Netflix quietly updates their iPad app
There are now 4 convenient functions, including "Home," "Genres," "Search," and "Instant Queue." But is that simplification really a good thing? The app now lacks user and critics' reviews, cast lists, and detailed movie summaries. Also absent are links to your account settings, the help page, and of course your DVD queue.
So do you appreciate that they've cleaned up the app, or will you miss the extra functions. Surely users enjoyed the ability to add DVDs to their queue on the spot, and cast lists were sometimes helpful to make sure you're selecting the video you want, rather than some straight-to-DVD knockoff. Parents also appreciated the ability to change their parental controls from their iPad, when they knew their children were unsupervised. What do you think?

First of all. How do you "quietly" update the app? They are not going to put a ton of marketing money behind why they updated the app. I don't get upset or see anyone else "quietly" updating they're apps. They just update them. That's it. Who cares.
