If anyone happens to remember October of last year, a new streaming video app appeared in the Android Market called Crackle. It was a subscription based service which offered some video for free but the premium videos were to cost you $4.99/month. It ended up being there for quite some time and then it all of a sudden it disappeared. We're not exactly sure as to why but we are glad to see it come back and this time around it's totally free for end users.

You'll need a device running at least Android 2.2 and Flash in order to watch the full-length TV shows and movies offered by Crackle but if you live in US, Canada, United Kingdom or Australia you're pretty much good to go. The only other caveat to the app right now is the fact it's not suited for tablets as of yet but we're hoping that will be addressed in a future update. Hit the break for the download link -- once you're up and running watching Ghostbusters, it'll all be worth it.

Can't download on my Droid X or my Charge...

Bla1ze says:

Droid X is on the supported list. Charge however, is not.

Stang68 says:

The Charge should be required with this screen! haha

awal1987 says:

however i can see why it isnt available for the DC. it works about 70% of the time.

for that matter, beautiful widgets is also on there for free.

Just downloaded to my Epic, thanks for the heads up. Use Crackle on the Roku box from time to time.

rob_ashsu says:

hounddog88 says:

Not available for the xperia play but will work on my og droid? How does that make sense

Bla1ze says:

I'm guessing they never actually updated the app all that much from when the original was put in there. I'd try loading up the .apk direct on the Xperia just to see.

Especially when the Xperia Play is SHOWN IN THE AD running it! LOL

Zylograth says:

not found on the T-Mobile Sensation 4G...

The audio is way behind the video, epic 4G

manyard77 says:

Can't find it for my DInc2 :(

Working great on my TBolt.

Now has some Seinfeld episodes. It has the yada yada yada episode which I can never get to play at the website.

App is ad supported which I can totally live with. One really nice option is that you can pause the video.

this app gets premium placement on my device right next to HBOGO. :)

Works, little jumpy from time to time on EVO 4G running Kingdom rom sense 3.0

joshua.worth says:

Works on my Droid X too sputtery

nbajam says:

Such fail to not have honeycomb support.

What's funny is that if you search for it with a honeycomb tablet (i have the moto xoom) it shows up in the market, but the download fails. If it's not supported then why is it in the market?

machboy351 says:

Just searched for this in the market and nothing available... fascinate

rbess1965 says:

Looking with my Charge, nothing in the market on it.

Xopher says:

Interesting that there isn't a Samsung device on the list at all.

hounddog88 says:

Anyone have the apk for us other devices to try

wyldemf says:

Watching Ghostbusters right now on my EVO 4G running 2.3.4. (Deck's) Looks great, only problem when it switches to the commercial, it lets my screen sleep.

t_reax says:

I just finished watch "Joe Dirt"... My first ever complete moving viewing of a full length movie on my HTC Thunderbolt /w no problems with buffering during the entire movie on 3G... Amazing, not to mention that this app from the market is FREE!!!

VCL says:

Tried going to the market and no go for the Sensation. Tried the Barcode Scanner and still nothing. Maybe someone could put up the apk and could try that way.

meyerweb says:

It's a good thing it's free, because there sure isn't much content that I'd consider paying for. Antique TV shows and 3rd rate movies don't provide a whole lot of excitement.

It may not have honeycomb support, but you can still watch it in the browser. That's what I had to do with my Xoom.
