If you are a Netflix user, Upflix is just perfect for you!
Netflix has a
fantastic and huge catalog with, amazing movies and series, and it is easy get
lost in so many possibilities when choosing what to watch. But Upflix has a
solution that will blow your mind and help you surf on Net...
You need this
If you don’t have Upflix you are not using Netflix to you best ability. Everyday I get a notification to see what is new on Netflix. I click, I look, if I like something I go to Netflix and mark it. My que is always filled with stuff I want to see. Without the upflix list I would miss a lot of shows that don’t meet my logarithm criteria. With upflix I can see everything. And it is free. There is one print ad when I open the app. I x it out and done. I have access to everything released. Not sure why you would pay for “no ad”. It is only 1 ad, but whatever. .99 is cheap for no ads I guess. As a rebuttal to other low ratings, this is not an app where I would go searching for something to watch. People are asking for this free app to do so many things. Like I said, it is a list of whatevers new on Netflix that day. Not a search engine to find something to watch.
Get every dollar out of your Netflix subscription!
I just started using this app and it makes it so much easier to pick a movie or show! If you're like me and someone who will spend the length of a film looking for an actual movie to watch this will change the game! PLUS! The categories are so specific (I.E. Blue Collar Stand up Comedy, Zombie Apocalypse Dramas, African American RomComs...) you will be able to quickly find exactly what you need. (And you don't need to spend the $1 on the no ad version. The ads are tiny and no biggie)
Could be very useful if the author fixes a big interface flaw
Netflix’s interface changes during the past few years have made it increasingly hard to tell whether they're recommending videos my wife and I will actually like, or just videos that Netflix wants to promote. Upflix provides a workaround for this by displaying a list of videos available on Netflix along with the ratings from several rating sites (imdb, metacritic, rottentomatoes, flixter). Upflix also provides a way to use those ratings as a filter. In principle, this feature could be greatly useful. The problem - and unfortunately it's a big one - is that there's no way for the user to see a list of the filtered videos! Instead, there is just a "roulette" feature to choose one of them at random. This makes the filter nearly useless.
Great, I use everyday!
This shows every movie, comedy, etc. that is released on Netflix and it shows much more than is shown on the "New Releases" on Netflix. Ease of use is great, easy to add titles to your Netflix queue straight from the Upflix App. I also like that besides descriptions and the cast list, they include ratings from IMDB, rotten tomatoes, etc. The only reason I gave it 4 Stars is that I like some foreign films and subtitles but I wish that you could select which international films/languages you wanted to show up on your daily list. Some days the the list for the day will be a long list and they will all be foreign/international movies from countries that I am not interested in and and sometimes they don't list them as international so you have to watch the trailer to find out.
Much better than expected!
Not bad at all! I really didn't expect much. I was looking for an app that could give me suggestions for new movies to add to "My List" on Netflix. A competing app cost too much relative to ratings and so I continued my search and came upon this. I was pleasantly surprised. It's ability to give you ratings from various outlets is very helpful and its one word distillation description is a plus. It doesn't waste space by merely regurgitating what is available elsewhere. And I was able to add movies to "My List" with ease. On the downside, the type is a little small and it still calls "My List" the "Queue." But this developer issues many releases and I think we can expect that this app will only improve.
Not up to date
It does show new releases, but I didn't check to see how the list compares to other sites that show them to see if this app has everything. However it does also show movies that are no longer on Netflix, making it unusable imo. Also, it only sorts things by Netflix release date once you pick the category you want (of which there are lots) but it could really benefit from being able to sort by the year the show/movie is from or its rating. It does show various ratings for the film besides just netflix's, which is nice, but you basically just have to scroll through and look to find the best rated ones. All in all, I'll stick to instantwatcher instead of letting this take up space on my device.
