In addition to iOS as a universal application, IWGuide for Netflix has been released for Android devices a few weeks ago.

We are terribly sorry, but IWGuide version 1.2 has a bug that crash the application when you try to view a movie detail. The problem is due to a change last minute and unfortunately our testing missed it.
A new version: 1.2.1 has been submitted to the AppStore review and we have requested an expedited review. If the expedited review is approved, version 1.2.1 should hopefully appear on the AppStore a couple hours after the approval of that process.
Unfortunately there is no workaround for the problem, we sincerely apologize for the problem.
It was kind of fast! IWGuide 1.2 has been approved by the Apple App Review team and it should appear soon on the AppStore (free iPad application).
Beside the minor bug fixes in this version, IWGuide 1.2 now support the Retina display for the new iPad (new iPad / iPad 2012), and additionally IWGuide will add a visual indicator to movies that are newly listed in the latest issue of IWGuide.
The visual indicator for a newly listed movie looks like below:

A quick update regarding IWGuide. A newer version has been submitted late last week for review to the AppStore team.
Beside the usual bug fixes, a new convenient feature has been added: movies that are new in the current issue of IWGuide will appear with a little badge over the movie poster.
Here is an example:
When that blue corner triangle is shown it indicates the movie was not listed in the previous IWGuide issue. This is a really convenient way to quickly see what Netflix did change in their catalog between two IWGuide issues.
If everything goes as expected, version 1.2 should appear in the AppStore toward the end of the week.
Yesterday IWGuide for Netflix has been reviewed by the site MacObserver.com. You can read the review “IWGuide for Netflix: What’s Coming & Going” by David Winograd at http://www.macobserver.com/tmo/review/iwguide_for_netflix_whats_coming_and_going/.
Overall the review is honest and point out the benefits of IWGuide for Netflix. The author of the review correctly mention the incorrect data reported by IWGuide regarding the movie definition HD/SD but unfortunately that information is being provided by Netflix web service API. So until Netflix fixes their incorrect data, there is not much that IWGuide for Netflix could do.
Earlier this morning a new version of IWGuide has been approved on the AppStore.
The new version has the following new features:
- improved information for the following category: coming soon, going away. Instead of simply showing the date for the title, IWGuide will now show the number of days until the movie arrive or until the movie goes away. It make it a lot easier to know what great title is coming or when to watch a movie that will be going away.
- the startup screen will now show a small cover (like a magazine) of the main top movies, and it will show how many movies are available in each category
- the startup wizard has been improved too
- various bugs have been eliminated
