Kindle Fire and Nook get new Netfix app, iPad gets an IOU

netflixNetflix (Nasdaq: NFLX) has rolled out a new app for Amazon's (Nasdaq: AMZN) Kindle Fire tablet, as well as for Barnes & Noble's Nook, but, GASP!, not for Apple's (Nasdaq: AAPL) iPad 2... at least not yet.

In its blog, the video distribution company Tuesday afternoon said the new design for the Android-based tablets was "much more immersive and provides greater focus on the growing number of titles in the Netflix catalog." The display shows twice as many titles as the old interface, and, the company said, it's "taken greater advantage of the tablet's unique features, inviting you to swipe through rows of titles featuring larger artwork."

iPad fans shouldn't worry too much; their turn with the new app will come. "It's nothing more than a timing issue," wrote Netflix spokesman Steve Swasey in an email. "Netflix is agnostic on platforms--no preferences or priorities." Check out this LA Times article
