Nearly perfect


This app is great. It has tons of popular movies that I've wanted to see, but never quite got around to seeing, and even some I haven't heard of that are now on my list of favorites. Unlike many free apps, crackle doesn't have excessive commercials, which I love. I'm not going to sugar-coat anything, so I have to say this app is also very testing at times.
Crackle tends to work well about 70% of the time, but the times that it doesn't will drive you mad. The videos (when the app works as intended) run incredibly smoothly; no buffering, no cut-outs, seamlessly transitioning back to your videos after the short and rare advertisements. But like Dr. Jackal and Mr. Hyde, things sometimes turn to a nasty side. When this app decides its not going to work, it's impossible to work with and will upset even the most patient and easygoing person. Videos begin to cut out often (typically the video, but sometimes the audio will also. It is also rather often that they both cut out and will trick you into thinking the video is buffering.) but astoundingly, ads will play as if there was nothing wrong with agrivating clarity.
Despite all of the kinks, this app is not something you will regret having. When it works, enjoy it. When it doesn't, try again later and hope for the best.

What is going on with this App?!


I've had this app for quite some time and aside from the annoyance of constant commercials. The movie selection was actually quite good, the shows are also pretty good including anime. So why 1 star? In recent months the app has degraded at a rapid speed. It changed right after they you changed the interface of the app. Which was actually pretty good but then the app started to crash. Yesterday I had to start a whole new account 'cause it wouldn't let me enter under my old one and even afterwards I kept getting "We're sorry unavailable in your area"????? Since when? I also get "This information is currently unavailable". It is quite frustrating when you want to see something and the app is constantly crashing. You should be more considerate of your customers, at least have sent them an email letting them know your aware of the problem and are working on a solution. Also try to minimize on the commercials I can see in the beginning of a show or movie but you've got it where it will play about 3 to 4 times during the course of a movie and it's the same commercial. That's just ridiculous. I suggest fewer commercials, maybe give a paid option to remove ads, fix the stability issues. I noticed this app use to pop up in my "Location Services" and after it started crashing no longer appeared. Hopefully this information will be useful in the update of this app.

Good App


I agree with #17, the app is free people. True you have the advertising, but for having a app that you can watch tv shows and movies on your phone, and go just about anywhere in the country, and again I point out it is FREE. True they have a few problems, give them a break. Think about all the different wireless products out there, and with the constant upgrades that the various companies are constantly throwing at us (and I for one am thankful that they are, it means they are improving their products) the developers are having a hard time trying to make the app compatible with all the constant upgrades and new products coming out. You have problems or issues, let the developers know, most developers are seriously trying to make their apps better. Did I mention that the app is FREE. Do like I do, I take all the best apps the market has, some I pay for, most are free, I have a very wide variety that offers me a lot of enjoyable entertainment. Thanks to a lot of intelligent developers ( wish I was as smart) I'm able to go anywhere with loads of entertainment. At home or on the go, it's great. Thanks Developers!!!!!
