Netflix has updated its iOS interface to run a little more smoothly and look a little nicer while playing streaming media on both the iPhone and the iPad. You can see the iPhone version above — there are bigger buttons more clearly laid out, and the search bar itself has “more precise seeking capabilities,” presumably allowing you to find a certain point in your show or movie more easily.

There are also thumbnail images on the scrub bar itself, and a few new options, including the choice to have Netflix not stream when not on Wi-Fi (to save data charges on 3G or 4G), or to not share on Facebook when connected up to the social network. Netflix was already a great app, and now the interface is even better, thanks to this free update available now.

Netflix for iOS updated with new player UI originally appeared on TUAW – The Unofficial Apple Weblog on Thu, 31 May 2012 16:00:00 EST. Please see our terms for use of feeds.
