Netflix has brought one of the cooler features from its full-screen experience to mobile devices. Starting with its iOS lineup (and eventually coming to Android), a new section at the top of the app features 30-second previews of shows.

Says Netflix:

Each preview is about 30 seconds long and presented in a vertical format, so you can watch them without turning your phone. The previews are shown like a slideshow, so if you see something you like, you can tap play or add to your list. If not, you can swipe or tap the screen to advance to the next preview.

It's not a bad little experience, though it's also not of the same quality you'll get when you're actually watching said show. But what the hell — it's a nearly infinite world of streaming video in your pocket.
