A change to the OData back end fixed an issues with Actors for Netflix. Previously only the first 20 movies were shown for each actor, the default for that query is now 500, which is enough that all movies are now shown for all actors. No change was needed to the application.
Next steps for this app are to add advanced search and save lists of favorite actors and movies. The advanced search feature will be shared with Instant Queue Add for Netflix as well.
Apple approved V7 a few days ago, with iOS4 support, and more than 10,000 updates have happened in the first few days. Some glitches in the Netflix API on Monday prevented apps from authorizing, and this broke IQ+, and caused some one-star bad reviews.
The iPad compatible update for IQ+ is going to be a major re-write. There are a few simple changes to Actors for Netflix that will probably get done first.
It took a lot longer than expected due to other distractions, and as a first release, it doesn't have all the features that we would like, but it is fun to use, and I learned several new techniques that will now be applied to the next version of Instant Queue Add for Netflix.
Instant Queue Add for Netflix was developed as a spare-time activity, and is not endorsed by Netflix Inc. However I do work for Netflix and helped debug the Netflix API using this code. I am sharing the basic code required to talk to Netflix from an iPhone on my Millicomputing blog.
