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