Shoddy video streaming
Mobdro, as an app, offers an easy to use interface for watching all sorts of content online. It provides media from sources by scouring the Internet and sticking them in one place.
Great concept, mediocre execution
Mobdro is a live streaming app that offers all sorts of online videos from independent sources.
This program is used to transform your phone into a full-fledged television set. You can watch a plethora of shows. There are a wide variety of options to choose from. Some of the categories involve official shows and movies while others are from users streaming random content.
As an app that directs you to content from other creators, the competition is difficult to pinpoint. Some could say that sites like Youtube and BitChute are alternatives, while others believe that Netflix and Hulu are better examples. The truth is, Mobdro simply takes content from these providers and gives it to you. It’s morally grey because this application has a premium version. Essentially you would pay them for other people’s work.
Something else that can be frustrating is the quality of streaming that Mobdro provides. It is constantly lagging, and the video playback is choppy. Sometimes the audio doesn’t even match what’s playing. All this becomes even worse when you notice that the ads work just fine, and there are plenty of them.
In the end, it’s a great option for people who want to avoid paying for content. The app requires a lot of work to get out of the 'third-party app' bag.
Where can you run this program?
This program runs on Android devices.
Is there a better alternative?
Yes. Most services, like Youtube, are free and work very well. They may not offer paid content for free, but it’s more than enough for the average user.
It has a nice interface and an easily understandable category system, but it’s very lacking in the quality of service department.
Should you download it?
No. If you’re interested in television programming, or videos in general, search elsewhere.
