Amazon Releases Free iPhone App, Amazon Mobile

Amazon has announced the release of a new free application, Amazon Mobile, which is designed to work on the iPhone and iPod touch. Users wanting the new app can get it directly from the App Store.

The Amazon app offers an easy way for users to search and browse for products offered by Amazon and the thousands of retailers using Amazon like Target and Macy's. The app provides access to all of Amazon's features such as customer reviews, wish lists, existing shopping carts, order history and their traditional purchasing options including 1-Click Shopping and Amazon Prime.

The Amazon app for iPhone and iPod touch includes an experimental feature called "Amazon Remembers." Customers simply snap photos with their iPhone, the photos are automatically uploaded to, which then tries to find products similar to the ones in the photos. As soon as the customer receives the results, they can then purchase the item immediately or "remember it" for later in their Amazon account.

  1. There's no need to wait for Amazon's Mechanical Turks to respond to your searches. We have developed an iPhone app, Pricepad, that syncs your Shopping Wishlist, including photos, with the web. You can share your list with anyone directly from the phone by sending an email.

    Pricepad is available for US, UK, Canada and can also lookup barcodes.
