Since it seems a whole new batch of these emails are going out we've bumped this story from a couple of days ago for anyone who might have missed it. Original story follows.
Amazon is emailing customers who have installed the Windows Phone app to be aware that this mobile solution will no longer be available from August 15. The online retail giant is asking everyone who relies on the Windows Phone app to begin using the mobile version of its website. This is quite the blow for those who were desperately holding out for an update to finally hit the store.
From the email:
Should you already have the Amazon app downloaded and installed, you should be able to continue using the app once this deadline has come and gone. There's still no word yet as to whether or not Amazon will roll out a new UWP app. You can download the app from the Windows Store, but we'd actually recommend you simply use the mobile website.
Thanks to everyone who tipped us!
