Amazon Mobile app gets small update, a little fine tuning under the hood

The Amazon Mobile app received a minor update today. Unlike the previous update in May, this bump offers little, other than unnamed bug fixes and performance updates. Amazon was one of the first big retailers to put out a Windows Phone app and it remains one of the best out there.

Amazon Mobile will not only let you surf the aisles of Amazon.com, place orders, check on your account, and more.  We've come to find that the Amazon Mobile app is also a great app to have handy while shopping to compare prices.  It even has a bar code scanner to make searching for products a little easier.  If you're looking for something that you can wait for the UPS man to deliver, it might save you a few bucks along the way.

If you haven't tried it by now, you really should check it out here for free here in the Windows Phone Store.

Shazam and Nokia NFC Writer also got an update, where is the news?

Wish they would update Windows 8 Shazam. You cant delete tagged songs! You end up with 80 songs and cant delete any of them! Emailed them twice and they blew me off. Real nice.

Wish they would update their windows 8 app.

I totally agree. It's worse than going to amazon.com.

Agree, WP8 one is so much better.

RobbCab says:

what they reaLly need to do is add Amazon Instant Video to the app. Or make a dedicated one.

So much yes.  And their music cloud player app.  Please. 

DaveGx says:

Not much of an update until we have filters.

willied says:

This app is okay, but it definitely needs some work. It's not quite functional enough.

EBynum says:

When will they ever release an Amazon MP3 app for Windows Phone? Android has it.

Laura Knotek says:

That's what I'd love to see. I'd use an Amazon Cloud Player app, since I buy almost all my music from Amazon.

lunged says:

Yes, still waiting for the cloud player app....

An app for Amazon MP3
is what I would like to see
it would make me say tee-hee!

fbendotti says:

Needs better filters. Ability to reorder would be great

I use this app all the time. Its even pinned just for easy access. If I ever see something on amazon as I am casually shopping on my PC I go to the app to buy. Just to make sure there is traffic from the app. I don't know if its actually doing anything, but I want to.

It feels faster to me.

Link not working

They need to optimize their Windows 8 app. Kinda sluggish.
