Small (But Notable) App Updates: Netflix, Rdio, Puffin Web Browser … (and More!)

As Apple’s digital content stores kick back into full gear, there are a number of small (but notable) app updates which have surfaced this week that we think you should know about.

Details after the fold.


First up, Netflix. The TV and movie streaming service notes that it is “always improving” its official iOS client to make it both “easier and better” to use. In Netflix 2.4.4, “bug fixes” are king.

Version: 5.2.1

The official client of music streaming service Rdio has also received an update this week. The new update now allows you to search for your favourite music even when you don’t have an internet connection, further allowing to find music you have previously synced to the mobile client.

Other additions to the client include fixes for an issue that could cause the app to rapidly switch between online and offline modes, as well as improved stability.

Version: 2.5.8
