Amazon has been quick to catch up with Netflix and other services with their video offerings. If you're a subscriber to their Prime service, any video you can view on your computer can be streamed to your iPad. If you prefer to rent movies individually, those active rentals can be streamed as well. Downloading this app onto your iPad is a no-brainer if you're part of the Amazon Prime phenomenon.
What is it about?
Amazon Prime Video has hundreds of thousands of movies, TV shows and original content available to stream or download. The helpful Watchlist feature makes it easy for you to add videos for later viewing. Auto Play is another useful feature that allows you to start watching the next episode of your favorite show automatically, which is perfect for binge watching! The service is compatible with your Apple TV and is included in your Amazon Prime subscription.
