Netflix has revamped the design of its iOS app as part of a new update.
Now, the app sports a billboard layout that moves along with your device, new launch animations, wallpaper gradients, updated haptics and more.
The ‘Info’ tab at the bottom of cards (the shapes that display each Netflix title) has also been removed. Instead, users can click on the card to bring them to a separate page for the show or movie in question.
On Twitter, Janum Trivedi, a former UI designer for Netflix who worked on the update, shared a bit more insight. He says the update has been in the works over the past year and has been designed “to make Netflix feel more fluid, delightful and polished.”

This last year, I’ve been leading a UI refresh to make Netflix feel more fluid, delightful, and polished.
Today, all that work shipped!
