    Netflix on android.

    So I got an email at work saying the netflix app is released for android, they said it works well through the cricket network. I downloaded it on my Optimus C, and I have to say it worked well. I have to wonder how many people are going to use it though, I imagine it will mostly be travelers who use it, maybe the area's around airports will be getting the most of the increased data traffic due to the long waits between flights.

    Which reminds me, I am traveling to Dallas next week for a work paid class! I need to install this on my tablet

    So to spawn some discussion, what are your thought about it?

    I don't have a Netflix account connected right now, but when I did it worked fine (as long as I wasn't throttled). It was so clear too!

    It works great, even on the 3G connection, although I don't really suggest using it off of wifi due to the 1GB cap.

    Thats a good point. I have two phones, my verizon droid I just have since my family likes to keep costs down and the in network calling means they can call me whenever. But even that phone can do 300-500 megs a month just updating apps and very light browsing I am going to use this when I need to, obviously I am not telling people to watch netflix on their cricket phone whenever but it seems like it might fill a niche somewhere.

    To be honest I really wonder about when LTE takes off, since the phone itself it just a data device and voice is just voip. Will the industry still create a dividing line between the uses? In that respect I actually wonder if a company, it may need to be smaller like cricket could just hand off the call processing side of things and just be last mile provider and have a contract with google to terminate calls. Then again I am not a CEO, just a knuckle dragging switch tech

    It doesn't hurt to anonymously forward a suggestion.

    On a drive to florida from st. louis I used my 1g up in 2 days using it almost non stop on the 3g network. It buffers almost every 15 minutes but it only takes a couple seconds. But that was driving through country towns that barely get signal.

    Other than it being a data killer, it's a great app.

    what happens when you hit the 1GB cap? does it just slow down or does it shut down completely?

    You're slowed down. The only way to get cut off completely is to get caught downloading illegal files or tethering.

    I tether all the time and download bootleg movies and have never got caught. Both kill your data allowance.

    Its only a matter of time with pirating. As for tethering it'd be hard to notice
