A while back, I reviewed a Netflix queue manager called Fliks. I appreciated that there were options out there for browsing Netflix, and I liked the interface of Fliks, as it felt intuitive, especially the endless genre sliders.
The app just got a major update yesterday, to version 2.0. While the limit of viewing 25 titles in the queue was fixed shortly after my original review, the developer has added a lot of new features in Fliks that will make it worthy of consideration if you want another alternative for Netflix browsing. The biggest is the fact that this is now a universal app for your iPhone and iPad, whereas before, it was just for the iPhone.
Previously, you would have to tap on a title and go to it’s description page to add the title to your queue. No more! In 2.0, it is now possible to drag the box art from the home feed into a “queue shelf” at the top of the screen. This is a quick way to add anything that interests you in the genre sliders into your own queue.
Other changes include being able to watch trailers on YouTube (when available), rating titles, Rotten Tomatoes integration, and more. The user interface has also been updated.
The full changelog is below:
New Features in 2.0:
✭ Drag to Queue from home feed (quickly add titles to queues)
✭ Watch trailers on YouTube when available
✭ Rate titles
✭ Rotten Tomatoes ratings
✭ Add to top of queues
Other Changes in 2.0:
✭ Updates user interface
✭ Ability to show/hide title tags in sliders
The developer seems pretty open to feedback and constantly improving the overall experience of the app.
If you’re looking for a Netflix queue management app, then consider giving Fliks a try.
