The Crackle app for iPad

Crackle and Hulu are currently the two best sources of free movies online, but there are several more.  There won’t be many hits, but lots of B-level movies, indies, and genre films.  There are also several places to watch free documentaries online.

  • YouTube has a large free movie selection.  Unfortunately, it’s only accessible via the desktop site, and many of the good movies are the same ones from Crackle above.
  • SnagFilms is a good source of independent movies and documentaries. They have an iPad/iPhone and Android app, as well as several more devices.  Try starting at the most popular list.
  • AOL ON has some older free movies from Miramax.  Don’t expect any hits though.
