Cartoon HD closes down


Cartoon HD download has been removed from Apple’s App Store and Google’s Play Store, leaving users without a consistent source for streaming free television series and movies.

Cartoon HD and the apps' creator GappCenter’s page were taken down this week after the app developer attempting to create a clone, according to reports.

GappCenter told followers via Twitter that Cartoon HD “is closed.”

The company was forced to shut down the app permanently as they were reportedly receiving legal threats from intellectual property owners.

Other piracy-related websites that have recently closed down include Torrentz.eu, FileCrop, Cricfree, and Delishows.

Rumours are circulating online that users can get Cartoon HD to start working again if they change the system date of their device to 2 June.
