Some applications designed for Macs do what’s promised, but some only pretend to deliver useful features.

Popularity of the Popcorn Time streaming media service is easy to explain: it is free to use, and the customers can enjoy a huge catalogue of movies and TV shows that would otherwise be blocked from regular access on legal resources.
