Crackle’s “It’s On!” moniker could refer to Location Services which the application asks to turn on the first start up.  The problem is that Crackle, even when closed, leaves Location Services on, which could drain the battery.  Users have to go into Setting/Location Services to deny it access manually (below).

We’re waiting for that bug to be squashed and also an Airplay option in an upcoming update (but otherwise it is a pretty solid way to get Sony content).
