App Tour - Amazon UWP App for Windows 10 PCs and Mobile Devices


Earlier today we told you about Amazon's release of a new Universal Windows Platform (UWP) app for PCs, tablets and mobile devices running Windows 10.

It is a basic web wrapper app that appears to only take advantage of Live Tiles right now and will hopefully move forward to implement other UWP features to make it a worthwhile app for Windows 10.

The reality is that the Amazon website works just fine using the mobile version of Microsoft's Edge so a web wrapper app is considered the most basic of apps that does not require extensive effort to produce. However, in a world of niche apps and low market share on the mobile side this might be the best we get from Amazon for Windows 10.

On the other hand, as I mentioned earlier, they now have a base to work with and might focus on adding more functionality down the road but as Rod said in his article about this app, don't hold your breath.

Here is a quick look into the new app including a couple of shots from the mobile version.

But, wait...there's probably more so be sure to follow me on Twitter and Google+.
