|The Amazon Windowshop has each|
department in a separate column
Written specifically for the iPad, this free app flawlessly delivers the complete Amazon store in a presentation that is fluid and makes it easy to navigate.
Product reviews are present, with full product details, the ability to track open orders; in fact, the ability to manage your account, are all there.
If you select a DVD, the trailer, if present, will automatically play.
If you select an album or single track, the preview will automatically play.
The 'look inside' functionality, for books, isn't included, but I'm not sure what benefit there is in that anyway. It's also not possible to buy MP3 downloads or Kindle books (although the app does link directly to the Amazon website to complete your purchase).
|Trailers automatically play|
|All the information and ability to buy|
is presented easily and neatly
In the left-hand margin, there are tabs to select Photos, Details, Reviews and Related items.
On the right, it's the sales bar - touch to either 'Add to Basket', 'Buy Now' (using One-Click) or 'Pre-Order'. If you want, you can add to your Wish List; there's even a Share button, where you can email the link, or post on Facebook or Twitter (those social apps are everywhere!!)
Some may think the main screens looks cluttered, but, if you notice that each column is a department, or a sub-department, then it's really quite easy to navigate.
I've only scratched the surface of what its all about. The best way to find out more is to download it.
Personally, I think it's a wonderful experience, and yet another way in which the iPad is being used to its full advantage.
