    Anyone know about a Netflix app in the future? I didn't mess around with the preloaded Blockbuster app on the Droid X yet, but from the commercial it looks like their subscription service available right there on your phone. I haven't found an official Netflix app of that nature yet. I'm pretty sure thats because there isn't one.....but I assume that is "there isn't one...yet." I'm not interested in switching to Blockbuster from Netflix just cause they have an app and Netflix doesn't. Anyone hearing anything out there?

    Netflix is definitely working on an Android streaming app, but no word on a release date yet.

    As far as I know, there is no Netflix App. I wish there was.

    Anyone know how to take some of the pre-installed apps off the phone that I will never use? Blockbuster being one of them...

    Not along ago, some of the tech blogs showed that Netflix was looking to hire Android coders. This was announced within the last month. So, 100% Netflix, is coming, possibly several months off though.

    Nothing for Netflix Streaming as of yet but Phone Flicks is an app that will let you search, add to queue, view queue, etc and is very helpful when you're out and think of something you might want to see haha. :)

    Thanks for the comments and replies. Yea, I got phoneflix, it does the trick for what it does thats for sure! I hope Netflix doesn't waste their time with an app if Verizon does in fact move to the tiered data plans. No one would use it!

    Until then (the Netflix app of course, not the tiered data plans), I'll anxiously await!!!

    I've just been using the Netflix website to manage my queue. Works fine. I also would love a Netflix app to actually stream content.

    I heard from some folks that we may be seeing a full-fledged Netflix app for Android soon. So hopefully we'll be able to close this discussion a lot sooner than later!! :)

    netflix

    Netflix is the company developing the app. They have already released an app for the iphone but security issues appear to be at the center of the delayed release of a droid version. Gingerbread has been cited as having increased security over previous versions froyo, eclair, etc...which might be the answer to 'who' might see the app first. Most sites reference "early next year" as the timeframe for the droid app when in actuality this probably means before July...hopefully.
