1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time November 17, 2011
Verified Purchase
This app is not "available instantly". You laboriously peck your email address into the little box, and then you wait, and wait, and wait for the email. Why not just put it in the regular Android App Market? That really IS instant. Why try to force users to jump through some long idiotic series of arbitrary hoops?

Well, I waited, made the stupid video on this page go away (twice), and jumped through all the completely unnecessary hoops to get it to install, and finally discovered: This isn't the Amazon Mobile app at all! It's the Amazon App Store app. What?! Seriously, it's the wrong app! What a pain. All that hassle, and they can't even give you the right download file. The idea is that they make you go through an extremely painful process to download a completely different app, which you can then use to download the one you actually want. Apparently, that's explained somewhere in the moronic chirpy video or in the depths of the fine print somewhere. Well, end users can't be trusted to care about your vanity as much as you do. Tell them what they need to know clearly and simply, immediately and upfront. I've been writing software quite a few years now, and every time some idiot says "Hey, don't worry about it, we can just force the user to read five pages of text and do something incredibly inconvenient!", the next thing you know the customers are all emailing you about how your software doesn't work. Why? Because YOU are paid a fat salary to make your software work, and THEY are the ones paying you.

I can't believe this, it's like a bad joke. Android has a nearly flawless software distribution model, and somehow these guys made it ten times as hard for the user, and then broke it. Why? Why do you do that to your customers? Hard to figure.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome App May 8, 2011
Verified Purchase
This is a must have app if you frequently shop on Amazon. It runs really smooth on my evo, makes shopping on amazon a breeze. Much easier to use than a mobile web browser to view the web page on your phone. I use it frequently when I am out shopping and want to check prices and reviews. Amazon is almost always cheaper than local stores, so its an easy way to save money.

Ordering items through the app is very easy. I have completed the process several times and had no errors or order problems.

The one problem I have with this app is the bar code scanner. I can almost never get bar code scanners to work and this app is no different. I often feel like an idiot standing in a store trying to get this app to read a bar code. On the flip side, the app almost always finds the item I am looking for when I search via keyword search or texting a picture.

2.0 out of 5 stars huge disappointment May 14, 2011
By A Customer

I like using but this app pales in comparison. There are no filters for searches. Yes, you can choose a department, but that is the least useful filter. Searching by price, size, discounts... along with all the other filters available on the site would make this app much better. UNINSTALLED.

1.0 out of 5 stars disappointment March 27, 2011
I had an older version of this app and just did the update. I wish I had not updated. I am an Amazon seller and this download does not work for barcode scanning multiple books. It was a great tool, and now it is awful. I will probably remove it since it is now useless for me. Somehow Amazon managed to take something that worked well, and ruined it. It maybe ok to the average consumer, but amazon has hurt their independent sellers that are just starting out and can't afford 3rd party scanners

3.0 out of 5 stars The last version was better! April 2, 2011
The newest version does not allow you to search for an item by taking a picture - only by bar code. Most of the time that's fine, but sometimes there isn't a bar code available. Also, the earlier versions would buzz the phone when an item that you were searching for was found. This was a really useful feature because you could go on browsing through other items while Amazon was searching and bringing up the product page. How do I get back to the older version?

1.0 out of 5 stars wasted time April 17, 2011
By jcawd
Once again amazon makes you jump through hoops, fill out card details and then tells you you can't download due to geographical restriction (Australia). I can download from the android market but not from amazon, join the 21st century and let any one down load from anywhere or at least advise people that they can't use it unless they live in the US. Would have given it zero stars but it wont let me.

2.0 out of 5 stars needs work April 16, 2011
as a seller on I use my Xoom to look up books' value and sales rank when I shop for books. this app allows me to scan barcodes just fine but crashes EVERY TIME I try to get to the 'used items' section which makes this app worthless to me. have contacted amazon to no avail.

3.0 out of 5 stars C'MON amazon! March 25, 2011
It does a decent job with just searching, so props for that..I guess. It's ok for price comparing, but there are apps that do just that better. Lacks a lot of the convenience amazon is known for. Can't really just browse, which for an app, thats exactly what i'd actually want to do. As other guy mentioned, the permissions this app asks for, a little strange. With that and the overall experience this app feels more like bloatware, something that verizon would stick on a phone, than a clean app that makes my life easier. Lot of potential in a good amazon app, so I hope they put more time into this.

Yes, I'd also like to know why there is no Amazon Deals app for Android. And I haven't been able to find the Gold Box on this app, so it's really bad. I have to rely on my text messages sent through Twitter when a new GB deal starts.
