Looking for new movie releases can be a real pain. If you currently spend hours looking for movies online, you aren’t alone. Thankfully, the CouchPotato app has been invented, and this app allows you to go about your business while leaving your computer to search for and download movies for you. That’s right, this is a fully automated app that will make finding movies a lot easier.

So, how does CouchPotato work? All you really have to do is download the CouchPotato app, set it up, and go on your way. The movies that you want to watch will be downloaded to your computer whenever they are released. Sound too good to be true? Well, there’s one slightly hitch, CouchPotato comes with a small monthly user fee ($7.95 monthly). But, before you turn to the next article, this fee is a small price to pay for all of the things that CouchPotato can do.

Using CouchPotato

Once downloaded, you can configure CouchPotato to find the movies you are interested in. You can tell the app how often it should search for new movies and what types of movies you want to download. You can even enter the name of a movie into the search bar in order to ensure that the app won’t download anything you aren’t interested in.

CouchPotato works with Usenet, so you’ll have to set up Usenet in order to use this app. Thankfully, Usenet doesn’t take too long to set up. Once this is all ready to go, you can use your CouchPotato app to your heart’s content. Really, this app is as simple as it gets, but it will save you lots of time and effort.

Some Possible Complications

Some users have reported problems with CouchPotato. Mainly, the biggest problem is that CouchPotato likes to reorganize current movie library. By reorganizing, I mean renaming movies. Then again, this problem has only been reported by a few users, so it may not be an issue for you when you use the app.

Drawbacks aside (and all apps come with drawbacks), CouchPotato is a cool app. In addition, it’s an app that will help you find the movies you want without spending lots of time looking for the right titles. If a title becomes available while you’re away, CouchPotato will download that movie right away, and it will be waiting for you when you return.
Innovative, user-friendly, and helpful – that’s just the way that apps should be.

Getting Started

If CouchPotato sounds like a great app to you, go ahead and visit the CouchPotato website. On the site, you’ll find detailed instructions that will lead you directly to a download. You don’t have to install this app, so that makes the download process even less time consuming.

This reviewer loves it when apps appear that makes sense and are easy to use. Sure, you’ll have to pay a monthly fee to use this app, but that low fee might be worth it if you find yourself wasting hours looking for movies to download. After all, your time is worth something, right?
