Incompatible with iOS 11? 1/5
By David Lowe
Just downloaded and set up iOS 11 on my new iPad Pro, and the Crackle app that worked fine on iOS 10 does not work on iOS 11.
The app opens, but when I open a video and play, it plays for one second and then stops. Can app developers please confirm? Anyone else having this issue?
Deleted app within 24 hours. 1/5
I've never down loaded an app that was so frustrating I deleted it within a day of downloading it, until this. I heard something's about crackle so I loaded it on my Roku and so far so good. But the iPad app is crap. Once you start a show you can't get rid of it. Too many bugs.
iOS 11 Fail 1/5
This app no longer plays back videos on iOS 11.
Awesome sauce 5/5
English anime and two long commercials 2/5
By Big GD
I don't watch TV because of commercials however I know it's better than buying TV shows or movies whoever they keep increasing the time of these commercials. At first they were 30 seconds then it went up to 1 minute than a minute and 30 seconds then it wouldn't up 2 minutes now it's at 2 minutes and 30 seconds. That is ridiculous. Second thing would like to complain about is the anime. What is the flipping Point of putting anime on here if most of them are in Japanese. It's no fun to read subtitles.
I really hope yall can at least fix both of these.
Not a good search for kids movies 1/5
I tried to watch Ms Perigerines home for peculiar children and nothing popped up! I tried other kids movies and nothing popped up! Horrible waste of time if you want to spend time with your kids on the go!👎👎👎👎
Obsurd ads! 1/5
By Rick Lobato
How about a paid version!?!?
It's good and all but you really need to add more popular movies, you should add: Clueless, and Mean Girls.
no good movies 1/5
i bought this because i wanted a free service where i could watch a wider selection of movies than netflix. boy was i wrong. ive never heard of any of these movies except for a few and the few i know are notorious for being horrible movies (battlefield earth, joe dirt, etc). i guess the only good movies i could find were maybe bottle rocket and night of the living dead, but thats literally it. if you buy this expecting a good movie service, youll be highly disappointed. terrible app.
Get it together 1/5
If you're looking for an app created by people who think like a business, and are completely out of touch with what the consumer wants, this is it. Never have I had such struggle with an app than with Crackle, across all platforms. Instead of pumping money into commercials, and creating subpar programming, maybe you should actually create a platform that functions on a basic level, as opposed to failing on every single advanced level. Get it together
Totally not even worth being free 1/5
By Money wasted 2
Too much buffering and freezing why not charge so you can pay some better developers
It doesn't have rick and morty ....
Too many comercial breaks 2/5
I don't mind commercials on a free app. However, 6 commercials every 7 or 8 minutes during a movie is excessive. Most of them were the same commercials over and over and over again. After 45 minutes I gave up and rented the movie for $2 on another app.
First time watching... 2/5
I usually watch on Netflix, Amazon and Hulu, but none had the show I was searching for. I am frustrated because Sony's name is behind Crackle but there are so many glitches. I am viewing on an iPad Pro, with the updated Crackle. My wifi is at highest Mbps.
Issues are: subtitles won't always go on when I turn them on, ads freeze the show at times, subtitles keep playing for the next screen but ads are playing, occasionally everything freezes and have to shut app off and start again, app crashes OFTEN.
I would like an ad free option, I am not accustomed to watching anything with ads and this is a bit painful (especially since I am watching a season at a time and I see the same ad about 20+ times). I am close to going down to my video store and renting the season.
Thank you for hearing my complaints. On the bright side it is nice to find shows I couldn't find anywhere else. However, once I am done with this tv series I won't be using Crackle again until MAJOR improvements.
Only 4 commercials? 1/5
Wow, with only 4 commercials to show they sure get old after the 20th time during a movie
App < Content 2/5
This app is completely outdated and is in dire need of an upgrade. IT DOES NOT auto play the next episode of the series that you are currently watching. However it will play an entirely new show that you have not seen; much like russian roulette. DO NOT rely on the app to remember where you left off on a show (had to drop three shows because I am too lazy to figure out where I left off at.) The only reason I gave it an extra star is due to its content. IT DOES OFFER great content and new(ish) faces which is a breath of fresh air (tired of seeing the same A-list Hollywood faces over and over again.) They're definitely moving in the right direction just need to update their app and make the UI easier to use.
Movies that are shown online and say watch now on Crackle App download for free aren't actually on the app and that disappoints me.
By brooke fuller
This app was amazing it was not laggy and unlike other movie apps this has good quality movies and more of a variety of movies I recommend this app to any one
By Ari Vee 3619373927294
Honestly only downloading this to watch party boat but I'm hoping it will come in handy for other things too❤️
Great app! 5/5
This is a great app to watch movies and tv shows the best app I have found so far
It's free so..... 3/5
Seems to work ok. Not much content, but it's free so you can't really complain. I'll use it on occasion.
It crashes a lot usually towards the end of the movie
Much better 5/5
By Joe Boater
I like what Crackle has to offer for movies. Furthermore they tamed the ads frequency it is comparable to any other commercial TV
No more chromecast? 3/5
Dang I liked this app but now I can't chrome cast well so long crackle
Used to love it 2/5
Used to love it but they now show commercials every like 5 minutes... and every session of commercials is 1:30 long, idk maybe I'll download again when they get rid of so many redundant commercials
Unusable subtitle function after ads freeze film 1/5
By Zac León
I need subtitles to understand the films due to hearing loss. However, when I turn on the subtitles and watch the film, I tend to always get stuck at the last frame of the movie prior to the ad interruption. The ad doesn't play, but the countdown of the ad shows and works in the bottom left. But the screen freezes on the last frame of the movie as it is going into ad mode. I reset the iPhone and I reset the app, I cleared my cache and RAM and all, still can't get the subtitles to resume working again after these little freezes. The movie will resume playing but the subtitles lose their track and won't come back on after the ad frame freeze. It's sad because they have great movies but what use are the movies or the app if I can't even get the subtitles to stay functional?
