Critix for Netflix, the popular iOS app that helps movie fans find good movies to watch on Netflix, has just been updated to support Apple's newest iPhone model, iPhone 5.
Critix 1.1 allows users to search the Netflix catalog and see search results along with their respective Internet Movie Database (IMDb) and Rotten Tomato (RT) ratings. Critix also presents Netflix's own rating score, along with the movie's artwork and a synopsis.
The iPhone 5, which features a larger display than previous iPhone models, allows Critix to display even more movies at once. When scanning a list of search results, which can number in the hundreds, movies that received an IMDb score of greater than 7.2 (out of 10) have their score displayed in green as a slight visual cue to the user that this movie is a "go," or a good pick.
With one tap, users can add a title to their Netflix instant queue, which is like a "to-do list" of titles to watch.
In addition to finding new movies and TV shows, Critix also gives users control over their instant queue, allowing them to rearrange or remove titles.
In this new version of the app, changes were also made to improve performance and to improve communication with Netflix, IMDb, and the Rotten Tomato web services, which Critix taps into for data. The app is in active development and new features are constantly being rolled out to users.
Critix for Netflix 1.1 is $1.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Entertainment category.
