Top 5 iPad Movie Apps – Keep in touch with latest movie trailers and funny videos
ou are movie or a television fanatic, then the Apple iPad is the ideal device for you. Apple iPad is a beautiful device with big screen, long battery life, high-resolution display that makes it great medium for watching video, even there is limited possibility of online streaming due to no flash support. So, in this article, I have put together 5 best free apps and websites to watch TV shows and movies on your Apple iPad. The preloaded iTunes and YouTube app is not discussed here (but somewhere else), though both are competitive contenders.
Here’s the list of the best 5 streaming video apps: Hulu Plus, Netflix, Clicker, Crackle, and Snagfilms.
Hulu Plus vs. Netflix
Hulu Plus and Netflix have been battling for eyeballs, and it shows in the data. They cost the same. Both apps add movies 28 days after release and commission original content. Hulu’s strength is TV – Netflix has very few current TV episodes but it boasts the best selection besides the cost-prohibitive iTunes. It also has the highest resolution and, unlike close competitor Hulu Plus, no ads.
Clicker is slightly different from the other apps because it is actually an aggregator. If you find a Netflix title you like, Clicker will open up the Netflix app – assuming you have it – to stream the movie. It also integrates with Hulu Plus, Adult Swim, VEVO (music videos), and Crunchyroll (anime and drama).
Crackle, by Sony, has been criticized for its older content, ads, and bugs, but its claim to fame is offering Seinfeld. You can watch HD trailers from upcoming Sony films, get US showtimes and tickets for movies through Fandango.
IMDb Movies & TV
IMDb has world's largest movies and TV shows collection: more than 2 million movies and TV shows, and more than 4 million actors, directors and cast members, in its comprehensive database. It also offers ratings, user reviews, trailers and photos.