Great Free Streaming Service! 5/5
Great free streaming service! Has original series and some old series too! People complain the movies are to old. HELLO? It is a "FREE" streaming service! If you don't want to pay anything and you don't have cable, I recommend this app.
By GoK 1234
I watched one movie and I'm uninstalling this app already. It's so awful having 30 commercial breaks, it took 3 hours to watch a 2 hour movie because of soooo many breaks!
Piece of crap. Don't waste your time 1/5
Content is old. App is not intuitive. Whomever worked on this should really look for a job in real estate or anything that has nothing to do with digital. Don't wast minutes of your life in downloading, getting disappointed and uninstalling
Absurd commercial interruptions 1/5
By Commercially Frustrated
Same commercials over and over and over, etc., etc.., etc., ... ... ... and then they play them again, and again, and again. Sometimes only 10 seconds of program is sandwiched by a half dozen commercials on each end. To give you an idea how absurd it can be, I tuned into Seinfeld and after an introductory commercial, the opening monologue was interrupted twice by commercials and the monologue is only about 30 seconds long!
Airplay to Apple TV not working 2/5
Good selection of old shows (supported by Ads). The major reason I'm giving this two stars is because it won't Air Play to my Apple TV. I can hear the audio but it just shows me the Crackle logo; no picture. Please fix up and I'll up my rating.
It okay 3/5
By Queen of the mountains
It a play app has some old shows I love. But they need work on improving them adding better movies. Also changing up different episodes instead of watching the same episodes three weeks in a row.
Commercials kill it 1/5
I have to agree that the commercials kill this app. They are absolutely excessive, I do not mind some but there is no balance. If the advertising agencies think that flooding me with commercials every five minutes will get me buy their product it won't, in fact it turns me off. You take a perfectly good app and destroy it. Wake up folks! Look elsewhere for this is ridiculous.
Worst collection 1/5
Worst collect of movies..!!
I have an Apple iPhone 6 I'm using a lightning adapter to HD cable to HDTV. The app allows sound to the cast without a problem, but it will not allow me to watch videos on my TV. I know it's the app because every other app i use works just fine.
Old movies are good but there needs to be more new movies as well
By T swehg❤
Can you tone down the ads? I've been getting two minute long ads every five minutes nonstop.
Good app but needs a wider range of shows 3/5
If your looking for a wide range of shows to watch I would not recommend this app.
By Potato.whale on Instagram!
Used to be good. I would always watch Seinfeld on it at night but now that's become too annoying because of the ads. I get two 3-minute-long ads back to back, and they're all the same sponsors. Deleting this for good now.
Great app and quality! 5/5
Don't know what the other reviews are talking about! I have been using them for a while now and it works great! Have great content and movies are great!
Thank you for a great app!
Needs more shows and movies!!!!!! 1/5
This app only has stuff nobody wants to see if you search up anything that is popular it is not there
Misleading Reviews 5/5
I downloaded this app, despite all the awful reviews, and I sure am glad that I did! Idk what all those reviewers were complaining about. The commercials are shorter than network television and seem diverse. I have never seen the same one more than once during a break. It saves where I am during the episodes and hasn't frozen or crashed once. Those people are crazy, this app is fantastic to me. I love having another option when I am streaming and it's FREE!
Art of More 5/5
Acting, storyline, character development, production values, action, art biz realism--all is superb! Commercial breaks are annoying and repetitive but infrequent.
Ads. Ads. Ads. Ads. Ads. Ads. 1/5
By Linkedin screwed up
Hey crackle? Why don't you give us some more ads, ads, ads, and more ads.
Who in their right mind would try to use this app with all this ads. Ads. Ads. Ads. Ads
Hasn't worked in over 6months 1/5
I've had this app for years but have not been able to get it to function for over 6 months.
I've even uninstalled /reinstalled at their request and still the shows don't play to end.
Why watch 1/4 of something?
I'm finally deleting it for good.
Decent content, garbage UI 1/5
There's a few shows I actually enjoy on Crackle (Comedians in Cars, The Critic) but the app itself is such a dumpster fire of clunky interfaces, bad search, picking an episode while one is playing, and just plain ugly.
Crackle is a pain to use on every platform (Roku and PS4 playing ads while selecting a show ruins it). I'm happy that Comedians in Cars is going to Netflix.
Same ad 3 times in a row during one break 1/5
I'm not opposed to watching ads on a free service, and I realize that most streaming services show the same ads every commercial break but Crackle takes the cake. You see the same ad for one of their lame original tv shows at least 2 times in a row every break. I just saw that "Startup" ad 3 times in a row and had to stop using the app at that point. I was really excited to watch some Newsradio episodes but couldn't make it past episode 6 because of the ads. What good does showing me the same ad back to back do? I feel like they are throwing money away by not diversifying their ads better.
Movies aren't available 1/5
The website directed me to download the app to watch the movie I wanted, but when I downloaded the app the movie wasn't available to watch. Deceptive!
More commercials than anything!!!! 2/5
By Barbershop Owner
Just mute the ads when they pop up save yourself the headache.
