Netflix

Netflix

How to download

It's for anyone who loves movies or shows.

Netflix has become one of the greatest services out there for streaming movies and TV shows to your various devices. On iPhone, finding new content to watch has gotten much easier. With the new navigation bar at the bottom of the screen, you'll now find four tabs: Home, Search, Downloads, and More. In previous app versions, there was a left-handed menu that featured profile switching, notifications, downloads, My List, and themed categories.

Why we love it

Under the new Search menu, you can look for new content by clicking on a category or by doing an actual search at the top of the screen. Under More, you'll find profile settings, notifications, and your Netflix My List. The new bar at the bottom of the Netflix app on iPhone hasn't been carried over to iPad. It isn't known whether it will eventually find its way to the tablet version. If you like streaming video, you can't beat Netflix. Get the app now in the App Store.
