Horrible coding 1/5
By angry crackle user
This app is horrible, it’s ridiculous that you have to keep closing out the app and restarting to even click an option sometimes. A lot of things on the site do not work, and it states that bugs and stuff were fixed but if you guys fixed anything.... you shouldnt be advertising it until the problem is 100% solved.
Astoundingly Buggy App 1/5
Terrible. Useless. But, hey-it looks great!
I watch one show and it never continues where I leave off and then when I search for that episode, it is not even there. I have struggled for a week to watch 5 episodes and still haven’t completed.
Not worth the trouble 1/5
Constant crashes. Too bad, because it used to be a great app.
What’s happening here? 2/5
So, I just downloaded the app so I could write this review and get some info. Why does it pause for 5 seconds or more every 30 seconds or so. I’m watching on a Visio TV. Other apps play fine. Is there a setting or something I’m missing? Please help!!
I just tried to send a note to the developers through app support and the form would not submit. There are plenty of other apps that work great! Thanks Crackle!
Commercials til you delete the APP! 1/5
The movies are all old but a decent selection. Hardees commercials and lavar narcissistic ball and sprint. If you watch on a computer which I will not, there were NO commercials. I believe that was an act of GOD 👋 Everybody does not watch movies right in front of them. I’ll stick to what I’m used to and it is not commercials which is why I removed cable. Thanks for wasting the people’s time.
I have no problems with ads....but repeating ads is just the worst. PLEASE fix it so I don't get the same old ads over and over again...
What happened??!!! 1/5
This app on my iphone 6 is no longer working properly with crashes or failure to even start a video.... long time daily user... hope it gets fixed!
Too many glitches 2/5
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.
APP IS BROKEN 1/5
Was working perfectly...till the Feb 5 update. And the Feb 12 update DIDN'T FIX IT. Now the app crashes and closes when I try to watch anything & everything! So a previously great app is now garbage. How do I revert back to the version before Feb 5??? And why can't you at least put out an update that FIXES IT.
What the...? 1/5
By 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!
Revert to the old version while optimizing code 1/5
Keeps crashing on my iPad 2. The new layout is nice but seems to need a lot of computational power. The code needs to be optimized. It crashes as soon as I click to watch a movie or scroll deep into a category.
By Irael Melendez
Keeps freezing and closing. Very annoying
Good app 3/5
By Eyeless Fish
I like this app. But it keeps crashing. Even though I just downloaded the update.
The last upgrade ruined it. 1/5
The Crackle app worked great until the last upgrade. Since the last upgrade, the app no longer works and constantly crashes. I use an older iPad which runs on iOS 9. I can't afford to buy a new iPad in order to use this app. Crackle should at least allow users of older iPads which run on iOS 9 to downgrade to the last version of the app which worked well. I never would have pushed the upgrade button if I had known that it would make the Crackle app unusable. So long, Crackle. It's too bad that you ruined a good thing.
Searched for a movie in google. Crackle said they had it. They did not 1/5
By Buddha rob
Either license the movie or Change or search info. Misleading and I had to waste time downloading the app
Does Not Work 1/5
2018 not a good year for updates. App does not play. Bummer
I can’t even use my Apple HDMI to DVI Adapter , it doesn’t show up on my tv all it does it display crackle logo.
Sony Entertainment? 1/5
Good stuff, bad execution. 3/5
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.
Stupid nonsense waste of time app. 1/5
From Sony. Ok so please Sony learn from other free apps. Your app on Samsung TV is just like school bully. This piece of crap if designed by Sony then no wonder down to years Sony will devastate. I mean how the hell one can design sluggish slow non responsive dragging app which is quite a nonsense in entertainment industry. I will rather write Samsung to get rid of this crap from TV which is just causing anxiety stress even to have on TV.
This app is perfect 5/5
It has everything Netflix doesn’t
Do not get 1/5
Doesn’t even work I would rather use Netflix than this piece of crap
App does not work 1/5
By Mr. Bob 5702
Since last update 2/6/18 movies will not load.
Won’t play super mansion. 2/5
When one of your original shows won’t play any more you guys have issues fix this.
This app aren’t working 1/5
By Hamoud bro
Why didn’t come out movies n tv shows when I’ve created account aren’t working please fix it now I’ve really need it n thank you ❤️
Update made things bad 1/5
Downloaded the app after giving up Hulu and Netflix. Loved the app and the programming. Ever since the update a few days ago, the app went downhill. Subtitles come on automatically and sometimes I can’t turn them off, shows won’t play, and I used to be able to keep playing an episode after turning off the screen but I can no longer do that. Bring back the old version please.
