Descriptions


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 with Android OS 4.0.3 and up.

Permissions:
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.
* Receive SMS: This permission is used to simplify the process of phone number verification when creating an Amazon account registered to your mobile phone number.

    Update: they've removed the recently viewed section which is a shame. Original review: If you make any changes to a search you must reselect all the pricing & other filters that you have set. There seems to be no way to make this crappy app take a default setting and actually remember it. Full Review

    A great app but the latest update has made it very slow. Add to Basket button delayed response, product pictures slow to load, scrolling jerky. Please fix. Full Review

    It's a great app, things I buy they arrive in the said time they would. My only problem is, it's difficult returning an item. Great app though and great items, I love love it! Full Review

    Nice app too bad it doesn't operate properly especially when checking saved for later stuff it keeps reloading to the cart and you have to try and scroll down. It just reloads to the top again very frustrating when trying to locate something you saved for later. Full Review

    Great app when I can successfully login. However, on my Pixel C I consistently get an error message that states "this device could not be authenticated." Does not happen on my phone, web, or other Google tablet. Full Review

    What happen to the font size? It's suddenly and recently tiny and unreadable on my nexus 7 2013 tablet. Even setting device to large for doesn't help much. Also massively slower. Using web now Full Review

    Every last fraking thing HAS to be animated. For example, I tapped on a thumbnail of a product which was somewhere around the seventh in a row of thumbnails, and instead of just showing the product's picture, I had to waste my time while the program scrolled through the first 6 or whatever items. Every last thing must slide or do something instead of just appearing. It's annoying Full Review

    What a waste of time. You update the app (at last) and don't bother to include the Australian store. Update: Another update but still no Australian store. Update 2: Still no Australian store! Full Review

    New Review: Why does it often take multiple taps for the app to respond when browsing products? Add to cart? - tap tap tap. Want to view a product image? Tap tap tap tap! Etc. Occasionally responds to first tap, but usually requires multiple. |#| Old Review: Why doesn't the tablet version have a Settings menu like the phone version does? Why do we have missing features just because we're using a tablet?? Full Review

    I got this app to download other apps and games... But it says it's not supported to download. I already downloaded normal Amazon app and it told me to download this one made for tablets for this to do the same. So how do I download apps from Amazon? It used to work fine, and now it doesn't work at all. Whilst I'm here could you point me in the direction of Amazon underground. Also used to work fine.. now it doesn't Full Review

    Yet another complaint about latest update: when using Kindle on my Lenovo tablet, the screen refuses to orientate. I can now only read books when holding tablet vertically, rather than in my preferred horizontal orientation. Please advise. Full Review

    Well done Amazon. Are you so short of money that you have to include auto play videos on your apps now? It's bad enough that the lock screen on the current range of fire tablets downloads and auto plays videos without asking, now you have to bring it to the tablet app too? Inline videos are scum. They distract from the content. They use customers bandwidth. Full Review

    Was a great great app till the latest update. Crashes before it starts up! All the time, keep getting crash reports without running the app! Fix please, then I'll give 5 stars. Full Review

    Slowest thing ever on my Galaxy Tab A. Amazon, do you actually want to stop me from adding to my cart? When I press the add button, there is no response, and I have to fiddle with it repeatedly. Going back to web until this is fixed. App works great on my Pixel, though. Full Review

    Tom Published date: February 12, 2018

    The product pages take FOREVER to load, and the buttons on each product page won't let you tap on them until EVERYTHING ELSE is loaded. If Amazon would make the loading algorithm more efficient then this app would be close to perfect. The filtering system for product searches can be unhelpful and sometimes not useful at all. If Amazon would change this too then I might think about giving it a 4-star review Full Review

    The sort option on the filter has been causing me to use eBay for many purchases, instead of Amazon. I use the filter to narrow my choices. This is where the problem is. Using the filter, I use the sort option. If there are 10,000 items, it stays at 10,000 items, just in a different order depending on which option I choose. That is until I choose low to high pricing. It will go from 10,000 to 20 items. Doesn't matter what item, it drops more than 90% of them. Very frustrating. I sent an email detailing the issue and was sent a message saying the problem was unclear. I'm paying for Prime but rarely use it anymore. Might be time to cancel. I just don't have time to sort through everything. Full Review

    Went to use the app today and all of the sudden I started getting unwanted, unsolicited ads in the form of autoplay videos. Not happy, at all. I have used Amazon for many years and I have spent thousands of dollars on purchases, but I will draw the line somewhere. Knock off the obnoxious third-party advertising, or I promise I will take my business elsewhere. Full Review

    Unfortunately Amazon for tablets won't even start on Galaxy Tab S3. The screen goes black and stays like this. Also when I tap the icon it lags a lot. I hope you'll fix it soon. Full Review

    UPDATE2: another update and *still* they don't fix the microscopic font size on 7" tablets! It is literally about 6pt on my Nexus 7". How difficult is this for you, that you don't seem able to fix it? UPDATE: Well done Amazon! Two months later, you finally get around to releasing an update —and completely fail to address the fact dozens of people have been telling you the text is literally too small to read on 7" tablets— f**king morons! PREVIOUS: Was working fine until the last update. Now text is literally too small to read on my 7" tablet. Even the most rudimentary beta testing would have flagged this up,so how the hell did this get out the door? And why is it still not fixed, several weeks later? Full Review
