Redbox Instant (iOS)

The Good Redbox Instant is great for managing your rentals, bookmarking movies you want to watch, and as long as you can find one, it's great for watching a movie instantly.

The Bad The Redbox Instant catalog is not nearly as large as Netflix's, which is already small compared with its rental catalog.

The Bottom Line The Redbox app is useful for renting movies and managing your account, but for streaming movies, Netflix has a bigger catalog.
