Pulsar Kodi Addon Review
Pulsar takes a rather simple approach to its layout. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but it does limit the user experience a bit. You’ll be greeted with a rather simple, short menu offering 4 options: Movies, TV Shows, Search and Paste URL. The last option, Paste URL, allows you to paste the URL from a torrent directly. Pulsar will download the file and allow you to view the movie or TV show within seconds.
Under Movies, you’ll find Search, Most Popular, Top Rated, Most Voted and IMDB Top 250. The IMDB Top 250 is a good option if you’re looking to catch up on any of the movies you’ve missed out on that get the most talked about.
Under TV Shows, you’re fairly limited in your options. Search and Most Popular are your only options here.
Is Pulsar worth your time? Maybe. It is, and remains, rather popular as a torrenting addon. However, it’s been somewhat surpassed by its fork, Quasar. This is because Pulsar has some significant stability issues. The addon is known to crash rather frequently, not load streams and simply not start at all. Our suggestion would be to download and try it out, but if you find it not working, switch over to the Quasar fork.
