Sony just released Crackle, an app that streams full-feature movies and popular TV shows to your iPhone and iPad for free. For free. For free! We're talking popular TV shows like Seinfeld and Married with Children and big time movies like The Da Vinci Code and Stranger Than Fiction straight to your iPhone and iPad. And all completely free!
The app is the same ad-supported streaming service as the Crackle.com website and has a decent catalog from Columbia Pictures, Tri-Star, Screen Gems, Sony Pictures Classics and other studios. It's obviously not as comprehensive as Netflix or Hulu but you're not paying anything for Crackle, so Ghostbusters, Snatch and Big Daddy will surely do. The app itself is solid too! The picture quality was great on my middling Wi-Fi connection, moving around the app was super smooth and finding movies is birthday cake.
There's really no reason not to download Crackle, it gives you free movies to watch, great TV shows to remember and works for both iPhone and iPad. Maybe I'll finally see what this Seinfeld is all about. [iTunes]
