Netflix Releases A New iPad App And It Looks Great

Remember Netflix’s plan to radically redesign their iPad app’s UI that we were so crazy about? Well, it’s here now, and it looks fantastic.

That’s not all that’s new for Apple fans, though.

The Netflix Blog explains:

Starting today, Netflix members in Latin America can enjoy unlimited TV shows and movies streaming from Netflix on their Apple iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, or on their HD TV with Apple TV.

Also, Netflix “Just for Kids” is now available on Apple TV, providing a section that offers a broad selection of TV shows and movies for children 12 and under. You can read more about “Just for Kids” in Todd Yellin’s original blog post when we first introduced the section in August.

I’m a big fan of the new UI, how about you?

    Is that your personal screen shot? “Drop Dead Diva” is a top pick???

  • Gene

    But does it let me add DVDs to my queue? Or is it still only focused on streaming?
    Seems kind of silly to make me drop into a web page to browse and queue DVDs.

    That’s nice, now maybe they can go back and fix the Xbox 360 app, which was recently updated to a gigantic piece of crap.

  • Jonathan Ober

    I agree the xbox version took a dump in the usability and aesthetics. Just clunky crap now.

  • davidk

    Certainly better than their last crappy version which looked like it was a slightly adjusted version of the phone app.

  • Aj Tk427

    OMG, night and day, the old UI was terrible and ugly.
