We easily download movies from the internet to our android devices to enable us watch it without any stress when we have no schedule. But some of the movies and TV shows we preferred to watch may or may not come with subtitles. Some are filmed in foreign languages we tend not to understand and thus unable to know what actually the movie is all about. Majority of the people all over the world has been familiar with the universal language which is English and we expect every TV shows to be subtitled in English but sometimes it seems they forget to add subtitles to those movies and we find it difficult to get along with the movie since we do not understand what actually the sequence of the movie is.
