The popular torrent streaming service PopCorn Time is working on an iOS app and according to new information confirmed to Dutch news site iPhoned the app is “almost ready” as they are fixing the latest UI bugs. The app should appear in the app store in the next couple of days.
Popcorn Time already released an app for Android but has had complications to get it on iOS, the app has been build from the ground up to ensure it doesn’t get rejected by Apple, it will also become available on jailbroken devices. The app will have the feature to stream both to Chromecast and the Apple TV.
Popcorn time has gained immense amount of popularity over the last couple of months being caled “the netflix of torrents” offering thousands of movies and TV shows to watch for free using the bit-torrent protocol. The reason why it is such a huge success is because with standard torrent clients you have to download the full movie before being able to watch it, with Popcorn Time you can start watching it immediately and it will “stream” the torrent to your computer.
The app is currently already available on Mac, Linus, Pc and Android. You can download it from the official Popcorn Time website
