Inky Software has released a new version of their Windows software to enhance the online DVD rental experience with powerful features. Netflixter version 1.2 allows subscribers of the Netflix rental service to manage and track their rental queues quickly and efficiently with features not found through the web site interface.
"I'm hooked on online DVD rentals, but as my queue grew to more than 100 DVDs, I saw the need for standalone software for rearranging and tracking my DVD rentals," said software developer, Kristen Alaimo.
Alaimo explained that the software adds features not found on the Netflix web site. Users can rearrange their queues through drag and drop, or they can shuffle their entire queue with a single mouse click. They can sort their DVDs by title, MPAA rating, genre, or availability. Information on each DVD is cached, so movie summaries are available quickly.
"But possibly the most impressive feature is the added ability to track your service performance," said Alaimo. The user's entire rental history is saved and analyzed. Users will now know at a glance if a DVD is late or lost. Easy to read graphs report monthly shipping and turnaround times. Users can now make a more informed decision about which service plan is best for them. Users have the ability to personally track their own shipping and receiving dates to get an idea of their turnaround performance.
"It's important to note that none of the main web site features have been forgotten in Netflixter," added Alaimo, "You can still rate your movies, view your friendsÂ ratings, recommend movies to friends, search for new movies, and use multiple profiles from one account. The software can be used as a total web site replacement or a handy companion to complement the Netflix site."
Netflixter works on Windows 98/ME/NT/2000/XP. The software can be downloaded from http://www.inkysoftware.com/netflixter.html and includes a free 14-day trial of the Netflix DVD rental service for new members.
Inky Software is not affiliated with Netflix. Netflixter is a 3rd party application developed by Inky Software.
