Play6589 - Subscribe and Save is a rip-off
This review isn’t about the app. The app is fine with me. This is about Amazon’s subscribe and save. I had many items on it and realized the item was cheaper if I had ordered it myself. I contacted custom service and was told to wait until I receive the item before they would give me the cheaper price. I’m figuring when I did receive it, the cheaper price would be gone and they wouldn’t refund or they count on a customer forgetting to contact them. I canceled my five year prime membership along with canceling all subscribe and saves. Prime has gotten to be a joke, too. I loved the music. Now they want to you pay MORE to hear up-to-date good music by subscribing to their music service. The only reason I had prime was for the shipping and the music. Now we’re down to one and I’ve been finding better pricing on items I buy elsewhere. Prime is no longer worth it for me. So disappointed.
Wiser4it - Unacceptable.
To be honest, I can’t always differentiate between the app and the retailer’s flaws. I can compare the app to the website, though. I have a major issue with Amazon’s search engine, which usually ignores many of my search terms. I have huge issues with the quality of the products and the stingy limitations it places on my ownership of music and audiobooks I have paid for and should own for my money. Food stamps? Check out the microscopic choices available to the poor, who can use their food stamps for almost anything edible, in regular stores.
I have many irritations with the app, such as no dates on reviews (which we know are not useful because so many of them are simply bogus propaganda from people being rewarded for positive contributions), the app’s design, which is far more awkward and limiting than Amazon’s website.
Both access points are aggravating in their inefficiency. I was seduced by Prime’s free shipping but am growing disgusted by Amazon’s poor customer service, its obfuscation of information, its focus on selling the cheapest garbage out there, its deceptive vendors, its manipulative and half-useless navigation algorithms, and its apparent business strategy of wasting as much of my time as possible, and I feel that the app is a rather crudely implemented extension of the company and its deplorable values and business plan. This app offers less than the website, and I don’t recommend it.
Why wont my names work - Not the app but the actual company
I dislike them, they’ve gotten worse, now our packages arrived not sealed at all which 9 times out of 10 means the order DOESNT ARRIVE then they want us to sent it back for a refund or replacement WHEN THERE IS NO ITEM. Its stupid! Because if you click the Missing/broken they ASSUME YOU HAVE IT EVEN THOUGH ITS MISSING. Theres no on site thing to review the company itself. Or file a complaint for its actual team. Then you spend an 1 hour on the phone with someone with an accent so thick you can’t understand them explaining you dont have the item! And it take them the entire hour to understand, for example, “i dont have the item i want a refund”
“You….dont have the item?” “No i dont have it” “ah well you can return it to get your refund” “I DONT HAVE IT” “Ohhhh!!! You dont have it, Let me see what i can do!” (30 minutes of waiting)
“Ah so it seems we can refund this but we can only do it to the site, maybbe the card” “i want the card refund. Its my money i need it” “Let me see what I can do…. you dont have the item???” “i dont have the item.” “Okay okay” (10 minutes) “you started the return process, yes? Can you return the item??“ “No.”(20 more minutes of basically explaining it in different words I NEVER received the item) “okay okay.. Ive started the return process your refund should be there in 5 days” “Thank you.”
THATS EVERYTIME IM ON CALL WITH THEM.
Lordsearider - Up grade destroyed it
After the last several upgrades for the I-Pad version, no longer I-Pad friendly. App constantly rotates to a to line up with “phone” size and I-Pad has to be rotated back and forth constantly to realign back to horizontal format. This also occurs after each time you tap “back”, “return to search”. Then after returning back to previous search page you back at the first page and have to advance back to where you were. This “new” format and layout some times do not have a purchase button and only have a subscription button or neither. It’s to much like a phone app now. I’m sorry but i have a I-Pad, not a I-PHONE I do not want them stupid buttons on the bottom like an I-phone app. Also along the bottom of the window there is a black spot that appear when you first open the app and it also appear to be a notification window but blank. I have tried to tap on it, move it, open it, expand it, but nothing works, it just sits there covering half the screen. Also the right side of page is covered up or running off the edge. You can’t reduce size to make page fit, nor move it over to read it. I have deleted app and reinstalled to try and correct problems, and it may work fine or it may not. When it does load right, the next time I open it’s back to the “I-Phone” format.
Nessa_33 - Buggy and Not Responsive/ No more separate wishlists?
This app used to be seamless. I don’t know what happened but now, there are times when I cannot click to view the reviews of a product. Usually I can just click on the number of reviews next to the stars and it’ll take me to all the reviews, but now, it’s like it’s no longer hyperlinked and it does nothing when clicked on. So I tried the slower route which is to scroll down until you get to the reviews, but it turns out, when the app is bugging like that, you can’t scroll down to the reviews because the page just stops right after the price area. So no reviews to read at all. I try clearing my app history by swiping out and going back in but that doesn’t help. There’s no remedy right now for this bug.
On the off chance you can click and read reviews, the pictures no longer fully display. It’ll just be the heading ‘Reviews with Images’ and a blank spot where the pictures would be displayed. When that happens, the hyperlinked ‘See All’ is also gone too.
Also, why can’t I select which list my hearted items go to anymore? All my hearted items go only to wishlist now with no drop down menu to change it to another custom list. Why?
ServRev - Ridiculous & On-going Pop-up Suggestions/Tips
Update: DELETING APP! Issue below continues and I will shop elsewhere! These pop ups really disrupt the shopping experience! Breaks your train if thought and what you were looking for—so fine, you won’t stop, so I will, buying elsewhere!
We are all different—we think and sequence differently. STOP TELLING ME HOW TO DO THINGS—stupid pop up short cuts suggestions every time I do something—it disrupts the shopping experience. As a person with disabilities, it’s rude and insensitive for you to constantly remind me there is a way you want me to do things. Once is fine, but every time is like a pushy parent! Thanks for being the bully Amazon—so much for your sensitivity ads that you are open and accepting. Do you tell the deaf guy in your ads to listen differently? and do you constantly drop him tips in the same manner, with pop-ups? (You get my point!) Mind your own business—one reminder is enough—or there are other places I can shop! The passive aggressiveness is over the top! As well as your sneaky tactics of putting things on shopping lists I didn’t put there! (Must be a new MBA in Marketing trying to kiss up to management that he/she/they are increasing sales!) JUST STOP!!
JCPennyy - packaging is annoying
oh my gosh this is getting so frustrating. i order something over 2 weeks ago, ETA had been September 2nd. Doesn’t arrive and i’m told it’s running late. I get it, things happen. It tells me that my package will now arrive from the 5-7th. I wait patiently as it tells me that if it doesn’t arrive by the 7th then i can get a refund and cancel the order. The day comes and i’m now told I have to wait till that Friday (aka today) to be able to get a refund. Fridays here and guess what message I get? Yup, my package is now expected on the 15th. Still no option for a refund, and at this point i don’t even need the stuff I bought anymore (it was for a business) Total waste of time and just so frustrating, won’t let me speak to customer service either.
Also, i don’t know what y’all did in the update but now I can only see 2 reviews out of however many there are, and of course it’s only the good reviews instead of the ones that actually say if anything is wrong. At first I thought it was just my phone, but my computer is the same thing. It’s not my wifi either, but please fix this because lately the app has been so frustrating.
L!lG87 - Parting with Prime
After almost a year of being on the fence, I finally ended my decade long loyalty with a company I was once proud to support. Nothing is eligible for 2-day shipping anymore, half of the stuff is cheap Chinese low quality knock offs, returns take weeks to process, and customer service doesn’t even speak the same language. The past few months have been nothing but ongoing issues. Oh and now apparently anyone can get free Prime shipping on $35 or more? Are you kidding me? What a joke. We don’t want video (that is riddled with ads and anything decent you have to pay extra for), music, cloud storage, GrubHub memberships, none of that. We just want fast, free shipping. This company has spread itself too thin and is no longer focusing on what made it what it is today. So for that reason, it is just not worth it anymore to me. Stop using COVID and “staffing issues” as an excuse. Get your business together or go away. It’s that simple. I am very, very disappointed in how quickly things have gone south. I will spend my hard earned money with smaller businesses that actually appreciate me and follow through with their commitments.
John0627 - Not very app like and not very browser like either
This so called app is confused when used on the Apple Mini. It acts a little like the app on my iPhone and yet I can’t share products like I can from my phone.
It also acts like I’m using a browser by allowing me to “zoom in” to get a closer look at images as if I were on the browser.
