Viewer reviews from iTunes

Fails in Lowe's store (4/5)

This app works fine when searching at home, but it will not work inside the Lowes store. App returns "internal error". My iPhone is set to allow this app to use cellular data. Otherwise the app works well. - Xzytle


Fake sale prices (1/5)

I get email specials from Amazon telling me a $50 item is on sale for 19.99. They tell me it’s 70% off regular price but that regular price they quote is a lie. Look around. You won’t find the MLMSY travel makeup bag anywhere for $50. It’s always around $20. So why does Amazon inflate a price to tell me they are discounting it ? Very misleading. Class-action lawsuit type activity. Price fixing and mis-representing prices so you think your getting a deal - StarCXC


Add on items (3/5)

Amazon is great the only problem is when you wanna purchase an item but can’t because of the ADD ON I wanted to purchase a movie and it was $5 however it told me had to be $25 and over so I add more things to my cart and it comes out to $27.17 problem is it’s still saying I can’t order the movie and I don’t understand why if ya over $25 like they told me. Amazon would be better if they didn’t have ADD ON ITEMS - Almight kash


Never works: “Check your internet connection” (1/5)

I’m a big Amazon user, but the app is horrible. It never works for me. It ALWAYS says “check your internet connection and try again” and never lets me get beyond that. This has gone on for months and months since first downloading it — and i keep returning thinking it might have been updated or improved, but no. I’ve restarted my phone a hundred times, x-ed our the app and re-downloaded it, and obviously checked my internet connection... never works. And while there’s some record of others having this issue, there’s no solution I can find. Oh well, lost business for Amazon. - TibbidGrits


Amazon good, App terrible (2/5)

Amazon is great but the app is terrible. Freezes frequently and just plain quits working on a regular basis. I’ll be looking at an item and the app’s back button won’t work so I have to go to the home page and start my search over. Last night was trying to submit a return and it got stuck scrolling down the page. Just annoying glitches considering I regularly update the app, often times have to delete it and re-download it. - tsheidcjfnfjf


Getting worse (2/5)

Used to love it for scanning books but now the scanner has expanded to include products and the scan search gives tons of irrelevant products. If I scan a book, I am looking for that book. Not all books have a barcode so the barcode scanning doesn’t help. Wish I could go back to the prior version. - Kyle7412


not optimized for iphone x (1/5)

The back button is in a terrible spot. Please fix. - Toddep23


Works like s*** (1/5)

Amazing how “proceed to check out” & buy now” works at even the slightest touch and the rest only works when it feels like working. - Innoname


Why y’all (1/5)

Selling crumbled cups??? - DJ Psilocybenni


Good app but very buggy. (1/5)

There are many issues with the app not loading correctly or buttons not responding to touch. Especially in the top area where the time is. The most annoying issue is, if you make a purchase and then try to make another purchase minutes after, the app just will crash after you click on “checkout”. You have to go to the website to actually go through checkout. - AlienFX


Excellent. (5/5)

No bugs or problems. - AlienBladeStudios


Update has messed up wish list (1/5)

Wanted to update my wish list and got the message that I needed to update my app. I’m running the newest app on my IPad. Have never had a problem before. Wouldn’t let me update the amount of an item I had on a wish list. Fix this please. - Dyna309


NOT WORTH THE MONEY (1/5)

I signed up for amazon prime for the year for $99 as advertised but instead of doing what I simply asked for they deny me yearly membership without cause and decide to charge my account $130 a year instead of the advertised $99 a year. When I asked for them to fix it, all I get told is you can cancel your account and that’s all we can do for you? Like what?! Talk about good customer service... yeah NEVER again will I bother with Amazon - unhappy ex-member


CAN’T CHECK OUT (2/5)

This app worked fine until about a month ago. Now, when I go to check out, it keeps bumping back to my cart. I end up having to go to the regular website on my phone and complete check out there. So annoying. - Heatherlou02


Accounts settings no accessible (2/5)

Impossible to access Account settings, which don’t show in the menu. I.e. cannot view Prime Membership details or payment options. I have tried to report the problem to Amazon through their feedback email/chat, and was connected to 8 representatives whose only concern is to refer me to someone else. I hope they read these reviews. - MoogEtFender


