What the...?

Sean Current

OK, so far my experience with the crackle app has been beyond frustrating. First of all, I will begin watching an episode of the series but I’m unable to turn off close captions because the word “learn more“ is superimposed over the gearbox icon in the lower right of my screen. This means that I have to close out of the app and restart, sometimes several times before I can finally access the settings to turn off close captions. Contrary to what I read on the web, close captions in the off position is not the default setting. This glitch is almost bearable, however what is not bearable is sometimes, but mostly not, as I complete an episode the next episode does not automatically start. Most often, I find I have to go back all the way to the series lineup and then, often the next two episodes do not even show up in the timeline. I am now stuck in unable to continue series because I can’t find the next episodes. It is unbelievable that this app is out published in this state. I cannot tell you how many times I have completely deleted this app from my iPad and then reinstalled, hoping that a new installation would provide better results, but to no avail. I don’t know how I’m going to finish the series that I’m watching I’m only in the first season and there are three seasons!! God help me!

We sincerely apologize for this experience.

Good stuff, bad execution.


The app was working fine previously. Reasonable selection, some great original content, an autoplay function that worked, but then the latest "update" came out. Now the app no longer autoplays, remembers where I left off (and I AM signed in to my account!) and the season episode list has the annoying tendency to not display the next episode up to watch. It is skipped, showing the episode AFTER the next one you need to watch (finish ep 6, ready for ep 7, but no 7 listed. Only ep 6 then ep8, no 7). In order to get the full list again, I need to kill the app, physically unplug and reboot my chromecast, because it keeps the Crackle app loaded and that seems to prevent the episode list from loading properly, wait for chromecast to reboot, then fire up the app again. And SOMETIMES that works. No good when an "update" introduces more bugs than it is supposed to fix. I like Crackle, but I just want it to work as well as it did before this current version. And having the same half dozen ads playing repeatedly over a week straight gets pretty old pretty fast. Just saying.

Too many glitches


There are a few things that seriously need to be taken care of in this program. First of all ads are fine however if there is any sort of trouble with loading or in between episodes ads will go on until I exit the app and restart the application. On top of that your place in a series isn’t saved, or it’s the wrong episode almost every time. According to crackle I’ve been on season 2 since after I watched the first episode of season one in a series. I then have to scroll back through the episodes and try and guess which episode I left off on, then more ads as a have to click and re-exit each episode. Also the organization is crazy there is no way to get to a full series without searching over and over. You can’t just go back to where you were without going into an episode and then going through information to get to the full series to see the episodes available. If there weren’t a few things I wanted to watch I wouldn’t use this app, it’s almost not worth it.
