App for the popular TV and movie subscription service
Watch your favorite movies and television shows on Netflix.
The app is similar to what you would watch on the computer, but keep in mind that the screen is smaller, so the picture quality isn't as great. However, you have access to the same movies and shows that you would find if you were using Netflix on a larger device.
After entering your account information, you can browse by genre or the type of program you want to watch. There is everything from kids movies and shows to classics and new releases. While you're browsing, you'll find that there are some very good movies that are on Netflix that you might not be able to find on television or even on a DVD. There are original series and a few special documentaries that are interesting. You can make a list of the shows you want to watch so that you can go back any time and start from the beginning. Netflix also allows you to order a DVD that is sent to your home if you don't want to watch anything on your phone.
