Crackle - TV & Movies is available for Android 2.2 and later, including Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It's also available optimised for most Android tablets, as well as a plethora of Android phones. It looked and worked fine on our Samsung Galaxy 10.1 tablet. Visit Crackle app review.
It's easy to use and looks good. And in our tests playback was pretty flawless, where connectivity was decent. It's worth pointing out, however, that lots of user reviews complain about interrupted playback and connectivity issues. And as good as the app is, you'll judge Crackle - TV & Movies on the quality of movies and TV shows you get to enjoy. See also: Best Android Apps.
The content available via the Crackle - TV & Movies app is, well, what you might expect for the price. Free. The films are all of the 'classic' variety (and some are more classic than others). There are some gems in there, I'm sure, but we struggled to find any. We're talking 80s and 90s B-movies, and the less successful entries in Guy Ritchie's canon. And that's not a good thing. (Seriously, 'Street Fighter' is here, and not in a good way.
The TV collection consists mostly of US content of a similar ilk and era, and many of the better stuff is published in 'minisodes' - five-minute versions of 30-minute shows.
This is frustrating, as Crackle trumpets its collection as containing whole series of Seinfeld, genuine classics such as Donnie Brascoe, and the original Ghostbusters movie, for instance. We can only assume that the issue is one of licensing, and our US cousins are enjoying much better content on their side of the pond. And it makes Crackle - TV & Movies an app that's worth installing if you have the space, but not as yet compelling for a UK audience.