What I would like to see is the utilization of the browser like attributes and the app like attributes and make the tablet version better than the phone version, yet still have the conveniences of the phone app. I want to be able to immediately share something through text because I can text on my Apple Mini or my Apple iPad. I also like the full picture view better than magnifying a portion of an image. I find it more convenient using my computer’s browser because my finger is not in the way of images, only the tiny little cursor.
My suggestion, make the Mini iPad version like the iPhone version because they are not that different since the iPad is a larger extension of the iPhone (app-wise) and not a PC.
Camaroannie - Broken app
I don’t understand what’s going on, I could open the app, see where it says orders, etc. but that’s it. If I click on anything, and I mean anything, it continuously says oops something went wrong! I deleted the app in hopes it would fix the problem, but that only created a new one. The app has completely disappeared from my phone after updating it, I guess that’s what they wanted me to do but… the only way to get to it is through the App Store. The app refuses to be on my phone. What is going on? I’m not gonna go onto the App Store every single time I wanna try and see if it works. I really want to know why my phone thinks it’s installed, but I don’t even have the app on it physically, it does not exist after the update. i’ve never seen an app wanting me to go to the App Store in order to get to it. It logs me right in with all my info, so what the heck is going on? I don’t know how else to explain this weird situation. it simply does not exist anywhere on my phone except for the App Store.
Avantidomani - iPad app buggy when using Magic Keyboard trackpad
I primarily use my iPad with the Magic Keyboard. For about the last month I’ve noticed a bug where the pointer will skip to the empty portion of the tab bar to the left of the home tab every time the pointer enters the tab bar. It’s like the location of each item is being mapped to the blank area at the far left, but *only* when navigating with the trackpad. After it initially jumps left when entering the tab bar, I can click in the blank area and will be taken to the cart. If I carefully move the pointer in that blank space, I can find the corresponding spots to click into the other tabs. As soon as I approach the actual location of each item in the tab bar, however, the pointer jumps to the empty space in the far right. It’s impossible to hover the pointer over any of the the actual items in the bar so I have to use my finger on the screen instead. (Trying to use my finger in the blank area that responds to the pointer does nothing until I enter the expected boundary area for the home tab.)
There should be more prayer - Be thankful for their kindness
There are too many times where I’ve needed something I could not go out and just buy.
I can say where something unexpected occurred that was more than I believed could happen for when God was with our family. Thank you for beyond meeting my expectations when I needed to have groceries in a hurry, rewards covered opportunities for helping my daughter, return item(s), new purchases for my daughter and I, or have gifts find the people that deserve goodness in their lives. Their company has morals behind the people that are in support when it comes to caring for assistance in my ability to be a single mother and keep going despite my inability to staying on track often.
Thank you for investing in me, families that are in need and/or unable to go places due to unfortunate times of emotional rehabilitation to restore families to prosper.
Carterdl - So many bad changes/updates
Bring back the drag and drop save/compare option. It made it easy to scroll through other items in your wishlist. Now we have the heart button to add an item to save an compare but we have to actually pull up the list to look at the items. Instead of having easy access.
Make it easier for us to browse through the customer review pictures. When I click on a single picture and then go back to the full list of pictures it takes me all the way back to the top of the list instead of taking me back to where I was. Imagine looking at products that have over 100 pics and you have scrolled through 50, you enlarge a picture, and when you’re done looking you hit the back button and they take you back to #1. That’s annoying if you plan to look at more than one picture up close.
Also, please allow us to scroll through items we’ve searched for without having to press “next page” every 2 minutes. We used to be able to just scroll unlimited products all on one page
Earsoftears - stuck in spanish
Amozon has always been the easiest way to order I like the one click and I like it when the Amozon truck delivers but that is all becoming more inconvenient. But the latest glitch has stop me from ordering a single thing . Its stuck in spanish ! about a month ago I went to order and every page and every item was spanish I worked trying to find a setting finally had to do a google search then proceded tofollow the steos ( feeling this would fix it but still wondering how it ever got change to spanish) But after finding a setting for region and english It didnt work. soI hadnt ordered inweeks . then again today without remembering the problem went to order and !!! still stuck in spanish . and like the time before I tried endlessly to reach costomer service but its only multiple choice none of which came close So hear I amwriting a review hoping this will get the attention of someone. This is a gme changerfor me .
RedSwan91 - Less user friendly than it used to be
I used to like the app - it had most of the same searching ability as the desktop browser. With all the updates recently, it has to reload the page each time I want to add a filter even if it is a deeper level of the same type of filter. I also used to be able to use a search term and select ANY category I was interested in. Now a search term may only yield a few options to narrow a category. Example: I search for “stainless steel” and I can’t refine my search by the category of “arts, crafts and jewelry making”. If change the search term to “stainless steel charms”, I can refine my search by “arts, crafts and jewelry making”. The problem is that “charms” may not be the exact thing I am looking for and I want a more broad search but not so broad that I get entirely unrelated items.
MissMel01 - Ugh so bad
Ever since the new interface it’s gone from bad to worse. The app is clunky and it freezes if I go back from an item page sometimes it resets me all the way back to page 1. Then I have to scroll down hit next and do that 5x to get back where I was. Sometimes images don’t load on the list pages. My WiFi is fine doesn’t happen anywhere else. They don’t make it any easier to shop with these issues.
I hate how they list orders now. All out of order and everywhere. 1 of my orders just fell off the wagon no notifications on THAT 1 supposed to arrive yesterday it’s a few miles away and now suddenly it’s 2-4 days before delivery and that is not at the top of my order list - a missed delivery! No it’s down at the bottom just above delivered but below all upcoming deliveries. Unreal. This should be a priority because it was missed it’s close by and there’s a shipping issue delaying multiple days and no explanation.
The new interface is not user friendly. Prior to most recent update notifications were at the top to click (the bell) it’s gone now.
Nikkibanks - iPad version full of bugs
I expect a better iPad version from the largest richest conglomerate company in the world. The iPad version hasn’t had an update released in a very long time, looks and functions different than iPhone version, looks and acts like it hasn’t been updated in 5 years.
iPhone version looks and works much better and efficiently (except the lists section which is counter intuitive on iPhone version). iPad version has dozens of frustrating bugs - to look at a picture closer is hilarious, to scroll through search results defaults back to page 1 of your search each time which is scandalous, when you click on a product the page loads and expands for several seconds and takes a while for it to line up with other hyperlinks which is amateur.
Who is in charge of Amazon’s app developing? They need to have the awareness of keeping all apps on Apple devices the same, update the versions at the same time with the same look, make sure the iPad version is up to date and working perfectly like the iPhone version does.
ThomasDav - Absolutely Hate the New UI and Color Crime
I’m not normally one to complain, but the new app update was a grand waste of time and effort. If you paid for that abomination, I would demand your money back... and an apology.
The user interface change is so different from the previous app that it makes for a very confusing and frustrating experience. I spent more time figuring out the cluttered navigation than I did shopping - and I apologize, but I do not believe you could have found a more hideous chimera of accent colors if you applied two AI’s and a team of failed design school dropouts to the task. That sickly, washed-out mint green, tried to be aqua, and God I wish I were blue, is absolutely repugnant and nauseating to behold. Marketing FAIL! Please, for the sake of those of us with good color vision make it go away. I will have to use the mobile website until it is purged. If you just put it back the way it was, I’ll give it 5 stars out of mercy and never complain again.
Mindless Drivel - Poor UI and broken transactions
The app consistently fails to add things to your cart. Sometimes doesn’t respond despite repeated pressing of “Add to Cart”. Reload same thing.
The search system has really went down hill. You can do a search on almost anything, a movie for instance? And they will find 20 thins completely unrelated to what you wanted and so far out of left field you’ll wonder if you typed something wrong. Think you have it working? Haha! Heres a picture of a dog and a link back to the main page so all your search was in vain and you have to start over! But wait! There’s more! Here’s a stupid Alexa icon that never goes away and cant be removed and it’s strategically placed so you hit every time you scroll. Here’s some sliding menus that don’t fit your screen! Like that suggested item? Too bad! Broken link!
Ive given up shopping via this app as its basically a frustration inducing waste of space on my phone. Really only good for tracking shipments- when I can get it to work at all.
Jane7344 - Problems with latest version
Another problem with latest version (sept 2021). Tried to look at subscribe and save order - just looped sending me back to shopping the subscribe and save items and only showed about 10% of available products.
This app is useful only for checking on order status and not for shopping - too bad.
