Padvance Report: Netflix Updated, iOS 4.3 Arrives, and iPad 2 Lands

In the wake of last week’s announcement of the next iPad iteration, the Apple faithful have been eagerly preparing for launch date, which will be upon us by the time you read this. Join us in today’s Padvance Report for a look back on this week’s tablet and app update news.

Netflix Upgrades its App

The week started off modestly, with news that Netflix updated its app to allow for a more intuitive UI, as well as speed and performance improvements. To sweeten the deal, current users don’t have to re-download the app, as the changes have all been made server-side. Read our report on the matter here.

iOS 4.3 is Here

This week, we were surprised to find that iOS 4.3 arrived early, hot on the heels of the iPad 2 announcement, and days before the new tablet’s actual release. Check out our coverage here.

GarageBand and iMovie for iPad Arrive

Apple’s much-ballyhooed marquee apps, GarageBand and iMovie have landed in the App Store. Our initial impressions mark both as a steal at $4.99 a piece. Check back for our full reviews in the coming days.
