If you are looking for the best free videos to play on your smartphone or tablet, Mobdro is no longer the app you need. There was a day, when this Android app was constantly looking for the most curious, surprising and/or funny content for the user to enjoy, but this is no longer the case.
Similar to watching TV the old-fashioned way
When it was working properly, this service showed a list of channels in constant broadcast. These were channels, without the possibility of watching on-demand programming, organized in the following categories that now, although still accessible from the main interface of the app, are completely empty:
- Generic channels.
Although there are hundreds of alternatives to watch TV online and nowadays paying for a subscription to a streaming movie and series service like Netflix or HBO is not a big outlay, many users still miss the proper functioning of Mobdro. With it, they could easily discover and find videos from anywhere in the world, subject and language, including TV channels; organize videos and filter them according to different criteria or play or share thematic channels. Today it's all history.
The premium version of Mobdro that never saw the light of day
In addition to all these options that were offered for free until the service had legal problems, those responsible for the development of the app intended to launch a premium paid version to further improve the user experience. They did not have the opportunity and the project had to close before this option was ready. However, the improvements were to be as follows:
- Totally ad-free for a cleaner viewing experience.
- Ability to download streaming videos for offline playback at any time.
- Compatibility with Chromecast to be able to play the videos on big screen.
- Sleep timer to schedule the shutdown of the application and avoid unnecessary battery consumption.
