Let me start with the good. I was able to watch a movie that was not streamable elsewhere. Now the bad. I understand that this is ad supported. It’s actually good, because that also means it’s free. What’s not good is that the ads start out at a reasonable frequency, then seem to be every few scenes in the movie. Even that wouldn’t be as bad if it wasn’t the same ad over and over again. A bait and switch for online gambling that promises a money back guarantee that ends up being only redeemable for store credit. Also, as the movie progressed it became laggier than 90’s online video using a dial up connection. Yet no problems with other streaming before or after it using other services. For this to be useable the lagginess needs to be fixed and the ads need to be more diverse. I’ll likely try again, but only for something not streamable elsewhere.

I like crackle

I had an account with this app before Chicken Soup...Sony+ 2019 transition. At that time ,I could not view anything and would get a msg. That the app was not available in my area?? Although it was fine before shares were sold ,Crackle Plus. Anyway, I got another video company & loved them more. But, decided to see what happened to my account on “Crackle”,Months later, I suppose the company got their acct. holders back online and I could access “Crackle “again. I don’t care for the frequent low budget “B” movies R, X rated films they offer , but at least they do rate the films. I have to go on-line to get a true description of their movies .
The alphabet search engine is way off. Type (A) in the search window and you will get a list of any movie with an (A) In the title ?? Title search needs improvement I have found some oldie Danny Kaye, Bob Hope, but many films I like could just as well be found on-line with other streams that have smoother & easier buffering. “ Crackle” films’ buffer is irritatingly & increasingly slow.

I like this app a lot

I use this app a lot, I have a boring job so I watch movies on it when I’m at work. I like the movie selection, I like how it has a lot of good movies from back around the 90s and early 2000s since that was the best era of film in my opinion. I don’t mind the advertising breaks, it’s just like watching tv. But a lot of times after the ads are finished, the X, “Learn More” link at the bottom and Ad Length time in the top right corner gets stuck on the screen and it’s annoying. You have to close out of the app, reopen it and find your movie again. It’s the only way to get everything off the screen. It saves your point in the movie though so it picks right back up where you left off which is a plus. I wish there was a fix you guys could do for that. Then it would be totally fine.
