Used to be GOOD, now Bad....
I don't know if it's the update or what but just a few weeks ago it was a cool app, had decent amount of movies, and rare good movies you didn't see anywhere else. NOW...When I go to type in a movie or tv show in the search option, nothing shows up, even though it's apparent they have it in their menus. There are now only about 40 movies and tv shows each which is very sad. It used to not be like this. I see a lot of people uninstalling in the near future. If it doesn't improve in the next few weeks, I'm uninstalling and sticking to Netflix.
Sony bought Crackle
And like everything else they touch they have made it worse.
While they fixed the repetitive crashes the overall design is sub-par. The mini-player? Useless, annoying, and intrusive. Want to read the show description? If you decide not to watch it and return to the listings you lose your place and go back to the top of the the listings. Want to go back to catch something you missed? If you do it right after a commercial you'll be watching the commercials again.
I like to watch a movie when I go to bed, but when the movie ends, and I am asleep, it picks another movie to play. Something insidious like Insidious. Or an action movie with lots of loud crashes, shouting, gunshots, and explosions. <snark>Gee thank you Sony, I'm sleeping SO much better now.</snark> Why can't I just watch one movie and then the player stops?
I'm going back to Netflix, the price of watching Crackle is just too high.
The update has broken the app
This used to work Great before the most recent updates. I used to be able to use this app with the voiceover screen reader on my iPhone, but now I am unable to do so. Also, my favorite shows seem to have been removed, including married with children. Either that, or the search feature has been broken as well when I did finally managed to get to that particular feature. There is possibly more bugs and issues that have came with this update that I'm not aware of. Beware when taking the plunge and updating this app.
