I have been waiting a long time for this and it has finally happened.  Netflix has released their iPhone app, making yet another platform available to use their service.  I am a huge fan of Netflix and have helped to convert many to its congregation.  I will have no more excuses to finally see what all of the hype was with Lost since it would be very convenient to roll into bed and watch it on the small screen each night.

In this application you are only given access to your Instant Watch queue.  But, Netflix’s Instant Watch library is increasing dramatically all of the time as more and more major studio networks are allowing their movies to be streamed through this service.  And this will be a trend that will continue as it is Netflix’s preferred method of media delivery.

There is currently no ability to manage your disc queue, which seems to anger enough folks that it becomes their reason for giving 1-star reviews on the app store (those people are dumb).  This is the perfect app for movie entertainment on the go, and should be a no-brainer for iPhone and iPod touch owners to install.  If you don’t currently have a Netflix account, and you love movies, or TV shows, it is very much worth it to sign up.  Sorry to sound like a commercial, but it really is that good.
