Netflix iPad App Updated With New Layout

by on March 6th, 2011

Netflix launched in Canada last fall and the iPad app works great. Even though the initial library was limited, more new releases are constantly being added.

Just recently, the iPad app’s layout got a new refresh, and it now looks more like the Netflix iPhone app. The new interface still shows your Top Picks and top movie genres, but now there is more wasted space compared to before. What’s interesting is this update wasn’t through the App Store, it was just updated automatically within the app.

Before:

After:

The frustrating part is when browsing titles by Genres, there is a limit of how many show up even after clicking “more”. After seeing some good recommendations on my Apple TV, I didn’t see them on the Netflix iPad app and had to search for them.

The app still works great, but there needs to be a bookmarking or queuing feature. There are just too many titles I want to watch but keep forgetting about.
