Amazon Mobile app gets updated with new “Shop by Department” feature

August 2, 2012
Mixers, anyone?

Let’s forget about whispers of the next generation Kindle Fire for a while and the possible epic clash between the rumored tablet with the Nexus 7 or even the iPad mini in the not so distant future. Amazon is – first and foremost – one of the best places to spend your money on things you didn’t even know you needed – until you make the grave mistake (oh, your poor credit card) of checking out Amazon’s virtual store shelves. A casual and innocent browsing can easily turn into a spending spree.

Shopaholics, who have come to rely on Amazon Mobile Android app to do their online shopping while on the go, will be pleased to hear that the app has received yet another update.

Following last month’s update that brought the ability to filter search results, version 2.0.1 of Amazon Mobile lets you explore and browse for products that much more easily – thanks to the newly introduced “Shop by Department” category.  A new search correction feature has also been put in place, which should help find the product that you need and want quickly. The new version comes with the usual bug fixes and performance enhancements as well.

Go ahead and download the latest Amazon Mobile app on Google Play. As part of its Subscribe & Save program, you can apparently get up to 15% discount and free shipping on select products.
