Free Movie Streaming App Lets Users Watch Over 700 Great Movies at No Charge; Big Stars; and Popular Genres Make Popcornflix a Unique Movie-Watching App
New York, NY(5/9/2013) -

Popcornflix - the ad-supported, full-length feature, free streaming movie app, has just launched its application for BlackBerry 10, and is available for download for free on the BlackBerry World storefront. The app is available in the US for the BlackBerry Z10 smartphone, and will also be available in the US for the BlackBerry Q10 for the US launch of the smartphone.

Popcornflix makes it easy to browse and select from over 700 theatrically released and independent titles in a wide range of genres, including comedy, family, action/thriller, drama, horror, Bollywood and documentaries. The user interface is simple, and every movie is only two clicks away.

Movie lovers can choose a movie by genre, actor, or director, select from the latest in new arrivals, pick from the site's most popular films, or browse all of the films featuring some of Hollywood's most popular and sought-after actors. New movies are added every day.

The Popcornflix App for BlackBerry 10 makes use of the platform's unique share framework allowing users to share the app with friends and others by posting a link instantly to their Facebook or Twitter account or via email.
