The Much Awaited Amazon App is now in the Store!

At last! The Amazon App is now in the Windows Store! Wow, the really took their time coming. EBay and Newegg have been rocking the Store since Jove knows when, now Amazon joins the hustle. As you can see the App already garnered 98 ratings at almost 4 Stars. I wonder who are those people who rated it, as those are not the public, the App is just out! Probably those are Microsoft internal users and testers who were testing for Microsoft and Amazon as they need to get this right the first time.

I have just installed the App, I just simply said Wow! when I first opened it. It is beautiful, it is comprehensive, to use my favorite term, it comes with kitchen and sink. Yes, it is worth the wait.

Once you login, the App lights up with your history and purchases, there are recommendations for you based on your search and buy pattern, they have columns for everything that might interest you. Can’t place screenshots here else you’ll be privy to my weird collections of Barbie pops Smile. But seriously, you’ll have to see this App for yourselves. Here is how Amazon (or is it MS, wink wink, nudge nudge) described it from the Store:

I can tell you for fact right now that these screenshots didn’t do justice to the App. You need to download it and login to see the App light-up with your Amazon universe. So what are you waiting for, it doesn’t cost you a dime. So go right ahead and download via the Source link.

P.S. You didn’t think for once that the Barbie pop collection joke was true did you? Smile

  1. I was somewhat disappointed that it reaches to the web for a lot of function opening up IE browser windows instead of doing the work in the app. Lots of potential and it is good to see another big name get in the store however, would like to see this be more contained within the app if you know what I mean.

    • Yep, agreed with you, finishing some of the Transactions in the browser is undesirable. But I am sure we will eventually get there. If you remember, the eBay app was also PoS when it was released, you have to do 75% in the browser and it got a terrible rating because of that. But they released a number of version after that and now it is rock solid.
      Obviously, the more activities a vendor process, the more its app have to do resulting in a complex app.
