Moviebox or showbox
« on: January 06, 2015, 10:01:42 AM »
I've heard a few people talking about the moviebox and showbox apps lately. Just wondering if they are safe to download on my ipad or iphone and which should I choose.

Someone much cleverer than me will probably come along and put me right  ;D but my understanding would be that they are basically the same thing? Moviebox is on the ios and showbox on the android platform. I have them both installed on different devices and they look the same to me anyways.

Lenny I have moviebox on my iPad with no problems whatsoever. The iPad previously had to be jailbroken to get moviebox but now it can be installed directly with a bit of jiggery pokery... google it, there are plenty of links and simple instructions. If you're not sure drop me a message.

Showbox is lethal.

There's no downside to it that I've come across.

Downloaded Moviebox and it's asking me to use a free Virtual private network service to view some of the content. Do I just go ahead and do what they say?

Reading through the thread this was going to by question. Is it possible to install this on an iPad and then cast it onto the tv via Chromecast as I have no notion of watching movies on a 9" screen.

Can I double check this isn't going to cause any problems with the Ipad?

I've never been asked to do this on moviebox. Where have you downloaded it from? Its possibly the site you have downloaded it from trying to get you to download a product of theirs? I'd be wary
