    Glitchy app!! If you pause a video when you hit play it will jump backwards 30sec to 8-10 minutes. Then when you are trying to get back to where you are going to get several commercial breaks in the process. It will a lot of times get stuck in a commercial loop, the only way to stop the loop is to exit the app. when you resume a movie about 30% of the time your movie pick up where it left off most of the time the video is going to start at the begining. Way to many commercial breaks for a video, I really have to want to watch a movie to watch it in this app.

  2. SHEA MUSIC-avatar



    Not the world's biggest selection but it's a very well put together app it has a watch later, continue watching and watch now section which is a big help just in case you get interrupted or you want to come home and watch a movie to fall asleep. The only downfall is I feel like it's more baced towards the older generation. but if you're an old soul unlike myself you may enjoy the older TV shows and movies that they have on this app.

  3. Angelique Jacquet-avatar

    Angelique Jacquet


    WAAAAY too many ads even to be free and just now the ads replayed 3times before I realized my movie wasn't going to resume. Then if I pause, instead of starting where I paused, you start me back to the last break where I have to watch the ads all over again and restart the entire segment. It sucks and I'm uninstalling when/if I finish this movie.

  4. Yolandita Brangeliez-avatar

    Yolandita Brangeliez


    There are films that stop a lot and there are other films that are too old and do not have an updated film variety. Some of the movies are very good, I like some movies from previous years, but the problem is that there are many more ads than 4 ads in each movie, even seeing the movie half way back and another ad comes out. 4 more ads. So these ads take away the credibility and quality of the application Unfortunately difficult to watch a movie Without being interrupted by ads.

  5. Rj Starts-avatar

    Rj Starts


    Doesnt work. Have to keep restarting the app because the sound continues to play but the picture freezes. Also has WAY too many commercials. Will play a set go to the show for 1 second and then play another. Multiple times. Drains the battery on your phone so fast! And if you pause your show/movie even accidentally it takes you back to the beginning of whatever you're watching. And you have to deal with commercials all over again.

  6. Carolyn Shea-avatar

    Carolyn Shea


    This is a really fun app it's free and you can watch TV shows movies and new releases. Only thing is is it takes a little time for it to load. And while the the sound is good on what you're watching as usual the volume for the commercials is 15 times as loud. Maybe it's just my phone but I have a hard time hearing the dialogue. And my volume is set to high.

    I like crackle on other devices such as roku but the Android app needs some serious work. It is very glitchy. Half the time when you click to watch something a tiny pop up screen of it will come up and either stall completely or you can't make it bigger and lots of app crashes and time jumping. Then you can't watch a series in sequence because when one episode ends it follows with crackles random pick of God only knows what.

  8. Ward Style-avatar

    Ward Style


    Decent movies and workable free interface. The ads are beyond ridiculous. I paused a movie and went to my home screen on my phone. I went back and it played 1:30 worth if ads 3 times in a row and started a 4th time before I exited the app. It's happened other times on similar manners. I get that the app is free but this is really deterring me from using it.

  9. Tammy Murphy-avatar

    Tammy Murphy


    When watching a series and one episode ends, instead of starting the next episode, a completely different show or movie starts. Why?!? To watch the next episode of my series I have to search for the series again, scroll to the season I was on, then find the next episode. Ridiculous! I would not use Crackle at all except to watch something I can't find elsewhere.

  10. Aida Ramos-avatar

    Aida Ramos


    Don't even deserve a 1 star. As I travel I love to see movies. Crackle movie starts great but than it starts looping or freezing up. Never once can I finish seeing a movie on Crackle. You need to work these kinks out. I'm definitely not happy with the app.

  11. Daniel Chord-avatar

    Daniel Chord


    When I first started using Crackle years ago, the app worked great. The movies and TV shows that were offered on there kept me entertained, and Start-Up became a favorite show of mine. However, more recent updates to the app have been frustratingly glitchy. I can't pause without the app freezing or going back to the last commercial break and then crashing. I can't even finish season 3 of Start-up now. Please fix this app so I can recommend it again.

