Notable App Updates: Netflix Gets Revised iPad Interface, Gmail Gets “Scribbles” and NBC Comes to iPhone

by Marianne Schultz
 

Though the holidays are approaching quickly, app developers aren’t resting on their laurels if our New Apps and App Updates lists are any indication.  Some well-known apps received some notable updates this week, improving functionality and adding features for users to enjoy over their holiday vacations.

First up, Netflix overhauled the interface on the iPad, providing a browsing experience that feels a little more like a native iPad app and less like Netflix’s website. Though you still can’t access your DVD queue, browsing movies available for streaming is a little more fluid and functional. Note that this new interface is available only on iPads running iOS 5.




To stream video, you’ll need an account with Netflix – streaming-only accounts start at $7.99 per month.

Google updated its Gmail app to fix some bugs and add a few new features, of which the most notable the new scribbles function. A new button in the new message composition dialogue opens up a virtual notepad where you can draw or write anything by hand. This document will be sent as an attachment to your email.

This is a cute new function and I’m sure it will be useful to many. However, I’m still waiting for the Gmail app to work with Google Apps accounts before it will become really useful to me.

    This is because every security vulnerability that they may have has been rigorously tested, addressed and
    repaired, making this website truly impenetrable. Akraya, the staffing company in California, allows all staffs to work from home in order to avoid traffic jam when travelling.

    is currently yielding many results foor Intternet
    Marketsrs and Website Owners whil at the same tim enabling them tto spread out their content exponentially.
