Most of you who are familiar with mSpot know the app for its music streaming service; however, the company is now looking to expand on their business model by bringing streaming video on demand to your Android device. The new app, Movies 2, is pretty impressive. I took it for a spin on my Evo, and I must say, it was a pretty enjoyable experience.
I started off simply streaming a few trailers, and it worked seamlessly, so I decided to give an actual movie a spin. Movies 2 brings free movie to your device every week, and this week’s movie was “Bruno”. No, not the ridiculous one released a year or so ago, but another one. Again, the quality was pretty good, and there was positively no lag at all. My only real complaint with this app is a lack of display ratio options; there are few things in this world that make me sadder than seeing a 4:3 video on a widescreen display.
All in all, I’d say that mSpot has the right idea. And, at only $3.99 for a 24 hour rental on new releases, I’d say that the competition had better watch out. Be sure to hit the break for the full presser, and let us know what you think in the comments below.
