Crackle 2.0

Earlier this year Sony released a Crackle app for iOS which allows you to watch full-length movies and TV shows for free. Now Crackle 2.0 is available for Android as well.

Android actually got a Crackle app before iOS. But the app that was launched last year only offered a few programs for free. You had to pay a subscription fee if you wanted to view any of the good stuff. Crackle 2.0 for Android is completely free.

Sure, you have to put up with commercial breaks and a much smaller selection of videos than you get with Netflix or Hulu Plus. But it’s hard to argue with the price tag.

The new app also features a refined user interface with featured content front and center as well as menus for browsing by genre, collection, or other criteria. The content selection isn’t stellar, but there are some gems in the list including Ghostbusters, La Femme Nikita, and a handful of Seinfeld episodes.

You’ll need a device with Adobe Flash Player installed which means you’ll need Android 2.2 and up to watch Crackle videos.