Can’t place order. It just returns user to proceed to checkout - looping forever. When try to display orders it asks for the login again (even if I just logged in a minute ago). The login completes and then displays a pop up box saying there was a problem try again. You click ok and the app hangs saying loading information Minutes pass. When you get tired of waiting and go back to the item, again you get into the same loop. Sometimes you can get in on the 2nd or 3rd try, just did 8 try and still didn’t work. This app used to work fully and now my am pretty useless - Been a month since this version was released and no fix in sight.
Nahikuan - Terrible
How does this app have such good reviews? It has sucked for awhile now because of the constant updates, but it just gets progressively worse with every new update. I just want the number of results for a product I search, the feature when I would hit the home button and it would refresh my homepage, and for my products to be labeled correctly when it’s not available. Is that so much to ask for developers? With the newest “update” I can no longer manage my recommendations anymore. What is going on in the developer’s minds? Y’all need to get it together.
*Update: I stand by my statements. It just get worse with every “update”.
Whoever is in charge of updates on this app need to be fired immediately. Every update makes this app harder to use and now it’s impossible for me to search for stuff because it just blips out and goes back to the original page. What’s the point of having filters if I can’t search within those filtered results? If I could give this app zero stars. Bettor off just using the search engine.
VIETUAL17 - Forcing people to buy items that they are not ready for.
You have j jeopardized your integrity. You are trying to force people to buy items that they want to save for a later date. I have taken off all the items that I had wanted to buy but at a later time. Now I will not buy those items because I don’t have the time to look through everything again. Forcing people to buy items they are not ready to pay for is a very bad judgment on your part. You better figure out what you can do about it before other people go elsewhere for the same exact items you have but you are trying to force people to get them at a time that they don’t want to get them. Take care and I hope you solve your problems why people are buy less than before
CartKoi - Noticeable UI experience between iPad and iPhone
Apologies if this sounds a bit odd but ... On my iPad units (iPad Pro 1st gen and iPad Air), all product items renders slower and specifically during item previewing, it is extremely sluggish upon selection etc. + if I view a few product videos, the top navigation frame often times will just disappear and I no longer can go back nor select anything to move forward (press the home button and swipe up to close the app).
EFFECTIVELY, the user experience on the iPad has become quite poor and unreliable for quite some time (I finally got around to submitting a review to share it).
INVERSELY, using the app on my iPhone 12, it works quite reliably well as expected. In fact, I often use my iPad to view some products ‘on the big gear screen’ as needed but end up using my iPhone to wrap up and make the purchases. Hopefully someone on the app dev side can look into this odd scenario. Thank you
Cat2214 - DRIVERS WILL PUT PACKAGE NEAR DOGS IF YOU HAVE ANY
Im only giving this rating because this has been a three time experience. You guys took away the option of how we want our packages handled. I have a roommate with a dog who is usually in the front of the yard. Hes very friendly but will EAT THE PACKAGES AND TEAR UP/EAT THE PRODUCT. For some reason the drivers will put the package where the dog can get it.( we have a sitting bench to where the dog cant even reach, on our porch but the drivers still decide to put it in front of the door where the dog can reach) One of the drivers even put it on the ground and took a picture of the dog like that was something i was okay with?!? Like heads up if you have dogs who like to chew on packages, the drivers will leave it where your dog can get it. Theres absolutely no way to tell the drivers on their app either so this is why im giving this rating because the drivers continue to do this thinking its cute but its making me lose money on product that isnt being handled correctly.
Tea_berry - Doesn’t work well on my iPad
Edit: reviews started working well, but just today I can no longer use the app on my iPad 12.9” as the add to cart section is cut off from view! I think my husband will be happy I can’t purchase anything right now 😂. There is also a white bar across the bottom. Both portrait and landscape modes are broken. Very bad, I can’t be the only person impacted by this??
I don’t know what happened but it’s terrible on my iPad now. I noticed the change maybe a month or so ago. Tapping the reviews button doesn’t work. I have to scroll down to that section manually now. There’s always a section of the page that just shows loading..., loading... these behaviors are consistent. it’s behaving like a poorly designed website that’s not taking into account I’m using a tablet. How is this acceptable?? Was this even tested?? Edit: the top bar vanishes when I browse around sometimes when loading a video of the product and then go back, the top bar vanishes. Can’t believe this is still not fixed. 0 stars
WillGPo - App periodically flashes to a white screen
While attempting to view and scroll through the detail of a product, either from my saved products or from a new search, the app will periodically flash to a blank white screen, and just stay there. If I hit the back arrow, instead of returning to the product that I was trying to view, the app either returns me to the beginning of my saved products screen or to the search bar. It is very frustrating, because then I need to restart the process of relocating the product… either by scrolling though my saved products list or initiating a new search. I am running the latest version of the App on an iPhone 13 Pro, but it also happens on an older iPhone 7, also running the latest version of the App. I hope the product developers will see this feedback and take steps to correct. It has been an ongoing issue for months, now. I tried to submit feedback to the developers through the App Store, but the link just dumps me to Amazons general support page.
Tee den - Ratings after items received
There needs to be a comment section after rating delivery service to add personal comments. Existing ratings are to general and needs to be individualize to each recipients experience. Giving the company insight on improvement.I recently had an item left at my side door as I specified luckily I noticed my delivery alert and retrieved my package, although I feel the service was good I believe the package should have been placed as close to the door or home as possible rather than further away to prevent possible theft..it was very similar to placing an item on the front stoop for any and everyone to see the goal to make it as inconspicuous as able.. not to place it in the middle of the walk way as to alert others. This may be something that’s already stressed,But again adding a comment section might improve deliveries .
Come on amazon - Annoying.
Hands down the most annoying thing about this app is trying to see reviews left on products. God forbid you try to open a photo to view a product and swipe through other photo reviews. That would be too simple. You have to open and close each picture to see them, even if they’re part of the same review. However, if you look at the view all feature, there’s suddenly no problem in swiping through photo reviews. Makes no sense.
Also, can’t tell you how many times I’ve been scrolling quickly through products and accidentally swipe the screen and lose my place since I’m forced to move back a screen. The app is so sensitive that just a simple caress and I’m no longer reading product descriptions and I’m back at the home page.
You would think that a company that makes billions of dollars almost every day can afford to pay to have better app integration and UI/UX, or, you know, pay their employees more.
K @ NorCal - My homepage icon bar with the home, profile and shopping cart icon as fallen and it can’t get up
HELP! It’s driving me crazy. A few days ago my homepage icon bar with the home, profile and shopping cart icon as fallen to the bottom of my page and I cannot move it back to the top. I’ve reinstalled app, changed my password, google searched, called customer service and they told me to leave a review on the App Store and I will be contacted by the developer. It drives me crazy because I cannot see through the bar and it gets in the way of scrolling and viewing my page. In the last few days it’s changed back and forth at random. Every time I think it’s fixed, it’s not long before it changed again. I do nothing different, what gives? Most importantly, HELP!!!!
KJS53 - Latest version is extremely frustrating to use
The most recent upgrade makes shopping very frustrating two major reasons: 1 you have either hidden or removed easy access to the share option when viewing detailed information for a product, and 2 your search engine refuses to honor filtering requests that attempt to limit purchase options for a given product line.
I often serve as a consultant for others asking for purchasing suggestions in my areas of expertise. This requires me to share the information with my clients. Your lack of a obvious share option forces me to use a web browser to get a link that can be easily share is a pain. Why are you afraid to allow an easily accessed share option on a product’s information page?
When requesting option for a product type based upon brand, I DO NOT want to see products from other brands, I ONLY want to see options from the the brand selected in the filter. The filter was chosen for a reason, please honor it.
Vdrumpro999 - Search is awful
Update: search is still useless. iPad app is crap.
Update: still awful. You can type an item title in word for word and STILL never find the item. I absolutely hate how crippled the search is. They want to steer you to certain products. You can’t use search tools like dog toys -cat -cats -food to keep the keyword spammers out You can’t filter by same day ship. “Add up to $35 worth” welll it’s real hard to do that when you don’t let us search by that criteria. You get different results depending on the search order. Filter by price-lowest and th search results CHANGE they just aren’t resorted. You can’t use “search only” or a model number. Type a model, the singular, 100% unique, ONLY model number you want and it will throw you a million non related results. You can’t use quotes to restrict a search like “Sony headphones” or will simply show you all headphones. It’s so AGGRAVATING THAT I OFTEN HAVE TO SHOP ON EBAY BECAUSE I CAN’T FIND THE ITEM IN THE WASTELAND OF UNRELATED RESULTS. What I hate the most is KNOWING This is Not a bug, it’s very much on purpose.
