Sony Crackle supports just about every device imaginable, including all popular mobile devices, most smart TVs, streaming players, and gaming consoles, in addition to a regular web browser.
I tested the iPhone version of the Sony Crackle app and found the interface easy to work with and the videos nice and smooth. I didn’t have to log in to watch movies and TV shows, but the option is there if you need it.
Sony Crackle has free apps for: iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Android, BlackBerry, NOOK tablet, Kindle Fire tablet, Windows Phone, Sprint TV-enabled device, T-Mobile TV-enabled devices, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast, PS Vista, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Sony/Samsung/LG/VIZIO/Toshiba TV, Sony/Samsung/LG/Toshiba Blu-ray players
The Viewster free movie app can be installed on a variety of devices, and more are currently in development.
I was able to use the Viewster app for iPhone without any issues at all. It’s easy to find movies and TV shows in any genre, you can filter the language of the films, and even sort the results like you can on the desktop website.
You can also use the Viewster app to browse through the biography pages of actors, watch movie trailers, and read celebrity news.
See my review of Viewster to see what I think about it, or read my profile of Viewster to learn more about the different types of films that are available, and how it compares to other free movie websites.
Viewster has free apps for: iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Android, Chromecast, Roku, LG tablets, Philips phone, LG/Loewe/Panasonic/Philips/Samsung/Sharp Blu-ray players, Boxee, HP Touchpad, Xbox 360, Arcelik/Grundig/LG/Loewe/Panasonic TV, Philips/Sharp/Technisat/Toshiba/Vestel TV
Yidio's free movie app works on only a few devices, but it's actually a pretty handy app that shows you exactly where you need to go to find free movies.
You can filter the movies in numerous ways, such as by premiere date, MPAA rating, and genre, and even hide the ones you've already seen.
Another option is to filter the movies by app so that you can find free movies or ones that are available in an app you already have on your device.
Yidio has free apps for: iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Android, Windows Phone, Amazon Kindle
The free movie app for SnagFilms is available on most major devices, is simple to use, and lets you share films over social media.
On the iPhone app, you're able to scroll through the genres in the Categories section and view popular, recently added, and other sections of movies on the main page.
SnagFilms has free apps for: iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Android, BlackBerry, Roku, Boxee, Chromecast, Windows 8, Amazon Kindle, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Panasonic Blu-ray player
Popcornflix is another free movie app that lets you watch free movies away from your computer.
A few featured movies scroll across the main page, and you can browse through movies by genre. Once in a genre section, you can sort the films by most viewed or newly added.
You can also add movies to a queue to gather them in one place, even without logging into an account.
Popcornflix has free apps for: iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Android, Amazon Kindle, BlackBerry, Roku, Xbox, Samsung TV
Note: There's also a Popcornflix Kids app for iOS and Android users that's exactly the same as this app except it has films just for kids. FrightPix, on the other hand, is an app owned by the same company that's just for watching horror films from Popcornflix.
Pluto TV is a versatile service that has apps on a variety of smart TV and smartphones. You can use it to watch live TV and movies for free as well as stream on-demand movies.
Pluto TV's movies are available in a number of genres like drama, action, and horror. You can also view the most recently added movies and popular movies on Pluto TV.
Since Pluto TV has live movies too, you can start watching them on Channel 51 onward, though movies are also found in other channels too.
The Pluto TV mobile app lets you hide channels if you'd rather not watch movies from specific sources, as well as view the description of movies that are playing later but that aren't live right now.
Pluto TV has free apps for: Android, iPhone, iPad, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Android TV, Chromecast, Sony TVs, Samsung TVs, Vizio TVs, Windows, and macOS
The Tubi TV app looks almost identical to the desktop website, but it's optimized so well for mobile that it's super easy to use.
The very top of the app has the same featured films that scroll across the top of the website, with all sorts of different genres mixed in.
All the same genres, and the search tool, are available through the Tubi TV app as they are on the website, and every movie cover is large enough to see without having to tap on them.
Choosing a movie will take you to its description page where it shows the release date, duration, rating, and genre.
Tubi TV has free apps for: iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Android, Roku, Chromecast, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Samsung TV, Samsung Blu-ray players.
Internet Archive's app doesn't appear to be structured with streaming films as its main purpose, but it's still very possible to watch its movies from an iOS device.
I used the iPhone app, and found that Internet Archive's movies seemed to be a bit hidden in the menus. Though once found, you can find genres and even sort the movies by popularity, date added, or hand-picked films by Internet Archive.
Note: While these apps aren't the official ones released by Internet Archive (because they don't exist), they still use all the movies from the official Internet Archive website.