  12. JaKKe BrOwN-avatar

    JaKKe BrOwN


    This app isn't working at all. Not only its not working. I can't get the movie to play after commercials. This is beyond rediculous. I gave it a one star. Because nobody isn't going to fix this DAMN problem noway. I Dont even know why I downloaded This app anyhow.

  13. VOODUU PRIEST-avatar



    Im watching a movie and my screen goes black with this orange circle in the middle, 3 minutes later, 2 minutes of ads start with the orange loading circle showing up twice during those ads at a minute a pop. After the ads, the loading circle comes on for another 2 minutes before the movie restarts. Thats almost a 10 minute interruption. I make it to the last of the movie when the screen goes black and freezes. You're greedy amateurs with a faulty product. Get tubi. /uninstall

  14. Tony Baloney-avatar

    Tony Baloney


    This app is useless. I can't even make it through one movie. Twice the movie just randomly restarted and the other time it wouldn't load up the ads or wouldn't load the movie back up after the ads were over. Don't waste your time. I hate you Crackle.

  15. Asad Amani-avatar

    Asad Amani


    Good movie titles but limited, & smooth playback without any delay or glitch, it would be great if the app has a favorite list to select, it's very useful in the future when movie titles become much more than this, thank you.

    It crashes every five minutes. Finally find some hard to find stuff now have fun trying to control the volume without it launching you into something you're not trying to watch. After I watch this movie I'm uninstalling. No stars

  17. Jake Joker-avatar

    Jake Joker


    Not worth it. Selection is limited, very glitchy and buggy, you'll get the same ad multiple times in a row, pausing doesn't maintain correct spot, picture quality keeps going from sharp HD to blurry low res, constant buffering and other issues. If you want a good free movie streaming app get Tubi. There's also Vudu, IMDB TV part of Amazon Prime, Pluto TV, Popcorn Flix, Filmrise and even YouTube has free movies.

  18. hrnndz-avatar



    I like it. I would like to know how to change to the correct aspect ratio of the film without the app filling the frame for me. I'm using an Xperia 5 and while it's has a great 21:9 screen, I don't want media stretched to fit the borders.

  19. Phil Woods-avatar

    Phil Woods


    I don't have a problem with commercials especially if I'm watching movies for free, but when the commercial break comes the same commercials get played over and over again up to four or five times totalling about 5 to 7 minutes! TUBI here I come after I uninstall this one!

    ADS!!!!!!! MUCH! YEAH I know this how your providing the stream service free of charge but What THE HELL.... 2 TO 3 ADS per movie... And what's with all the buffering.... It takes four hours to watch a 2 hour movie... Please get it right or no one will Utilize your app....

  21. Husbandrew-avatar



    Trying to watching a movie and each pause takes me back to first ad break which I have to skip to where I paused only to watch more ads. Super awful but I guess it's free.

  22. Joseph Cassidy-avatar

    Found Crackle and loved it because they had all the classic Roseanne episodes. They seemed to have caved to the cancel culture and I therefore will be deleting my app. Was the only good show they had on here!

    Used to be good, now way too many commercials. It continually backs my movie Up by 10 minutes if I have to pause. However if I come back from a positive mediately makes me watch commercial. They have some unique titles which is why I used him in the beginning. Now so many commercials that it's just not enjoyable to watch.

  59. Ronald Godale-avatar

    Ronald Godale


    Wow the ads are repetitive. The same ad like 4 times in a row. It's free but borderline unusable. Sometimes you can't resume where you left off and the ads get stuck in an infinite repeating loop making you have to start watching from the beginning. The roku version is only slightly better. There's an option to watch one ad and interact with it to not have any more ads. This doesn't work since the ads repeat no matter what you try. Also they're starting to put ads in Spanish. Why?

