Crackle offers streaming video app for Android
We've heard rumors about the Netflix app for Android, but Crackle has beaten them to the punch. Crackle's new app streams their library of content to your Android device.

The app, creatively named the Crackle Mobile App, will come in two versions. The free version will allow users to stream original Crackle content and minisodes. The premium version, which can be purchased from within the app, will offer a growing list of television and movie titles from Crackle's library.

Subscription costs are listed as $4.99 for 1 month, $12.99 for 3 months, and $24.99 for 6 months. We don't know how much of their library is already available, but it certainly behooves them to beat Netflix to market. When Netflix does come to Android, with their vastly superior library, the Crackle app will be an afterthought.

To give you a quick sense of what Crackle might have available, here's a short list they provided: The Quick and the Dead, Bram Stoker's Dracula, Drunken Master, Philadelphia, Richard Pryor Live on the Sunset Strip, His Girl Friday, See no Evil, Hear no Evil, Shampoo, Taxi Driver, In Cold Blood, and La Femme Nikita.

We suggest you go ahead and get a 1-month subscription, but don't make a 6-month commitment until we hear from Netflix. To download, either visit the Crackle link below, or search for 'Crackle' in the Android Market.

Crackle has the most horrible selection... waste of time.

There are a handful of other apps like that out already that have a decent selection as well, like Jetflicks and Bitbop.
