mobdro download

Mobdro has two versions: Freemium and Premium. Freemium is completely free, the Premium version has extra features, like capturing streams and ChromeCast support, and is free of ads.


Mobdro Freemium is what we have been using for long, but you have to watch free advertisements in a free version of Mobdro and lots of people are complaining about the annoying ads while using the Mobdro Freemium version and the problem is, the official Mobdro Premium version is not available yet.

I'm glad to let you know that there is one Mobdro Freemium Official version which is working like premium version, Mobdro Version 2.0.48. This version will save you from free advertisements on live streaming apps. It can set you to watch free movies and TV shows without paying anything at all.


Someone downloaded the Mobdro V2.0.48 through the Mobdro official website, when testing the app, he noticed the app is completely free of ads. It seems the company forgot to insert the ads inside the app during the updating, because another version, which is Mobdro Version 2.0.52 was just released and that came with ads.

Mobdro V2.0.48 is no more available for downloading on the Mobdro official website, but I have the APK version of it for you guys to download and feel the premium features of Mobdro without paying a dime.

Goodbye To Windows Phone... Microsoft Confirms That Windows Phone Is Dead

Goodbye To Windows Phone... Microsoft Confirms That Windows Phone Is Dead

The era of Windows phone is gradually coming to an end, very bad news for windows phone users. Microsoft's VP Joe Belfiore took to his twitter handle, saying that "we know that Windows 10 Mobile is also slowly but steadily heading to the product graveyard of Microsoft."

However, it doesn't mean that your windows device will cease operating, Microsoft VP, responsible for the mobile OS said that Microsoft will keep supporting the platform with bug fixes, but no new features or hardware will be introduced.

windows 10 image

REASON FOR THE DECISION
Microsoft V.P Joe Belfiore explains why He says that developers never really backed the platform and Microsoft could not find partners to work with. Along with the low number of users, (it seems most Windows users ported to Android and iOS platform).

Microsoft windows phone

I think this is one of the reason why Microsoft decided to open up its Edge browser exclusive to Windows alone to other platform (Android and iOS). Indeed this is really bad news for windows phone lovers.
