MovieBox and SNES4iOS Finally Working on iOS 8.1

By | May 12, 2015

Let’s face it, when we download an app from app store we are expecting it to work right out of the box without having to apply many changes to it at all. So there was a lot of disappointment when MovieBox, a popular application that allows you to stream movies stopped working in iOS 8 without much warning.

Apple had patched the date and time mechanism that would allow for the installation of third party applications outside of the App Store with iOS 8.1. Thankfully now many of our favorite applications such as MovieBox and SNES4iOS are now working as long as the 8.1 update has been applied. These are working on the iPhone 6, the iPad Air, and the Mini, as well as all other devices on this platform.


There had been initial reports that claimed that there had been a shutdown on 8.1 because of there being a problem with the date time issue. It also affected many of our other favorite applications out there such as GBA4iOS, SNES4iOS and many other applications from being able to function at all.

All of these applications by some miracle, we are not sure, are working again. However this fix does not require the regular change the date and month trick. It just works now.

MovieBox can be downloaded now from the popular and it will work, all you have to do is click on the icon and you can install it. This is a great application which will allow you to download the movies and television shows that you want to see and you can then determine the speed you want to see them in so that you will be able to see them. This is a free application that is not from the app store in any way, shape, or form. That is pretty amazing.

In addition to MovieBox you will be happy to know that SNES4iOS is also working and you will not have to worry about making any changes to the date time configuration. Glitches do happen when it comes to iOS and other downloads. However, for those of us who are not as technically sound it is very important to make sure that we are able to take advantage of all of the options which are out there for us and know how we can fix these minor issues.

When developers are coding, they can have no way to know at the iOS level how certain applications are going to be effected by the changes they are making in iOS as each application is completely different. However, one thing that is very important is for us to realize that while we may not be able to predict every single change, we can beta taste and state what works and does not. We will keep you plugged in and will update you as we learn of exciting changes that are happening with your favorite applications.
