Works Perfectly - So Easy & Fast - I downloaded this app as i wanted a standalone netflix app for my mac. it is so much better than using a web browser. The BEST feature is the auto stop and start, which means your movie will automatically pause if you change to another app, such as your email client, and will resume again when you flick back to this app. Definitely a must have purchase for anyone who uses Netflix often!

Review by Simba1PDX

Asks for MS Silverlight to play... - I figured this would be a descent app since the description specifically states this app doesn’t require Microsoft Silverlight to play movies. Upon launching the app, that was the FIRST thing is wanted to install. Well, guess what, the reviews are right…. this app is useless. The Google Chrome browser can play Netfilx just fine, and it doesn’t need Silverlight either. This app needs to be pulled from the store. I bought the original a little while back, and figured the update would have taken care of some things. Guess I was wrong.

Review by Gelz22

Most annoying app ever! - Paid for garbage. When I put whatever I'm watching on pause, I come back to find it is playing and I have to rewind it…. EVERYTIME! While I'm watching shows, the app pauses whatever I'm watching even though I haven’t touched a single button. Then the app will continue to randomly pause throughout my show/movie. The point of this app was to watch with more convenience and to also not have to open the internet. Apparently when you are using the app, that is all you are able to do. You cannot make your window smaller and open up the internet to browse at the same time without it stoping your show/movie altogether. Thought this app would've been great but has been a big annoyance instead. Save yourself some money and just watch Netflix through the actual internet with no interruption.
