Amazon Instant Video app now available for all iOS devices
Thursday morning, online retailer Amazon announced that it has launched the Amazon Instant Video app for the Apple iPhone and Apple iPod touch. Earlier this year, the app was made available for the Apple iPad meaning that today's launch allows the service to be available for all iOS devices.

The app allows users to view movies or television shows already purchased or rented from Amazon Instant Video. The videos can be found in "Your Video Library". You can also purchase movies or television shows from a library of 140,000 videos, using the mobile Safari browser on your iOS device. If you are a member of Amazon Prime, you can choose from a library of 30,000 free videos.Your Watchlist lets you track television shows and movies that you might want to watch later. You can add new titles or old favorites, and come back later to watch them instantly. Amazon's announcement comes right after Verizon and Coinstar announced that they will offer a video streaming service over iOS and Android using the Redbox name, for $8 per month. The new app allows Amazon to compete with other video services like Netflix.

Unfortunately, very unfortunately, I suspect no general android device phone or tablet will ever see this app, because Amazon feels it would undercut their Kindle Fire sales. So I guess all of our Amazon Prime money is down the drain. oh well

yeah, where is the Android version? I pay for Amazon Prime and I'd love to watch some instant video during the commute. It only makes sense. It's like Amazon is pushing people towards Netflix.

No kidding. That kind of annoys me how exclusive they've been about this app, when in reality they make so much money from selling their services and product rather than their devices. I have Amazon Prime and paid $70 for it, I think I'm entitled to watch it on my phone!
