App Review: Movie Planet

Watch free movies on your Windows Phone with this free app!

Movie Planet lets you access free (illegal) movies and stream or download them to your phone. This app lets you easily view movies from websites that might otherwise require Adobe Flash. Plus, you don’t have to hassle with signing up for any accounts on websites.

Overall, the best thing about Movie Planet is that it generally “just works”. You’re never wondering if a website will require flash to watch the movie, or if you need an account, etc. You can simply click on a movie from the website and Movie Planet will kick in and detect potential movie sources and provide a “play” button for you to view them with.

Now you might run into some dead movie sources, but that’s the nature of illegal movies… nothing is perfect. You might have to try a few sources before finding one that works. And the video might have Chinese subtitles… but that’s what you get for the price of free.

The second best thing about Movie Planet is that it lets you download movies in the background. You need to be charging your phone in order for movies to download, but that means you could queue up a bunch of downloads and your phone will download them overnight, without the app even being open!

Movie Planet isn’t perfect. The interface can be clunky. To download a movie, you first have to start playing it, and then you’re provided the option to download. When selecting movies from your downloads, it uses an unfriendly technique where when you select a movie, it simply highlights it, and you have to use the app bar to play it. The app should instead navigate to a page displaying just that movie, like any quality app does.QRCode

But overall, Movie Planet gets the job done! You can find it in the Store for FREE.
