Popcorn Time now available through Cydia for iOS If you have a jailbroken iOS device, your wait is over: Popcorn Time is finally available for iPads, iPhones and iPods.
The team behind the popular streaming service has made the download available through their own Cydia repository.

Reads the email we received:

iPhones, iPads and iPod touch users can start watching the coolest most awesome movies and TV shows directly on their device.
We're so happy and proud.
After only 5.5 months, Popcorn Time is available on all major platforms!
And this is only the beginning, trust us. Our future plans are huge.
We're on the road to becoming not only the ultimate watching experience but also the safest with the free built in VPN we've worked so hard on to ensure our user's safety."


There were a few notes, however, since the iOS version is still a clear beta.

* This first version of Popcorn Time for iOS doesn't have Chromecast and Airplay support like the Android and desktop versions do, but we're already working on them so it should be available in one of the upcoming releases.

*The free built in VPN is not yet available, but since as we already mentioned our user's safety is of top priority to us, we promise to release this feature asap. It's nearly ready.

*The source code for iOS is published under full GPL V3 license
