The internet acts as an infinite resource for entertainment, where we get to see movies, listen to songs, play games, socialize online. However, games and songs can be taken offline on our mobile phones; it is a bit difficult to carry all the movies we love on our mobile phones. Even extending the memories of our devices would give us choices of carrying a few movies. Previously, we used to see videos and movies online through the internet browser, which generally uses the Adobe Flash Player plugin. Such arrangement cannot be done for our mobile phones; it is very technical and difficult.
Thanks to the cloud server technology and the development of dedicated mobile apps which do not require any technical knowledge to see online streaming movies and videos. There are unlimited movies out on the internet, and there are several apps that let us access them. Good for all us Movie Buffs!