Westeri - New UI is bloated and broken
The new UI is terrible. Instead of tidy text menus I have to scroll through a whole page of visual lists with horizontally scrolling images . It takes so long to find anything now. It’s overwhelming and uses so much space that often the thing I’m looking for is beyond the bottom of the screen. Having a fixed menu on the bottom is just bad design. Less vertical space and not where people look for a menu.
It also rotates to portrait orientation on every screen change. How did QA miss that? This app is nearly unusable on iPad now. If it’s the same bloated UI on the phone I feel sorry for phone users having to scroll endlessly to find what they’re looking for. The UX team needs to do more research before they roll out another frustrating redesign. Design should make life easier. If users have to put in more effort (more scrolling, more searching the screen, tapping through more options) then it’s bad design.
Smileaf - Recent version has orientation bugs
I’ve searched the webpage for a way to report a bug to no avail.
I always keep my iPad in landscape mode. Recently upon opening it switches to portrait mode, sometimes cutting off the bottom half the screen as if it doesn’t exist.
I have to tilt my iPad to portrait and then back to landscape which sometimes fixes it, most of the time the cutting of the screen gets worse or it ignores that I did anything and laughs in my face.
I just tried to submit a review and noticed it also for some reason had zoomed in on the page a bit cutting off right side of the screen. I could see it if I pinched the view in, but I couldn’t scroll right or keep it zoomed out which made writing the review extremely difficult.
As-is the app is nearly unusable for me and until its fixed I’ll be forced to use the web interface which isn’t quite as nice to use as the app.
Reiskameraad - What happened to the app??
It’s become a carbon copy of the website on my iPad Pro, and I absolutely hate its cluttered appearance. Why have this “roll over image to view detail”, when I could so easily pinch and zoom the high definition images in the previous versions? Why can’t I scroll through images anymore, instead having to go back each time to click one by one? Who thinks that this is progress??? Bring the old version back! It was much easier to navigate!
Oh! And as was mentioned by so many other customers, what happened to the read reviews link? Used to be so simple. Now it’s like a scavenger hunt to find where you can actually go to read the reviews. I am so disgusted with all this, I’ve actually started using my Walmart app more than ever before.
ZachtheRed - Progressively worse
More and more it’s harder to find things I know are available due to the results bringing up all sorts of things that have nothing to do with my search. The filters consistently remove items which makes it harder to compare without going through tons of pages. So many items are listed multiple times with no difference in price, seller, item, or prime availability which only makes searching tedious. Lately when I search for something I’ve bought it’s no longer at the top of results but gets removed from my list which is inconvenient. Finally the new layout to me is objectively worse for functionality but was pushed through because it looks “nicer” to whoever developed it. It loads slower, less shows up on the screen due to everything being 50% larger for some reason, and has made it slower browsing. Now I’ll be less likely to use the app to buy things more spur of the moment and buy fewer more necessary items on desktop.
Yumi103 - Best App Ever!
Amazon’s App and Website is fantastic. But there app is wonderful. You can shop for anything at the top of your fingers. There app is easy to us and have great products and have a lot different items. It’s so easy to use and the app is well organized. You are able to track and see where your packages at without any hassle. And your packages come in time just like it will say when you order something. They nail it on delivery timing. I love this app and everyone I know loves it and I would recommend this and and having a prime member is great too but even without one you can still get whatever you are pretty much looking for. So I rate this app five stars. And my packages are on time and handled with care and the people you deliver are nice and respectful.
Gutierrez037 - Frustrating
I have been using this app for a couple of year now and everything was going fine until this year. I have tried to order twice and I haven’t received either or the packages. The first time I got a full refund but the second time they told me I got a refund and never actually gave me my money back. I tried telling customer service but I don’t think they believe me and i don’t know why. They told me I got my refund back but when you look at my gift card balance it’s 0. I haven’t ordered anything since I placed that order so I don’t know where the money went. I have been having such a hard time trying to communicate my problem to them but they just don’t seem to understand or want to believe me. I also tried sending them screenshots to show them I wasn’t lying but the email they gave me didn’t work. Then they said they would give me a $5 gifts card and I never got it either. This app has been frustrating me so much lately. I just want my packages.
Mad Caddy - Poor practice
Not that anyone reads these things…
This is the second time making this since the first time was deleted… ensure you type it in a note 1st so that you can save it, and paste it in, FYI.
The top of my list of grievances is the poor algorithm filter for arrival date. if I filter and item search for items that arrive tomorrow, I should see a list of items that arrive tomorrow. instead what I see is 90% of the products say not even tomorrow usually the next day or later. Why are they in my list? Good question… It’s because of a “pay wall”. (It’s a thing just look at Twitter.) The have an option for expedited shipping next day if you pay $2.99. If I want to pay for expedited shipping that should be an alternate. It should not appear in my primary method of filtering. In other words, I only want items to appear in my search that are actually dedicated to arrive tomorrow. If that means I get one item or 10 items or zero. That’s fine, just don’t inundate me with products I can’t get when I want them.
Also since I’m airing my dirty laundry, the products sold or have such terrible quality from places like China. most people hocking them off of wish or Alibaba stocking up and selling them here. Thanks for fattening China’s economy… Real patriots we are. I have bought and will not anymore. It sickens me.
IARA0987654321 - Remember when you said…
Making me wait just because I asked not to wow thanks y’all still proving me right thanks for that making me go on 3-4 hour bus ride just to pay $5 for two of them and having to bring them back one way or another. And what if they’re out then I have to search the whole state just because I asked you because it helps my asthma not to make me wait..:. I’m not impressed guys you have so much potential and then you go and do this. Remember what Owen and everyone would say we have to keep numbers up and do over time because these people pay for prime and shipping so we must have this much productivity to get these shipments out on time that’s why you
Can not put the tape and sku in the wrong place then as Owen once worked during my break then made me redo my packages over for no reason then I knew he didn’t want me to look like I didn’t know.. and I’ve gotten packed with the sku on the side so please stop being personal and do it right like you
Booner2222 - 2 Day Shipping for Prime members is B.S.
Let me first say that I have been a long time Prime member and like the convenience of the range of products available. I also loved the fact that 2 day shipping actually took 2 days.
Recently, today in fact, I’m in the mountains on a camping trip. I ordered a camera to capture the memories from the trip. This order was on Wednesday and guaranteed by Friday and was to be delivered to the campground. It’s now Saturday and my package is set to arrive at the campground that I will be leaving on Sunday a day after I leave on Monday. What a hassle. I have to make arrangement s to have the packaged shipped to my house taking more time and money. This is not the first time for being burned on guaranteed 2 day shipping. Going to start using Walmart app as they actually have 2 day shipping at no additional price.
Dwgvs - Horrible
The app is horrible. Better to use the web site, but it has a lot of issues too. Tracking from the app isn’t accurate and it wont let you copy the tracking number to paste it into the carriers web site for tracking so you have to type it in manullay going back and forth between screens, or go to the web site and there you can copy and paste it. The search engine is getting more and more difficult to find what you are looking for. Type in one thing and you get 100 returns from products that have nothing to do with what you were searching for. Search for a product by a specific manufacturer and you might get it, 30-40 results down after they have tried to sell you 30-40 different things than what you were looking for. They really need to get a grip on this as if they don’t people will start looking elsewhere for products because this place is getting too difficult to find what your looking for.
Jjbird2021 - Orders
For some reason I talked myself into buying the prime membership and before I started my subscription I always received my packages on time. Ever since I I have started paying for membership, all my packages are be delayed and never give m a reason why they are late. Also trying to get in touch with a customer representative is ridiculous, every time I send a message asking why my package is being delayed they always responded with an automated message most packages arrive the next day. Well it’s been two days and I still have not received my package, but no one seems to know the location of. Makes me question why I pay for prime membership, if the package can’t be delivered on time or even make it to my home.
Islandguy80 - Worthless overseas garbage!
