Download the latest Cartoon HD App Here! | Android / iOS Guide

The Cartoon HD app is back baby!

CartoonHD was the original free movie & tv streaming app that inspired all of todays most popular streaming apps, like Showbox, Playbox and Movie HD.  After the developers website went down and the app stopped working a few years ago,  we all thought that was the end of the road for our beloved streaming app.  I just recently discovered that the streaming app that started it all, is back online and working better than ever. The following guide will help you get it installed and running on nearly any device!

Happy Streaming Everyone!


Installing The Cartoon HD App for Android

1.) Download the latest Cartoon HD apk.

Browse to: Settings -> Security & check the box next to “Unknown sources”.

Enable Unknown Sources on Android device.

3.) Open the .apk file you downloaded in step #2 and click on Install.

Frequently Asked Questions


How do I set this up on my PC / Mac?

There is no native installer for these apps on either the Mac or Windows PC, but there is a pretty clever work around that will let you enjoy all of your favorite apps (not just Cartoon HD!) on your desktop computer. First, we will install an Android operating system emulator and then install the app in the virtual Android OS environment. While there are a number of different emulators out there for both Windows and Macs, I’ve chosen the Andy OS software for its ease of use and it’s compatibility with both systems.

  1. Grab the latest version of the Andy OS software.
  2. Andy OS will automatically boot you into your virtualized Android operating system when the install completes.

  3. If you haven’t already, download the v3.00 of the Cartoon HD apk for pc HERE.
  4. Right-click on the .apk file and open with Andy OS to begin installing the app.
  5. Done! You should now be able to find the app in your virtual Android environment.

Unfortunately the Cartoon HD app is not available in the Vshare market place app currently.

I’m getting an error or the Cartoon HD app is crashing….

Just like most apps, many error codes and crashing issues can be addressed by updating to the latest and greatest version of the app. If you’ve already tried updating the app and it hasn’t resolved your issue, consider rebooting your device or un-installing and re-installing the app from scratch. In my experience, either one of the above steps will resolve your issue or the app is down for everybody until the developers can resolve whatever server or device compatibility issues that are present.

Fortunately, there are a ton of other great free Streaming apps  out there!
