Editors' review

The free Redbox app lets you browse and rent Redbox movies and games on DVD and Blu-ray from your Android phone or tablet. It syncs seamlessly with your Redbox account, so your discs will be ready to pick up from a nearby Redbox, just like they are when you reserve them from your home PC. With the Redbox app, you can reserve a movie when the idea strikes (or when you remember it), no matter where you are.

Pros

Reserve it now: Did you suddenly remember promising to rent a video? It's not too late, thanks to the Redbox app.

Better interface: The Redbox app loads much faster and browses more smoothly on our Android phone than when accessing Redbox's Web site on our phone's browser, and Android-specific features like the Navigation Tray make it much more convenient, too.

More movies: DVDs and Blu-ray discs retain some advantages, especially for rentals. More (and often newer) movies are available to rent on disc.

Cons

Pick up & drop off: Redbox streamlined video rentals by reducing the brick-and-mortar video store to a vending machine, but it still involves picking up and returning a physical disc.

Not streaming: We're not saying the Redbox app should stream or play movies on your phone, but it doesn't.

Bottom Line

While streaming is clearly the wave of the future, DVD video rentals won't be going away until streaming is more widespread. The Redbox app makes it easier to browse and reserve movies and games.
