Cult of Mac reports that Sony has just released an iOS app for its Crackle video service. The Crackle website, at Crackle - Watch Movies Online, Free TV Shows, & Original Online Series, already shows free movies and TV shows, and the iPad and iPhone app does exactly the same thing, and is also free. The web-based service was previously inaccessible to iPad and iPhone users because it's Flash-based, but now with the app installed you can download such movies as The Da Vinci Code, Big Daddy and Ghostbusters completely free over both Wi-Fi and 3G. The content is supported by ads, and also includes entire TV series. While it’s true that the selection of films on offer at launch isn’t that exciting, you might find the odd gem in there, like I did with a Jackie Chan film I hadn't seen, and the fact that you can instantly watch classics like Mad About You, Starsky & Hutch and Bewitched on your iPad, as well as animated series such as The Jackie Chan Adventures, makes it well worth downloading as a great way of catching up on some old favourites. Unsurprisingly, Crackle has already gone straight to Number 1 in the Top Free Apps iTunes chart for iPad in the US and the UK.
