CineTap Lite is a lite version of CineTap - an alternative UI for Netflix on iPad.

"... amazingly fast and absolutely gorgeous, taking full advantage of the iPad's screen real estate." - TUAW

"Superb layout and design; lacks the annoying slowness of the official Netflix app; easy to rate movies" - Padvance (Score = 4 Must Have)

Designed from the ground up for iPad, CineTap combines an elegant user interface with a high performance implementation. CineTap Lite shares the same great interface and performance, with a core subset of features from CineTap. NOTE: CineTap Lite requires the official Netflix app for movie playback.

CineTap Lite includes the following features:
* UX is designed for iPad from the ground up, taking full advantage of the large screen size. Looks and works great in both Landscape and Portrait modes. Very clean visual interface plus high performance implementation and intelligent content prefetching / caching makes using Netflix on iPad a pleasure.

* Hierarchical structure helps finding titles quickly and provides easy access to a larger portion of Netflix Instant Watch catalog.

* Search the entire Netflix catalog by title, with results presented in the same familiar gallery interface.

* Tap on movie poster to bring up details screen. Details screen includes standard movie metadata such as title, parental rating, star rating, synopsis, cast, director, genres. It also provides easy access to playback and queue management (add/remove instant, DVD, blu-ray, save).

* Details screen feature multiple sub-tabs to provide convenient access to episodes for series / seasons titles and to similar titles of the selected title

* Details screen supports practically unlimited pivot to similar titles and back to help finding movies of interest

* To rate a movie, simply tap on the stars in the detail screen. Details screen also provides bookmark information (minutes watched) for a previously viewed movie or series / seasons episodes.

* Seamlessly invoke the official Netflix application for movie playback and transition back to CineTap Lite when playback concludes.

Features only available in CineTap full version and NOT in CineTap Lite:
* Actors / Directors menu enables easy browsing of movies with actors / directors and biographical information when available.

* Search the entire Netflix catalog by actor / director (in addition to by title)

* Browse movies by over 400 detailed genres and by release year (1940 - now) sorted by user rating.

* Play movie trailer from details screen (via YouTube) - a feature missing even in the official Netflix app!

* Details screen pivot by actors, directors (in addition to by title)

Netflix account requirement:
* Most of the CineTap Lite features are now available to non Netflix members, making CineTap Lite a perfect way to preview on iPad what Netflix has to offer
* Netflix account is required for movie playback, queue access and management, and rating movies. For these features to work, your Netflix subscription plan must include unlimited streaming, and you must login using the primary account and have no more than 6 devices (iPad, TV, Bluray player, PS3, Wii, XBox, Roku, TiVO, etc.) activated for Netflix. As a general rule of thumb: if you can watch movie using the Netflix app on your iPad with your account, then Netflix member only features in CineTap Lite will work with your account.
