Now more than ever, people are looking to watch movies and shows via android and iOS apps. But which ones are rated the best? If your budget is tight then you’ll be looking to cut your outgoings and expensive Sky and cable packages will possibly be the first to go.

So with all this in mind, we’ve compiled a list of the best movie apps for android devices, all of which are completely free.
There’s a reason this app rates number one on so many review sites. ShowBox is a third party digital streaming app that’s available for both android and iOS devices.
