Netflix just updated their app yesterday with two neat things. First is pretty obvious. Netflix now works with the retina display on the new iPad, but the second thing is the best for those who are blind. Netflix adds on their change screen for their update that they have added better support for VoiceOver users. I am not sure what that means, but it sounds like they have made netflix work with VoiceOver again on iDevices. I would love to hear readers thoughts on this or if they have seen it work better now.

Netflix has had an app for the iPad for some time, but one has never been available for the iPhone until now.
Netflix will allow you to add items to your dvd queue, and watch what is in your instant queue.
Voiceover is able to read many parts of netflix, but has a few issues with the navigation bar. You can get Voiceover to read the label text, but it will not read the associated image as being part of the button. Voiceover also will not read past the first page of entries in the Instant Queue section, which is a big let down for Voiceover users. Voiceover only recognises one page of results, and will not scroll down.
Netflix is a great app for iPad and iPhone, but the developers really need to work on some issues dealing with the reading of buttons and the scrolling of pages.
