PopCorn time gained notoriety by allowing viewing of movies and TV normally needing downloading via torrents right on your iOS device. The “Netflix of BitTorrent,” Popcorn Time could be installed on your iOS device without jailbreaking but success seems to vary.  PlayBox offers Popcorn Time-esque movie viewing for those on Android and iOS, and for those on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, your device will not need to be jailbroken in advance.
What REALLY separates PlayBox from PopCorn Time is the ability to download movies directly to your device for playback.[mks_col][mks_one_half] PlayBox For iOS, A Rival For PopCorn Time That Doesn’t Need Jailbreaking[/mks_one_half][mks_one_half] PlayBox For iOS, A Rival For PopCorn Time That Doesn’t Need Jailbreaking[/mks_one_half] [/mks_col]

Once you’ve sent the email you receive a reply and then it’s just a question of waiting. The email you’ve sent adds your device to their own certification system.

In my case about 24 hours when I jumped back into the app to see that everything was activated.
Once installed there’s the options for new and popular movies

Update

PlayBox Crashing On Start Up

I’ve had quite a lot of emails and comments saying that Playbox doesnt load, crashes on start up or that PlayBox doesnt work anymore.

It seems that Apple have revoked the certificate that Playbox was using to load up.  As you can see over at http://playboxhd.com there is no longer any links to download the app so for now it’s a question of sitting tight and waiting.

If you have managed to get Playbox to work please let the site now and we’ll update out findings.

Playbox is now in the app store, allowing you FULL download and streaming of movies.
