    Netflix Update on the iPad (3rd Gen) >> now HBO Go issue

    I have been holding off on the Netflix update for weeks now since I've been reading so-so reviews regarding the update. I know those reviews cover all iPad generations plus the iPhones.

    Has anybody here updated their 3 yet with good results? I'm specifically concerned on the constant crashing I've read about AND the "logging in" every time you use Netflix.

    Is it just that one time after updating or is it every time you want to use Netflix?

    I have the latest Netflix version and everything works smoothly. Do not have to sign in unless there is an update. I give this app four stars!

    Thanks all! I have updated my Netflix app :)

    I wish the same could be said with the HBO Go and the Max Go apps. Bad reviews all around for their latest update. It looks like they *require* you to have a Twitter account whether you have one or not :mad:, according to the reviews. I'll hold off on these ones unless you guys know something else.

    I have both of these apps and they don't require to you have a twitter account. I'm logged into to HBO Go right this moment and I didn't have to give them anything but my username, password, and zip code, after I told them which company provides my cable service.

    Have you installed the latest update (April 30)? The reviews say otherwise...

    I update all apps when they become available. I can't help what the reviews say....I've had these apps since they first because available and they aren't forcing twitter on folks....it doesn't even make sense for them to do that.
