Netflix app for iPhone is released

If you are a Netflix subscriber today is a good day for you.  Netflix has released their long awaited app for the iPhone.  Now you have thousands of movies ready to watch right on your iPhone.  The free app is universal for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch.  Netflix is offering a free trial so you can check out the app right on your iPhone.

The new universal application (iTunes link) is now available for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. The free software allows Netflix customers with unlimited memberships to stream content from their Instant Watch queue.

Users can pick up watching where they left off with a movie or TV show on another device, such as their iPad, TV, or computer. The application also allows users to manage their Netflix queue, but only for Instant Watch. There is not currently a way to manage the queue for mailed discs.

As with on the iPad, the streaming service even works over 3G on the iPhone. The software uses adaptive technology that allows instant switching between Wi-Fi and 3G connections.

Version 1.1 of the Netflix application requires iOS 3.1.3 or later.

Netflix originally released its iPad application when the device was first released in April. At the time, the company promised that it was also working on a version for iPhone and iPod touch users — a promise that was delivered Thursday.
