With the number of paid video streaming applications shooting up, it is rare to find an app which provides high-quality spam free video streaming facilities without any payment. Mobdro is one such app which provides the users with a plethora free videos from across a number of sites under one platform.
The site has received mixed reviews from various user forums but the main fact which keeps it going is the benefits that the users get their free membership. The app has provisions for a paid membership plan as well. The app uses a variety of video streaming platforms to stack up its thick video library.
Interface & Designing
The Mobdro application has a pretty attractive design in an aim to enhance the video streaming experience of the users. However if one has used any other video streaming apps or even YouTube, it is obvious that he might find similarities in the user interface.
The content or the videos are sorted into several categories for the easy accessibility by the viewers. May it be TV shows, may it be sports or may it be music, users can find piles of free content under every category. The drawback that most users find is the inability to toggle between the episodes of a specific show. If a user clicks on a specific show, they are directed to an episode directly without asking for any further preferences.
This specific feature integrated on the Mobdro app has received several criticisms. However balancing the flaws, Mobdro has added a unique ‘share’ feature using which users can get to know what their friends are watching.
Currently, Mobdro is available only for Android platforms. However, the users need to be on Android 4.1 or above in order to be able to use this application on their smart phones. If the users go on a search in the app store, they can end up installing some fake apps that find a place over there. Fake apps under the same name also exist on the iOS platform.
However, the official site of Mobdro clearly specifies that the Mobdro app is available only for Android devices.
How To Download App?
Although the app is available on Android platform, the app cannot be directly downloaded from the Google Play Store. There are a number of apps on the Play Store which share the same name and logo as the original Mobdro app but are fake. The app can only be downloaded from the official site of the Mobdro app only after following the specified steps.
The steps that the users need to follow in order to download the apk file of the Mobdro app are clearly mentioned on the official site. The users should not end up downloading fake apps from the Play Store since these fake apps have the potential to cause harm to the smart phones.
After Download Follow Simple Process To Install

Plan & Pricing
The app is, of course, free to download. But the users are provided with two membership choices after downloading in order to access the data. The two varieties include a freemium (free membership plan) and a premium (paid membership plan) version.
When a user pays for the premium membership plan, he can enjoy certain benefits like ad free streaming experience, a large content volume and some more. The price that the users need to pay so as to get the premium membership is 2.99 Euros per year.
Still, the two membership types do not have much difference and a user willing to gain access to a decent amount of free content can always opt for the freemium version and would not be disappointed.
Content On Mobdro App
The Mobdro app does not have content of its own, rather compiles videos from other platforms. There are several categories with a good number of videos under each category. Some of the categories also have a live streaming section like the Sports section has ESPN live streaming.
There have been complaints regarding the streaming quality on the site where the users complain of a laggy video. The video quality is decent. The app uses a powerful search tool to spot the exact search by the user depending on the keywords. Users can also store videos offline for; ater viewing and this feature has received much applause from the users.
With the number of streaming apps rising every day, Mobdro still needs to upgrade in terms of UI and features to assert a decent position among others. As of now, the app is a decent choice for getting free video streaming. Just make sure that you do not end up installing the wrong app after all.
