Netflix Releases New Updated iPhone App

Posted Sep 18, 2012

Netflix has updated their iPhone app to make the experience more powerful for their millions of users.  The new Netflix app on the iPhone and iPod touch has more titles and galleries.  It is similar to the Netflix experience on tablets.  There is a new browse screen on the iPhone and iPod Touch on a row at the top that lets you watch shows or movies that you previously started watching.  The Instant Queue feature is available in some regions and is presented on the Home screen below the Top 10 list.  At the bottom row are personalized rows that have movie and TV show recommendations.  When tapping the browse menu, you will see an extensive list of genre galleries that show even more titles organized into categories.  One simple tap on any title shows information for that title and a double-tap on any title starts instant playback.  Check out a video demo below:

This new experience on iPhone and iPod touch together with our recently released new player experience significantly advances the Netflix experience on smartphones.

The new Netflix experience is available for iPhone and iPod Touch devices using iOS v5.0 and above. Download the new Netflix iPhone experience today in the App Store.

We will soon release an optimized version of this new experience for iPhone 5 to take advantage of the larger screen.

For our members on Android phones, please stay tuned. We will be releasing a new Netflix experience for Android phones soon!
