The Good Amazon Mobile supports most of Amazon.com's shopping functions.

The Bad No voice search or specialized shopping functions like Appstore purchases or Kindle downloads.

The Bottom Line If you're a frequent shopper on Amazon.com, looking for a way to access the site from your phone, then download Amazon Mobile now.

With Amazon Mobile for Android, users can shop the online megaretailer's enormous catalog of items while on the go. Much like the full Web site, the mobile app lets you browse by department, compare prices, read reviews, and more. Plus, it lets you share items you find via Android's share menu.

Right off the bat, Amazon Mobile lets you conduct product searches or browse by department, even without signing in. It lets you see product pages, share, even add items to a shopping cart. But beyond that, not much else, unless of course you create a new account or sign in to an existing Amazon account. Once you're in, you can make purchases, access your wish list and shopping list, and see recommendations based on your browsing and purchase history. Also, with an account, you can easily see your open orders and access your synced shopping cart from your desktop computer or other mobile devices. Signing in with an account is the only way to get the most of the Amazon Mobile app.
