Stream on-the-go content of your choice

Netflix is one of the most popular video streaming services

With Netflix for iPhone, subscribers can get access to their favorite shows and movies on the go. The application lets you watch Netflix originals, movies, television shows, documentaries, and other content right on your cell phone. 

As new content keeps getting added to the streaming website, Netflix’s library does not cease to give you a huge collection of popular titles.

Easy-to-use, multiple categories, subtitles, and more

Available for multiple operating systems, Netflix for iPhone has been a blessing for iOS users. Since the app supports cross-platform synchronization, you can watch your favorite content on multiple devices. 

In fact, you can start watching a movie or show on a laptop and continue watching it on-the-go with your iPhone, iPad, Android phone, or tablet. 

How’s the collection of titles?

As mentioned earlier, the streaming service offers a huge library. All you need is a stable internet connection to watch the content. Due to the success of the company’s production house, Netflix releases new shows and movies on a regular basis.

Some popular categories you can explore include Netflix Originals, Thriller Movies, Comedy Movies, Sports Dramas, Hollywood Movies, Action Movies, and more. The app offers separate categories for TV shows, documentaries, and infotainment content.

Everything on the app has been well-organized and divided into easy-to-access thumbnails. There’s even a ‘Search’ box, which you can use to directly access your favorite content. 

Based on your usage, Netflix gives personalized recommendations. You can explore a vast library of content selected just for you. 

While other streaming websites, such as HBO GO, HBO Max, Voot TV, and Hulu, have been popular due to their inclusion of well-known titles, Netflix has been dominating the arena with fresh releases under its own production name. 

Having said that, even on Netflix, you can find hundreds of mainstream movies and shows in different languages, including English, Spanish, Hindi, French, etc.

How’s the interface?

Netflix for iPhone has been specifically designed to showcase the company’s ‘Watch Instantly’ titles. As soon as you launch the app, you’ll notice the custom carousels of TV shows and movies. These are primarily based on your preferences and past viewing selections

The streaming service also prioritizes ‘What’s popular on Netflix’, Instant Queue, and other parameters to give you personalized recommendations. If you want to watch movies or series in a specific genre, you can access the parent category. 

Once you tap on a ‘poster’ or thumbnail, you come across the information page, which has details about the cast, a number of episodes/length of movie, similar titles, and other statistics. Here, you can also view a brief summary or plot of the title.

Netflix also offers support for subtitles in multiple languages. This makes it easier to explore content from countries in Europe, Asia, and other regions of the world. Even the documentaries have been categorized based on different subjects of interest.

How’s the video quality?

Netflix uses dynamic quality control, which lets the app downgrade the quality whenever there’s a connection drop. This makes sure that you receive an uninterrupted streaming service. Whether you use a data connection or Wi-Fi, you might experience minor lags. These primarily depend on the connection speed. In a good network area, you’ll experience smooth playback with minimal buffering issues.

The video source plays an important role in determining playback quality. For instance, older movies or TV shows do not reach the same level as those in HD playback. Like most streaming websites, you need to have a trade-off between playback quality and connection strength.

Overall, Netflix for iPhone lets you enjoy a wonderful streaming service without any major issues. However, for new users, it can be tricky to adjust some settings or manage the queue. Since the app comes with a simple interface, it doesn’t take much time to get used to the features and navigation.

Netflix app is the only way to access the company’s content on your iOS device. Since it’s free to use, there’s no reason to give this one a miss. You just download and install Netflix for iPhone, and start enjoying your favorite shows and movies in a hassle-free manner.

A must-have iPhone app for subscribers

Among popular streaming services, Netflix probably has the biggest library of content. With its original movies and series, the company has been able to garner attention around the world. With regular updates to the library, Netflix has become an excellent alternative to traditional cable subscriptions. It also supports multiple user profiles with the same account.