  60. MLWDARE DOG-avatar



    I like that it has some movies I can not find on other apps, but when you pause it and un pause, it starts you somewhere else in the movie, that is irritating. Adds are buggy and I do get it's free and that is why there are so many adds, but so close togther? That is pretty annoying. 1 star is all I can give. Had these issues not been there I would have given 5.

  61. toasty-avatar



    This app is pretty terrible not gonna lie. It takes like 40 minutes to watch a 20 minute show. Let's say I'm 10 minutes into a show and I just watched a few ads. Okay. Say I need to pause it. After I do the thing I need to do, I unpause it, and it skips backs to several minutes before, and guess what, I have to watch the ad break again. Recently, I've watched the entirety of a single ad break 3 friggin times. FIX THIS. IT MAKES EVERYTHING SO UNBEARABLE

  62. A Google User-avatar

    Not worth the space it takes up on my tablet. First, it is very hard to find a title that I'm interested in watching. Most are 2nd and 3rd rate films with unknown actors and directors. Next, if I try to watch anything, all I get is constant buffering. Stop and start is not a way to watch a movie. I have 150 Mbps so it's not my server and none of the other streaming services I use, from Prime to Vudu to have issues with buffering. Unistalling

  63. Lisa Perry-avatar

    Lisa Perry


    I searched content I was interested in and found Crackle was the only platform showing atm so I downloaded. I must disagree with the usage of the word 'free' due to its high rate of forced advertisement . When I realised early in the movie it had ads, I searched its rate of ads per content and found it had a price I am unwilling to pay. My time is important to me. Having any price, be it my time or money, thrust upon me under the guise of free is unacceptable. I have uninstalled.

  64. Katiuska Vergith-avatar

    This app is a complete waste of time. Once (or if) you find a movie worth streaming your content will be interrupted repeatedly (about every 10 minutes if you're lucky). You will also be subjected to idiotic advertisements (think late daytime cable TV type ads geared to unemployed persons). About every 20 minutes the app freezes and you'll be forced to start all over--and rewatch the same stupid ads.

  65. Donald Geffert-avatar

    Donald Geffert


    Crackle sucks dick, don't use it Shame on Sony for being cheap. TUBI is free and has ads too but the content is much better. But more importantly, Crackle's quality and it's bugs are a big problem. To put it simply, streaming is supposed to be quicker and easier than popping discs in and out if a player. I would rather go through the trouble of using my copies of Friday the 13th movies on DVD, then using SONY'S Crackle APP.

  66. Sean Mcmillan-avatar

    Sean Mcmillan


    Buggy. Constantly freezes, jumps backwards every time you pause, has a ridiculous amount of repetitive ads. UPDATE:. Reinstalled the app because I thought maybe they had worked some of the bugs out. Wrong. If anything it's gotten worse, the movies are even cheesier and more ads. Uninstalled it again within 10 mins.

  67. Clark Rains-avatar

    Clark Rains


    Its a fairly good app. The issues I have is that to play the episode is set up so dumb it makes something so simple and easy on all other apps so overly complicated. Im guessing crackle gets paid if they can force viewers to watch a program even if its only a few minutes. So you start watching an episode of whatever you like. As soon as that episode auto loads some pile of junk program nobody would click on to watch so that program gets hits and views. Could do a lot better crackle.

  68. 2 Slick4u-avatar

    I decided to give it another try and nope. It's garbage. I found something I really wanted to watch and after a few minutes the screen went black. I got out of the app and it asked if I wanted to resume or start over. I hit resume and it took me back almost to the beginning for another few minutes until the screen went black again. I'l still to Tubi which is far superior and I'm uninstalling this horrible app.

    I used to like this app but now it won't let me watch anything. I choose a movie to watch and it says there is an internet connection error please try again yet I have full bars and all my other streaming services are working perfectly. It just sits and spools and plays about 10 seconds of the ad before completely locking up and not letting me watch anything. Please fix this, I am on a Google pixel 2 XL and streaming to my TV via Chromecast.

