Review from Kevin McCormick
Big improvement from the previous app. If I had to make one complaint it would be that it's really easy to disconnect from Chromecast if you browse the app while casting, just touch that little screen in the bottom corner by accident (and it's right in the way) and everything shuts down. Other than that, it's a pretty sweet app.
The Good: Buffering is not an issue with this app. The fresh look is great and much easier to navigate around. Some of the original Crackle TV series they have are actually pretty good. Movie selection is fair. The Bad: Crashes when fast forwarding or reminding. Auto-play when casting to a device doesn't work. You have to go and manually find the series and play it from there. Overall, I enjoyed the app and you will to. I primarily use it to watch some of the TV series they have. My favorites: The Art of More, Chosen, and Sequestered. Need new episodes though.
Crackle used to be a dependable site/app. Now it seems like the app, whether on my phone or on my ps4, is rarely functional. How is crackle a sony network yet it appears that the app is not compatible with the ps4 network? I thought sony was a big company that pride themselves on quality? Why do I have to go to a url to activate my account if I already have the app? Did sony put any money into developing this app or was this app a result of a school project?
Just downloaded so far i see few interesting tv shows and movies i haven't seen in awhile and some new ones i hope they keep adding more movies because it as much i do like classics it also need more up to date movies and there are millions of movies and shows that can be added here. I'll come back with another review for now its 1 stars.
Love you guys, been a viewer for years, even had the PS3 app. :3 ❤ I was homeless and crack provided me entertainment on cold nights, really fantastic thing y'all are doing. Nowadays I'm a homeowner!! :D But I still use crackle, sometimes over netflix like right now. Cheers
There were too many ads that showed while watching with this app. Every 10 min there was a break in whatever I was watching and 8 different 30 second ads would show. That's 4 min of ads per 10 min of film—ridiculous, even for a free app. Don't even bother, no one should be desperate enough to endure the constant ads. This app should be considered as an app for viewing commercials, with some narrative content sprinkled in between.
I like the variety of content available considering it is a free service. I can deal with commercials as a compromise. Terrible, terrible app performance on a consistent basis. App locks up 20 secs into a commercial and you are stuck. Force stop, uninstall and reinstall still doesn't seem to fix it. Very disappointed in the lack of basis performance from a streaming surface. IMO, look for content elsewhere. I don't experience these problems with any other streaming or casting app.
