Netflix is an app for streaming movies and TV shows. The app was released in 2011 and now has almost 200 million active subscribers. Netflix offers both its original content and content from other studios.
Functionality: Great at What It Does 4/5
Netflix does not have a lot of features, though the ones available are working properly. On Netflix, you can stream shows and movies in HDR and 4K, create watch lists, download content, and configure subtitles.
Netflix also has a smart feed of recommendations based on your preferences. The app is also accessible for multiple devices with one account, so you will not have to pay for each family member, for example. All in all, Netflix is great at what it does, as the content is streamed smoothly, the suggestions work greatly, and there is a lot of content available to choose from.
Design: Darkish 4/5
The design of Netflix is very attractive. The app mostly utilizes dark colors for backgrounds and white colors for captions. The movies and shows are presented with posters, while most features are presented with minimalistic icons. The design catches your eye but does not distract you from picking a show or downloading a movie, which is a good sign.
Usability: Your Best Friend 5/5
Netflix app’s usability is almost perfect: the service is extremely user friendly. The process of subscribing is very simple, and then you just gain access to huge amounts of content, and you are free to watch anything you want. Finding a specific show and hitting the play button won’t be an issue for any user, so Netflix is a perfect example of the Plug and Play service, without the necessity to plug anything in.
Cross-platform use: Streaming Anywhere 5/5
Cross-platform is also great in Netflix, as the app is not only available on Android, iOS, and desktop, you can even download it on smart TVs. We have already mentioned that many devices can be used with the same account, so you can switch between your TV and smartphone anytime.
We strongly recommend using Netflix as your main streaming service, as no other platforms offer such an amount of content for such a price. The quality is also a thing, and Netflix runs perfectly on most platforms. Netflix offers a free trial for 30 days, which should leave no questions about giving it a shot.
