Popcorn Time is a cleverly designed program that allows you to watch any movie available as a Torrent in full HD, complete with subtitles. They of course warn you of the legal issues of doing this and that this program won't even work in England due to British censorship. Still, neat way to show off your ability to tie in a whole bunch of APIs and create a beautiful user experience.
Popcorn Time! is the result of many developers and designers putting a bunch of APIs together to make the experience of watching torrent movies as simple as possible.
We are an open source project. We are from all over the world. We love our movies. And boy, do we love popcorn.
As Time Magazine puts it, Popcorn Time Is So Good at Movie Piracy, Its Scary:
A new app called Popcorn Time raises that very question. Available for Windows, Mac and Linux, Popcorn Time lets you stream the latest movies including American Hustle, Gravity and Frozen with just a couple clicks. The software uses BitTorrent to find and download movies, but eliminates the usual hassle of wading through sketchy torrent sites and waiting for the file to finish downloading.
Basically, its the version of Netflix that youve always wanted and maybe have been willing to pay extra for but that Hollywood may never allow. Its also a flagrant enabler of copyright violation, at least in the United States.
