Review of Crackle Streaming Video App
It seems every entertainment company is coming out with their own streaming video application to combat Netflix. Crackle is the latest entertainment app from Sony . Crackle offers a wide range of movies and tv shows including comedy, action, sci-fi, horror, music, and reality programming.
Their application is easy to use, especially on the iPad. You download it and can start watching tv and movies almost immediately. There are tv series on Crackle such as Seinfeld, Married with Children, etc. that I watched all the time. Some obscure tv series as well as many beloved, yet short lived ones are readily available to stream to your iPad instantly.
The navigation of the app is easy and provide filters for TV, Movies, Original Programming, and Collections. You can browse the shows alphabetically and tap on any show for more information or to stream it immediately.
Complaints: Some reviews are complaining about the app keeping an open communication with location services. In fact, some reviewers are talking about it as if it were spyware. The easy solution is of course to go into Settings, Location Services, and turn off the ability for Crackle to use it.
