New Delhi, India, August 07, 2014: Amazon.in has launched its Windows Phone shopping app. The Amazon app for Windows Phone users in India offers customers a convenient, fast and secure way to search, browse, compare offers, and make purchases quickly and easily, anywhere from a selection of 1.7 crore products. Amazon.in had launched apps for Android and iOS last year.
Amit Agarwal, Vice President and Country Manager, Amazon India, said, “Our vision is to provide our customers in India with the most convenient and trustworthy shopping experience anywhere. We see mobile as a very important part of our growth strategy and are committed to offering the best experience to our mobile customers. Customer response to our Android and iOS apps have exceeded our widest expectations, and we are excited to extend the same on- the-go shopping experience to our customers on Windows Phone.”
Talking about the new app, Joseph Landes, Microsoft India Chief Evangelist said, “Consumers are increasingly looking for ways to shop from the comfort of their homes and when they are on the move, without having to actually step into a physical store. The Amazon.in app on Windows Phone allows users to quickly search, compare prices, read reviews, share products with friends, and make purchases on Amazon India using a simple, yet elegant interface. To make on-the-go shopping even easier, the Amazon.in app includes helpful shopping features like allowing users to scan a barcode, and more. We are pleased to offer our consumers this new addition to our Windows Phone store.”
Amazon’s Windows Phone app allows customers to conveniently shop on the go; they can browse & search for their favorite products and brands, view recommendations & customer reviews, add to wish list & cart, complete the purchase using the available payment options and track the status of their orders. The app’s UI has been custom designed for the Windows platform and is easy to navigate. The app supports barcode scanning for quick price checks. Customers can also pin the barcode scanner to their phone’s Start screens and access it with a single tap.
The Amazon.in app is compatible with Windows Phone 8 and above and is now available for free download on the Windows Phone Store. New customers can sign up for an account using the Amazon App, while existing customers can login using their Amazon.in username and password to access the same account that they use on the website.
