Netflix is reportedly developing an official iPhone app that could further change the way we watch movies. While there are 3rd party apps that allow you to manage your queue already, this official version according to Multichannel News will also offer the Watch Instantly feature as well.

It’s just a matter of time before (legally) downloading movies becomes the mainstream way to watch, and by offering services on portable devices as well as XBox 360 and other internet connected devices, the king of the hill is working on keeping the crown. This app just might be the one that pushes me to get in on an iPhone.
