Catching a movie makes everything better and with the power of a portable Android device, you will have that amazing power anywhere and anytime. Stuck in bad weather? Flip out your android smartphone and you are ready to have a great time. Waiting for your daughter’s recital to start? Bruce Wayne will keep you company for a while.

These free movie apps for Android need constant internet connection to stream movies to your device. Only one app allows you to download movies and view them offline. The rest will either need a good 3G/4G LTE connection or standard WiFi connectivity.

Note: The Top 5 apps to watch free movies on Android list contain apps which were tested on a Samsung Galaxy S3 smartphone and Asus Memo Pad 7 HD tablet. The apps were tested on a 3G internet connection as well as a WiFi one. Over the course of one week we watched one movie on each app and tested the experience. Rest assured all of the apps are capable of delivering movies to your Android smartphone or tablet.

1. Popcorn Time – Free

Grab a bucket full please

This is the first time we are listing an app that is in beta and can only be obtained from its own site. But the fact that we are listing it on the number one spot makes it rather special. Popcorn Time is an ingenious app which streams extremely high quality full movies right to your Android device. The app takes a little time to start the stream, which is around 3-4 minutes on the average depending on the quality of the movie. After that you get to experience all the latest movies in full HD resolutions. The sound and the picture quality are never compromised in this app. In short we were impressed with the tenacity, quantity of movies and quality of video provided by this app.


  • All the latest movies are here.
  • Picture quality is amazing.
  • Sound and streaming are perfect.
  • The wait is always worth it.

Notable Feature:

This app is the ultimate choice if you want to watch free movies on Android devices. From dated classics to latest blockbusters, all can be found on Popcorn Time.

2. Viewster – Free


Some indie fun

Viewster has a ton of movies and they are all good. Sure most of them are not mainstream ones but they are free and entertaining. To us that’s all that matters. The reason we are not ranking it first is that some users are complaining about the movies no running. We didn’t have any problems while testing the app and watched a full movie without any hitches. If you find any inconsistencies, you can always try the number one app on the list for your movie fix on the go.


  • A great and clean interface.
  • Nice movies with a touch of indies.
  • Movies take a little while to play but the quality is nice.

Notable Feature:

If you are a fan of B-rated movies, this is the best app you can get. While the movies are not big, they certainly are interesting.


3. Watch Movies Fast – Free

Access flicks fast

Are you in a hurry? Need to go to work but want to watch a little movie first? Install Watch Movies Fast and you will be watching movies in no time at all. The best thing about this app is the vastness of the genres it supports. From horror to mythology and from romance to historical, almost every major genre is included in this app. The stream quality is also good but not amazing hence the third place on our list.


  • Huge amount of movies.
  • Separate categories for Children and cartoons.
  • War is listed separately from action.

Notable Feature:

The simple interface of Watch Movies Fast makes it one of the fastest movie apps around. The app is also very light on resources and comes in a small sized package.


4. Movie Tube Ex – Free

Small yet powerful

Sometimes you just can’t make up your mind about the movie selection. For times like these, Movie Tube Ex is the best app to consult. This app lists movies from far off lands and presents them in a neat little bundle. Sure there are not a ton of movies available on this app but the variety it provides is matched by none.


  • Smooth interface with large icons.
  • Movies, anime and cartoons.
  • The interface is very sleek.

Notable Feature:

The app is very fast when it comes to finding the movies you want to watch. Browsing the list never gets old thanks to the huge thumbnail icons.


5. Hubi – Free


Grab everything

Hubi is more of a tool than an actual app which allows you to watch free movies on Android. What it basically does is get links from you and helps you download the movie hosted on that particular link. For example if you were watching anime on some site, you can easily download the video with this handy app and continue watching even if you go offline. Same goes for movies and other videos. The app can also stream videos from restricted sites and without even consulting another app.


  • Very basic interface.
  • The app also supports download services.
  • Streaming and downloading are seamless.

Notable Feature:

The app actively searches for the video/movie on a given link which takes a little time. Once that process is done, the video is directly downloaded to your smartphone or tablet.



We are aware that some of the apps may not work on every smartphone, but we are certainly sure that the number one app will work flawlessly. We have tested that app on around 4 devices and it has always delivered. That app is easily the best app that allows you to watch free Movies on Android. Tell us about the cool movies you see with the apps listed in this article. We are always up for a good movie and would love to hear what you like.

    crap list, Netflix should not be here. Google ‘Showbox APK’ or ‘Cartoon HD APK’ for the real deal people.

  2. Lilly says

    I don’t really agree with the big #1, because everytime I want to watch a movie, something is wrong and it can not load the video, and it did load once, but then it started saying that the video is too big and you need more space on your phone. And I’ve got like, 460 mb on my phone but the video is 950+ mb so I can’t watch it. And that’s a shame, because popcorn time on the pc is great.

      We recommend you to free up some space in your mobile. Anyways are you able to play movies with other app that we have listed?
      Thanks for your inputs. We will consider this when we rewrite the article and rank the apps accordingly.
