Being an iPod touch owner myself, I’ve been highly anticipating the release of this app all summer (thanks to the early rumors and annoucements).
I checked the app store last night just before going to bed for this app and there was no sign of it in sight, so I had decided to write a post along the lines of “Where is the promised (summer) Netflix iPhone/iPod touch App?”. Little did I know that I would wake up to the release headlines (that was much better)!
Without further ado, I bring you a brief gallery of what you can expect to find in this little app..
That’s a rundown of the Sign-in page, Home, Genre, Search, Instant Queue and player screens!
In case you missed these details, hiding the keyboard in the Search screen expands the movie covers into view where there was previously too little room to show them.
In the player screen with controls, you should note the progress bar at the top with a “zoom” button to the right which zooms in just enough to fill the wasted space above and below the video (not pictured zoomed). There is also the play/pause button at the bottom which is accompanied by the 30 second backtrack button and the volume bar.
This design is nearly (if not exactly) identical to the Netflix app design for the iPad which has been released to the public for some time now.
If you’re a Netflix member and own an iPhone or iPod touch then I highly recommend you head straight to the App Store and download this free app for yourself! Enjoy!
