7 best android entertainment apps bestkoditips

If you are scouring the Google Play Store for an entertainment app to curb your appetite for movies, shows, and Live TV then you are looking in the wrong place, my friend. The real entertainment apps for Android are not available in the Play store instead you will find these apps in “APK” format over at their official websites.

Don’t worry! You don’t have to search for websites and different apps anymore because we are making a list of some of the best ones available right now.

Here are 7 entertainment apps which are not available in the Google Play store, but are considered the best out there.

1. Mobdro

Mobdro is one of the best entertainment apps out there that does everything you’d ever need from a media streaming app. It provides you with all the things you’d want to stream. There are not only all the latest and classic movies available for you to play, but also a great collection of TV shows from different countries.

Not only that, but you get to also enjoy live streams from around the world. There are Lve TV streams available in the Mobdro app that you can watch at any time. There are multiple categories available in the Mobdro app which include, but not limited to Gaming, Tech, News, and others. You can choose any of your favorite categories to watch your preferred videos. There’s also a section for podcasts where you can watch your favorite podcasts for free.

Mobdro is a free app, but it does come with ads. So, if you want to get rid of ads then you will have to pay for the premium version.

2. Showbox

Another great Android app has been removed from the Google Play store. It offers a huge catalog of the latest movies and the latest TV shows, but that doesn’t mean you are stuck with the latest media content only. You also get to enjoy a vast array of classic movies and TV shows as well. Show box offers a very intuitive and user-friendly interface that comes without any annoying ads.

You can watch your favorite movies and TV shows in HD quality. The app also supports subtitles so you can enjoy your favorite content with subtitles as well. Best of all, you can download movies and watch them whenever you want.

Apart from that, Showbox lets you filter movies and TV shows by Genre, Rating, and Year of release which makes things easier to find. There’s an extensive library of movies, TV shows, and music which is updated on a regular basis.

If you are a big movie junkie or a TV show fanatic then Showbox is definitely the app for you.

3. Live NetTV

Maybe, you are looking for an Android app that shows you live Tv channels from all around the world. You are in luck because Live NetTV does exactly what the name suggests. It lets you stream a wide variety of TV channels from all over the world. There are more than 800 channels available in this amazing app.

More than 10 countries’ channels are available for live streaming in the Live NetTV app which includes, but not limited to Canada, France, India, Pakistan, and more. There’s also a VoD (Video on Demand) section available in the app where you will find movie streaming for different genres.

The apps’ interface is quite friendly and polished. Everything is organized in a clean way which makes the UI attractive. However, the app does show occasional ads, but that’s alright because you are getting nearly 1000 channels from all over the world completely free, so an ad or two are completely justified. There’s also an option to request a new channel in the app where you can request the developers to add a new channel to the app.

4. Terrarium TV

Another amazing Android app that brings you loads and loads of HD quality movies and TV shows without any fees. Yep, you read that right! Terrarium TV is a completely free app that offers a large collection of HD movies and TV shows. The content catalog is huge enough that you will find almost every movie and TV show in the app.

This app is not available on the Google Play store for obvious reasons, but you can easily download it from their official website or any other alternate android market out there. The best thing about Terrarium Tv is the fact that it not only supports Android phones, but also supports streaming devices like Google Chromecast, Fire TV, and Firestick which means you can watch all these movies and TV shows on your TV through any one of the mentioned streaming devices.

Terrarium TV is a completely free app and doesn’t require you to make an account either. You just open the app and start streaming your favorite content instantly. You can also download movies or TV shows for later viewing.

5. NewPipe

Not all apps outside the Google Play store have to stream movies or TV shows. NewPipe does something completely legal, but still never made its way to Google Play store. NewPipe provides you with a simple and straightforward app to watch YouTube on your Android phone.

Yes, you read that right! YouTube only.

But, it’s miles ahead of the default YouTube app on android. First of all, NewPipe allows you to watch YouTube even on the oldest Android phone, but the best feature is the background play option. Official YouTube app on Android doesn’t allow you to play any music or videos in the background so you have to keep the app on the screen to listen to music which limits your usage of other apps.

However, NewPipe gives you the ability to use YouTube while using any other app at the same time. You can put the NewPipe app in the background and listen to music while you use a different app. This feature alone makes it worth the effort to download it outside of the Google Play store.

6. VidMate

Again, this is not an app that will stream movies or Tv shows for you, but it will help you download those if you want. VidMate is a video downloader that has been removed from the Play store.

The best thing about VidMate is the fact that it can easily download YouTube videos directly. All you have to do is input the URL of the YouTube video in the app and it will download the video for you. This downloader can even download videos that don’t allow downloading on YouTube.

Apart from YouTube, this app will also let you download videos from Instagram and Facebook and also a plethora of other video sharing sites. You can download almost any type of video with the help of VidMate.

If you are looking to download some really entertaining videos then you can do so with VidMate. There’s also a section where you can download movies and TV shows with a single tap. So, if you are a big movie/TV show fan then you will find this section more attractive. All the latest movies and episodes are just a tap away from downloading. Definitely worth a try.

7. Fortnite

Yeah, yeah! This app contains Movies, TV shows, music, and whatever you want.

You can’t talk about entertainment without mentioning a video game or two. So, we are going to mention one of the world’s most popular and highest played video games out there which is none other than Fortnite. Fortnite is a survival battle royale game simialr to PUBG, but instead of focusing on life-like aspects, this game focuses on more over-the-top action. It’s like a combination of survival, battle-royale, and a platformer.

If PUBG and Minecraft had a child then that’d be Fortnite. It’s one of the most played games out there. However, Epic Games has not released the game on Google Play store for some reason. That’s why you will have to head over to official Epic Games website to download the Fortnite app on your Android device.

Fortnite is already available for iOS devices through the App store, but Android devices have to download it from the website for now.

However, developers have mentioned that they will soon release the game on Google Play store, but you don’t have to wait for that because it’s just a few clicks away from downloading. If you are a fan of battle royale games or just want to switch to a new game then Fortnite is definitely a must-try.


We hope you enjoy these entertaining apps that have been removed from the Google Play store. As long as you download these apps from their official websites, they are completely safe to use. Try out these apps and let us know what you think.

Also, feel free to tell us about your favorite Android apps outside the Play store.
