Streaming Apps

There are many streaming apps that you can use for your devices. There are good ones and not so good ones. I’ve come across apps that work and ones that don’t work at all. The biggest problems people face when streaming on their devices is buffering. No one likes it when they are in the middle of their favorite movie or TV show and then all of a sudden buffering kicks in.

I’ve read lots of reviews from app users that experience buffering. Technology is moving forward to make it more pleasing for us users. If you’re experiencing a lot of buffering issues, you may want to look into what kind of internet speed and router you’re using.

A Very Cool App

If you have the need to watch something on your device and don’t know what app to use, you may want to consider downloading an app called Can I Stream It. This free service is pretty cool. What this service does is let you know which shows or movies are available to stream. Can I Stream.It

This is a must app, especially if you are considering cutting the cord. How it works is by signing up for a free account. What you do is type in the TV show or movie that you’re interested in watching in their search bar. CISI will then give you a list of results of the available streaming services that you can use.

If the show or movie is not available, you can request to get notified when it is available. This eliminates the hassle of you searching all over the net to find a particular show or movie.

The list of results that CISI has are usually in places like Netflix, Amazon, Apple and so on. This is a FREE service that I highly recommend.

TV Apps

There is a ton of apps out there, but these apps people seem to have the least amount of problems when they were using them. All apps are not perfect. Companies are working on their services daily to improve the user experience.

I myself want my shows now and want them to work perfectly, but sometimes we just gotta be patient and let these companies do their work.

Here are some of the apps out there that people seem to have the least amount of problems when they watch them on their devices.

yahoo sportsYahoo Sports if you’re into sports, then this is a great app for you. You can find out the latest scores and updates from any sport you enjoy.

The Streaming App We All Have

I asked all my friends and family what is their favorite app to stream anything on. Of course, they all said YouTube. They all seem to have the same reasons. They are able to watch clips, videos and pretty much anything at one place. I would be surprised if I met someone who doesn’t know anything about YouTube.

Conclusion

There are a bunch of apps out there. In today’s time, it’s nice to have our gadgets and be able to stream our favorite stuff when we are on the go. I personally like YouTube, I enjoy watching lots of clips of funny things that are available at my fingertips. The new app that I enjoy using is CISI. This fun app will give me updates on the latest movie or TV shows I enjoy watching.

  1. Hi Evelyn,
    This site has been a revelation for me, I have heard of streaming but until now i didn’t realize all you can do with it. Guess I’m a little behind the times as they say. I’m way into sports so I may have to download the yahoo app immediately. Thanks for putting the info out there! Best of Luck!

    1. Hey Marant,

      Thanks, today they are making these little devices as big as flash drives to stream. It’s amazing how technology moves so fast. I could barely keep up with it myself. Thanks for your comment. 🙂 Evelyn

  2. I am so glad I found your site. I’m thinking of ditching cable and am looking into alternatives to stream shows and movies. I’ll have to check out these apps you discussed! Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hey Jenny,

      This is a big decision. If your life is all about TV I suggest you keep your cable, but TV is not such a big thing for you, then cutting the cord may be a good move. For me, I like to watch movies and some shows, so it was something I can do without. I know a lot of people who decided to cut the cord and keep their internet. They seem to be fine with the decision. It’s all about preference and saving money. Checking out apps is a great way to start. Thanks for your thoughts. 🙂 Evelyn

  3. Oh wow, Can I Stream It is awesome. I’ve always wanted this but didn’t know it. And it’s great that they even notify you when something appears on your chosen service, that’s super helpful. Thanks for the info!

    1. Hey Bryan,

      I understand how you feel. I’ve come across so many apps that don’t work. I too am a subscriber to Netflix and enjoy using their app and services. Thanks for sharing your experience 🙂 Evelyn

    1. Hey Brandon,

  5. Hey – thanks for this. I’ve found it hard to find a good streaming app. And just recently I downloaded one that infected my computer with adware that I had to get removed so always good to know of apps that come from trusted sources. Definitely going to check out that yahoo sports app.

    1. Hey Nate,

      Oh wow, I try keep my downloads limited because of so many viruses out there. I’m sorry that happen to you. Nothing worse than downloading something you like and what you get is adware.

      I need my scores when I’m on the go and yahoo sports app seems to be a good one to use. Thanks for commenting. 🙂 Evelyn
