Netflix today updated its mobile app to version 3.0, adding several user interface improvements. Titles of TV shows and movies are now easily visible when the screen is tapped, and the playback buttons have been moved to a different position.

Most notably, the previously removed zoom icon was re-added to the display, allowing for better access to full screen controls.

Old version on the left, new version on the right.

We enhanced the player UI for a better playback experience.

-See the Title in the iPad player UI - Touch the player UI screen to see the title of movie/TV show you are watching

-Zoom icon is back - so you can now control when you watch full screen mode

-Note better placement of play/pause and Back–10 buttons so you can easily control your experience

The universal Netflix app is available for download from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

He's actually referencing a serious problem Bush had in office. He would forget that the flag was there, causing great distress and alarm every 20-30 minutes as he noticed it out of the corner of his eye.

If you're going to make comments specifically about the UK, you should probably avoid using the term "anywhere".

I wish the same updates Netflix does for the iOS could be also done for Sony Blu Ray player BDP-S780 which has the old UI, does not play in 5.1 surround just LPCM 2.0 and no caption option either.:mad:

I wish they would bring back their DVD search feature. It used to be great to search for a title and if it were not on instant, easily add it to your DVD que if that is the only way it was available from them...