    This is an ok movie app, it would be so much better though if y'all did something about all the ads, seriously theirs way too many! And it makes the whole experience of using this app terrible! It's really sad to because it could be such a good go to for when I want to watch a movie and chill. y'all have good tv series and movies, if this issue was fixed it would be an AWESOME movie app and would definitely get 5 stars.

  71. Kason Malone-avatar

    While watching movies, will go to ad. After ad, movie will be paused, and when I hit play it will go back to before the ad played. The ad then plays again. It is caught in a loop in this manner. Terrible design overall, and frustrating user experience. Would do 0/5 * if possible.

  72. Sandra Mitchell-avatar

    Sandra Mitchell


    The ads ruin the movie experience and the movies jumps to different points of the movie. The worst of all is the movie freezes at any time during the movies. I wish I would have read the reviews first. I would not have wasted my time. What did they do to this app. it was good when I first used it. .

  73. Yvonne Harris-avatar

    Yvonne Harris


    I have had this app on two different phones. In the past no problems, now it takes forever to load, stops in the middle of a movie then suddenly goes back to the beginning for no reason and all the advertisements the same thing over and over again. Just plan BAD!

  74. Pablo solis-avatar

    Pablo solis


    Stupid 1:30s- 2:01s ads when you pause, already has lots of ad rolls on top of that. When you do pause and press play, then press pause and play again it goes back when you pressed play. This happened when I had pause for a couple seconds. This is dumb.

    Okay so I installed this from google play but it seems that it wants to update through the amazon app store where it has to uninstall to update , but it does not reinstall it, still the same issue. I can launch the app on the tablit and it works fine. In the amazon app store says that signature update change improvements for streaming.

    Horrible experience. Literally adds every 2 minutes. If you use this app you cannot touch the screen once you start otherwise it will make you watch another add. I had good experience with the computer application but the phone was not a good experience.

    10 minutes in to a movie the ad started. First it was a minute-and-a-half ads and it was another minute-and-a-half ads pretty soon I've watched over 10 minutes of ads about three seconds of the movie and then more ads could never get past that point in the movie guess I'll be trying popcornflix

    Atrocious user experience, insanely glitchy and crashes constantly. Won't even play ads without crashing; hopefully the companies paying for their ads to be shown on here are listening. Don't bother downloading this. I wish I could give it Zero stars.

    I love movies. Free movies, love even more. I watch the ads, no problem, if your gonna give me free movies. I have had Crackle for maybe 5 years and there has always been problems, glitches, just as the others have. I use to be able to watch with closed caption, that is gone. The ads skip or don't play at all. I have figured out if I have to stop watching a movie, I have to minimize the screen, don't close the app, the next day it's still there and continue. And now today, can't open app.

    Terrible. Screen freezes, then everything freezes on my phone, I had to remove the battery to regain use of my phone. Don't download this app!

  82. Paul Sandberg-avatar

    Paul Sandberg


    The question is, what are you willing to tolerate in exchange for a free movie? Because this app sucks. It hangs up, it glitches, it skips around. Sometimes after you hit pause, when you hit play again, it jumps back to the ads that ran five minutes earlier and makes you watch them again---at which point you have to fast forward to find your place. Again, if getting a free movie is worth the aggravation, then go for it.

  83. John Yellow-avatar

    John Yellow


    I like the movies but you can't watch them cause there's more commercials then the movie and the commercials last longer then the movie not only that some times you have to close the app and restart the movie just to get out of all the commercials cuz it takes too long or it freezes the app

  84. duncanmcfly-avatar



    Insanely glitched and just bad. Any movie or show saves the last point you were at when you exit, and then whenever you pause the movie/show it goes back to the point. I'd have to use the little scroller to go back, BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE. I may misclick because the thing is so tiny and I'll be forced to watch an ad, sometimes many times because it freezes. There's a 10 sec backwards button but that's no use to me. And if I misclick on the same spot, I have to watch the ads again. They'reinfinite

