About this app

With the Amazon app for Android tablets you can easily search across Amazon’s catalog of millions of products to quickly find what you are looking for, browse and shop by department, and check out lightning deals and deals of the day. Product detail pages provide useful product information and allow you to read and write product reviews or share products with friends.

Enjoy features built especially for tablets, including a fun new way to set aside items – press and hold on any product image and fling it to the bottom of the screen. The items are saved in a tray that is available to you throughout the entire app, making it easy for you to get to your set aside items with one tap.

All purchases made on the Amazon app for Android Tablets are routed through Amazon's secure servers just as they are on the web. And just like the web experience, Android app customers enjoy the same functionalities of the Amazon Shopping Cart, Wish Lists, order history, payment and Amazon Prime member shipping options, and 1-Click settings. Customers are able to shop any of Amazon's sites around the world from a single app.

** The current release supports Android tablets that are 7" to 10" with resolutions from 600x1024 to 1600x2560.

On Android devices with GPS, we access location information only so that we can provide customers with the option to send packages to a nearby Amazon Locker (a feature only available in the US and UK currently). On Android devices with both WiFi and cellular radios, we access the phone only to determine which radio to use depending on the strength of signal. On WiFi only products, this permission isn't applicable, but Android's security model requires us to ask on all installations. In order to securely send and receive push notifications on your device (should you choose to do so), we need to use the following permissions: "Receive data from Internet" and "Prevent tablet from sleeping". We require “Read Contacts” permission to make it easier for you to find and invite friends from your phone address book.

* Microphone access: search Amazon catalogue of products using your voice.

* Install Shortcut & Read Settings: Used to create a shortcut icon for Amazon Cash if customers choose to have one.

The last two or three updates have been shutting the app down in the middle of reading. I have the time and how long left to read on the pages, but every time I shut down and restart my tablet they disappear and I have to put them back on each time. This is really annoying, how am I supposed to enjoy my book when this mess keeps happening. Y'all need to find tester before sending out updates

Was always great. Suddenly they changed it. Ok look, but the most important feature has disappeared. There is no longer a shopping cart? You click the cart button, and it's just search results? I imagine that it's a bug, but seriously? A shopping app gets rolled out without a cart or checkout? What a disastrous example of QA/QC. So unexpected for the biggest company in the world. Maybe it's better on the Apple (as so many products are more geared towards Apple than Samsung/Microsoft

I can't use this app because "Sorry, there's a problem with this page right now. We're working on fixing it." A quick Google reveals the problem dates back more than five years. No other app does this, and it's possibly due to the way the app implements the android webview component. It even happens after formatting the entire device via a manufacturer's reset, setting it up from scratch and reinstalling the app. At this point I think it's safe to say that Amazon technicians are not "working on fixing it," at all. Presumably they have decided that researching and rectifying this problem (which clearly affects many end users) is not important.