Bug on product pages (3/5)

I can’t view the product pages using the app. When I click on the links, I get nothing but a flashing white page that never loads. I have to remember to open the amazon.com site in Safari to view product pages. I keep hoping they’ll fix this, but it’s been ages now. I have an iPhone 6s and am current on all updates. - disenamour


Trade-in Store (4/5)

Love this app. Would like to scan bar codes to find items to trade in, however in the “Search for items to trade-in” section, the bar code scanner doesn’t work. I can get the bar code scanner to work from the camera icon on the main screen, but am unable to determine from this screen whether the item is eligible for trade-in. Would use the trade-in account regularly if I could scan items! - cgedds203


Fix (1/5)

My app isn’t working, it doesn’t want to connect to the internet - Thissuckstho1


Need to fixes items i list , Will update to 5 star once items below are addressed: (1/5)

( jan 19 2018 ) - initial review: I will immediately update this review to a five star review , once items below are fixed, or at least responded to (or addressed) : 1a- (most important) - We need to be able to search reviews on the app. Only having this functionality in the web version is a palling after this after the app has been out this long (and with this if you updates in terms of frequency) 1b- (2nd most important) - ADD LANDSCAPE MODE/ orientation!!! 1c- (3rd most important) - overall (web+app) WHEN YOU CHNAGE OPTIONS FOR AN ITEM, ONLY AHOW REVIEWS FOR THAT SPECIFIC ITEM! Example; let’s say a pair of pliers have two options you can choose, 8 inch for $10, or 14 inch for $21-depending on which option you choose only show reviews relevant to that option chosen. Many items will have lots of options which totally change the product, but when you click to read the reviews, (which are all which apply to all options) the reviews won’t even make sense or everyone is trying to give two stars to the 14 inch pliers but five stars to the 8 inch pliers and it’s impossible to tell which reviews apply to which option. (also sellers use this bug to boost up their review count or even worse, slip in a trash item/“options” of an item that already has high reviews , thus it looks like the high reviews apply to that trash item/option as well..) 1- Amazon needs to add a app “Feedback/suggestions” option, like 90% of other apps/services have built-in. This way amazons “valued” users can provide constructive feedback based on real world experience/usage. This will also allow the developers to gather system logs or screenshots if users cheese just submit those in their feedback. This of course is if Amazon even cares about making this app better or listening to its customers. I’m not sure if they do or don’t. However it’s pretty indicative of their position that app feedback has never been in the app, ever. 2- Needs to have better “share this item” icons/functionality/visibility in the app. Currently it’s a tiny little icon midway through a product page, and it’s very hard to spot and it’s functionality is poor once you tap it. 3- there needs to be an alert me button/field where you can receive an email alert once an out of stock or unavailable item , again becomes available. This should apply to any and all items that are un-available or out of stock,. On the web version of Amazon.com *some* (few) unavailable items will give you this option, every unavailable or out of stock item should give you this option, and it must be also on the app (as of now it is totally missing from the Amazon app). 4- contact support; there needs to be the option to send a message/email/ticket to Amazon customer support in regards to an item, the only options currently our chat or receive a call back. Both of these options occupy much more time then a user may want to dedicate to resolving an issue, as opposed to being able to send an email/message/ticket to support which may take one to three minutes and you are done. 5- I like the recently added wish list at the bottom of app, that you can drag items to, however there needs to be A way you can lock that wish list so that it never changes (i.e. the list at the bottom of the app never changes unles you specifically unlock it or manually change it yourself). Often times the wish list at the bottom of the app will change or switch to another wish list I have and it takes me a while to find the wish list I was using previously as I have many (very frustrating). (Or another option/solution, would be an iOS/app specific wish list that appears on the web also, but that you can lock as always being the wish list at the bottom of the app) 6- any and all functions or options that are available in the full blown web version of Amazon.com, on a desktop PC, should be available in the app in some form or another. While there are several examples, one example is the lack of the ability to modify your address book within the app. **** It is important that we app users demand more from apps and their developers, and STOP blindly throwing out five star reviews! (except for truly exemplary apps, or when there is active weekly or monthly updates/development on the app). Users need to demand more from apps, and stop defaulting to a 5 or 4 star reviews. These are large companies with dedicated development teams behind their app, they must learn to respect / respond to user feedback and update their app in a timely and consistent matter, based on user feedback. We the users are the *sole* reason these companies and apps are so valuable ($), and this the developers/team should treat us accordingly and fair. Again, I will * immediately * update this review to a five star one once these issues are fixed/addressed/reply to (I check and read app updates/change logs multiple times a week). I will also timestamp any new review updates, and will never delete or modify prior review updates. Thanks! - jo2jo