Works on my iPhone but not my iPad
I’ve had this app for some time now. At first it actually worked on both iPad and iPhone. The only complaint I had then was that sometimes their information was wrong (wrong information for movie with identical or similar name, wrong pictures for certain movies, etc.) Not really that big a thing (to me anyway). Lately, the app won’t work on my iPad. I’ll delete the app, download it again and it will work once. I’ll close the app, open it again and it will ask me for my country, I’ll choose U.S and then it won’t go anywhere from there? Life is too short to let it really upset me, but I think the manufacturer of this app should fix this problem. If you look at the other reviews, I’m not the only one experiencing this.
Forced to Rate Immediately
I downloaded the app, opened it up and started to use it. It crashed. No biggie, I restarted my iPad for a clean slate and then opened the app again. It asked me to rate it. I selected that I would rate it later. I found a title that I wanted to put in my queue, selected that option and the app crashed again. No biggie, I've seen this on other apps and it just takes a few crashes sometimes to work things out. Every time I open the app, it asks me to rate it. I've only opened it 4 times, two times it crashed and it's already asking for a rating. So my initial rating is 1 star. I'll continue using it and hopefully be able to upgrade my star count. My suggestion to the developer is to allow more time before asking for a review. I need a chance to use it before rating it.
App conspires against user
I truly don’t get this app. It seems to conspire against everything we would really want or need in an app such as this. For instance, what if I just wanted a list of the top 10 best sci-fi/fantasy series on Netflix? Doesn’t seem to be able to do this! (A 5-second Google search can). It can’t choose between series and movies. If I tap any of the logos (Netflix, Rotten Tomato’s, etc), it will give me the top rated titles, but not separated by genre, or by movie vs series, so that’s useless to me. If I use the silly roulette wheel (why?!), I can choose the genre, but it only delivers one at a time. Then I need to spin again and it will often deliver the same title a dozen times, or cycle through 2 or 3, and I’ll never get any comprehensive list, or anything I can use. Am I missing something?
This app is genius!
Sometimes it's really hard to find something to watch. This app lets you choose the category and it'll randomly select one for you. Also, it has so many categories to choose from that it's kinda impossible not to find at least one movie you enjoy especially because of the filters you can put to specifically look for a certain type of movie. Five stars!
You know the frase "People who have Netflix spend more looking for a movie to watch than actually watching them"? Well this app came to solve this problem. Simply and easy to use, and what's more accurate in it is the way the categories are divided. I just missed other categories such as 1st and 2nd World War categories separeted from the rest of the War movies, movies suggestions based on the ones I've watched and a space for movie comments from the users! Also, the brazilian catalogue is incomplete!
Good.....if it works
I’ve used Upflix for several months and up until recently would have given it 4 or 5 stars for the ability to see new movies and ratings. It’s great to have that info to make good Netflix selections. The app works great on my iPhone but stopped working on my iPad (although it used to). It wants you to select the country you are in but you can’t actually select one so you cannot go past that screen. Ive uninstalled and reinstalled the app and it works for a while on the iPad. But after a short period of time you are stuck on the country screen again. Frustrating.
Must have app to accompany Netflix!
By far the best app to accompany Netflix. This app helps you navigate all that Netflix has to offer. You can search genres, titles, or even a list of recommended movies and tv shows. It also gives you a daily list of what has been added to Netflix and how long it will be available to play. Truly one of the best and most useful apps available.
When I stumbled across this app, I was excited for a minute. From the description it sounds like a nice app for finding a movie. I was very disappointed at it didn't feel like the app I actually wanted. The only filters are for the genre/topic, there isn't anything life changing about them. There isn't even a filter for the movie ratings. If I wanted to pick through the genre, I can just use Netflix, so what is the point of this app, other than to tell you the ratings from IMDb and rotten tomatoes. I may return to this app in a few years, but right now the idea isn't fully fleshed out. Please add a way to filter by movie ratings, so I can finally filter out R-rated material.
Never fails to find something worth my time!
So many options -- but so many bad movies! This thing does a pretty good job of telling me what I'm jumping into -- more than Netflix itself does. I used this app for nearly 6 months before reviewing it, so I'm not jumping to conclusions here -- the app is well-designed, well maintained (seems to update every time a film is added) and endlessly useful.
