    "App is broken"

    May 10, 2013  |   By mattumanu

    Version: Netflix 1.4

    Pros

    No I will enter at least 10 characters...

    Cons

    There are features you can't turn off.

    Summary

    Netflix added "Post play" to the app with no way to turn it off. Bad move.

    "Works beautifully!"

    December 10, 2012  |   By artcat

    Version: Netflix 1.4

    Pros

    With the right cables, you can stream it into your TV and watch movies on a large screen.

    Cons

    You do need to manage your instant queue from your main computer, but that's hardly a big deal.

    "Great app, middling technology"

    December 26, 2010  |   By J.G.

    Version: Netflix 1.1.1

    Pros

    The Netflix app does everything it promises to, including letting subscribers search for content and manage their queues. Other television and movie apps could learn much from it.

    Cons

    Streaming from Netflix is not living up to the hype. Many Americans' broadband and wireless connections are not fast enough to support streaming. Their content arrives pixilated, with the sound dropping out, or freezing up altogether.

    Summary

    A good app is undermined by the technology it relies on. Netflix's support of the also-ran Microsoft program Silverlight is a miss because it is not compatible with iOS. You will get better delivery and speeds using Netflix on your Mac or PC.

    Ironically, Netflix recently raised its prices despite the problems with streaming.

    "Nice app for "instant view" movies & shows"

    September 10, 2010  |   By cathykrieg

    Version: Netflix 1.1.0

    Pros

    this app works well for netflix movies & tv that are "instant views"

    Cons

    can't manage netflix que for movies & shows that are NOT instant views. that would be a nice upgrade, would get 5 stars then.

    Summary

    app should specifically say that it is for streaming & managing "instant view" items only.
