Editors' Review

by   / December 20, 2017

The Amazon - Shopping made easy app for iPhone enables you to browse, search, and order millions of affordable products directly from your phone or tablet.


Access to millions of affordable products: The Amazon app brings millions of affordable products from around the world to the palm of your hand. Browse the Deal of the Day or curated collections of products, such as toys or electronics, from the home page. Or explore departments as diverse as Beauty and Pet Supplies. Alternatively, if you know what you're looking for, then you can search for specific products directly.

Multiple ways to shop: You can search (and price match) items by typing in the search field on your homepage or tapping the camera icon on the top right to scan a product barcode (if you have one handy) or taking a photograph of the item you covet. You can also have Alexa do it for you.

Detailed product information: Tap any item you're considering to browse detailed descriptions, features and details, and customer reviews. You can also get recommendations for companion products. For example, a Seattle Seahawks T-shirt would go well with a Seahawks knit cap. If you end up deciding against the item, then Amazon offers plenty of related products to choose from.

Integrates with Alexa for hands-free shopping: Tap the mic icon on the top right of the homepage to turn on your microphone and shop with Amazon's voice assistant, Alexa. With Alexa, you can search today's deals, entire departments, or specific products; order and reorder items; add items to your cart; and even track packages.

AR View: Tap the camera icon and then AR View to browse and preview items in augmented reality. Point your camera at a flat surface, tap your screen to place your product, and then use one finger to move it and two to rotate it, so you'll know how that new sofa will look on your living room floor, for example.

Wish lists and registries: Easily create your own wish list or wedding or baby registries or search for recipients' over the Amazon app.

1-Click Settings: 1-click purchasing enables you to buy without having to provide your delivery address and payment settings each time you buy.

Secure payments: Amazon claims that its secure servers protect your personal and financial information, so you can shop without worrying about cybercrime.

Package X-Ray: Tap the camera icon to scan your white shipping label and you'll instantly know what's inside that mysterious package that just showed up -- without having to open it first.


A lot of permissions to grant: To enable features, such as voice shopping, shipping notifications, visual search, customer reviews, and authentication as well as improve its services, the Amazon - Shopping made easy app will need access to your contacts, camera, microphone, notifications, Touch ID, photos, and Bluetooth.

Bottom Line

The Amazon - Shopping made easy app lives up to its name, bringing you millions of products to shop with ease. Innovative features, such as Alexa integration, AR View, and Package X-Ray make Amazon's shopping app a hard one to match.
