Care for some shopping from the palm of your hand? Check out Search for Amazon for BlackBerry 10

If you tend to shop on Amazon in the UK or USA there is now an application for the BlackBerry Z10 and Q10 which as been developed by S4BB. Using the app is dead simple - at the top of the screen is the search field - just type what you're looking for and off you go.

The screen will then display the list of results and you can dive into any of them to see more details including images, a full description and even reviews. If you like what you see you can either add it to your wish list or add it straight to your basket.

Up at the top right of the display will be the 'basket' icon and from here you can view your items and then proceed to the checkout. It sure makes shopping on the go a whole lot easier than using the browser in my opinion - and best of all the app is free!

Sharing is also included in the app with a tab at the base of the display so if you find anything you think a friend may like you can send it via any of the accounts you have in your BlackBerry Hub.

Nice job once again S4BB - I'm loving this one.

What happened to the official Amazon app we were promised a couple of months ago?

Clever move by S4BB, probably embedding their referral code in the app :)

Please develop something like that for Ebay to get rid of their Android port.

Posted via BlackBerry Z10

Nate650

Yea the port is pretty bad, and half the time I get the "No network found." error.

Caution: All N4BB apps WILL SPAM YOU!!

edwingmel

Thanks for the heads up. I deleted it anyway. The app wouldn't allow me to sign in or shop.

Thanks Verizon. You've done it again.

I haven't gotten any spam from them since downloading the app a few months ago and, I have no issues logging in or anything. I just wish I old purchase music from it as well. And yes, I have Verizon also.

FuzzyFish

That's my issue with S4BB as well, I never download their apps anymore because of it.

Posted via CB10

edwingmel

Downloaded the app. Looks great. Too bad it doesn't allow me to do anything. Just like the ebay app. Might have something to do with the fact that I'm still on 10.09.

Thanks Verizon. You've done it again.

Why not just use Amazon Mobile? I don't see the purpose of having an app since the mobile site is nearly identical.

sfcramsey

Works fine and I am on Verizon...... even worked when I denied the app access in all the permissions.

alternator77

I just have a home screen shortcut that works perfectly.

Although I've tried this app and there appears nothing wrong with it, a competitor app named Shopathon allows you to scan UPC codes of items which it automatically searches Amazon for. A nice feature.

Posted via CB10

tayl0rd

Not only that, but Shopathon's look and feel is nearly identical to the old Amazon app on OS7. (edit: After thinking back to the Amazon app on my 9850, Shopathon is missing the tabs and nothing is swipable. But it's still a little better than Search.) And even better, it's truly free; no ad banner! I installed Search a while back and soon after paid the $.99 to get rid of the banner only to later find Shopathon. I felt cheated by Search. It's a good app, but Shopathon is better.

tranceboy_johny

whatever, we always get unofficial apps... i don't care even to look at this app.

Amazon Canada too?

I can shop Amazon from my PC and iPad. This one I'll say no to until Amazon comes up with an app for BB.

sk8er_tor

Like I'm really going to support a company that hasn't given us a single native app.

00stryder

They did port over their Kindle app, but I get what you're saying.

All this is is a wrapper for Amazon's mobile site that gives a third party a record of your searches, serves up ads, and takes AWAY functionality from the Amazon website (tabs).

Come on, CB, don't feature stuff like this.

Posted via CB10

luckynando

+1. I also don't like the idea of ordering something when a third party is involved. Just doesn't sound as safe as I'd like. Remove this stupid post for this Amazon app when the site is much better. CB selling out.

I would love to have some way to buy music and movies thru an Amazon app and get them on my phone directly.

tayl0rd

+1000! It is no easy feat to get music from Amazon onto my Z10, and the same songs in BlackBerry World cost more than they do on Amazon. In addition, BlackBerry World charges sales tax on music whereas Amazon does not.

hazenjonas

I bought the new Lonely Island album yesterday on Amazon. I had to download them onto my Mac then put my Z10 in usb mass storage mode and manually move the music onto my BB. Music sync doesn't even kind of work. Kind of tiresome especially since I gave up my iPod and just want to use my Z for my music.

tayl0rd

That's exactly what I do, with exception of using a PC. I setup the Amazon Cloud drive to save to my Z10 while having my Z10 connected as USB mass storage.

Savior4Life

Only interested in a native official Amazon app.

Boo. Canada support plx

I actually downloaded this the other day and ordered off it. It worked really well and even let me change my payment options. I was impressed. Good to see its getting some CB love.

So why don't blackberry fix the Damn sound alert notification for email and text while on a call. Every other phone in the world has this feature. The Z10 and Q10 do not have this feature which is totally unexceptable. If I complain enough, and more and more Z10 and Q10 owners realize that this feature is missing from there device, and miss important text or email, and stop encouraging potential customers to try the phones then it might get fixed.
