Crackle launches first free Android app for streaming movies and TV shows

I just got wind of Crackle the other day and it seems like a promising alternative to Hulu and Netflix for watching free movies. And now there’s an Android app, which I probably won’t use since it’ll drain the shit out of my battery, but if I’m flying then I may consider using it in a pinch.

Following the success of its positively reviewed iPhone and iPad applications, Crackle and Sony Pictures Entertainment announced the release today of their new free app for the Android platform.  The new ad supported app is currently the only free app with both full length movies and television shows available.

In a statement from Crackle, Phil Lynch, VP of Digital Networks at Sony Pictures Television said, “We were thrilled with the reception that the Crackle iPhone and iPad app received this April and are extremely excited to now bring our unrivaled destination for un-cut feature films and television series to Android users.  The Android app furthers Crackle’s mission to provide curated content from our audiences’ favorite genres including action, comedy, crime, horror, thriller and sci-fi.”
