Amazon Mobile app for Windows Phone gets UK and Germany support in latest update

Amazon now for the UK too

We do love our Amazon Mobile app for Windows Phone--beautiful, useful and well designed the app is one of our must-haves (especially since we have Prime). However, we do get a lot of complaints about it, specifically its lack of support for the UK market (and others).

Version 1.8 just went live in the Marketplace today and support for the UK and Germany is now included (in addition to un-named bug fixes). Our own Rich Edmonds verified that the app is working there which should make many of you finally pleased. This update follows a previous one just weeks ago which added social features to the popular app.

Amazon Mobile gives you access to Amazon.com's vast array of goods from their location as well as 3rd party retailers. Allowing 1-click purchasing and a nice bar-code scanner, the app allows you to comparison shop when you're out in a brick-and-mortar store. In addition, you can access your account and track your orders.

Since the app is "new" to the recently added Marketplaces you can't search for it just yet. No worries as you can just use our download link to get it now. Thanks, Ben D., for the tip

Wish the WinPhone Amazon app would let us purchase Amazon Instant Video. Then it would be a great companion to the Xbox 360 Amazon Instant Video app.

I wondered for a long time when they would finally make it available. It was one of the most important apps that were still missing. :-)

I knew it would be available soon.

Add amazon.ca please.... App still not available in Canada, even though I can and have purchased from amazon.ca, amazon.com and amazon.co.uk

Bernard Wei says:

Just want to add that I purchased on their website and have them shipped to Canada.

Stupid piece of junk still doesn't support App-Connect. (like every Mango/7.5 preview said it "should") I don't need another bar code scanner; I've already got one built-in to Bing!

I've tried to contact their dev team, but have no faith that my comments are getting to the right people. (Maybe WP Central can help them understand what a big oversight this is.??)
