Netflix is shuttering its public API today, effectively ending support for a number of third-party apps that made use of the API to get TV and movie show titles as well as other data from the streaming service.

My question is: What third-party apps?

Searching on the AppStore using the keyword “Netflix” shows the official app and bunch of poorly designed apps that no one seems to care about much.

Also take a look at the chart made by Daniel Jacobson, VP of Edge Engineering at Netflix, it really show that no one actually uses the public API that Netflix has provided for a long time, 11 years ago.
