There seems a lot improvement in overall features and performance of the showbox. The latest version is stable where most of the bugs and issues are fixed. If you already have the app installed and got some errors on daily basis, I suggest to download the more recent version and install it on your device.
It is however good to know that some older Android OS version like android Jelly Bean and Kitkat (or version 4.0 and 4.4) supports the older version of show box. So if you get a compatibility error, restore or downgrade to previous version of the showbox movie app.
