As far as I remember there is nothing published by us about it but there is a good review here from Lifehacker.

As Popcorn Times involves movie streaming from torrents, it's legality is in question, as mentioned in the article too. It's probably the main reason that the site might have closed. I am sorry, but we won't be discussing it here. Will delete the thread in due time.

Not everything there is copyright material. They also have a lot of public domain and other free stuff, as does other torrent based content which we also feature. There is more about the resurrection of PopcornTime here.

Thank you MC, I asked because I wasn't quite sure what sort of application this is.

Thank you for both links. Yes, I have been downloading a lot of torrent based free stuff, using Vuze, which is featured and evaluated here in Gizmo's.

Regards,
