Great app!! 5/5
By Selene the aquarius
This app is really good for great free movies, yes there’s ads but I don’t find that I problem cause it’s FREE🤩
Extremely Frustrating 3/5
By Buford Can Stomm
I use this app when I get bored of all other platforms and want to stumble upon some hidden gems that the app often has. However, EVERY TIME I watch a movie, the ads (which I don’t mind, I understand they are implied in free movie service such as this one) come too often and at inconvenient times. Sometimes in the middle of action. But this isn’t even the annoying and extremely frustrating part, the ads ALWAYS CUT TIME OUT FROM THE MOVIE. I’ve checked multiple times and right before ads begin the time stamp could say 48:51 but after a minute or so of ads the movie will resume at 49:53, around a minute of runtime later! The app does not let you rewind to parts you miss AT ALL. It literally won’t do anything if you press the return 10 seconds button repeatedly, it will just go back to where started off from after the ad break. I find it irritating that when I “finish” any movie on this app I only really watch about 96% of the movie. The last movie I watched (Dr.Strangelove) had about 7-9 ad breaks, that adds up to around 5-7 minutes of the movie I’LL NEVER SEE. This happens to me on both my phone and laptop when I use Crackle and I hope it’s something they can fix soon because I’d like it if I could watch a FULL movie on the app.
Overall a good movie and show streaming app 3/5
By bryannn A.
Love this app a lot,but downside is if your trying to stream through chrome cast,the cast on the app is no good,very laggy and glitches at points and you can’t even skip or go back on what your watching
This App is a joke 1/5
Most of the movies will work for a short time but inevitably will crap out. The most annoying feature is, the ridiculous fluctuation in volume. The dialogue is so low, you can barely hear it. So you turn it up. Then, when one of the umpteen commercials interrupts the movie, they are so loud, they’ll give your ticker a test. Literally unwatchable, in my opinion. The return to the movie from commercial is generally when this app goes south. Good luck!
Could use a lot of improvement 2/5
Great selection of movies but can use more improvement when using a Chromecast, their is no option to forward or rewind the movie that is playing.
Worst app ever 1/5
Did not let me watch Annie 2014
Abundance of very loud commercials 1/5
If you want to watch a movie, be prepared to watch an abundance of very loud commercials. The abusive amount of advertisements played at an extremely high volume, makes the viewing experience awful. I removed this app after being annoyed for one day. It’s just not worth it!
the only problem I have with the app is the play button with a slash through it. What’s up with that?
Better than Hulu ... 4/5
Hulu stinks compared to Crackle. Not even a close call. I’ve had crackle for years and it’s never disappointed.
Not loading 1/5
I used to love Crackle! They always have a great selection of movies, but lately it won’t load the content for me to choose from. I’ve deleted & downloaded the app again but still no use.
Hey APPLE 4/5
I need u FIX APPLE TV bug sometime keep loading then “There’s a problem loading this content. “OK” then off to Apple TV menu huh FIX FIX for APPLE TV
No problems 5/5
By CLT 2
We like this app. It is easy to navigate and is organized. We use it at home through our fire stick and we use it on our phones when traveling. We like the movies.
cant chromecast 1/5
chromecast icon isn’t showing up in the app
By Restaurant Come and Go
extremely way to many 7 ads for every break from the movie is straight outrageous
You rock 5/5
Thank you for improving the app. Watching a movie casted from app to tv. Much better
Doesn’t work 1/5
Would be decent I guess if it actually worked. A lot of titles won’t even play. Tried two different platforms, same results. If they fix it eventually it might be decent hard to tell at this point since I can’t watch.
Too many advertising breaks 1/5
The selection of entertainment is average but acceptable, especially since it is a free offering. I initially accepted this as a fair trade, but the more I watched the more frequent the advertising breaks. It advanced to the point the shows became unwatchable with two minutes of show then a minute and half of advertising. The overall effect is the destruction of the show’s continuity and maddening repeat of endless commercials.
Very disappointing considering for what Sony once stood.
The app is not connecting to my chrome cast 1/5
The app is not connecting to my chrome cast
I can watch their movies on my phone but it won’t pick up my Chromecast to stream to TV. I never have trouble with Pluto.
Nothing plays, nothing works 1/5
We have an iPhone 11 and an Apple TV, am logged in, and nothing plays. It's useless.
Sony Crackle 4/5
By KJ Brodey
Has Potential to go up a Star just add some good TV shows and the Resume doesn’t work good either fix that too and more Updates on the app
Continue Watching 1/5
You can be 30 minutes into a movie, pause it and nothing is saved! I see why this app is free. It’s garbage.
Chromecast failure 1/5
You have to watch on your device. I have six other apps all working on my chromecast devices but not Crackle. Basically makes the app useless for me
Why take away chrome cast 1/5
It’s pretty sad that y’all took away chrome cast. Why????? U get a 1⭐️!
Tv cast doesn’t work 1/5
Idk why there is no tv cast symbol so I can cast the movies the my chromast tv
Restarts after every pause 2/5
When I’m using this app to watch a movie I often need to pause and come back to finish the movie later. But when I do get back into the app to finish, the movie is started back at the very beginning. NOTHING shows up in my continue watching section ever. Very frustrating. Also doesn’t connect to chromecast.
Doesn't work on my iPhone 8 1/5
Freezes when I hit play.
Previous to downloading the app it shows the Comcast symbol on the very first picture you see! Now that I have downloaded app I see that it does not cast, but only streams to Apple TV! Big bummer
I can’t seem to get it to connect to my Google Home/Chromecast so I can play it on my tv....
No Chromecast Support 1/5
… so what’s the point?
