Netflix has long underused the extra size and space of tablets on their tablet apps, choosing instead to use a lot of fugly gray, small icons and lists to navigate through the app. No more! They've just updated their Android tablet app to something puurrrrty.

The updated Netflix app for Android tablets (yes it's on the Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet too) has made navigation a lot more intuitive and better, the interface shows twice as many movies and TV shows as before. Plus, it's miles better than the lame sauce gray vomit that Netflix used to have. Movie icons are bigger, continue watching option is clearer, etc.

Interestingly, the new update is only currently available for Android users. Netflix says that the new experience "will be ready for the iPad in the coming weeks". [Netflix]

DISCUSSION

Netflix has always had the major problem of bad UI and bad UX - issues that are simple to solve and make the experience 100x more enjoyable, picking a movie shouldn't lull you to sleep, I should be interested and intrigued. Until they get that straight - and soon, they'll never resolve their interface issues no matter how much it changes from one device to another.
