Amazon.in, the Indian affiliate of Amazon.com is an online marketplace offering customers a vast selection of products with a world-class e-commerce platform. While the Amazon app has been in the Windows Phone Store for a long time now, Amazon India customers had to wait until today to access the storefront from their Windows Phone devices. The Android and iOS apps for Amazon.in had launched last year.
The official Amazon.in app allows customers to browse, search, and shop from a selection of 17 million products across a broad range of categories from anywhere on their Windows Phone devices.
The Amazon app allows customers to browse and search for their favorite products and brands, view recommendations and customer reviews, and add to wish list or the shopping cart. Once you've completed a purchase, you can track the status of the orders from within the app, and also check out your previous order history. The app also supports barcode scanning for quick price checks. You can pin the barcode scanner to your phone's Start screen and access it with a single tap.
The app features a neat and modern user interface, and although the app offers a broad catalog and a lot of features, the user experience is intuitive. While new customers can sign up for an account from within the app, existing customers can use their Amazon.in credentials and their order history and account details would carry to the app.
Amit Agarwal, Vice President and Country Manager, Amazon India, had this to say about the launch of the app on Windows Phone:
