If there is one company out there you can count on to make sure their products work across all platforms its Amazon.
Today sees the app get updated to the lofty heights of version 2.0 and that bump brings with it more region support as well as bug fixes and speed improvements. Read on past the break to find out more..
The last version of the app (188.8.131.52) was very good anyway but the latest bump has brought with it the addition of “lightning deals”. The ability to scan bar codes has also been surfaced better in the UI and now appears on the Search box. Here is what the update is said to include:-
What’s New in 2.0
- Add items to any of your existing wish lists.
- Additional country support – shop Amazon across 8 countries, including France, Italy, and Spain.
- Bug fixes and performance improvements.
As for anything else hidden in there, there isn’t much more that we are seeing. The app moves along very nicely and this update really looks to just tie up a few loose ends. We are sure that plenty of folks in different regions will appreciate the additional language support in the update.
We’re pleased to see Amazon continuing their support for Windows Phone, they have thus far done good work with their Kindle Reader and they also have their Amazon Fresh app available in the marketplace. This is a company that knows the value of cross platform apps support, even though they have competing devices this seen them holding back any apps.
We’d like to hear from you if there is anything we missed, please sound off in comments below.
