The moment you decide to tap in to one of your movie apps, check pop culture headlines or watch one of your favorite shows on the bus ride home, you have decided to become entertained. Good thing we’re able to partake in endless hours of mindless amusement with modern smartphones…and with the plethora of entertainment apps at hand.
Video and movie-streaming apps like HBO GO and Hulu Plus let you watch comedies, popular movies and full episodes of the your favorite TV shows. Apps like these change the way you watch TV and movies by not only letting you unwind to the episodes on the go, but also by making the TV watching experience more social with innovative sharing features. Mobile entertainment apps are even changing the way you purchase movie and event tickets—switch from waiting in line at the box office to ordering tickets through your favorite movie apps in the matter of seconds.
If you’re a reality TV junkie, get the latest celebrity dirt with apps like E! Online or MTV News, or download fun apps like Snookify Me, which lets you dress up your friends to look like the popular MTV reality star Snooki. And if you’re a fan of Hollywood red-carpet events like the Oscars or primetime singing shows like The X Factor, you’ll want to check out the apps that keep you updated on the shows and tuned in to any related celebrity news.
Entertainment isn’t limited to Hollywood, though. We gather apps that help you enjoy fun holidays like Mardi Gras and New Year’s. We realize there’s a wide range of entertainment apps out there, so we at The Recapp sort through all of the clutter to find the best entertainment apps for you and your experience.
