    Why doesn't the Netflix iPhone app find new releases? For instance, if I type in Shutter Island in the app it won't find it. If I go to the website, of course I find it with no problems. Is there a trick to the Netflix app? Thanks.

    ASAIK, the Neflix app is just for the WI content, not a queue manager or to browse the site. Since Shutter Island isn't available for WI, t won't show up in the app; there's nothing you can really do with it.

    I have found that 2 apps need to be used to get the most out of Netflix.

    1) The Netflix app for watching "Watch Instantly" content, and
    2) A list manager (I use Phone Flicks) for finding movies and putting them in the DVD and WI queues.

    I hope they do update the app for DVD queue management in addition to streaming content.

    I use i.TV instead of Phone Flicks, since I can also remotely set shows to record on my TiVo. Used to use Phone Flicks, but it wasn't necessary to have 2 apps that did the same thing.
