Netflix releases new Android app with better design, easier navigation

Last week, Netflix updated its iPhone app to bring it in line with its iPad and Android tablet versions. The design language got a bit busier, but you can see more information on the screen, including what shows or movies you’re currently watching at the top, and more choices when scrolling through your favourite categories.

Like the iPhone version, you can double-tap any available film or show and have it begin playing right away. The recommended media algorithm also looks to be updated, with more accurate choices based on what you’ve previously watched.

The new version may take a while to propagate into the Canadian Play Store, and you’ll need Gingerbread and above to use the app.

    Don’t really see anything new as far as the interface. My current version looks just like it and acts just like it does on the video.

    About time it was garbage and staggered while scrolling through it. But I switched to iPhone so I really don’t care anymore.
