Customer Reviews

  • Great app

    by Turtlefrank

    This is one of the better apps on my iPod. there are some pretty good movies and they give you benefits for watching and interacting with different parts of the app. Only thing I could ask for is more movies.


    by Gaming studios

    This app would be wayyyyy better if a search feature was added

  • Awesome

    by Barbadison


  • Crap

    by 75632rxodj

    Slow af and the ads always freeze and I have to start it over. So annoying. Other than that it's good

  • Happy

    by Sergio Lopez


  • What I think

    by Orlando Coffman

    This app is great to relax with

  • Works great

    by 2greezy

    This version works a lot better than previous versions, doesn't freeze when selecting a show or movie to watch while the ad is playing, as previous versions did. Wish it would work with Chromecast.

  • Can't search by title and no way to contact support.

    by MichelleGoBlue

    Good amount of titles are available. And I rarely have issues with the media streaming, on ipad, iPhone or laptop. And it's helpful that you can get an update whenever anything new is added. My two big beefs, and these nearly outweigh the benefits, are that at least on the app you cannot search by title. You just have to browse. And secondly, there is no way that I can tell to contact support. When you ask a question it goes into the void of the "community". If they would fix these 2 big problems if be a huge fan and advocate. But these are big issues.

  • More variety, less ads

    by LovelyLipsLikeMine

    The app is good but it really needs more updated movies and tv shows. And the ad's are waaaay too constant. They happen like every 5 minutes. And it's always the same Best Buy and Jack In The Box commercials. I could understand 3 or 4 ads each movie but they are every 5 minutes.

  • Awesome app

    by Trenton pearson

    This is the most awesome app ever!!!!

  • Good app!

    by Holden1004


  • Meh.

    by jpgassmann

    It's ok, but has ads and no HD. Not canceling my Netflix account anytime soon.

  • Awesome

    by Sammatt1215

    So far so good

  • 4 Stars

    by PsychRAW

    Pretty cool app. Shows and movies I've actually heard of.

  • Awesome!

    by Naniiiiiiiiiiiiii

    Loving it very much, especially when you can't afford cable or other movie offers. I have fun to running through the movies and trying it all out, and my iPad is also a great way to watch your movies to. Thank you thank you.

  • Ads really

    by King loo

    The ads every 5 mins are aggy

  • Great app room for improvement

    by Rios yeller

    It was a good app great movies and shows but they could still add a bit more movies.all in all a good app to sit back and enjoy a good television show or movie.

  • Great app but....

    by PAPICHULO33

    This a great app to watch movies but , could be much better if they add newer movies , most of the movies are really old, also there's not that many movies to choose from, could be nice if they add a search option. And what's up with all those commercials and ads while you watching the movies?

  • I like the app

    by PaigeRyian

    I really enjoy this app, the only thing I would change is the outdated movies.

  • Fun

    by Cooking6

    I like this a lot! This is great when you are on the go and need to kill some time.

  • isn't working

    by nino lindo

    fixes please

  • Crackle suckssssssssssss

    by Krt65613

    Get netflix and no frustrations......... Their support sucksssss too.

  • Need more black shows

    by Explode23

    It's cool but need more black shows like the Jefferson and different strokes

  • Crash

    by LegendofJerry

    My app of crackle crashe recently talking about not available in my area

  • Good in theory

    by J Co

    This would be a great app if there were not as many commercial breaks during the movies. The shows have just enough. Also the selection is not good. It will not take long to watch everything you like.

  • Too many commercials back to back

    by amma5

    At first I could tolerate it but it is annoying and worse than watching TV. No search ability. I have enjoyed some older Tv shows but as soon as I finish them I am deleting it. Movies? You have to be kidding. I only found 3 that I would want to watch. If the commercials during the movies come as often as the other reviewers have reported, I won't be watching them on CRACKLE.

  • To many commercials!!!!!!!

    by Blueberrypie1212

    Way to many advertisements!! Every five mins commercial break! Come on!!!!! Just as I'm getting into the movie I have to watch the same advertisements over and over again! Also add a search button so we can look for a certain movie!! And more movie choices please! But besides all that it's great.

  • Not Happy! :-(

    by HappyGirl777

    I got this app specifically for watching Glee and I was very disappointed when there was not Glee! If you want this app for watching Glee don't get it!

  • No way 2 change language setting!!!

    by Jibswivel

    Crackle is useless outside the US. I'm currently living in Costa Rica & there is no option 2 change the language back 2 English. I downloaded Crackle in Fort Lauderdale, but when I landed in Alajuela & opened the app, it converted to Spanish. I'm deleting this app ASAP.