    I really wished this actually worked. If a movie actually begins, it freezes within a couple seconds. Works on my Roku TV just fine but on my tablet, laptop or phone, it's a no-go.... my internet is plenty strong enough. Hoping it can be tweaked pretty soon. If not, I'll be uninstalling in the next couple of days.... matter of fact, just read quit a few other reviews & will just go ahead & uninstall. Seems to be an ongoing issue for a long while. Bye-- Crackle! Gonna go watch Tubi, uninterrupted

    I would love to watch some of the older shows that aren't available elsewhere, even with some commercials. However, this is the buggy-est app I've ever used. Attempting to cast to Chromecast gives an error message, yet connected. Then playing the show gets 1/2 second then pauses. This happens repeatedly. Eventually it keeps playing but then the closed-captioning won't work. After boggling captioning a few times is starts working, but then stops at the next commercial break. Much more, no space..

    Between 1 and 2 stars. A lot of the offerings seem available on Amazon prime. Several I've watched here with ads only to discover days later they're on prime. I've been watching cracked for the TV show Just shoot me, but it's stopped functioning--not the ads, just the show. If the show doesn't work tomorrow, I'm deleting the app.

    Trying to cast a movie to my Chromecast was a nightmare. Kept saying there were playback errors, it would crash, and even go back to playing a previous movie I had (unsuccessfully) tried to watch. Of course, every time I re-tried, I had to watch several ads over and over again. This app is a hot pile of garbage.

    Lot of good shows but only if you can watch them. If you pause & try to watch later, it takes you back to previous section. Pain in the butt!

    Crackle has some "good" movies but when I search for my favorite movies it comes back as .... Your search has failed, please try again I tried to search for a movie I wanted to watch and all I do get are a bunch of clips from the movie but not the full movie. This app stinks for the most part. Don't bother downloading / installing, it is not worth the aggravation.

    When you have a timer for your ads, the ads are SUPPOSED TO STOP ONCE IT HITS 0:00. NOT CONTINUE for an EXTRA 4 ADS, im willing to watch your ads but when your holding us hostage with them it becomes a nuisance and a problem. You give about 5 minutes of movie before shoving more ads in our faces. It's very sad and apparent how greedy a company is when they aren't letting us watch a movie but instead making us watch two hours worth of ads. DO NOT INSTALL. It's a waste of your time and effort.

    Glitchy. Ads fail to play or freeze app. Sometimes after an ad, the movie plays with audio but no visual, requiring me to close app and try again (and immediately face more ads). Ten-second rewind sometimes triggers ads for no reason. "Resume" function usually starts the movie in the wrong spot. I don't mind watching certain movies free with ads, but the glitches make it too annoying to enjoy.

    This app burns WAY too much battery. One hour and 15 mins into a movie and I burned 50% on a Note 10+, which any other app and I can watch 5 hours at least and not consume as much. The commercials freeze up or sometimes ans also sometimes will fling you back to the 2 minute commercial break after 5 seconds of video or less. This is such a junk app. I wanted to see 1 movie and this was the only app I could see it on. I haven't used this for years. Now I remember why it's not a permanent app.

    This app was discontinued support in 2019! However, some of the servers might be still up and running though. So you might be able to watch some movies and shows before evrything is shut down.

  96. Joseph Stalin-avatar

    I give this app one star because of the fact that when you pause the video, it skips back to the last ad reel and plays the ads again, and the ads are extremely too long. The ads range usually at the two minute, which isn't bad, but pair that with if you pause and it puts you back that far. This app is horrible experience.

  97. Trey Gonzalez-avatar

    Dont bother downloading. There are fantastic movie choices, but the movies constantly stall, or suddenly jump over to their garbage Original Content. Other times the movie refused to start and crash the app whole streaming. But you better believe no matter how bad the play quality is for the movie, the 5 minutes of unskipable ads that play every 12 minutes of your MOVIE will always play without fail. Sometimes it will glitch and just keep playing as instead of going back to the movie. 0/10.