I bought a 2nd generation, night and day, scope for a couple hundred dollars, wasn’t expecting much but I had bought the same thing from Facebook and it came with the 3, 65 mm, 3.7 volt batteries and a charger. It didn’t last long at all, the viewing screen, which takes 2 of those weird batteries and a 3rd in what looks like a flashlight, but shines an invisible laser through the back of your viewing screen, hence, also into your eyes. Well it was cool seeing in the dark, even just for a day. So I open these 2! Was going to give one to my son to put on his .22 to go raccoon hunting. However after spending almost $400, not only did I not get a Single battery, but no charger either, so two 4 packs and two chargers was as much as a third night vision scope, advertised as “install and go see in the dark, so disgusted with a man who has almost 400 Billion, that he needs another $160, for batteries you can’t buy in America, only China! Ridiculous
AFleet9 - Would let my light bill be overdue before I got rid of my Prime membership
They have the absolute best customer service of literally any company I have ever dealt with! No matter if a wrong or defective item was accidentally sent they take care of everything seamlessly! I just can’t say enough good about them! I order several times a week and I’m never disappointed with this app even when wrong items are sent they have the most courteous customer service team and being a prime member has so many perks! I get to read amazing books for free and so much more! Thank you for being my go to place for absolutely everything I need! Not only do they have everything I need but for great prices and the fastest delivery!!
KitKatAd - Late
I ordered something for a friends birthday and was expecting it on Thursday (today). It’s running late and got delayed till Saturday or Sunday! This may seem like a small delay but this friends birthday is on Saturday and I will be extremely busy on Saturday, so I will likely come back late to receive it Saturday evening. At that point my friends birthday is pretty much over. The worst part is that for free shipping it would have been delivered on Saturday, but I paid $6 extra just to have it arrive two days early, and what do you know I pay extra and it arrives the same time it would have if I got free shipping. I know because of Covid there has been many problems with shipping but this is still very irritating. Overall though, still a good app if you can afford having a few orders delayed (luckily my other two orders came on time)
Loppmngxv - Charged me twice so declined card
So I purchased an order made up of 3 things.. my card was charged the next day & said the 3 things would be delivered the following Wednesday.. a couple days later I get an email saying my payment method was declined. I called customer service & they told me the order was not available in the first warehouse so they tried to charge me again from another warehouse which is where my card declined. It was a pretty pricey order & it is right here at Christmas so no I did not have that amount in my bank account to cover it AGAIN. Customer service told me I had to either input another form of payment to cover the charge again or I’d have to cancel the order. So now I’ve had to cancel it, wait for a refund, & then order it again… so my items (MY KIDS CHRISTMAS) probably won’t be here on time. These big companies don’t care about the little people.
Riva Petrash - Filters reset and starts back at first page every time I select a product and return to the listings
Every time I click a product for details and then go back to the listings, I cannot continue scrolling from where I left off because it always goes back to the beginning no matter what page I’m on. Not only that, but it resets any filters or sorting preferences that I had selected for my search. This is a new and extremely frustrating issue, I’ve had the app for many years and this is the first time it’s happened. It’s quite a simple issue, but it’s to the point that it’s easier to shop elsewhere because i dont want to restart the shopping search every time I want to add a product to my cart. Please do something about this I don’t know if it’s just me or some small thing in the latest update but either way it has a large impact and it needs to be resolved.
Sethcane - What’s with the share sheet
For as long as this app has been on iOS / iPadOS you would think they would have added a share sheet option. For some reason they add it to iOS but not to iPadOS which make no sense.
Most of the time I wanna see things on a bigger screen and maybe even share it to a friend. Would be nice to just have the share sheet come up.
I have to go through the email option, highlight the link, find the share option under the highlight menu, then and only then do I get the share options I want to use.
That is a lot of steps just to share something on iPad. I mean come on now not many people want to use the email to send links to people. They want to use their app of choice. Again this seems to be only an iPadOS issue since I know I can get to the share sheet on iOS.
Please fix this!!
CowtownGirl76 - Unreliable search results and product ratings
Considering Amazon’s vast tech resources and net worth, this app is a huge disappointment.
One of the biggest problems for me is the abuse of the review system. There are products with hundreds or thousands of five Star reviews which are obviously fake. If you look at the users review history you can see the user has posted the exact same review for different products. How does Amazon’s AI not catch this??
Another bug is sometimes there are several reviews for the wrong product mixed in with the product you are viewing, as if the product IDs got mixed up at some point. For example, a fish tank might have multiple reviews and photos for a travel pillow. Totally unrelated products got their reviews mixed together. This means the average star rating must be wrong.
Overall, product star ratings are unreliable if these issues are not fixed.
A few other annoyances of the app are:
- They removed infinite scroll in search results. You are forced to click “Next”, and shown paid ads at the bottom of the search results. At least let us increase the number of results per page.
- Filters functionality keeps changing. And there should be a way to set your own defaults for filtering and sorting.
- The default sort order for Searches is to show “Featured” products first. I’m assuming this is so they can charge sellers to appear at the top of the list.
Natispa - Inaccurate delivery date
I’ve been using this app and company for years now and it’s been all good and well, but not without issues. My main issue is that when you go to purchase something, it gives you a delivery date window, which I use to see if it will be delivered on a day that I’m off of work. But once the order is processed, it ALWAYS gives a different delivery estimated window. I understand that estimations are estimations, but the fact that it’s always incorrect is quite frustrating, and I’d rather not have an initial estimation at all. I’d like to be home for the delivery, or at least be able to change my options if not. I go back to see if I can pick it up at a locker instead and it doesn’t even give me that option. It’s just disappointing. Otherwise, everything else works as intended.

ABassett - Best shopping app!
I honestly don’t see why this app has such a low rating. I’ve been using it for a few months now and I’ve had no dramas. Everything is easy to find, it’s inexpensive to buy, it arrives early or on time which is a huge deal when you live rur, and my wishlists always work. I love being able to subscribe for regular items like nappies, and find things I wouldn’t usually find in retail stores (especially living rural!) The app has never glitched and I’ve had ZERO dramas.
JamesH14 - Stop hiding the cheapest prices!
The app is okay, but in a recent update they streamlined the way that wishlists appear so the items in the list only show the prime price, which is not always the cheapest! To check the cheapest buying option you now have to click on each individual item, which makes it impossible to quickly check your list for price drops.
I stopped using the app and started just using the mobile web page to get around this but now they’ve done the same on the mobile page layout too! So frustrating.
Also, it would be nice if you could change the default sorting option for wishlists.
Salman Dharani - Account Suspended
Extremely dissatisfied with the service. I had contacted to customer service to recover my old account but no help from anyone. Instead they asked me to close all the accounts and reopen the account again. When i tried to reopen the account then it gave me an error stating the account already exist. This is bound to happen; however i contacted to resolve this issue now and another representative recommended some steps which eventually took me to square 1 again. At the end, the representative have asked me to create a new email address to overcome this. I did this too yesterday and today i see that the new account is locked as well due to misuse of account. This is extremely frustrating and disappointing. Can someone look into this ASAP??
Coolmore Mercury - International Deliveries.
Hi I have shopped with you since the day you launched in Australia. I am happy with your selection and also notice new sellers and new product.
But the only bottleneck seems to the products from USA and UK. The deliveries are like 1-3 months ! Sometimes they don’t even deliver and claim they did. Gaped atleast on 6 occasions. You have refunded whenever you can but sometimes you can’t especially book sellers from USA and UK.
Hopefully you resolve these issues. I can’t lay the blame squarely on you. Perhaps a suggestion would be to ensure your suppliers are honest and legitimate. I will still give you 5 stars.
Sevenbabes777 - Large variety very convenient
I love the way you can find anything on here. If I seen something advertised on Facebook or Instagram or on the net. And it’s from overseas and you know it’s going to take awhile to receive it from there. I just copy and paste the items description and I always seem to find it here. The delivery is also pretty quick. Even more so if you have prime. I gave it 4 stars because sometimes the prices are more expensive then other retailers. Although there are times it’s cheaper with some things.
Rafe Deep - Simple Organised App - PERFECT APP
I do not normally bother to write reviews but this app deserves it. It is clean, organised and a pleasure to use. When I’m waiting for an order it takes me literally 2 secs to open and check when it’ll arrive Instead of,
1. Tediously opening email
2. Typing in ‘Track Order’
3. Realised I haven’t saved the tracking number and having to start all over again.
Bhffhjf - Thieves!!
I had used the app while using their gift cards to make purchases. Then suddenly they put my account on hold until I “verified” my credit card details.
I have never purchased anything with my credit card, informed them of this.
They ask for proof of purchase of the grift cards. To which I forwarded copies of my receipts of the gift cards.
