Over the past few years, Amazon has become the go-to website for almost all online shopping. They carry everything from diapers and toys to jewelry and computers. The majority of the time Amazon also offers some of the lowest prices plus free shipping on many orders. Now there is even an iPhone app for people to shop from Amazon while on the go.
There are several different key features to the app. The first is the ability to search for an item and purchase it directly from Amazon using any stored payment option. Of course, all purchases that are made through the app are over a secured network, so all payment and personal information is encrypted and protected. One is also able to search for an item and save it to their wish list or simply put it in their online shopping cart to purchase it at a later time. This is a great way to remind yourself of a book you want to buy or a DVD that you would like to watch.
Another feature of the Amazon iPhone app is that it can scan the bar code of an item and show what the same item costs from sellers on Amazon. This eliminates the hassle of looking up a price online and trying to remember what it was when actually in the store. Using this method of price comparison will only take seconds, but can actually end up saving the consumer a significant amount of money.
A third feature of this app is called Amazon Remembers. This is a very nifty function that utilizes a picture to search for the same or similar products that are offered for sale on Amazon. For instance, if one would see something like a chair or table that they want, simply snap a picture in the Amazon Remembers section of the app. It will store the actual picture for later reference and any items that it thinks are similar to the pictured item. This is great for when you are not sure of the brand or manufacturer of an item, but would like to know more.
This app also includes many of the same things that the regular Amazon website features like the Deal of the Day, Our Best Deals, Lightning Deals, and recommendations for you based on recent shopping habits. You are also able to view wishlists and registries of other people through this app. The One-Click shopping method can also be activated on this app.
The only major downside of using the Amazon app is that purchasing digital content like movies, music and ebooks are not supported. The app does allow these items to be added to a wishlist, but the actual purchase must be completed on a computer.
Overall, the Amazon for iPhone app (which is also supported on the iPad and iPod Touch) is a great complement to the Amazon website. It can make online shopping easier, faster, and can also help save money.
