Netflix announced a free update to the iPhone app that more closely matches the iPad tablet experience.
At the top of the new browse screen on iPhone and iPod touch is a row that lets you continue watching shows or movies that you previously started watching right where you left off, a very handy feature. The Instant Queue, available in some regions, is presented on the Home screen just below your Top 10 list. Lower down in the new experience are several personalized rows filled with movie and TV show recommendations.
Tapping the browse menu gives you access to an extensive list of genre galleries that show even more titles organized into categories. Parents--like me--will really appreciate the children and family gallery with many titles organized by age.
A simple tap on any title presents all of the information for that title and a double-tap on any title starts instant playback. Also, search is available everywhere in the application, so you can always find what you are looking for.
If you've ordered a new iPhone 5 don't worry -- they're working on an update that will take advantage of the larger screen.