Then they shut the account down anyway, and held the $300 I had loaded onto the account. They refuse to give the funds back, even though I have receipts for all of the money that is owed.
Absolutely criminal behaviour, and when I call to have it resolved, I get the answer of “we can’t do anything”.
RNJaxofhearts - Information data brokers
nothing but spam emails and phone calls and as use of the data you sell off to - other entities - leverage if of information for profit yet proper security is a joke sharing with partners and cand business revenue llano rate to perform profiling for profit yet don’t off set the data grab with a reputable employer reputation not a customer aware and nor responsive to complaints at its best didn’t get my loo paper nor twice having come out of my account to take subscription o job price 15 dollars to 40 rolls ! not worth the removal of our privacy and our right to a profit made of our back fair price for loss off person info
Shop-a-holic Penguin - Received 2 different shoe sizes now price is higher and no restitution
I’ve wasted over an hour going around in circles on this app and prices are calculated differently depending on which end of the cycle you end up in. Very frustrating. I received 2 different boot sizes in my order and now I have to run around to return the order, re order the item at a higher price and wait up to another month to receive them. If an incorrect order is sent out, it should be standard practice to send out the correct order at the same price initially paid and include express delivery free of charge. Very disappointing.
/)"- - Help
Can you guys bring back searching with a photo? Like being able to upload an image or using a generic photo to image search? I do not always have what I want to search on hand to look up, and if your looking for similar items it’s easier to use a stock photo rather than my blurry pictures, you Know?
Lovehopelaugh - Provide a back function after purchase.
Since the update a few months ago, I am unable to go back to the list of items I was searching for once I make a purchase. I have to go back to the “home” section and retype what I was searching for and scroll down to where I left off in order to continue browsing the list. Please bring back the “back” function so I can continue browsing from where I left off before I made the purchase.
Maryke56 - Delivery
Most of my orders come from the US and delivery to Australia is always prompt and efficient. Items are dispatched and arrive in Australia within 3 days even with passing through customs. However that’s where it stops because our Australia Post is so slow and inadequate it may take another week or two to arrive.
Gallagaf - Shipping and international purchases confusing
I like the variety but unfortunately the international shipping and prices can be confusing. Even when profile is set to Australia and Australian dollars I still seem to get items not ship to Australia and International currency in my searches. I only receive the notifications at the end of the purchase process that they can not be shipped to me and or the price converts to Australian dollars
Bendy-himiko - My order that I have recently bough are gone from the recent order in my account
Idk what happen but the orders that I had saved or I had bought had where in a recent order are gone also my search history is also gone and it’s a bit annoying because I bought something and it’s still been shipped and I can’t track it because it’s not in my recent orders no more
Edit: nvm I my stuff is still there apparently my county setting was set to USA and not Australia
CamzaManza - Lost my Wishlist
Had a wish list with all the books I wanted to buy. Probably 50 books on it and then with the update it all disappeared? Not sure how many types of Wish Lists there are too because I have a separate wish list with only a few items.
LuisEnriqueUribeFreitas - Best app I ever used
So, my little brother wanted a vecna costume and I found the best fit for him so it delivered for 4-5 days and it finally came, nothing was wrong but it was a bit big for my little brother but we solved the problem, I recommend you getting this app and none of the other apps like wish and yeah.
Beeettthhh - Logged out lost basket
The app logged me out for no reason. I didn’t realise. It defaulted me to US site. When I went to check out it got me to log back in, lost my entire basket of stuff coz then switched me to UK. ffs. One item I added there a week ago I can’t remember what it was. Don’t log ppl and and don’t empty their baskets without asking, SIMPLE.
Sairyseast - Needs work
Limited search, filtering and sorting, results rarely match in relevance. Clicking on a store/sold by does not always go to the seller page, instead performing a new search on what appears to be an autocorrected brand search closest to the seller name? App Resets whenever minimised and does not support split screen ,so adding addresses from contacts or other windows is a lengthy and frustrating exercise. No distinction between currencies e.g us/au dollar. I could go on, but suffice to say it just doesnt seem tested.
Jdjebnfikrndnd - Just another online store/app
Was excited to know they were opening here in Australia, knowing they have lots of products on their US site. I expected them to bring in products from other parts of the world like their US counterpart. Sadly, they are just another “online store”, nothing special and new to bring to Oz consumers, selling products that can also be found on other Oz sites.
MENIO2005 - App doesn’t show wish lists
Even though I’ve had my wish lists set up for years, the app all of a sudden stopped showing them which is extremely inconvenient and annoying. I’ve deleted the app and installed it again and logged in again but to no avail. In other words, the app is rendered useless as there’s no point in finding stuff you want to buy if you’re being unable to add them to your list for future purchase. Oh well, fewer purchases will be made on this platform which is probably a very good thing.
Mgracedawg - Very badly made
This app is glitchy, very slow and not very user friendly. There’s no option for done when filling out information just a back button which doesn’t make sense. Also I’m wanting to select items just from Australia but only gives me the option of world wide, so when I have things in my cart I go to checkout and then it converts to USD, it’s very deceiving. I want to shop on here but I can’t unless I go through all the products and check out to see it’s it’s from aus or usd.
Secretsailorscout - Eat the rich
Jeff bezos makes roughly $2,489 a SECOND, meaning he makes his average warehouse workers salary every 12 seconds. It would take an estimated 300 billion to stop climate change, so if teamed up with Zuckerberg, gates and buffet, they could do it and each have 66.5 billion left each. He has more than enough money, he could do so many great things for the world but instead he decides to take vanity trips to NEARLY space. Not only is he greedy, he’s also overworks his workers. If you can, I urge you to buy what you need from somewhere else.
MarknobleRE - The only app that is worse is iTunes
Seriously guys, you are one of the biggest players in the tech space. Surely you have the skills within your organisation to provide your clients with an app that is intuitive and easy to use.
I am a Prime member. You keep taking my money but I can’t access prime TV. There is nowhere obvious on the app where I can find out why or how to speak to a human being.
That kind of feels like you are stealing from me. Not happy. I am only rating you one star because I cannot give you none.
Pacman Sam - Under performs
I am surprised how clunky this software giants app is. Such as the updating credit card details which see the info from a picture on the card and then doesn’t continue. The use my shipping address button doesn’t work if you leave and come back to the page all progress is lost. I can’t seem to contact supplier of my late product instead I click contact us button that leads me in circles.
Tom 502726285072 - Everything in the Aus store is a total rip off
I’m sick of how much effort I need to put in to just not get scammed on basic items. The last straw one for me recently was a Violin mute, a small basic piece of rubber. It was $4.95 locally if I drive across town, $5 plus $10 shipping if I’m on the US store but $48 in the Aus store. Everything is like this, I spend so long looking into products and researching them just to not get scammed and end up not ordering anything. Extremely frustrating and painful, would not recommend.
Hecatonchires - Too much noise in search results
When I am search for a specific part number, as evidenced by wrapping it in quotes, I do not want to see every possible manipulation of that value returned. I want to see that part. If you don’t have it - no results is the correct result. Eg: when searching for a JST connector, there are different ranges. JST-XH, JST-PH, JST-XHR. WHEN I ASK EXPLICITLY FOR A, DO NOT OFFER ME B OR C.
When I exclude a term from search by putting a minus in front of it, I DONT’ EXPECT TO SEE IT IN THE RESULTS. Eg: when searching for electronics connectors, a pitch of 2.54 is. VERY DIFFERENT to 2.0
GraceFis - Best app in the world!!!!
You have everything I need and sometimes the stuff can be overpriced and sometimes not but other than that, this app is fantastic! For me, no bugs nor glitches! Thanks for making this app!
Testinggirl - Can’t zoom in on photos!
The app is missing the essential functionality you can get on the website: zooming in on pictures to see more detail about what you’re purchasing.
And I don’t mean a controlled zoom either (like some sites allow you to click an area of a photo & they open a square loupe window with just that bit zoomed in. I mean just using a browser you can manually zoom in on any area of the whole page to see whatever you want more clearly.
For that reason I don’t use the app, as it’s way too hard to see what you’re purchasing!
Every so often I check the app to see if this has been implemented & when they do I might use it, until then it’s the website for me.
TiginAus - Hopelessly inaccurate search feature
You’d have thought that they would have an amazing app. But it’s terrible
I’m so tired of it sending up options that say sorry this item can’t be sent to your country, or you search for a charger and it shows up cables. How about (1) the default option is stuff that can be bought by the shopper and (2) show options that actually match the search criteria?
