The iPhone 5 launch is still set for Friday, and it sounds like there will be a lot of people who will put down their money to get the latest iOS device from Apple. Ahead of the launch, Netflix has released a new update for its video streaming app made for the iPhone and the iPod Touch.
In a post on its official blog, Netflix states that the new version displays many more movie and TV show tiles and galleries in its user interface, making it look more like the iPad and Android tablet versions that the company launched a number of months ago. The blog adds:
At the top of the new browse screen on iPhone and iPod touch is a row that lets you continue watching shows or movies that you previously started watching right where you left off, a very handy feature. Lower down in the new experience are several personalized rows filled with movie and TV show recommendations.
The new app, which works with iOS 5 and 6, also shows even more genre galleries just by tapping the browse feature. One tap on a specific movie or TV episode shows the information about that title. Search is also enabled no matter where you are in the app.
