Following the success of the iPad app with similar capabilities comes Netflix for the iPhone. The new app was announced during the WWDC keynote yesterday as part of 3 app store announcements from Steve Jobs. The app will launch later this summer.
Netflix will work over WiFi and 3G (even with AT&T’s new limited data plans) and will allow you to stream any movie or TV show in their instant library at any time, any place. The app also features “bookmarking” in that you can watch a movie on your TV partially and you can pick up where you left off on your iPhone. Very handy. Along with that, the app also has adaptive network technology that will automatically adjust quality if you switch between a WiFi and 3G network.
Provided you don’t have an iPad, I could see this being a handy little app for the frequent train traveler. Tell us: Do you think you’ll use Netflix for iPhone? If so, WiFi or 3G?
