App Updates: Netflix Brings Subtitles, SimplyTweet 3 Adds UI Improvements


Two notable app updates today: Netflix and SimplyTweet 3.

Here’s what’s new with Netflix:

What’s New in Version 1.3

Introducing Subtitles! Now you can follow the action when watching foreign language content, or when listening to the audio is not possible, such as when working out, or in loud environments.

Full support for iOS 4.3.3 and 4.2.8 (Verizon).

Here’s what’s new in SimplyTweet 3:

What’s New in Version 3.5.0

UI improvements and touchups. More to come.

* Improved Swipe menu. 6 buttons, more information, more configurable.
* Less waiting for UI
* Make labels and button icons more consistent across the app
* Added local trends for many more countries
* UI improvements
* Fixed some bugs
* Only support iOS 4 and newer iOS versions from now on
* A little easter egg for the upcoming app

Netflix now adds subtitles, for when you’re in a noisy environment and can’t hear out of your iPhone’s speaker. Great little addition, but so far I have yet to see the option to enable subtitles after installing the update.

SimplyTweet 3 remains my favourite twitter client because of these massive updates all the time. New UI enhancements bring an improved swipe menu with more customizations. Plus, there’s a something extra coming from SimplyTweet, so keep an eye out.

    I just started using Netflix on my iPhone about a week ago, and I must say I was extremely impressed. I thought I was going to have to wait for the buffer like on YouTube sometimes, but to my pleasant surprise it plays within like 3 seconds or less. I love how you can resume from my apple tv at home as well if I want to continue my show while on the road.

    To bad I don’t have one of those 6gb data plans lol I never risk trying over 3G with only 500mb 😛
    Anyways I can’t wait to see what’s all changed ^_^

    I have ‘unlimited’ GPRS data with Fido which works with the Rocket Stick and my 3GS but too bad I am using iOS3.1.2. Netflix won’t work!

    Awe really? Your missing out my friend. I hopes were not as high for
    the app because I figured the quality would be degraded due to it
    being a mobile device. To my surprise it wasn’t, on wifi it’s like
    rivals my apple tv.

    I would opt in for a 6gb data plan, but they want me to toss my great
    retention plan and sign a 3 year again which isn’t going to happen 😛
    I got $35 worth of discounts on my bill and should be paying way more

  •  I love simply tweet 3.. I’ve tried all the other popular twitter apps.. none of them hold a candle to simply tweet.. it’s awesome

  •  what do you mean when you say “a little easter egg for an upcoming app”