Crappy update 1/5
Unusable app since update Feb 5. Takes long time to load, shuts down multiple times before finally opens, finally get to program to watch but shuts down rather than starting program. Never been great app but now worthless. Tried deleting app & reinstalling but no change.
Was ok at first 3/5
The only issue I had at first was it taking forever to load on my tv while streaming but now I can’t even stream anymore because the icon has just disappeared.
Could not even play ad, have no idea what a video looks like. To the trash it goes. Why is this ok to be in App Store when it’s trash!

Did North Korea hack Sony's Crackle? 1/5
Did North Korea hack Sony's Crackle? Version 5.7 on 2/5/18 is a disaster! Went from 5 stars to 1, should be zero. SLOW to load and if I can stand to wait for it to load it CRASHES when a show is selected. So much for fixing something that's not broken.
Worst user app 1/5
Awful app..doesn't auto load,,always have to search for shows again. Sooooo many commercials. Will be deleting app and watching Netflix.
Thank you guys!!!! 5/5
I’m sad to see my old review go because I wrote the hell out of it 😂, but I gotta give you guys a better star review because you came through for me 😥. Thank you for fixing the app and responding to my issue about it. It’s the only app that I know of with the throwback shows and I’m so happy I can watch now. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! 🙌🏽😝
Still needs bug fixes 2/5
Why does the playback skip full episodes? When I’m binge watching Heroes I have to open the app and select the episode I’m on instead of playing the next one automatically.
I just downloaded your update to the app within 24 hours an now it will not cast to my SmartCast television.
By Xxx o m g
We have a GB/second Wifi at home and your app still doesnt load in a minute !!! Cheap Af
Don't waste your time! 1/5
This was a decent app at one time but it doesn't run correctly now and when it does the amount of ads you have to sit through makes it unbearable.
After update problem 3/5
By jim tigges
On my iPad 3 now it will not go back to portrait mode, & takes forever for main page thumbnails to load, plus tried to send a message to Crackle help and that would not go through
Good thing ruined 1/5
Says I have WiFi only turned on. I don’t. Terrible update. App responds so slow and then finally fails to play.
Actually free shows but meh shows 2/5
By 5k Tessa
Okay, so this is actually a free Netflix like service with lots of ads but the ads don't really bother me if I actually want to watch something on here. But there nothing much that interests me, Seinfeld is the best show on here. I am interested in watching the animes, but I refuse to in Japanese and reading subtitles. Not enjoyable. Why can't you guys get English dubs? So besides Seinfeld there aren't any shows on here I even want to watch.
Thank You! 5/5
I submitted a recent feedback for optimization for iPhone X and before I knew it there was an update and my feedback was heard. Thank you so much for listening!
Need to update movies 2/5
There’s not really any newer movies on there lot of old movie but if you like the old type of movies then this is the app for you
OH MY GOD ADS 1/5
By Dark rave
Why is there SOOOOOOOO many ads!!!?!?!? It’s so annoying!!
You try to watch something and every 10 minutes there’s like 6-7 ADS! It’s so annoying!!
This is the worst app to watch shows on ever
I would rate 0 stars if I could -_-
Plenty of good movies 5/5
Plenty of good movies. I cancelled my Netflix account.
By flipp junk
Who watches this old crap that is on here? Suppose to be new shows and movies! Don’t waist your time!!!!
I love the content. I love the concept. I even love the ads. But this app has severe buffering issues. Kept having to press play to watch and it kept going to commercials. 😒 How sad. Works well on tv but not iphone.
Thought I’d give it another shot. Can’t even load first ad. Still works on tv.
If you like Commercials, you’ll love Crakle 1/5
Too many dang commercials! And the commercials are poorly managed, often repeating the same break over and again. Hardly worth the effort to get a slim selection of things to watch
It ‘Movie 1/5
By Lay High
Supports the IT movie but they don’t.
Won’t load on IOS 11 1/5
This used to be a nice app until someone decided to fiddle around with it with unneeded updates. Now it won’t even load on my iPad, iPhone, or Samsung smart TV. Useless.
The app is good. Way too many ads! That’s the only bad thing I can come up with. Because of that I give it 2 stars because the ads seem to be on longer than the actual program.
When I put me subtitles on and a ad comes up it freezes my screen