    Had to change my review, have not been watching due to the same shows?? No new episodes of anything on this app and I've had it for 2 years now!! 🤔💯 It was fairly decent in the beginning but no new update on movies or anime/toons? I understand about the ads it's a must on any free streaming app. But until yaw down load some new movies and animation Shows, I'm signing off!!!

    Is ok with a few good movies but plenty of other apps out there with a third less commercials. Crackle is terrible with the amount of commercials. Adding to this review. 5 minutes of movie then 6 minutes of commercials. Geez

    Unable to watch even one show/movie. The connection was so poor when casting to my tv (with high speed internet) that I couldn't watch any program at all. It got as far as four seconds of a pamper ad the entire time I had the app downloaded. All other apps and casting work perfectly. Poor service. Poor quality software.

    7 adds, 5 minutes of a movie. I lie not! Here's what Crakles about Crackle - 6 or 7 adds for every 8-10 minutes of the presentation. If you fast forward look forward to another 7 commercials. Rewind, additional commercials. It's a joke. Stick with VUDU or Tubi. Every few months I'll use this app for a day to see if improvements have been made. I give it 1 out of pity.

    Although I appreciate free to watch content and original programming, the app experience is a mess. On my Roku I played the 1st episode of RRSMA. When I tried watching the 2nd episode, it kept playing this nascar show no matter what I tried. The mobile app I was able to play the episodes I wanted and mirror to my TV, but only by locating the show through the search function. And say I had to pause the show; resuming play would force the show back a few min, usually playing commercials again.

    This app is honestly a disappointment. I only watched a single move and couldn't help but be annoyed by the amount of ads. After that, my second movie completely crashed my entire phone four times. Wouldn't recommend at all. Most movies don't seem that interesting and major bugs.

    Some weird playback issues. When I try to submit an email to the support email listed on the play store I get a bounced email saying that it is undeliverable. I guess the developers don't want to hear negative feedback! Same with the email from the app itself!

    Too many commercials, commercials are also extremely loud compared to the actual show and when paused the app just starts playing on it's own after a few minutes so that is extremely annoying as well. All in all this app is garbage!

    Would give 0 stars if I could, this is the worst app I have ever used. Tried watching a movie and there were continuous 2 minute long ads. After 1 stopped, another popped up again. Over and over, I tried reopening the movie and it plays another ad! So sick of this.

    Alwaysblazed82 PS4


    You would think that a multi billion dollar company like Sony wouldn't have more ads then network television does. Not only are there 20+ ad break per movie, but they are 2+ minutes long. The ads also buffer quite often, turning a 2 minute ad break into 4 or 5 minutes.

    Horrible. Content is cool, but the app won't cast. Keep receiving error. Than after commercial breaks it keeps reverting back to an earlier time point in the movie, forcing me to constantly find where It previously stopped only to be hit with another commercial set.

    Im starting to wonder if sony just hates Samsung or android in general. Crackle runs great on my ipad and my smart tv (Vizio) but has never ran correctly on my phone. I have been a user for 3 years now but everytime i download the app on my phone i find it a mess of glitches. Ads that crash the app, or the movie starting back from the beginning after an ad break and now the aspect ratio is off. Sad too because i like to watch movies on my phone when im away from home. Good original content tho.

    If you pause the movie, when you start it again you have to listen to commercials again and it take you back in time in the movie to the last commercial break. Very poor user experience so I uninstalled it.

  130. Taylor-avatar



    Awful app. Buggy and starts ads randomly, moving the time scrub starts an ad, touching The pause button and coming back moments later starts an ad. Doesn't save your place watching a movie and had it randomly restart the movie multiple times. Use any competitor over this.

    It's excellent application you can see all the shows and some great movies that you like. The most that I like is they have movie's from 70 and 80 gives bring me good memories back them. I wish those days were back.

