    Only Snapdragon based phones. And you can only manage instant queue unless I'm missing something

    It is only available through the market for a few phones, but if you Google search you should be able to find it pretty easily elsewhere.

    What do you have? Might not be compatible yet. I have the incredible 2 and it grays it out in the list for me. My wifes incredible 1 is listed ok.

    I have a Droid X

    EDIT: Just googled it and tried the barcode and it said the app didnt exist. Unfortunate.

    You have to be rooted and you have to hack a file to make it work.

    Yes, you have to be rooted. I just assumed everyone was. :)

    You only have to hack the file depending on your phone, I didn't have to hack the file. It seems to work on Droid X and Droid 2.

    Incredible 2 doesnt have a solid root yet, so Im not trying it. My DInc 1 is rooted but NF already works on that. The hack is annoying, come on netflix, get with it. I need to watch movies at work.
