhs 2 was strange. It had all the audio EXCEPT for human voices throughout the movie. I even forwarded to multiple scenes but still the same result. Just people’s mouths are moving only. I watched the same scene in an official trailer and it does have audio for human voices. I don’t know what but it’s just something that Popcornflix messed up on and needs to get it fixed ASAP. Also the ads are WAAAAAY too long and too frequent. Every 10 to 15 minutes, I get 2 ads which are 30 seconds long each. Sometimes even 40 seconds and the other 30 seconds. If I’m lucky I get 1 ad which is just 5 seconds and the other 30 seconds but this is rare. It just destroys the mood of the movie. Even if it’s free, I’m considering deleting this app due to its heavy repetitive ad system.

More like 2 1/2 stars really
I love how many movie choices there are , even if I haven't heard of most of the titles . What makes this app almost worthless , is how long it takes for an add to finally buffer so it plays . The movies them selves play seamlessly . But man the ads take for ever to play and they play much like a broken record . I can sit through a minute and a half of ads a few times through the film . No problem . But it takes as long as five minutes for even one of them to play . I thought it was my internet connection but my other free movie apps don't have the same issues . This app would be ideal, if not for that . I hope it gets worked out because this could be a great experience for movie lovers .

I love this app cuz of the good selection of movies and shows, especially for being free, but why aren’t the same shows on the Xbox? I just got PopcornFlix on my Xbox One and tried watching Rango, but all the good shows including Rango, Friday the 13th, and 21 Jumpstreet weren’t there and was just a bunch of bad b movies. Now I’m not saying all b movies are bad, but it was just really low quality stuff

Not bad but....
Definitely needs work. My goodness an video streaming app, though be it free. That doesn’t have a favorites so you don’t have to hunt down what you want later, is just...well....stupid. Makes no sense! I can see why they have no search engine. They don’t have enough content to do this. A lot of their stuff is old but free. Plus they need to at least alphabetize their content. The way it is now is just a category with a mishmash of content. Idea of app...great. Format....is terrible. From what I can see, there's no real support either. When you click on it..it jumps takes you to their other apps in the App Store! Bummer

You get what you pay for
I am legally blind. When I tap on the picture of a movie or TV show it does not say the name of the movie or TV show using voiceover on an iPhone. It is very easy to make an app making sure that it is accessible to the blind. And as I said you get what you pay for it since you didn’t pay for anything you don’t really get good content. All the sci-fi movies are horror. Not bad but terrible even horrible. I don’t think I will be keeping this app. I went through the reviews and I only found one or two that were halfway decent reviews. Of the dozens of reviews I read only one came five stars and even that person complained about it.

Thank you so very very much for the blessings of free movies and tv shows. I am a grandmother{60},disabled, surviving on a small monthly income...so naturally I cannot afford cable tv or any other pay tv. I solely depended on a couple of DVD’s at retail price from Walmart every month. I commend your service and you, because it has truly been a huge blessing for me. I did my research about Popcornflix, and Google gave you a 100% rating.* Thank you*

Don’t wast your memory.
Too glitchy to be worth it. Too many commercials for themselves. “Ad Break 7/7” 5 of the ads are to watch movies you are already watching. The other 2 gun control ads. “Ad break 5/5” all 5 commercials are for movies you are watching. You get 5-7 minutes of movie for 2.5-3.5 minutes of commercials to watch a platform you are already watching. App will hang up halfway through a movie always at a an “Ad break”. With only way to watch the end of the movie is to start over at the beginning. Only to have the movie hang up halfway through again. All the free movie apps are bad. This one is the worst. The most commercials for amount of movie. The most freezing up. The worst layout to find a movie. The worst selection of movies. Every update makes the app perform worse than before the update. Save the memory and stay away from the app. You aren’t missing anything.

Wouldn’t Recommend
I Like that all the movies are free and stuff but there aren’t really any movies that are interesting just old school there aren’t movies like Happy Death Day Or Purge Or things like that not any in the time zone some of us like but if you like old school movies then I would recommend but this isn’t really for people like me who like newer movies as there aren’t any and it says that any English movie is blocked or not allowed to be viewed in my country but when I go to my country it works I kinda see that as racist and but I understand I just would recommend it

Literally no good movie
There are like 0 good movies this app is free I have to admit but there is just old movies. When I go to family movies the most recent is like from 2014 or 2015 is the Highest I’ve seen. Then under recent movies I see some from like the 1990’s and I’m like “wow NEW REALEASES”. I really would use this app more often if the movies were actually in the time zone of now. I have been searching for movie apps and so far this is the only movie app that is actually free that’s why I gave this a two star and not a one star rating.

