  1. BigU sounds really great, but you have to pay membership to access the movies
    (now it kinda seems like Netflix)

    • Actually it’s nothing like NetfIix. NetfIix has a very limited amount of movies for streaming where as the bigU Movies app from Cydia offers streaming for all their movies and I can choose to download them if I want. NetfIix charges me $9 every mo and I only had to pay $19.99 for a LIFETIME membership for the bigU Movies app and all the movies are free to watch without having to pay another penny. Both have excellent quality movies however, bigU Movies app seems to get all their movies a month sooner than NetfIix so really this is a No Brainer.

  2. I love bigU Movies app and Installous app cause they’re the only apps I use daily. I’d be lost without both of them. Both of these apps are available on Cydia. bigU Movies app also has an iPad version as well.

  3. I installed the bigU Movies app the other day and realized that I had everything I need from this app so I cancelled Netflix and Blockbuster. bigU is probably one of the best apps I found on Cydia yet.

  4. Thanks for this app review, I have cancelled my Netflix subscription last week after installing the bigU Movies app from Cydia. This app is paving the way of future for how we watch movies on our mobile devices. I can stream the movies or download them and keep them and watch them later when I don’t have internet connection. I am a BIG FAN of the bigU Movies app!!

  5. I read all the comments below and decided to install the bigU Movies app from Cydia. I’m glad I did cause it works great and as advertised. I finished watching a few new movies like Immortal, Tower Heist and Paranormal Activity 3 and the video quality was superb. It’s so worth it!!

  6. just install the bigU app from Cydia and mist say I’m very pleased with the service. Glad I found out about it.

  7. omg i love the bigU Movies app. It’s so addictive I can hardly put my iPad down. So many movies and so little time.