  • Commercial Web TV

    by 777Jinx

    The advertisements on this site are audience abuse. I lasted about 2 minutes before closing the app. ...Next step... Delete & watch Netfix.

  • Good but not Grand

    by Jdd335

    A lot of commercial breaks, but still nice app to use.

  • Good

    by Dragons23

    I like it but wished there where more anime titles.

  • Keep Updating This App, It Has Potential

    by NoodleEsteban

    I was impressed by the instant-loading movies, but the graphics and the selection of movies has a long way to go. I also wish the selection contained more PG-13 movies rather than the majority be rated R, I'm discerning when it comes to entertainment.

  • X

    by Lil-eeeeeeee

    Seems pretty legit.

  • Ur kidding...right?

    by B787tech

    Get back to us CRACKLE when you fix ALL the mentioned flaws folks have brought up...and the extraordinary limited selection of what ur attempting to pawn off on us. Uninstalled...!!!

  • It Would Be A Great App Except...

    by Jofe77

    for crashing during commercial breaks. I can understand occasional crashes, but every commercial break??? I would give it 5 stars but the frustration takes too much away from the enjoyment of this app. Whats the point of the app if you lose viewers. Please fix it.

  • by This is the only name left

    Great to watch movie my favorite is the horror movies

  • Colors are fun

    by Beenscammed

    Please change the color of your black icon. It looks ugly on my apps page.

  • Awesome.

    by Crazy P.rican Lisa

    My fav 4 drama series. Need more titles like that.

  • Gets better as you use it.

    by lobopack1

    Great program. Does not need Wifi to watch.

  • Crackle

    by suzuki04750

    Not enough movies, tired of the dumb geico commercial, slow loading and freezing. To many times I had to start a movie over.

  • Love it!

    by Ami Nix

    Perfect when you're away from TV

  • Filmes fracos

    by Educostarod

    Por se tratar de um aplicativo da sony, deixa muito a desejar, pois os filmes são fracos e a maioria de 2ª categoria!

  • Make it work!

    by yoyo2977

    Hey it's not that you are discovering hot water here!! It's been done and it's already invented. Your Commercial messages don't load properly, since is where you guys make money with It should be working properly, instead they won't load therefore the video won't load and the whole watching experience gets ruined!! Fix it!!

  • Needs improvement

    by Mr.Bean14

    This is a great app although... The movies to choose from is not very many There are way too many adds Also it crashes frequently

  • No content available in your area?!?!

    by Mathematic113456665

    It's a nice app, just please add more modern movies and shows. Like more of the actually known actors such as Sandra Bullock, Leonardo DiCaprio, etc. And more shows from ABC family? Thanks

  • Muchos comerciales

    by $$iki$$

    Excelente app, pero a quién le gusta estar viendo comerciales cada 5 minutos

  • Great movie app and it's free

    by Slicktabulous

    I like the app. It's got lots of older flicks and no charge for using it.

  • Great

    by Firehael

    Great app

  • Bad

    by Shaffhachuco

  • Good

    by bestofthebeast616

    I like it

  • Very good app!

    by Allie1964

    But it could be SO much better.

  • Why No Search Function?

    by PermanentWaves69

    Really? How hard would it be to put in a search function? Come on people!

  • Way to many adds!

    by Watcheditluke

    I watched more adds then content . Don't touch your screen or you will be brought down a rabbit hole of adds ! Deleted just as fast as it uploaded only good thing I found about app.

  • My review

    by CCarverJr

    Crackle started out great but know I can hardly get it to play movies due to freezing up.

  • Crackle

    by Sir Joseph Gotkiewicz

    It's crackalacking good

  • Great app BUT....

    by Laxislife_lifeislax

    Its a great app many good tv shows and movies but 3-4 sponsored videos every 5min is excessive, i get u guys need too but u should to lay off just a little bit.

  • Needs a search feature

    by QuirkyDaTurkey

    If I were able to search for a specific movie/show I would give this 5 stars. Without one, though, it's quite frustrating.

  • Love

    by Alliepoohgirl

    I love the app. I enjoy they have older shows and movies as well as recent titles.

  • Can't sign in

    by trekker4ever

    Haven't been able to sign in for over a week. Sent support an email with no response. Love to watch the episodes they have wish I could.

  • 2nd Try, Still Needs Better Stability, Fewer Commercials

    by $RUM

    So I came back just for the Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee content - which is great BUT the app still suffers from the original problems which forced me to uninstall. Even with unthrottled WiFi playback is sluggish with the screen going black every 5-10 minutes. When it does work it averages 1 minute of commercials for every 7 minutes of content -- making this novel idea the worst way to consume your movies / TV shows. Also it needs better ad serving logic. If the app blacks out, when it comes back you're forced to watch the same commercial/ad for 30 seconds before you are returned to the movie etc. this on top of incessant commercial breaks that run the same ads ad nauseum. Heck even network TV works better than the app.