Will you be adding Chromecast or any other casting service anytime soon?
Doesn’t work as well as it should when casting to another device. Doesn’t always play and sometimes stops several times during the movies and can’t restart. The movie selection it’s decent. When I’m actually able to get the app to work properly.
Please Update 3/5
When I use Crackle on my Apple TV. I can’t save any movies to my watch later list or play them. Also when I try to use another device, I can’t log on. Hopefully this app can be updated soon.
Nope, just nope. 1/5
The barrage of ads is bad enough but the constant freezing every 15 seconds for another 15-25 seconds is too much to deal with.
All my other like apps work just fine. I would think that a company as big as Sony could do a much better job.
Started great, then the real app reveals itself 2/5
By M.S Ca
Started great with minimal ads. Then adds started to increase.. More more more. Now there’s more ads than there are TV. I timed it. 2 mins video 6 mins commercials!!!!! Not to mention there’s a bug/glitch in at least half of the episodes on start up (show) that cause it to get stuck on commercials repeating over and over and over until u give up and log out. Or throw your tablet out the window. FIX THIS CRAP
By mr movie 777
Se ve muy borroso y por los comerciales que tiene uno que mirar se merecería tener mejor calidad las películas y deberían tener películas mas nuevas gracias’
This is a worthless app from a company I would expect more from. The movies hardly change, even sorting from new to old does not work. It does not clear out removed movies. I would give it zero stars if I could. So much more out there than this garbage.
Not good 1/5
The movies on here are not good mostly old movies nobody wants to watch delete don’t bother downloading
👁🚫😈 (See no evil) 2/5
By 🐯 The White Tiger
(I came here to update my review from 3 years ago—since I just re-downloaded the app—and literally NOTHING has changed)
If you can get past the atrocious UI, you may be able to find a decent catalog of shows/movies... would be nice if you could search by genre. Also, the fact that this app STILL doesn’t integrate with the TV app, doesn’t properly save your last viewing session, and doesn’t include PiP mode, makes me rarely use this app.
Especially, since it doesn’t integrate with the TV app, I forget about it most times, and only keep it on my devices because it’s free.
Also, add the ability to TURN OFF auto-play (after an episode)—it’s so annoying, and I do not use it on any of my streaming services.
Let me start with the good. I was able to watch a movie that was not streamable elsewhere. Now the bad. I understand that this is ad supported. It’s actually good, because that also means it’s free. What’s not good is that the ads start out at a reasonable frequency, then seem to be every few scenes in the movie. Even that wouldn’t be as bad if it wasn’t the same ad over and over again. A bait and switch for online gambling that promises a money back guarantee that ends up being only redeemable for store credit. Also, as the movie progressed it became laggier than 90’s online video using a dial up connection. Yet no problems with other streaming before or after it using other services. For this to be useable the lagginess needs to be fixed and the ads need to be more diverse. I’ll likely try again, but only for something not streamable elsewhere.
Great if it worked ..... 1/5
Use to love using crackle from time to time but it won’t work on my Fire HD 10 and also now doesn’t seem to want to work on my iPhone 7 so it’s pretty useless......
Where’s Chromecast? 3/5
I used to be able to use chromecast with the app but now it doesn’t appear. All my other streaming apps support it.
Won’t upload 2/5
By Wentworth Frank
I have been watching crackle for some time now, all of a sudden it doesn’t want to upload the movies. It tells me there was a problem loading this content. I have deleted the app and uploaded it again, and still same results. My internet is just fine,everything else works just fine all other apps I have. It will sometimes upload rite away but most times won’t. I’ve gotten to where I don’t even want to use it anymore. Very disappointed!!!
Popcorn & Crackle 3/5
Every night is a Crackle night so grab your popcorn & grab a drink, and make tonight and every night a Crackle night! Don’t forget to us code free movie at check out! Just kidding cause every movie is free with Crackle!! Enjoy
Repeated Political ads make me want to delete 5/5
By Waffles was taken
On my goodness, developers/ad execs/whomever PLEASE STOP PLAYING THE SAME POLITICAL AD BACK TO BACK 5 times in a row, I don’t care what the ad is, just don’t show it 5 times in a row, it is maddening. Please don’t make me give up on crackle and delete the app from my devices.
Seriously, mud slinging political ads on repeat, several times in a row starting January 13, 2020. If it continues, I’m just going to delete the app and watch content elsewhere because the incessant political ads ruin everything and no amount of content make it worth sitting thru the political ads. I no cap hate this app now.
Screen Rotation 2/5
On IOS 13.3 doesn't work.... I have it working on other apps...
DOES NOT WORK ON APPLE TV 1/5
Works on iPhone and the only way I can get it to work on Apple TV is to airplay from my phone. I have 5 Apple TV’s and none of them will actually play a video directly from the app.
Sad boi hour 2/5
By brooke cookie ate a rookie
It does not have the motive one for the money 😔
No Die Hard 3/5
When I first downloaded this “Crackle” app, my sole intention was to be able to watch the classic movie “Die Hard”. It had only been a couple days since I had watched the former mentioned blockbuster, I decided that I needed to watch such a fantastic film. I proceeded to visit this app and noticed that it was not on the home page as usual. After a few worrisome moments I thought of the idea to search to for film. After typing the entire title into the search bar, it finally settled on me that Die Hard had ran it’s course within the “Crackle”.
Why would an app with so few “watchable” movies take away such an addictive film. For this sole reason, I am only rating crackle as a three star app.
Doesn’t connect to Chromecast 1/5
By Bobby Ray Bands
This app is the only app that won’t connect to chromecast. YouTube, Hulu, Vudu, STARZ, Sling all work with Chromecast but Crackle does not.
