All those normal features that are expected from Amazon are seen along with the 1-Click checkout, Wish List, Amazon Prime plus recommendations of the products on the basis of the user’s searches and purchases.  I know it really sounds to be an impressive idea for shopping during holidays in a very easy way in a comfortable manner in just a click distance from the armchair. You can download the free app from the website if you are confident of handling the 1-Click temptation right at the finger tips.

The multi-touch interface allows the users to scroll right and left through different categories which are about 40 in number. Every section has got specific products graded and listed vertically.

Home button along with the search option is present on the left hand side at the top of the screen which enables easy navigation in the app. Windowshop app is user friendly, comprehensible and smooth.However e-book shopping is not that easy on this app. It is similar as purchasing a book via Kindle app, where this app navigates the user to Kindle Store through Safari Window.
