WATCHED - Multimedia Browser is an app that promises to bring you ‘true entertainment.' It gathers multimedia content from various websites and lets you browse and watch it for free through a streamlined user interface.
Packed with content
This browser application grants you access to lots of multimedia content in a single handy programme. It collects titles from popular TV show streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu.
A combination of this amount of variety and a sleek user interface creates a handy programme that doesn't limit you to one content provider. Plus, you can run it on Android and iOS mobile devices 100% free of charge.
Ease of use
This easy-to-use app features close to no learning curve. Once you download and install it on your mobile, you'll find a plus sign on the top right corner of your screen. You just enter it, type in the URL of your desired show or browse until you find a video you want to watch, and play it through the app.
The UI features a high level of customisability, as well. You can change several features, from language to screen orientation. You will want to open the developer mode to configure the dashboard.
An unfortunate number of bugs
All of this aside though, this app is still new and comes with a lot of performance issues. Sometimes, you might select a stream, and it won't load at all. It could also happen that titles only have servers with foreign audio.
Even if you find a show that you want to watch, the app could lag while playing the stream, disrupting your enjoyment of the entertainment. You can also choose subtitles in various languages, theoretically, but it doesn't always work.
Overall, while this app shows so much potential, it fails to live up to the expectations. The interface is sleek but glitchy; the offer of languages for subtitles, impressive but not always correct; and free streams often fail to load. This app can do with some more improvements.
