Instant Queue Add V7 update

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.

[Fixed] IQ+ Problems reading Queue from Netflix

[Update - V7 is now available, with the fix and tested on iOS4]

Something changed in the Netflix API, and some API calls are now failing to go through, while others are working. For IQ+ the effect is that it can't read the queue.

The problem is due to a change in the Netflix API implementation that exposed a bug in IQ+, an updated version has been posted to the AppStore approval process.

Apologies for the inconvenience.

Actors for Netflix on iPad is done

The first version has finally been finished, code posted to Github and app submitted to Apple. http://wiki.github.com/adrianco/Actors-for-Netflix-on-iPad/

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.
