Abby’s Apps: Amazon

Review of Amazons' iOS App & Wish Lists| Abby's Apps at #31Days

Title: Amazon

Cost: Free for iOS and Android, and Windows Phones

What It Does: Almost anything that you can do on the Amazon site, except for downloading or streaming purchases.

What I Like: It is handy to be able to look up books by a certain author when I cannot remember a title or to add things to my wish list. When necessary, I can also make purchases directly through the app.

Side Note on Wish Lists: My family is spread across the state so we have embraced the Amazon Wish List feature as a way to show each other the sort of gifts we would appreciate. Giving good gifts is important to us but we do not always have great ideas. (Adult men can be hard to shop for, am I right?) Amazon’s Wish List lets us add things from other sites or from the Amazon site, as well as including notes like “I want a nonstick, twenty-four muffin pan but it doesn’t have to be this one.” When Brian and I started dating, he mentioned he was unsure what to give me for my birthday. I showed him my wish list and told him that, like my family, he was welcome to use it for inspiration, to purchase something directly from it, or to give me something not even on the list. For my family, sharing wish lists on Amazon relieves some of the stressful guesswork of gift-giving.

What I Dislike: When searching the normal site, I like to open each potential purchase in a different tab so I can compare features and prices but that is not possible with the mobile app.

Disclaimer: I don’t own or have any vested interest in this or any other apps nor am I responsible for how you or anyone else choose to use them. Do your own research and make wise decisions!