Low on Current Content
The app has really improved but I think your app is behind on movies and series. I believe this is 2019, but I haven’t even seen 2018 movies. Movies like “ The Lion King”, “Captain Marvel”, “The Hate U Give”, “Aladdin” etc should be there and series like “Blindspot”, “Grown-ish”, “Blackish”, “Stranger Things”, “Games People Play” etc should also be there. I believe that if you can add these types of things to replace your old content, it would be much much better. Thank you, and I hope you take this into consideration 🤗

Not bad
I’d give it a 5 star rating if the search feature worked, it says it doesn’t have certain movies yet when I google “(title of movie) Popcornflix” it shows up so it is on there but just doesn’t show up in search feature. Pretty annoying. Other than that big thing, it’s a pretty awesome site,yes,you have to watch ads but hey I’m getting movies for free. I like it. But please fix search feature.

Movies or series from this century please
Ok I’m not a person who usually writes reviews, but on this app I had too. I was trying to look for a good series to watch after I had finished all the dance moms, Abby lees ultimate dance competition and raising Asia seasons and I downloaded this app but when I got on too the app seriously no movies or series kids or adults from this century would want to watch so if there was something possible as giving a 0 star rating I would. Thank you for spending your time reading this review I’m glad my voice was heard.

Mostly good
My only real problem with this app is that I have to choose which device to play a movie on EVERY time I play a movie. (My thinking is,) if I’m on my iPad that’s where I want to watch. If I want to watch on Apple TV, I’ll download the app on my Apple TV. Same if I want to use whatever other streaming device I may use. Not a big deal, but a little annoying that it doesn’t (at least) remember my last choice.

After reading the reviews on this app I thought I’d give it a try. After downloading and signing up it crashed. every time I try to click on the app to sign up it would say that my email was already in use so I will go to sign in and it would crash again leaving me disappointed and forcing me to uninstall and reinstall thinking that was the issue but it wasn’t. I don’t know why it keeps crashing but I’m done and frustrated. Uninstalling this app.

Hi! Recently there is no sound when you play certain movies. That is very disappointing as I had never had any issues watching movies or shows since downloading the app. The movie Portals has really good rating and it’s disappointing that the dialogue of the actors is missing. I do hope you will fix this issues quickly. Thank you.

No GOOD movies
All the movies I saw were really for adults or baby shows. Being a preteen, I enjoy things like the greatest showman, Deadpool, high school musical, the sandlot and K.C undercover(tv show). I think I would enjoy this app more if it has more movies for “the middle” audience. However, I definitely will give this app a plus because it’s the only one I found that has free movies. For now, I will take the app off my iPod until this problem is fixed.

Too many commercials
I get to go to pay for things somehow, however makes up the commercials. Don’t put so many of them together six or seven at a time is too much. And add into your algorithm a way to know if you’ve already shown the commercial in one movie time. Watching the same commercial every single advertising moment, which sometimes is less than five minutes is not cool.

I’m able to search for a title in the app but no way to save to a watch list or anything. Chromecast doesn’t work - you can hear the movie but an ad shows over top and doesn’t go away. The Apple TV version of the app offers no way of sorting and the categories are incomplete and mislabeled. I was never able to find a title in the tv app that I easily found in the iPhone app. And since Chromecast doesn’t work, I couldn’t watch it.

If I clock away from the app for two seconds and come back ...freakin AD!!!!!!!! And then it’s the same TWO!

The major downfall to this app
This is honestly a good app, with a lot of movies. However, there is no search bar which makes it beyond difficult to find movies and even movies you’ve already started watching. It is a waste of time searching for a specific movie or any movie of that matter and it is a major downfall for this app.

Screen keeps going black and ads freeze
Used to be an enjoyable app until the above issues, making it very irritating and unwatchable. The screen keeps blacking out tho the film is still playing and can hear the audio but can’t see squat. Also, when ads come on they freeze indefinitely and I need to exit the movie and try to resume again. Fix these recurring issues, please!

I get that advertisement is a big thing for promoting others, but having nearly 7 groups of ads playing before 40 minutes of a scary movie I try to watch ruins the whole feel of a scary movie. Not to mention it’s the same ads constantly.

Great app for watching ads!
If you like ads, then this is the app for you. It is a great app for watching ads. Fortunately there are more ads than anything else, and they are seldom interrupted by pesky movies or TV shows. I love spending my streaming bandwidth, device battery and time on multiple, repetitive ad content. Please add more ads and nothing else...especially not updated content that people want to see!

The app is on par with other free streaming apps, but the major downside is that it doesn’t save your progress. Then, when you try to go back to where you were, the movie hits you with ads every time you slide the progress
