Review from A Google User
Ad frequency is now ridiculous I've been happily using this for a couple of weeks and was really enjoying it, but the ads now make it pointless. If you switch to another app or rewind at ALL, you are shown two ads. Previously you only saw an ad if you crossed certain thresholds of % viewed. If you sit and watch and never pause or rewind it's fine, but why use this app then? And since there are only 5-6 unique ads playing at a given time you see the same ads over and over and over. I don't mind ads - they are why Crackle is free. But you need some sane limits on how often you show them in response to rewinds - especially the same ones over and over.
Playback Issue This is a great app when it comes to a free movie and TV show service. But recently (possibly with a new update), the playback function (which allows you to start a movie, show, or series from where you last left off) is having bugs where it will start the entire medium over again. This also sometimes happens after watching an ad in the middle of a video. Crackle Please fix this and I might reconsider rating five stars. I understand this is a free app with free services, but it still needs a little work.
FREE Movies and Shows A FREE Movie and discontinued TV show app that provides minutes to hours of mind-numbing entertainment. Along with plenty of commercials for trips to the restroom, kitchen, random acts of kindness and becoming involved in more productive activities. The CRACKLE app has closed automatically a few times thereby forcing me to get back to work, pay attention to important activities or just nap. Thanks for making the CRACKLE app more user conscious.
Slowed my nexus 6 down!!! After downloading this app I noticed my Nexus 6 started acting buggy and very slow so I went into the apps menu and disabled it. I love the content and think it's a great app if you have a Nexus 6 remember to disable it when you're done using it because of that I'm only giving it two stars if they could figure out how to make it work better on my phone I probably give it 4
Used to be great, no longer I understand as a free app ads are necessary but literally spending more time viewing ads (same ads over and over) than watching movie. Plus at every ad it brings you back to the home page so you have to see the same ads AGAIN! Spending 2 hrs to watch a 1 hr show is absurd!
Cool Been using a few years, only problem is the ads now are getting to be a bit much. Sometimes with more ad time than the a actual show itself. But, I love the show selection. All my favorite from the early 80s to 90s are on here. Don't really care for the new shows so this is perfect for me, just wish the ads could be toned down a bit, maybe even an in app purchase to kill the ads/multiple commercials?
It's Free! but definitely work in progress First off, it's free. Of course there is about two ads per episode/movie. Perfectly fine considering it's free. However the app is quite buggy. The Facebook login crashes the app, luckily doesn't stop you from viewing the content, just sucks for keeping track of what you have watched. Great to see the chromecast functionality, perfect if you are trying to be cheap with TV. Definitely could use more content, I mostly watch Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. Amazing show!
Squashed bugs so you can continue to enjoy all of the movies and series on Crackle.
