    I've noticed some differences in some of the streaming apps between the iPhone and iPad versions. In particular, with Netflix and Slingbox.

    The Netflix app on the iPad works more like the website, while on the iPhone I can only view my queue.

    The updated Slingbox app on the iPad won't work with a Slingbox Classic, while the iPhone version will.

    Has anyone else seen any other differences between comparable apps?

    Good points. I was really annoyed about the Netflix iPhone app. I was hoping to be able to place movies on my queue. Luckily there are other apps for that.

    I am bitter that you can;t use a slingbox classic with the ipad.. Seems like they are doing this just to make people buy more product. I only have a classic.. Now I need to go get a HD Sling Pro? I guess just another toy to start saving up for!

    I still have the iPhone Slingbox app on my iPad. That does let me use the Slingbox Classic that I have in Chicago. Not quite the same quality as the iPad app, nor does it have the same features, but I'm still able to view the SB Classic on the iPad.

    Chris,

    What app do you use on your iPhone to add to your queue for Netflix?
