The Netflix library is one of the most complete in the world and the fact that you have the ability to tap into it from your iPhone, as long as you have an account, is beyond remarkable. With this Netflix marks a major step forward in what is possible for the iPhone and the type of media functions the iPhone will be known for. If you have Netflix you must utilize this iPhone application, and if you do not yet then this is just going to stand as another reason to join the service.
