MovieBox for iOS devices – Watch and download movies for free on iOS
Most of us that spend a lot of time online daily have heard of MovieBox. The app does not have any official release and therefore you won’t find it on any major app store for any OS system. The app has many great features like being free to download and use. On top of that, the app is also ad-free (something that’s unheard of in this day and age).
What’s MovieBox all about?
For those that are unfamiliar with the MovieBox application, I’ll try to break it down as simple as possible. In short, movieBox is a streaming service that houses thousands of movies. Users can download and watch these movies for free on the MovieBox app. Essentially the app is like Netflix or Youtube with a few small differences. You will see that the interface is extremely simple and the arsenal of entertainment is vast. MovieBox originally started out as an application for Android devices, but now users can enjoy the service on PC and iOS devices. To date, the app has over 80 million users and more than 10,000 movies to watch with the tap of a screen.
Best features of MovieBox for iOS devices
Free: The most important things first. The app doesn’t cost a cent to download or use. From the moment you download the apk file to the moment you run the app for the first time, you’re not expected to make a single payment anywhere along this timeline. The best things in life are, in fact, free (Who would have thought?).
Great interface: Like shortly mentioned above, the interface of the app is simple yet effective. On the homepage are some recommendations on what to watch. They are based on what’s new and what’s trending at the moment. You can watch a movie simply by clicking on the icon.
No registration: This feature has a double-edged sword. Firstly, you don’t have a long and complicated process to complete just to enter the app. Afterwards, you don’t ever have to strain your mind in an attempt to remember the password for the app. This is a feature that many similar apps all have, mainly due to the fact that you have to pay for most of the other streaming apps. Even Youtube, that is a free service, has a registration process if you want to view certain videos.
Ad-free: Usually if apps are free to download and use, they compensate by shoving ads down our throats. This is not the case with MovieBox. There aren’t any ads in sight to distract you from relaxing and enjoying a movie.
How to download and install the MovieBox for iOS devices
This is much easier said than done. In order to install the app on an iOS device, you have to jailbreak the device. There are many guides on the internet on how to accomplish this. I, however, would advise that you do proper research on the advantage and disadvantages of jailbreaking. The decision does rest with you in the end.
Jailbreaking an iPhone makes it possible for the user to download and install third-party applications. Thankfully, we have a way where you can install the MovieBox application without having to Jailbreak the device. Follow these steps below and you’ll be able to use the MovieBox application on your iOS device.
- Go the Installer website using your Apple device. www.iinstaller.net
- Search and install the Emus4u app on the device. You’ll need to enter the device’s code to complete this task.
- Check to make sure that the app has been downloaded on your device. Open the app after that and look for the MovieBox app on the list.
- Click on the install button next to the app. Wait for the app to finish install. The application won’t be able to open because the device will not trust the publisher. Go to the settings of your phone to change this.
- Go to the settings of the device and select the general settings option. After that select the option that’s named “Profiles and device management”
- Mark the app as a trusted one and enjoy your free movies on iOS devices. Now you can open and use the MovieBox application on iOS.
How does it hold up against similar apps?
Well, it is better in a lot of ways, although, it is worth mentioning that not all of the movies always seem to work. I’ve encountered that many of them seem to be down when I tried to watch them. This doesn’t change the fact that it’s totally free to download and use. Most services that have a large and popular library like this one requires payment on a regular basis. On top of that, most other streaming services are littered with advertisements. This one isn’t. I would say that MovieBox is the best way to go about watching movies for free on iPhone. If you want better service, you’ll have to take out your wallet and cough up some bills. On the other hand, apps like Netflix and Youtube don’t require users to jailbreak their devices to function.
In the end
The jailbreaking process is risky and complicated. The jailbreaking process also changes with each version of iOS. That’s why we skipped the jailbreaking process and just followed these easy steps to install the app on our iOS device. MovieBox has a ton of great and classic movies that will keep you entertained for hours on end. The app really stands out from the crowd in the sense that it’s free and there are no ads in sight. The interface is simple and new users won’t have any trouble finding their way around. With MovieBox for iOS, you can download any movie on your device with the app’s unique feature. This way you can save movies for later when connections are weak or data is finished.
