This is not my work, I'm just sharing the joy...

Currently in beta testing! Not a final product.

I've been working on this for a little while now and finally have
something I think you all will like. The app allows for users to browse Popcorn Time movies, watch them on device, and cast them to Chromecast.

How does it work:

The movies are not actually downloaded on phone, you must have my modified Popcorn Time PC client running.
Popcorn Time hosts a remote ui, and in turn the video file which is then played back on phone, tablet, or chromecast.

How to setup

Launch Popcorn Time PC client from mega link below

Open PopcornCompanion app

Click 3 dot menu in top right

Click settings

Enter the local IP of your PC running popcorn time (or regular IP if you port forward) How to find local IP


PC Client (Windows only atm)

Android APP (APK) or Mirror #2 for APK

Source code:

And Flixtor, the one which is surprisingly still on the google play store...

And for a new one you just won't regret downloading called Zona which has TV shows, movies, music and live TV channels streaming:

*Warning: everything is in Russian. Only the pc one is in English but the movie covers are Russian but the audio and subtitle are in English or Russian.
