    I recently joined Netflix and am trying to figure out the difference in all of the Netflix apps out there. There's a free one (Phone Flicks), a .99 cent app (Instant Queue), a couple of $2.99 apps, etc. Are their certain features some have that others don't? I'm also surprised Netflix doesn't have an official app.

    I like flixster. I often use it to find out movies in the theater, on DVD, and coming out soon. From the movie page, I can click add to que. It doesnt let me see if there is an instant or not. It just adds everything to your DVD que. You can view your que. I am not sure if you can rearrange your que from within the app. Havent tried that. The app is free.

    I have the free app [app]Now Playing[/app]. It does have the Netflix capability of adding, deleting and organizing your queue. You can also view the movies that can be mailed or watched instantly. It also supports bluray queues which I have. Not only that, the app is actually for movie goers so you can see upcoming movies, trailers, theatre and its locations, movie show listings. It's one app for all movies ;)

    App judgement from Revision 3 rated Now Playing as the best netflix manager, and I agree with them that it is really good.

    I use Flixster as well and I find it very easy to use and extremely handy

    I think 'now playing' has a little more function as far as netflix then 'flixster' BUT in 'now playing' i cant seem to purchase tickets at a theatre. it says no online option but in 'flixster' there IS an option to purchase tickets from the same place/movie/time/etc.

    I use Queuetastic. It works great. You can see your Instant and Disk queue and it lets you search or browse for items and then add them in Instant or Disk queues where available. It even lets you add blueray versions if your account supports it.

    I think it was .99 too. I found that well worth it.

    I use iPhlix and don't have any problems with it. At $2.99, it is one of the more expensive Netflix apps though. I really wish Netflix would release an official app.

    I use Flixter too, but I haven't explored that thoroughly. I mostly use Flixter because it was installed for quite some time, while I didn't have a Netflix account, and when I joined Netflix again, I realized I already had an app for it on my phone. :eek:

    I use i.TV. It lets me search, add to my queue (instant queue as well) & re-arrange my queue. Plus I can use it for TV schedules, movies information and so on. Plus it's free.

    I use PocketFlicks - Its really like having Netflix on your iPhone - you can see and edit your queue, your instant queue, see recommendations, see which movies are currently in your possession, see rental history, as well as, new & popular releases. At $1.99. you get your money's worth and more. Great app and the reviews in iTunes agree with me.
