Netflix for Windows Phone brings video streaming to Windows Phone, but the experience is slightly different than what you'd find on other mobile versions of Netflix's app and on TV streaming devices. The main screen uses a vertical layout to show your recently watched Netflix titles and recommended videos.

Swiping through the app brings up menus from which to search and browse for content. Here you can browse videos by genre, such as comedy or horror.

Instant Queue is a hallmark feature of Netflix, and it's where you store all the videos you want to watch at some point. In the app you can add any video to your queue by tapping on its name and tapping a button.

Tap a video name to bring up a description and rating, plus actor and director information. TV shows list episodes by season on this page.

When you play a video, you can tap the screen once to show the progress bar and caption options.

If you hold and slide your finger over the progress bar, you can jump back or ahead to different scenes. Just as in other versions of Netflix, the app shows still images of each frame to help you find the right spot.
