crackle is one of the many sources for watching full-length movies and popular television series. While the Android world waits on rivals Hulu and Netflix to offer its apps for the platform, the official Crackle Android app has already debuted.

The Crackle app is available for free and provides streaming for original webisodes produced by the site (Android 2.0 or higher required). Upgrading to a $4.99 per month membership will give viewers access to premium content like films and the full catalogue of TV episodes. Users can download a monthly key, a $12.99 three-month key, or a $24.99 six-month key for full access to the site.

Sony Pictures is behind Crackle, and from a quick scan, it doesn’t have as much content as someone would get with Netflix or even content as fresh as they’d see on Hulu. But if you’re into seeing movies like 8MM, Cheech & Chong’s Nice Dreams, High School High, Idle Hands, Starship Troopers 2, and Underworld: Evolution, you could be watching them from your mobile phone right  now.
