Hello, good morning/night.

Since the last two month my Popcorn Time app has been showing some issues everytime I try to download one or more movies. The app puts my tablet slow, connect and disconnect it from wifi, blocks and unblocks it, and sometimes don't let me use the tablet at all; and I'm forced to restart the tablet everytime I try to download a movie (or more).

Other trouble is that I start downloading a movie and I leave it for seven or even eight hours, and when I go to check, the movie never downloads, or downloads with the wrong subtitles.

I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab A6 with Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop). The app month ago used to work perfectly, when the problem begun I uninstalled the app and installed it again, and nothing, all the problems persisted.

I really love this app and I would really love to get a new Popcorn Time update with all this bugs fixed. Thank you for taking your time and reading this, please fix this soon :? .

kinda stranger things... Maybe you have installed/updated some other app(s) also that are `fighting` for the system resources and slowing down your tablet?
Maybe unstable internet connection doesn't allow to download file completely.
For example, once WiFi signal lost and than back again - video trying to continue downloading and fails...
Specify the app version you are using?

Yes, it's very weird and everything was okay until I uninstalled the app and installed it again the day that subtitles stopped working:


After that day the app never worked the same. I don't know why :| . The version I'm using is Android Beta 3.2.0, and usually my internet connection is stable.

I wouldn't know if it's another app(s) because that's the only movie app I'm having trouble with. Netflix it's working fine, and no other app(s) connects and disconnects the . slow down my tablet while I'm downloading. What's wrong with me :oops: :oops: :oops: :( !!?
