Amazon now has an app for you to shop online from your phone. It’s pretty much a mobile version of their website. Everything you see on the homepage has transferred to the software. All the features have remained the same, though the UI looks cluttered at times.
You can access your original account and all its information. Depending on your region, you may have to verify your identity at the initial launch. This can include re-entering your password and doing some security checks. There are no special permissions needed for this app.
Buy anything you can imagine
The interface is compact, but not that simple to use. If you're new to Amazon, you might feel overwhelmed by the amount of details. Every page is full of categories, brands, and suggestions for related items. You don’t see much of the things you’re interested in buying. If you’re only browsing, you’ll end up scrolling forever through endless products.
For those who already have an Amazon account, things are a bit easier. You can access your wish lists and complete purchases that you started on the webpage. The notification setting lets you stay updated on the status of your sales. When you’re shopping, the recommendations will base on the items you have on your wishlist.
Isn’t taxing on your device
The best thing about this app is how little resources it uses. It averages out to about 2% of battery an hour. This depends on how many programs you have in the background, but the difference is not much.
Though wifi is still a better option, you can shop for hours on mobile data. The app comes in a tiny file - less than 200MB - and uses little memory. Despite the lightness, you’ll see a decrease in performance if you run it on older Android.
Auto Detects location and currency
Amazon is flexible when it comes to localization. It detects your country at launch and auto-adjust language and currency. On certain Android models, this will depend on your phone settings and not location. When you access your account from a different region, the settings will not change.
Can gift items to friends
If you enjoy buying stuff online, you can do that on the go with Amazon Shopping. You won’t feel the need to visit the original website anymore. The connection is always stable, and transactions are secure and reliable
You’ll receive regular updates and notifications, so account management is pretty straightforward. If you’ve never shopped with Amazon before, you must give it a try, because you can send gifts to your friends, or Amazon gift codes in addition to buying things for yourself. There’s nothing better and more convenient than this app.
