Amazon has introduced a new free mobile shopping app for Windows Phone 7.
Amazon says the app is specifically designed for Windows Phone 7 and displays all of a product's details in a single view, allowing users to scroll horizontally to search and buy without have to load new screens or leave the app.
“We’ve combined the unique attributes of Windows Phone 7 with the popular Amazon shopping features customers have come to know and trust, to create an app that’s customized for Windows Phone 7 devices,” said Sam Hall, director of Amazon Mobile.
The Amazon App for Windows Phone 7 uses the new panoramic-style layout of the Windows user interface, where people can swipe left and right to view details of a product, read customer reviews, browse related items and make a purchase.
“With its panoramic layout and user-friendly design, Amazon for Windows Phone 7 is a prime example of the rich applications that will let Windows Phone 7 users get the most out of their phone,” said Todd Brix, senior director, Windows Phone Marketplace, Microsoft Corp.
