Netflix May 31 said it upgraded user interfaces on its video streaming player for the Apple iPad tablet, iPhone and iPod Touch.
Disclosed on a blog post, Netflix said the upgrades include rewinding content 10 seconds, easier audio/subtitle selection button, a larger play/pause button and a more precise ability to seek scene location within a program. In addition, users now can choose to only allow streaming from Netflix when connected to a wireless network.
Interestingly, Netflix also added a “do not share” link for Canadian subscribers uninterested in sharing their streaming viewing habits on Facebook.
“The latest version of the Netflix application is available for download now from the Apple iTunes App Store,” wrote Michael Spiegelman and Chris Jaffe, who head product innovation on mobile devices at Netflix.
