You can't believe the amount of time I spent pondering whether to subscribe to Apple Music or not. Must've been many hours, though spread out over the whole three months trial; I'm not daft. Yet perhaps because I've become more decisive, perhaps because Netflix is more compelling, or perhaps because I just carried over all that pondering. For when it came time to make my choice and pay for Netflix or give it up, I didn't hesitate -- and I've now been using it for a quarter of the year.
Usually you can't readily separate Netflix, the service, from Netflix, the apps that you use to watch it on but we can now because only one of those has changed. The service is as it was, give or take various films and shows that it's gained and lost rights for, but the iOS app is now Netflix 8.0.0 and the improvements since the last version could've been made specifically to address our criticisms of how it works on the iPad Pro.
Netflix doesn't hang about with updates to its iOS software, but it also doesn't add a great deal: the new Netflix 7.2.5 app for iPhone and iPad is a bug-fix release. We were hoping it would improve how the service looks on iPad Pro, and we were half-expecting it to support iOS 9's picture-in-picture feature, but neither has happened. Nonetheless, it's a good app with access to a ridiculously great number of films and TV shows to watch.
