The crackle offers shooting video of popular movies and television programs that are advertisement supported. The application is completely free.

 

Introduction

Crackle has fast become one of the largest networks for streaming video available today. In fact, the Crackle website is comparable to Netflix or Hulu+. Crackle offers a large selection of a television programs and popular movies from Columbia Pictures and Sony picture Classics. However, unlike Netflix or Hulu+, Crackle is completely free. The streaming video available on the Crackle websites is advertisement supported allowing them to offer this service for free.

Crackle is owned by Sony pictures entertainment and has recently launched applications for popular mobile devices such as Android, iPhone, and iPad to allow users to watch these free streaming television programs and popular movies from all their mobile devices. In the beginning, this application provided streaming video as a monthly subscription of five dollars per month. However, Crackle no longer charges for this service but provides advertisement supported free video.

The crackle application will allow you to stream high-quality video with a 3G or Wi-Fi Internet connection. The Crackle website already provided a popular service, but now that they have released their 2.0 mobile device application the popularity continues to grow by leaps and bounds.

Requirements

Where many streaming video applications are only available for Apple devices, the Crackle site goes above and beyond and provides an app compatible with Android mobile as well. Android devices that run Android2+ with Flash 10.1+ can handle the application. Unfortunately, the Android tablet is not compatible. Apple devices compatible with this app include iPhone (3GS, 4, 4S, 5), iPod touch (3rd, 4th, 5th generation) and iPad. It also requires iOS 4.3 or later. But the Crackle app is best used on an iPhone 5 device. The application is completely free to download. And users are able to watch unlimited on demand movies.

Streaming Video Available

Although most users donít have any difficulties writing this application, there are some who claim the video is slow loading. This may have something to do with the advertisements that interrupt streaming video from time to time. Other than that, the video available is of high quality with very high quality audio. Even though the video is sometimes interrupted by advertisements, we feel this is of exceptional service to be offered for free as there are many popular television programs and movies available to watch. Itís possible to brows new movie addition in all genres and also TV programs. Additionally, movies can be searched for by action, comedy, drama, crime, horror, thriller, and sci-fi. This app is highly customizable by allowing users to create watch lists that can be viewed from the application or the Crackle website. Video available is HQ. This application works in US, Canada, Australia, Brazil, and some parts of South and Central America. There are hundreds of available movies and TV programs featuring all the latest in popular programming as well as over 25 series with more than 1000 free to watch episodes.

Ease of Use

Links to the Crackle application download for all devices can be found from the website but you can also go to the Apple iTunes store or Google Web Apps for download. We found this crackle mobile application very easy to use. Even if you experience life the way will watching video, there will be no delay using the software. The search function located in the software that makes it easy to search through all of the full streaming movies and television programs offered by crackle service. All functions located within the application are easy to find and easy-to-read. And video streams very well between advertisements.

Verdict

On all we were very pleased with this application. We found that it behaves very nicely on both Android and Apple devices. We have been loyal fans for the crackle website for some time. This is an amazing service to offer all of their Web viewers. Since crackle is owned by Sony entertainment, you can be comfortable knowing there are no issues with license the while watching the videos they have available. Now that they have created a mobile app for popular devices, we do not wonder all other popularity continues to grow. Although there were some users who complained about slowly video due to advertisement, we feel this is an amazing service to offer free.

The crackle app makes it possible for anyone to watch their favorite movies or television programs whether they are at home or not. Where other streaming video mobile require a monthly subscription or charge for download, the crackle app has found an amazing way to the streaming video on mobile devices available for everyone. The complaints given by other users are only related to advertisements and are to be expected by advertisement supported free application. Before I choosing your mobile apps that offer video, we recommend you give this application a try.

Summary: Days of our lives fan
Review: I had decided to give up on crackle as I was fed up with the same ad up to 4 times in a row several times times throughout each show - by the end of each show I was sick to death and annoyed with each sponsor. I decided to give Crackle a 2nd chance and, to my surprise I just had a few months of hardly any ads with little repetition which was perfect. I just tried to watch another episode and in the 1st 22 minutes had to sit through 5 sets of ads for the next Paranormal movie shown 3 times in a row. That is15 times the same ad. Are you kidding - you finally got it right and you have turned around and ruined your own app - again!!! Tell your sponsors that I will definitely never go to their movie because YOUR repetition of their product has turned me against the movie (and a whole lot of other products previously). I will try again in a few weeks to see if you have fixed things (a couple of ads - no repetition). Right now, Crackle is failing its viewers, itself and it\'s SPONSORS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
