We all love shopping from our armchair. In my opinion, this particularly beats the mad rush of the mall. And what about over the holidays? No thanks, I'll order online. Amazon Mobile really makes it convenient to shop from your device. This app features Amazon Remembers which allows you to use the camera on your iPhone to create a visual list of things you want to remember while on the road. The photos you take from the app are stored on both the Amazon Mobile app and If the item you want to remember is a product, Amazon Remembers will even try to find a product similar to your photo for sale on the web. If found, they will send you an e-mail alert and post the result along with the photo. Now, how's that for friendly service! Some of the other great uses of Amazon Mobile are as follows:

- Comparing prices from Amazon and thousands of other merchants to those in the retail store where you are shopping
- Shopping for the full selection of products available from
- Purchasing and gift wrapping your holiday gifts while on the go
- Browsing product images and reading customer reviews while on the bus or train
- Tracking the status of a recently-placed order when you’re away from your computer
- Watching movie trailers and listening to music samples (iPad only).

The list of items which you can buy from Amazon are endless. Just a teeny bit of these products include: Books, Textbooks, Kindle, Magazines & Newspapers, Movies, Music, TV, Games, CDs, DVDs & Blu-ray DVDs, Musical Instruments, Video Games, Software, Accessories, PC Games, Computer Components, Office Products & Supplies, Electronics, Cameras and much more. The display of items is clear and sharp with a good sized font for easy reading. Navigation is super easy from buttons at the bottom of your screen. So search up whatever items you need, and put Amazon to work for you. Read reviews on products, shop around for lowest price and feel confident in buying from this mega company. Amazon Mobile is the shopping app geared towards making your life simple.
