Netflix has just updated its free iOS app and improved its iPad interface, MacRumors reports.

The news doesn’t come as a surprise, as Netflix had anticipated it would soon update its universal app, compatible with both iPads and iPhones.

As mentioned, the app is now available in Latin America, where Netflix has been working on making its service available across multiple devices (see our previous post). Besides iOS devices, the service is now available on XBox 360 consoles and Android phones and tablets across the region.
