Amazon has just updated its official iOS app with a new feature on iPhone and iPad and, more importantly, support for Apple Watch.
Amazon App, as the app is officially called on the App Store, now has a Safari share extension that, once enabled, allows you to add products to your Amazon Wish List through websites other than Amazon.
For example, while browsing a publisher’s website on Safari, I might find a book that I’d like to read, whereupon I just tap the Wish List option in the share menu to automatically add the book to my Amazon Wish List.
As mentioned, the new version of Amazon App includes Apple Watch compatibility. Specifically, this allows customers in the U.S., Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Spain, and the U.K. to shop on Amazon right on their wrists.
If you’re one of those customers, you can use Amazon’s official Apple Watch app to quickly search, buy, and add to your Wish List.
You can search for products by dictating keywords. You can then tap on an item in the search results to add it to your Wish List, buy it with Amazon’s patented 1-Click shopping system, or use Handoff to view its full details on your iPhone. Shopping in general and impulse buying in particular have never been this quick and easy.
