    "Do you love tv and movies like I do? Well, if you're looking for tv ratings, movie reviews and the ability to watch on the go then you'll love IMDb! Before I found this app I had a tough time finding movies and tv shows I wanted to see, especially reviews I could trust. I would waste time watching something only to find out later it wasn't for me. With IMDb, I can read amazing reviews before I watch, get instant notifications on breaking news about my favorite shows and even get showtimes! IMDb lists just about every show/movie out there and I always find it so easy to locate what I need. I highly recommend IMDb for any true show/movie buffs out there!"

    "It's nice to have an app to catch up on my favorite CW shows (Whose Line!), but the quality of the video stream is pretty bad (4G or WiFi) and honestly, I get better results using a browser and watching from the website. So this needs some fairly serious work, but I appreciate the effort."

    "This app is fantastic for people that want to enjoy Netflix in a Virtual world. It creates a theatrical environment while enjoying the movies and shows you love. The only downside is that the app glitches quite a bit making it a bit frustrating during that time."

    "Tubi TV is kind of like Netflix, but it's free and supported with advertisements. The advertisements are kind of random and they come at regular intervals in the show rather than taking into consideration the pacing of the show and the normal breaks that were written into the story when it originally aired on TV, but you get used to it."
