Cartoon HD is a video streaming app for mobile devices. Currently, the app can only be installed on devices running the Android operating system and certain Apple devices. The app can also be installed on devices featuring proprietary operating systems that are based on Android or include the Android runtime. These include some of Amazon’s Kindle e-readers and Blackberry devices running Blackberry OS version 10.2 or higher.
Download Cartoon HD Apk-
Cartoon HD was formerly available as an app on both Google Play and Apple’s AppStore. However, as of now, the app has been removed from both of these app markets. The app can, however, be manually installed on both iOS and Android. Cartoon HD can currently be accessed on all platforms from here.
The app is free to install and features a large selection of movies and tv shows. Animated series and cartoons are especially plentiful in Cartoon HD’s catalog. This will be a comprehensive Cartoon HD App review. As of June 2016, the latest version of the app is 3.0.0, which will be used in this review.
Cartoon HD App Installation
- As noted above, Cartoon HD is no longer available on any app stores. Instead, the app has to be downloaded from CartoonHD’s website and manually installed on the Android device.
Blackberry and Kindle users will have to follow a similar method.
- Apple users have two options for installing Cartoon HD. Jailbroken iOS devices can install Cartoon HD from the dtathemes repository using Cydia. The app can also be installed manually on non-jailbroken devices; however manual installation is not supported on some versions of iOS.
On most devices, installation is quick and you can have the app up and run in around a minute or two, from start to finish.
Cartoon HD- User Interface and Navigation
A black splash screen with a logo is displayed upon launching Cartoon HD and the app boots up in a couple seconds. The interface is simple and minimalist. Available titles are displayed in a grid format and you choose titles by touching the corresponding box art.
Users have the option to sort the available titles by name, year of release, new releases, popular titles and so on. Users can also browse titles by genre, of which there are 23. Swiping right from the left side of the app brings you the option to switch between movies, TV shows, and collections.
Selecting a movie brings up an ‘info’ tab which displays information on the title including the year of release, genre, and IMDb rating along with a summary. The movie or TV show can be viewed by tapping the ‘video’ tab and clicking the title. At this point, you select what quality of video you want to view depending on the speed of your connection. Most videos are available in 360p, 480p or 720p; although the available quality varies from video to video. You can choose to download the video or play it in the app.
- If you have a third party video player installed on your device, you can use it to view videos from Cartoon HD by selecting the ‘Custom’ option while playing the video.
- The app is fluid and responsive and navigating through the various menus and options was a breeze on the test device used for this Cartoon HD app review.
However, advertisements are quite prevalent throughout the app. An ad banner is present at all times at the bottom of the app, and more pop up periodically as you play videos or browse through the app’s selection. These ads are full screen but can be closed by touching the ‘X’ button.
A wide variety of movies and tv shows are available on Cartoon HD. The catalog is not particularly impressive compared to commercial mobile streaming services like Netflix. However it is still reasonably varied, and there is sure to be content to suit every taste.
Of particular interest is the ‘Collections’ section of the app, which can be accessed by swiping right from the left side of the app. Collections are compilations of movie sorted by topic, such as 3D movies, anime or Pixar. It is a useful feature that helps you find movies similar to the ones you like.
True to its name, Cartoon HD features a large selection of animated TV series, movies, and cartoons.
Cartoon HD is an excellent video streaming app when you consider that it is available for free. If you think you can look past the sheer amount of ads, it is highly recommended that you check it out.