Images don’t Load (3/5)

When you scroll down the deals, images disappear for a moment and reappear after some 3-4 sec. That continuously happens as long as you scroll! Not an expect from Amazon! - EvenSo,ComeLord


Perfect until... (4/5)

Get rid of the one click purchase. I’ve bought things on accident 3 times now. - tararaemsu


Unhappy customer (1/5)

Advertised shipping is often incorrect and takes much longer. Costumer service is not like it was and now play around with you. You guys play stupid, playing stupid games not at all what Amazon was in the beginning - 8jjhy2


Amazon Smile? (5/5)

Hi, when using this app does my charity of choice still get a portion of proceeds from my purchase or do I need to continue making purchases through the website instead? Thanks! - NickBS100


Fix the bug (1/5)

It has been telling me for over a week now to check my internet connection and try again. I have checked and been on WiFi, everything on my phone works but this app. 😡 - Noguejio


Split Screen Please! (2/5)

It would really help to have another app open for reference while shopping. Product detail and descriptions aren't always the best on amazon. Seems like a straightforward update. - Great Oden's Raven


Doesn’t work anymore (1/5)

I don’t know what the deal is but any time I try and view my order history, account or even try and sign out I just get a pop up saying that sorry something has gone wrong please try again. Been doing this for at least a week now. Not sure if it’s related to Touch ID but every time I go to a screen that wants my fingerprint, after doing so I get the error. - Architekt909


1 Click Purchasing (1/5)

TURN THIS OFF, you may buy something of high cost and not even realize it! I am not too happy>:| - Connor Rusty


please (3/5)

add support for smart invert colors. - Jessesaint


Dash buttons. What a stupid idea to force them (1/5)

Why can I not disable the app from creating dash buttons? Amazon said it’s a benefit for Prime members. BS it is freaking punishment. I don’t need a dumb button taking up screen UI to help me remember anything. Idiots. - Jase1125


A little regression testing would have helped. (1/5)

App used to work great. But the last two updates broke it all over the place. Touch ID no longer works. Can’t change shipping options. Can’t even CHECK OUT! I’m using the browser version. - EFW1099


What happened? (1/5)

I still love Amazon as a company, but they are messing up this app. I absolutely hate that they have video ads now with no option to turn off for use on cellular data. Cause I really wanna give Verizon even more money hitting data overages because I simply scrolled into a crappy ad where they dip a tube shaped cookie into some third rate Amazon-wanna-be Nutella. Yeah that’s just great. Thanks. Oh and for all the new bugs too. Thanks. - Deej007


3rd party = sad party (3/5)

I want to Eliminate/disable 3rd party purchases! They never come in correctly, they are always broken or improperly packaged! To make it worse they never take anything back or they take forever to process a return! Please give me the option to get rid of 3rd party purchases! Also! Pictures illuminating fabric cut and style would be great! - Images uploaded ASAP 12345678


Please update your ui on iPad (3/5)

The user interface for iPad is clunky and thoughtless with regard to where the search bar should be (centered, duh) and shares very little in common with the iPhone version of the app currently available. Please consolidate menu items in the left side of the screen in a menu similar to the iPhone app. Please incorporate gestures to open that menu (iPad is not just a poke and press device). Please use similar colors in the iPad app as the iPhone app. Update the logo colors in the heading. Properly space ui elements so they are easier to read. THEY SHOULD NOT BE SCRAMBLED TOGETHER IN THE CORNER. Change the mic logo to the Amazon Alexa button so people actually know what that does instead of thinking it’s dictation. Expand the top bar to reflect current iOS changes (think your own iPhone app, but bigger). Align add to cart buttons in the deals page. App needs an overhaul. Please fix the ui to reflect this fantastic service’s quality. Also perhaps consider removing the percentage or at least keep it consistent and editing the time to be the same to look more like a multi-billion dollar company’s app instead of worse than many indie developer apps. Status bar should be consistent. - Blahebvlxk


