With the Amazon app for Android tablets you can easily search across Amazon’s catalogue of millions of products to quickly find what you are looking for, browse and shop by department, and check out lightning deals. 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 swipe downwards, and you’ll find items that you’re interested in at the bottom of your screen so they’re accessible to you throughout the app.
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 Basket, Wish Lists, order history, notifications, ad personalization settings, Subscribe and Save items, 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.
On Android devices with GPS, we access phone location only so that we can provide customers with the option to send packages to a nearby Amazon Locker. 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 catalog of products using your voice (voice search is available only in the US).
* 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.