  • lousy

    by Spili1

    Waaaay too many ads. Takes out all the joy of watching movies. I would rather pay for the movies not have to deal with the constant interruptions.

  • Excelente.

    by Enriquezcp

    Muy buena para ser gratis.

  • Love

    by Vivi<3love

    I love this app it slows me to watch stuff when my other family members are watching things I don't enjoy

  • by Lil Scarfaze

    Awesome simply awesome

  • Greatness!

    by Plenckuse

    It's a great app to watch tv shows and movies on! I love it!

  • Ok

    by Brandinwins

    Just looked at update later.

  • Great app!!

    by Maryanne's:)

    But needs a much larger selections of t.v shows and movies!

  • Way to many Adverts. Not enough content.

    by Dave.Prime

    Way to many Adverts. Not enough content. What's the point?

  • Ads

    by Just_A_Dude...

    Crackle is a cool app, I like it. But advertisements are way to often, and there's to many of them. I'm only 24 mins into the movie, and I've seen 9 commercials. Or why not have the same app, but for like 2-3 bucks with no ads.

  • 4 Stars

    by AccidentalMisfit

    Good app. Almost in same level as Netflix. Need search option. Crackle should turn Extraction into a series starring Jon Foo.

  • It's a mess!

    by Suze52

    I can't log in. Fix this!!

  • So far so good

    by Jlhdrah

    Great app I've downloaded it less than 24 hrs ago and I have no complaints.

  • Fun App

    by Jelyhann

    Great idea, love the mPoints too!

  • Account unrecognized

    by Rebelz25

    Seriously, no app support! The app no longer recognizes my account. Tried deleting, re-downloading, powering down and back up, and reregistering, then tried the non-existent app support with an automated response of, can't respond to individual emails. Guess if you don't want to customize you experience with the app you can still watch movies and shows. Very disappointed in the app support. Was great when it was fully functional.

  • Awesome!

    by Fighdjlxbj

    The app is fantastic! Has great movies and TV shows like Aim High! The mpoints r really cool and creative also! Overall great app and interesting concept.

  • Zero! Don't bother

    by Deafgirlnamiko

    Awful selection. It's all old tv shows, old movies, or B movies. Plus it seems not all of them have captioning so us Deafies have even less selection. This is junk.

  • Won't let me change the language

    by DeadsyDoll

    My app is stuck on Portuguese but my Portuguese is very minimal. I need my app to be in English but I don't seem to have that option. I really need that. Plus, my movies and stuff are dubbed in Portuguese. I don't know what they're saying!

  • Pretty cool app!

    by Ttjangel

    I really like Crackle but it would be better if you could search for specific movies or shows. Also during certain advertisements where you're supposed to be able to skip it if it actually allowed you to skip it instead of starting over from the beginning without skipping would be great.

  • Great

    by Steve Rawson

    I love it

  • Awesome

    by Shaolin621

    I love this app!

  • Crackle

    by None6244

    Can't contact or give feedback through app that company reads. Series don't work that are advertised for example only one episode of the company shows up yet it advertises 3.

  • Awsome

    by Stifles ghost

    I absolutely love this app works great I wish it had new movies though

  • Ok

    by Ruban9844


  • Update

    by Paaronoid

    Bugs that lag us out. Download watch list on command. New logo and layout. Faster speed. Optimize ios 7

  • Not Bad

    by ArmyWife4Life_

    Crackle is good but it does need some improvements. The most frustrating thing about this app is the problem with signing in. For some reason Crackle has some major issues with logging in. Quite often you are completely unable to log-in, neither through your Crackle account or your Facebook account.

  • Search

    by Matt Hanna

    Don't get me wrong it's a great app, but it needs a search bar to make it easier

  • Movies

    by Bilble


  • Crackle

    by Ashospritty

    I like what you have. Although the site could be a little upgraded with a search bar. Add more shows and movies like every four days, or at least weekly! Keep up the good work

  • Take Seinfeld off!!!!!!!

    by Heyguyshow67

  • Lo mejor

    by Esta demasiada esta aplicacion

    Lo es todo deben descargarlo

  • Too many ads and freezing ads.

    by Omega1019

    The amount of times that commercials show is ridiculous. Also the fact that the commercials freeze every time so I have to touch the screen, get sent to the ad website, close the website, then go back to crackle to continue watching the commercials. Stupid.

  • Commercials!

    by Whatsbesst87

    Whats worst then adds? Adds that wont stop buffering!