Rex651234 - Hard to find help, feedback and support
This app is okay if you are lucky enough to find what you want and to order it. For everything else, finding your way around is pretty poor. Finding the chat help, finding contact us, finding support is difficult, maybe deliberately so. The overall impression is you’re on your own if you have a problem with anything else.
SJBaillie81 - Zero customer service
Absolutely terrible service , lock me out of my account, unable to get hold of anyone in Australia to do anything about it , lock me out of my prime account and keep taking money for fees , tells me to update information but then turns that into a new account get half way through and says that this email already in use then locks me out again. Absolutely the worst company on the whole entire planet I’ve ever had to deal with .
SFC Films - Great app, needs improvement
This a great app. Very easy to navigate and purchase. Check out is a no brainer. However few things missing that’s available on the web app, like purchasing kindle books. I suggest making improvements to bring it in par with the web app.
Miaaa 7 - COSTS SO MUCH MONEY
I was scrolling through my phone and I wanted to surprise my child (she’s 8 years old) I was looking for a set of new fidgets and all I found was one flipping octopus is 13 dollars wth maybe change the price but overall it was amazing
Lahore103 - Cumbersome search
Search is unnecessarily made too cumbersome. Few items listing on one page. No option of all searched items on one page. And if you are, say, on 10th page and open an item and want to come back to 10th page again, it would take you to first page instead, every time. And exhausts you after only a few item views. And one would prefer to switch to other shopping apps.
RayFirth - My eyes!
App works generally pretty well, but it is still missing a feature that should always be available in 2022 in every app, dark mode.
Please end our pain & make this simple change AZN, I can continue ordering products if my eyes don’t work anymore.
Sheesh no nikname - Please fix this bug
The app is good but i made a list and i had all of the stuff I wanted in it but for some reason when i opened the app after keeping it closed for a while my list was gone idk why i cant find anything from the stuff that I wanted now overall good shopping app just a little bugs
StevenJWorth - Brilliant online service
Fantastic prices and availability of hard to find products
Ease of use of the website
This is why I’ve been a customer for many years!
_Shikhar - Can’t login to another device
Are you guys serious? I can’t login into my other device due to this idiotic notification thing. Like seriously someone’s goal sheet is implemented and it’s the worst update ever. Thanks for this that now I can’t even see my order and track it.
Moodymoo122 - Kindle purchases
I just want to be able to buy books that are advertised!
The app will let me get a sample but then I can’t down load the whole book! This will happen for about 5 books in a row!
Please make an option where you can only see what books are available for download/ purchase in your country rather than advertise to me what is available overseas but not let me buy it!
Matthkayla - This app is the best
It’s a really good app, I used to have it on my phone and now I’m downloading it here, but, the longest something has took was only 2 weeks, and it’s not that expensive unlike other apps, and it’s a really good app!
Ranjankumar10 - Issue with signing in with notification
I am not able to sign in on another browser because of an issue with how the notification is managed in the app. I receive notification. But when I click on that I get message that something went wrong. I have this issue and can’t login on another device
Gaspode at large - Estimated delivery changes after confirmation of purchase
I have a prime subscription and I find if purchasing an item using “Buy now” it will say in the summary screen “get it by 2nd July, free expedited delivery”, but after I swipe to confirm the transaction summary changes to “guaranteed delivery 3rd July”. Very annoying as the shipping address I want it sent to depends on the day of the week it is expected to arrive.
Polonglong - Bank details
I just have a question,how do I delete my other bank account details,since I only want to use one of them,4 bank account details show.
Kittens24 - I loved this app until yesterday!
I use this app almost every day. I browse and add things to my lists and regularly order online using the app. I have been really happy with it until now.
The recent update however, has bugs. With the latest update I find myself bashing the buttons which are now half the time unresponsive, like the top right icons (including search and cart). The see all lists link now only works sometimes as well.
I have NEVER had this problem with any previous version. I am constantly force quitting the application in hopes of stopping this from happening, but so far there is no pattern to when it will work or not. Really frustrated!
Until this is fixed I can only give the app the minimum star rating.
Shashi_S. - Deals dashboard bug - displaying in Japanese
Hi. The deals dashboard recently started showing up in Japanese even though the country selected is Australia and Language as English...and all other pages show correctly in English. Japanese is not even a supported language by the app if you select the country as AU so don't understand what's suddenly changed. Please fix urgently as this has literally made the deals dashboard unusable to people who can't read Japanese.
Gymjunkgirl15 - Impressive retail service so far
Good range of both grocery & other home/electronics, good price esp when there is a promotion. Most importantly fast & reliable delivery service & AI enabled shopping recommendations that easily beat other retailers.
Daveannazara - Know what I want.
Clear and simple to use. Has everything I want or need. Any problems are quickly fixed. Nothing too much trouble. Possibly the best app I use.
Softstones - Site is good. Delivery is usually fast
Sometimes I would like to order products by delivery time. It would greatly enhance my experience, and increase my purchases if I can easily find the items that will arrive first.
Anonymous3008 - Good but could be improved
It is a great app in general just needs a few improvements like a dark theme would be nice and also a way to switch or make it easier to switch between countries or just the general app without a specific country.
Daaaaannn - Update locked my base iPhone 6 out of the app due to iOS 13 requirement
As a user with an older phone I am no longer able to use this app whatsoever as they have updated it to require the iOS 13 operating system (non compatible with iPhones 6 and earlier). Honestly just annoyed that it allowed me to update in the first place as the app was working fine before and I have no way to roll back. UPDATE THE APP AT YOUR OWN RISK.

IEMNERD - Great app for Canadians
Flawless app, works great w/ prime shipping is super fast plus you get to use prime video!
Alo41x - What just happened?
I love the amazon app. I use it to buy almost anything I want or need. I know that I can trust them with my information and bringing my packages on time. However in this new update something must have glitched. All of my information has been wiped. My order history (I have 4 orders on their way and now I’ve lost the ability to track them), Wish lists, and items in my cart that I’ve saved for later. That’s only what I’ve noticed, I bet my cards and shipping address is gone too. I bet amazon is trying to fix it but it’s still very inconvenient.
Grailx3 - Integrate Amazon Echo App into this app
Can you please either integrate the ECHO app into this one or release the Amazon ECHO app in Canada... I have multiple Echos and can't update the app... You have it available in other countries I don't understand why we can't have it here...
Danochka90 - Love Amazon
I love everything about Amazon, you guys have amazing customer service, I was always able to resolve my issues….the only down side once I make a purchase I get a confirmation email and before the email would have a picture and description of what I bought which made it easier to Navigate if I needed a certain receipt but now it’s only order number and amount…so I have to go back and forth to the app to the email check the numbers…please bring back the receipt with a picture and description of what I buy!!!!
Some_Guy__ - Useless release notes always
Every update always has the most vague release notes ever (“bug fixes and improvements”). So you never know what you’re going to get when you update. I wish Apple would force devs to provide accurate, meaningful descriptions of their updates. I want to know what I am installing on my device and choose why I install it, not just blindly trust everything Amazon releases like a sheep.
Sam00024 - New Update
Please go back to the old look. This one is very hard to look at and navigate. Too bright for dark mode users.
Mingchuedxx - Worst IT support, lock ur account for no reason
Amazon has got arrogant towards its customers. IT malfunction locked my account, called twice, still couldn’t solve and simply asked me to create a new one.
Amazon should die. Go support some new platforms that still know how to respect their precious customers.
Val 800 - What happened?
I liked the app, but today I am getting something completely different...I hate it, can’t find my orders or anything else from my phone. This just happened today.
Bring back the one I had yesterday!
MessyMatt - Amazing
Best online purchasing site out there! Prefer it over eBay and all other sites!
Lynx Spade - Latest Update
Not sure why the today’s deals option was removed I can’t find it anywhere and loved checking those multiple times a day. Please bring it back!! Other than that the latest app is better in a lot of ways
Fine & Excellent - Dark mode is missing
App is great but still dark mode is not available in the app.
SeaDoo666 - Dark mode??
Ça serait bien d’avoir le mode sombre! Votre application est très dur pour les yeux lorsqu’on magasine dans l’obscurité.
Old and not so wise - Cluttered screen
Another unnecessary update with annoying new graphics that overlay the screen that I am trying to read.
Solid_Liquid_Gas Snake - Wow what happened
I loved amazon, and now all of a sudden the app doesn’t work for me. My wish list is gone off the bottom of the app, I wasn’t able to add stuff to my wish list and now I can! What is wrong with you people, why would you try to “improve” something that didn’t have much problems to begin with? Great job Amazon.
