It has been estimated that over 1 billion people own a Smartphone, no longer is the mobile phone a simple device to make a telephone call from, it is your mobile entertainment centre. With displays getting brighter, larger and memory capacity increasing many people now are requesting that they have access to their favourite movies via their Smartphone’s in order to watch them when they are travelling or simply commuting to work.
For iPhones downloading movies is a rather simple business, just a couple of simple clicks of Apples iTunes programme and you can access a wide variety of the newest blockbuster films for download in the iTunes store. From there they will download into the iTunes programme waiting to be synced with your iPhone device. However when downloading movies from iTunes there is not a lot of other options to watch them on, due to Apple’s copywriting of its products you are unable to watch your films via a DVD player or legally change the format to work with other players, you can watch the film on your TV however but you will need to either purchase a variety of additional components or purchase an Apple TV something that a lot of people are unwilling to do.
However there is an alternative open to not only people with iPhones but others who have contracts with differing Smartphone makes. There is websites that offers movie downloads to your Smartphone that are free from any rights management status. These website offer your downloads as unrestricted MP4 files which can then be easily transferred to the phone of your choice, the best part of using this sort of service is that it is not restricted to your Smartphone you can then use this file on any other format i.e. transferring it to watch on a DVD.
Imovies is probably one of the best sites that you can download movies for your mobile phone, for a small subscription charge you will have unlimited access to their movie library, when you go to download your choice of film you can choose the format that you want it downloaded in, this even makes it similar by showing you options for downloading onto a Smartphone. Not only that but if you access the website from your Smartphone you can stream the movie live, saving your precious memory for more Angry Birds games.
With the way the Smartphone’s are taking over from the regular mobile and cell phones it is no wonder more people are using them for all their entertainment needs. With each generation of phone getting more powerful soon people will be able to download whole libraries of films onto their devices. This will push the market into producing newer, faster and more efficient ways into being able to make movies available to all. Plus you never know, Apple may start to allow their products to be sold without the Digital Rights Management meaning being able to play your iTunes bought films on any platform you wished.
