gGadget > Netflix® Instant Watch Guide, IWGuide, Released for iPad
Earlier this week, an app called IWGuide was released for iPad owners to download for free from the App Store. IWGuide lets you know when new content is added to the Netflix Instant Watch collection of movies and TV shows. It also keeps you informed of content that will be arriving to the Netflix instant service soon. Additionally, IWGuide lets you know as soon as Netflix takes down a movie or TV show from their collection of instant content offerings.
Netflix Instant Watch content is often a mixed bag. On the one hand, it gives you access to a lot of great TV shows from networks like Showtime, and it gives you access to some pretty incredible independent movies and insightful documentaries. On the other hand, it offers a pretty big selection of B movies and low-quality, canceled TV shows.
It only takes about six months of regular viewing to watch all of the good stuff Netflix offers in terms of instant content. Then you might have to take a month hiatus from your Netflix instant queue to give Netflix some time to upload some more good stuff. With IWGuide, you’ll know as soon as something you’re interested in is uploaded. If you have trouble keeping up with the best movies on Netflix Instant as they’re added, this is the app for you.
As previously mentioned, IWGuide is only available for iPad. Hopefully, the developers of this app will offer it to more devices soon, so we can all keep up with additions to the assortment of Netflix instant streaming videos.
