The iPhone version of Netflix came a lot later than the iPad version that was available at that device’s launch in April, but it’s equally welcome. The free app is now Universal, so you only have to download it once. A Netflix account is required; the cheapest is the one-DVD-at-a-time plan for $8.99/month. But that includes unlimited Instant Watch streaming to your computer’s web browser, a variety of TV-attached devices, and this app.
