5 Best Mobile Apps to Watch Movies for Free

It is true that there are thousands of websites that let the users watch movies and TV series for free, but the problem is that not many of them work well on mobile phones.

In turn, this can take a toll on the performances of the smartphone, making the stream to break too often.

Another big issue is the ads, which pop up each time you tap the screen. For instance, an advertisement may open in a new tab if you pause the video. All of this makes them pretty annoying to the users. The good news is that there is a solution – mobile streaming apps.
