- Sony Crackle

Sony Crackle supports just about every device imaginable, including all popular mobile devices, most smart TVs, streaming players, and game consoles, in addition to a regular web browser.
The interface is easy to use and the videos stream smoothly. You don’t need to log in to watch movies and TV shows, but the option is available if you need it.
The free Viewster video app can be installed on a variety of devices and more are in development. I was able to use the Viewster app for iPhone without any issues. It’s easy to find movies and TV shows in all genres, you can filter movies language and even sort results just like you can on the desktop website.
You can also use the Viewster app to browse actor bio pages, watch movie trailers, and read celebrity news.
Yidio’s free video app only works on a few devices, but it’s actually a very handy app that shows you exactly where you need to go to find free movies. You can filter movies in a number of ways, like premiere date, MPAA rating, and genre, and even hide the ones you’ve seen before. Another option is to filter movies by app so that you can find free movies or those available in an app you already have on your iPhone.
On that note, since most of the movies on Yidio are not hosted on the Yidio website, you will be required to install other apps to watch the movies, like Sony Crackle or Hulu.
The free movie app for SnagFilms is available on most major devices, is simple to use, and lets you share movies on social media. You can scroll through the genres in the Movies section and view other movie sections on the main page.

Pluto TV movies are available in a number of genres such as drama, action, and horror. You can also watch the most recently added popular movies and movies on Pluto TV.
As Pluto TV also has live movies, you can start watching them on Channel 51, although the movies can also be found in other channels.
The Pluto TV mobile app allows you to hide channels if you prefer not to watch movies from specific sources, and show descriptions of movies that are currently playing, but are not being broadcast live.
The Tubi app looks almost identical to the desktop website, but it is so well optimized for mobile that it is extremely easy to use. The top of the app has the same featured movies scrolling across the top of the site, with all kinds of different genres mixed in.
All of the same genres, and the search tool, are available through the Tubi app as they are on the site, and each movie cover is large enough to view without having to tap on them.
By choosing a movie, you go to its description page where you can find the release date, duration, rating and genre.
Vudu is well known for the movies you can buy, but if you’re used to the occasional ad, you can watch thousands of movies for free as well. Watching only free movies at Vudu is easy; Just open the Free page in the menu or search for films bearing the FREE WITH ADS label. From here, you can browse all the free Vudu movies from the ones that are new this week, are the most popular, or are in specific genres.
Something else you can do is see all Vudu free movies on their website, then search for a specific movie on the app to watch it from your mobile device.