Bad Amazon (2/5)

This update wiped out our shopping list. Not good! - by Aunt Kathy MAR 10th 2011


Idiots (1/5)

They delivered my stuff in the wrong mailbox 3 times and I don't even get a refund for their mistake - Nickdakid520


Latest update broke the app (1/5)

Update: still broken. "Still loading" and "something went wrong", the two most common phrases you'll see when trying futilely to use this app. I just make purchases elsewhere when using my iPad because amazon has the most resource intensive website that is almost unusable on mobile devices. ------- The widget stopped working and the app freezes when you do things like try to check S&S or just browse. - Originator 88


Amazon (5/5)

I love you amazon you will be my favorite store for ever - mommaof 1


Lists no longer work (1/5)

Updated app 5 days ago and now cannot view lists. Might as well not have the app! App tells me to update to view lists - DUH! - Yup 10


Show Orders not working with latest ios releases (4/5)

Screen just sits at “loading” - Anon1234&$)


Trouble connecting to internet (2/5)

I constantly get a message that the app can’t connect to the internet and to try again later. I usually end up deleting the app and re-downloading it. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t. It’s annoying. - AfricanAtHeart


App crashes since latest update (1/5)

Wishlist keeps crashing the app. When it doesn't crash it tells me I need to update the app to continue using my wish list even though the app is up-to-date. I love Amazon but this app is terrible. - VickieNJ27


Wishlist has issues (3/5)

Whenever I change the sorting to priority(high to low) and I change the number or priority of something on my wishlist and save it, it goes back to the default sorting. I wish it would stay in the priority (high to low) setting. - Flick86


Stopped working properly (1/5)

After the latest software update, the app no longer works properly. I can search for things but I can’t view orders, place orders or add things to my cart or wishlist. And today it won’t allow me to sign in. I keep getting a message that says “Sorry, something went wrong. Please try again.” - PhoenixOliver3


Huge flaw still hasn’t been fixed (2/5)

Still no back button once you click Amazon at the top! The arrow disappears. You can’t go back to your previous page if you accidentally click Amazon. It will bring you to the homepage without any way to go back to previous page. BIG FLAW! Please fix this. - kati3g


Makes shopping frustrating (2/5)

I use this all the time on an iPad and iPhone because I have Prime. Problems I’ve noticed on the iPhone & iPad are while reading reviews you will keep reading repeat reviews because it loops back & you’ll question your sanity as well as waste your time. Another, on the iPad app you can’t see customer photos which makes reviews less helpful, but you can see them on the iPhone, so I have to open up my iPhone if I really want to see customer photos. It’s been a long time and I’ve updated these apps any times, but never an improvement to those issues. I would love this app if you could fix those bugs. I also don’t care for the item drop wishlist, I find it more annoying that I have to click it away after accidentally pressing something for too long. - Sweetnstarryeyed


Hm (4/5)

Love the app. Buy all my textbooks from amazon. But the app keeps saying “something’s wrong” when I sign into my account through this app. It’s fine if I type it in using a browser though. Definetly needs fixed. - yurrmommyykinss


Irritating (3/5)

Ok. I really love shopping on amazon but one thing really irritates me. When your looking for something you can only go one way and if you lose the page your on you have to start over. Why don’t you have a right arrow ? I’m using the app on my iPhone am I missing something. - Natazone


Needs fixes (2/5)

App works for browsing. Saving to lists. Adding to cart. Will Not Work For Final Checkout. Weird that Amazon would not like to complete purchase from app. What’s up with fingerprint login?? Ever going to show up? - Sal3007


Error when going to “my orders”on iPad app (1/5)

When I use the app on my iPad and select my orders, it prompts me for the Touch ID and then I get an error saying, “sorry something went wrong. Please try again.” And then the screen says “still loading”and it never comes up. This does not happen on iPhone app, just on iPad. ☹️ - Janelledddddd


Amazon app iPad won’t let you order (1/5)

Tried several times no response from app. Tried several days later same thing happened. Had to go to desktop to order - Doctorh2ox
