Your eyes are the window to the world. They take in a lot of visual noise from working on your desktop to using your mobile device. You can't wait to plop on the couch and finish the last season of The Office, only to find more visual noise and clutter using the original Netflix app. You might only browse for a few seconds, but it's enough to give you an eyesore. This redesigned concept introduces negative space, a softer and minimalistic design, and easily obtainable content for a better and pleasant viewing experience.
Typography & Colors
Profiles are a great way to have a customized experience. From here you can view your notifications, view your recently watched shows, check out your downloaded episodes and movies, enable parental controls and adjust accessibility options, review your app usage statistics, and define what kind of content you like to see more. You can also personalize your welcome screen and focus more on what you want. Want less? Want more? Go for it! The app is your oyster.
A House of Cards
Cards are fun! From baseball to Pokémon Cards. Who doesn't like cards? Cards allow for a visually appealing and organized way of sectioning or separating content. It's clean, easier to read, and just overall cool looking, because cards are still cool, right? It would be a cardinal sin not to use it.
A Clean Slate
Of course there's a tablet version. Much clean. Very white space. So minimalist. Wow, such WOW! The tablet version removes all the clutter and focuses on getting to what you want quicker. You can be viewing your "Continue Watching" list and in one swipe motion end up in "Popular on Netflix" or "Call Girl Documentaries Just For You" based on your watch history. Don't worry, you can always clear your history and no one will ever know. The eyes need to rest at moments as you browse and look for that favorite series to binge on, or that show Skyler from accounting recommended, but let's be honest; you just want something in common to talk about before she's off to the next Netflix Original, while you are still sadly and pathetically talking about the first episode of Stranger Things.
You can also swipe right and hope for a matc...Er...wrong app. Swipe right to gain easy access to the app's main menu. Browse a clutterless Netflix effortlessly and without distraction. Afterall, the focus is on content. Not clutter.
Ever had an argument with your significant other on what actor played Lt. Archie Hicox in Inglourious Basterds? Was it the guy from Game of Thrones? No, no, it was the guy who played Two-Face from the Dark Knight. Wrong! It was Michael Fassbender! Duh.
