Netflix streaming movies app now available for iPhone and iPod touch

When the iPad was launched, one of the cool apps initially available was one from Netflix that let you stream movies to your iPad. Late last month the Netflix app was also released for the iPhone and iPod touch. Netflix's streaming movie service has been skyrocketing in popularity, so it's great to see these apps becoming available. A helpful post on the TidBITs website a couple of the limitations of the iPhone app, such as not remembering where you were in a movie if your movie-watching is interrupted by a need to switch to another app. Macworld explains that another limitation is that its catalog only shows you the movies available for streaming and doesn't let you manage your DVD queue. But you can do that with other apps.