  134. Quest4Redemption-avatar



    I give it 2 stars because every now and then you will find a hidden gem on there. And it does have three or four really amazing original tv shows. But other than that, doesn't add or change out movies nearly often enough. But the MAIN problem is the app itself is very unstable. I've tried it on many different devices and on all of them it will get stuck on ads. Often times if you pause it, once you un-pause it it randomly jumps you somewhere else in the movie/show. And the commercials... My goodness. I don't mind commercials when the app is free. But the amount of them is unacceptable. I have seen some movies that LITERALLY have commercial breaks every 5 or so minutes. Under 10 minutes. I'm watching a movie on it right now and I've had 2 commercial breaks since I started typing this. So combine that with it getting stuck on ads half of the time, and it's just not worth the frustration. Only reason I still use it is because of three of the Crackle original shows that I absolutely love and one older show that only they have. Otherwise, it seems like whoever is in charge of developing this app was the "C" or "D" student in school.

    It was just a mess. It worked fine until I pulled up a show. I got an ad, 2 minutes later, 2 minutes, 8 minutes later, another set of ads. Eventually when you leave a show enough, it started messing with ALL of my apps. none could open once without crashing, and once it just cut my phone off and not let it turn back on. It isn't even letting me uninstall it.

    I like this app but there is just some things wrong with it. First of all it loads too much and too long. Second if you pause your show it would just go back to after the last add played and then play the ad again. I think if you pause your show then it should start back to the spot it started and not go back to the beginning to the last ad.

    You need to create an account to use this app. There are maybe 100 movies on it. The horror section literally only has three movies; the comedy section is the largest with 35, but they're older comedies like Kingpin and the Bill & Ted movies. The TV shows only have a handful of episodes from select seasons. Close captioning isn't available on everything. Bottom line: It's free and the ads were not excessive (around 5 commercial breaks per full-length movie) so I'd have to say it's ok.

  142. Shadow Call-avatar

    Great quality, but the ads are too long and when I navigate away during a commercial it repeats the same ad over and over. I really hope this gets fixed, as well, as shorten to a reasonable 30 seconds. Also when I was watching fury and had to restart app because said AD glitch, the title disappeared in a sea of other titles, wish it would of saved my recent watch, other than that the app is great.

    Hope you don't have to pause it because it'll rewind the movie to where the last ad was and make you watch the ad again.

    The content they provide is pretty good, but it never saves where you are. I click the pause button and then play it and it goes back like 10 minutes. Not only that, but it ends up replaying ads because of it and sometimes even plays a set of ads MULTIPLE times for where there is only suppose to be one. Lastly, it never saves on the right spot of the show when I exit the alp. So, if you can please fix these issues I will gladly give you 5 stars.

I have cleared the cache, cleared history, enabled ads, everything listed on their website forum and it still does not work. I uninstalled. Fix and I may reinstall. Until then, Tubi and Pluto have you beat for availability and free service, as does Hoopla through my library.

    I really wanted to like Crackle. However when I try to play anything, it immediately loads a commercial with super clear picture then always says uh-oh something went wrong, and will never play the movie. Just commercials over and over again. At least 90% of the movies I tried don't play. It feels like a scam, listing movies that will never play to get me to watch commercials over and over again in the hopes that next time it'll play, but it never does. Hulu, Netflix, Amazon, Vudu work great.

    Excellent!! This is way better than a lot of services that charge you money to access. I had CBS All Acess for $5.99 a month with commercials ($9.99 without) and it was loaded with commercials.bthe longest break for commercials here was 60 seconds and that was very infrequent. I hate commercials but can handle this app way better than many pay services. It also has a large selection of programs and movies you can't get from Netflix. Try it, if you don't like it uninstall it.

    There's just not that many movies. There's a "few" that aren't on other apps. Movies play fine, but the pause and restart suck. You can't pause during the ad, so you have to pause during movie play which start up plates the ads again. And they're quite frequently spaced 3 ads in a row. The whole point of streaming and not watching TV.. is to not see ads. Otherwise, why bother? To watch movies I've seen 2-3 times already on demand with more ads than on TV or cable? Thanks for the few i watched.
