People often have a fascination with watching bad movies. Now you can do so on your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch for free with a new app called Popcornflix.
The app lets you search by actor's name, provided you know the actors name that you probably never heard of, or by title or genre.
The downside to free you ask? Well besides being bad movies you also get some ads to go with it. There is no AirPlay support either.
But either way, if you have time to kill this app is the answer.
Popcornflix can stream movies over WiFi or 3G, but if you use 3G and your on an unlimited plan, particularly from AT&T, be prepared to be throttled if you exceed a certain amount of data, as we have talked about in the past on our podcasts. The Popcornflix app requires iOS 5.0 or later as well.
Cricket Wireless, a subsidiary of Leap, has announced the availability of the iPhone 4 and 4S on their network, available June 22nd. The 16GB 4S will cost you $500 in coin, while an 8GB 4 will set you back $400. Both versions are available with Cricket's $55 "unlimited" everything plan. This includes talk, text, and data, but of course with a catch based on their fair use policy, which is 2.3GB of data. Yet another "false advertisement" of the promise of unlimited, as we have discussed on the site and in our podcasts.
Cricket is not the smallest of all carriers that support the iPhone, as C-Spire is another example. Cricket is the first completely prepaid carrier to sell the iPhone, this the biggest difference.
