Cartoon HD app down, fix offered

There are always certain mobile applications that grab a lot of the headlines for one reason or another, and that can certainly be said about the Cartoon HD app, but there is news that the app is now down and not working although a possible fix is being offered by users.

The Cartoon HD app made the headlines for being taken down from the various app stores, but there was still a way for users to access the Cartoon HD application. Today though numerous users are reporting that the Cartoon HD app has stopped working completely.

Some of our readers though are suggesting that users change the date on their device to two days ago to June 2nd, and it will start working again. Others have said that this doesn’t work and if this is the case an alternative may be needed, but it seems changing the date only works on iOS and not Android.

Have you had issues with the Cartoon HD app and has this fix worked for you?

    • Letitdie

  • Alissa

    I’m in Australia and have just tried changing the date to 2 June, 1 June, wouldn’t work.. Now I’ve used 23 May and it works. Very sneaky!!

  • Mark Parsons

    Changing it to 2nd June only brings back favourites. If you change it to a month ago it brings all content back.

  • Michelle

    I’ve changed the date and it’s working now, except for a few movies (my little ones favourites) anyone else got that problem?

    • Rowan


  • Morag

    What do you mean, change the date? How? Tia

  • DarkDestiny

    How about you clowns pay for the media and stop stealing media content people poured their lives into. Scum.

    • Ned Stark


    • Tyler64

      Poured their life. Hahahahahahaha, you silly prick. They use their ‘acting’ skills and say some words from a script they have to memorise, oooya, then they get paid millions for it. So watch your lip and next time don’t bloody say anything if its going to be idiotic.

  • Dave

    I watch Game of Thrones…I pay for the service, but prefer to watch it without adverts and whilst on the move or at work. I am not stealing for what I have already paid for and certainly not Scum.

    • Tyler64

      Scum? How are you scum anyway even if you don’t pay for it? People are greedy, that’s the only reason it’s been took down. The companies that make and distribute the film won’t let anyone watch them without paying for the DVD or going to see it at the cinema. Their companies are worth billions and billions, I’m positive they aren’t going to go bankrupt anytime soon. Buying all the DVDs and going to the cinema every week to see the new ‘awsome’ looking film, costs quite a lot and it starts to add up. So I’m sorry sir, but you aren’t scum if you don’t wanna waste £10 on going to sit in a room for 2 hours, when you can watch it it a at home with your family where the experience us much better. People are greedy, everyone on this planet is greedy they want more and more, and that sir, will be the end of our pathetic race. So bye, rant over! SS
