I’m constantly looking for new apps to enhance my iPhone or iPad experience. Today I came across a gem designed to make your entertainment apps such as Netflix and Hulu Plus accessible from one app. It’s called Fanhattan and is available for free on Apple’s App Store.
Search for a movie or tv show in Fanhattan and it will bring up various choices for your viewing pleasure. For instance type in “The X Files” and Fanhattan will deliver results in both the movie and tv categories. Click on the tab of which one you would like to watch and you are presented with various options of where you can watch it like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Instant Video. If you select Netflix and have a membership to the service Fanhattan will open the Netflix App and head directly to all 202 episodes of The X Files that Netflix has to offer.
You can also set up a watchlist that allows you to add shows and movies. Fanhattan will send you an alert when it’s available to watch. Once you receive the alert you can watch it immediately or save it for later.