Paul113z - Terrible new update! Sad...
Amazon homepage is reduced to nothing except adverts for gift cards, kindle unlimited and some tv shows.
You can’t find the deal of the day on the homepage anymore; recommend products are gone; basically if you’re looking for inspiration on what to buy, you can’t do that anymore since there’s literally nothing that they will show.
Lost a customer Amazon...
45ZER0 - Ugly and buggy
I really don’t like this new blue version of the app. Navigation isn’t intuitive anymore (where are my lists?), there are lots of visual bugs (gray horizontal lines when scrolling pages) and flotting menu wast screen space. Revert to the previous version, please!
Sealyx - Update removes ability to add new item on wishlist by dragging it
It is convenient to drag and drop the wish list item. I hope they add it back
Needytechsavvy - Please work on the DARK THEME
I love the app but I find it hard to shop and browse at night. I wish there is an option for dark theme like most of the apps have nowadays
MmnbGh - Terrible Update
Can’t find “Today’s Deal, Lightening, Upcoming Deals” with the new app. Where is it hiding or is it no longer accessible on the app?
Shanaya Meela - Cannot see reviews
I cannot see the reviews on any of the products anymore. Even when I try to scroll all the way down or click on the stars on the top right of each product (which used to work just fine), the app is not showing me any reviews — only the star ratings for each product. Please fix this!
MarkEldridge - Search engine needs work
Can never find what I want, and end up getting frustrated and abandoning the store.
Standard search engine + and - operations don't seem to work to force incision and exclusion of terms. No property of terms in the order of the search phrase sunbnitted.
It's faster to drive to Walmart than to try fiddling with the search parameters in this app.
Gp909 - Corrupted
Kman1700 - Update Needed
App has become extremely slow and freezes frequently. It is very frustrating.
TonyRiver - Keeps deleting booked pickup times
It’s hard enough to get a pickup time at Walmart for my groceries, but now the app has simply deleted the pickup time I’ve booked. As a result we have not had groceries in 2 weeks. Stop wasting money with TV ads to tell everyone how you are caring for your customers and use the funds to fix your POS app.
Seleena1995 - Awful
The new update won’t let me select other options! For example if I’m looking at a rug and the picture is white, it won’t let me select the black option. No matter what it is, clothes, games, pictures, anything I cannot select any other option than the one that is the preview!
Badakchand_rathore - No dark mode in 2021
Enough said! Give us dark mode and let us shop from our beds while half asleep.
Stacey Thibodeau - Hit or miss for sure
I’m an amazon prime member, I’ve been using this site since November 2019 and I’m the beginning I was beyond impressed with this site, however since February of this year this site has repeatedly taken my money for orders placed that I’m still waiting for, making it a total of 3 orders. Apparently amazon has no problem doing business with companies who rip their loyal customers off bc I tried to contact the seller with no response several times, I went to amazon only to be told it wasn’t purchased from them so they can’t help, witch I’m sorry but how do you have the ability to sell the item through ur site but refuse to take responsibility when things go wrong, that’s just shady if you ask me, amazon sent me a link to request a refund witch I’d already been attempting so basically they did nothing but profit from a customer who already paid a monthly fee, again feels a bit off if you ask me, when your a multi million dollar company and helping a customer get $85 back is too much that’s just not cool, A little loyalty and assistance goes a long way that’s for sure.
Dlafranc - no dark mode
Iphone65555555 - Fix the last app layout
The new bar at the bottom just clutters the screen and is so annoying... please return the cart to the top section!
Sick of renaming - I really hate the new look
From the baby blue gradients to the floating tray at the bottom of the screen, this app screams “GO AWAY!” as soon as I open it. It just looks like a child’s gaming app instead of Amazon. So bad, I just deleted it. Would rather use my mobile web browser than use this app with this update.
Akileshreddy - Why did you guys change it
I dont like the new update
Jt1233 - dark mode
please add dark mode my eyes hurt
*-RedWhitRose-* - Floating menu hindering UX
The floating menu is a nice touch but at the same time it covers 20% of the app working area. This results in viewing restriction on the product landing page including product detail. Users need to constantly scroll to unearth what is below the floating menu. This also makes it difficult to perform screen grab on product images including details to share with friends and family in one go.
Wildhorses73 - Never Delivers on Time!
Paying for Prime membership is a huge waste of money as they NEVER deliver on time and when they mess up orders or shipment dates they like to tell the customer oh it’s your fault! Guaranteed deliver? Don’t believe their lies!! Save your money and don’t bother with the “Prime membership” scam artists!!
CenoTurk - Needs an update
What happened to the wishlist on the bottom & being able to tap and drag items to it?!
And stop changing how search results are displayed! They’re either grid or list. Stop mixing them up, depending on some arbitrary nonsense.
:Gazoo: - Please fix
The app switches from landscape mode to portrait after signing in.
Candycrushplaya682 - Sharing
No share button?
Cruise66 - Site crashes often
What’s up with Amazon lately?!! Browsing for items then all of a sudden it goes to a blank page and you have to start your search all over again!!! Very frustrating when you’re at a few pages down in your search.. needs to be fixed!!
Dylanlittle94 - This app sucks
New app sucks! Can’t find my previous orders,
Markusda - Didn’t get my $5 for downloading
Said I’d get $5 for downloading the amazon app. So I did. My $5 voucher never came.
Very disappointed. Zero stars.
ButteriPhone - Works Well - No Dark Mode
App works well, but it’s late and I’m grumpy and the fact that I can’t shop for anything without having my retinas blasted by a billion lumens of Amazon app whiteness is annoying. So I’ve subtracted two stars. Tell Bezos to hit me up when he’s authorized the use of some funds for a dark mode and I’ll re-adjust my rating. Thanks.
Jacob Shuman - Lord of the rings Splash screen :/
The Amazon app has always been a decent experience for me but the forced lord of the rings splash screen that is forced every time I open the app is pretty irritating. I don’t it showing the first time I open the app but not on every launch of the app! I understand you want to promote the new lotr series but this feels excessive.
Dxgxbsbshzjxhxbdbdbdxnx - Forced ads for prime customers on start up
The app must have updated, I am now getting a forced ad for lord of the rings when I open the app. I am fine with passive ads throughout the app but a forced ad on start up is unacceptable.
MurkBeatz - Ads when booting the app
Uninstalled after seeing ads when booting the app, will use the website from now on since there’s no such pop-ups yet.
Mo.ch1969 - Problems with Sellers
Most thugs on Amazon are really good except sometimes there is problems with sellers. They try to charge you for return shipping fees, bargain with to give you a portion of what you paid for an item instead of your full refund. It’s really terrible and has caused me to start looking at other online apps for shopping.
RandomName1692749201$4 - Absolutely Horrendous
1)In 2021 it's absurd that this app does not have an available dark mode. To make matters worse they've actually gone and thrown in this blaring bright teal blue overlay/top banner to blind you. It's as if they said to heck with people sensitive to bright colours and light. 2) When viewing used or marketplace listings you can't simply scroll through all available options. The first option remains on the screen and everything scrolls underneath it. This is extremely annoying and clunky to navigate. Make it a standard scrollable list. 3) The app has significant stutter and often gets stuck while scrolling with the only way to get out being to close the app and relaunch it. Updated: 4) the app UI progressively gets worse and worse with each subsequent update. Current UI is not intuitive at all - this is just a bad joke at this point... Overall the app is just clunky. For a multibillion dollar company this is a dollar quality app. Amazon needs to get on board with modern design and functionality.
TrueReviewerCanada - Great app but where’s DARK MODE SUPPORT???
Overall great app and very reliable but it STILL doesn’t have a DARK MODE option. So at night in the dark the app blinds you with bright white backgrounds.
Big fail in 2022
Yun-kan - Dark theme
I hear the app is great, I wouldn’t know because I can’t use it. Please include dark theme capabilities in this app.
Dreemy bastid - Was great until the last update
This app used to work as expected, now I can’t browse or view an item for more than 10 seconds without the screen going blank. What is this garbage, fix it instead of sending that bald moron to space.
Darwin's dad - Search feature is horrible
Keyword search brings tons of unrelated products from EVERY category. Can’t pinpoint category like you can on web version. I spent an hour plus searching for a store of product but was shown unrelated items most of the time until I gave up. Fix this issue Amazon.
