We may not have Netflix or Hulu for our BlackBerry PlayBooks yet, but there are some alternatives out there. One of these alternatives is a new app that was released today, called Movie Vault. While connected to wifi or tethered to your BlackBerry smartphone, you have access to over 900 classic movies, with more being added all the time. The movies are arranged by genre but you can also search by keyword, actor, title, director, and more. Movie Vault is integrated with IMDB for cover art and movie information including ratings, plot summary, and other details.
I like this app. It's laid out really well and is easy to navigate. I would like to see a children's category added just to make it easier to find movies that would appeal to my kids, but that's just me. All movies contained within the Movie Vault application are Public Domain works as classified under Creative Commons. You can pick up Movie Vault for $2.99, so why not pop up some popcorn, hook up the HDMI cables, and settle in for some good old fashioned family fun?
