Amazon kills its Windows Phone app for good on August 15
Amazon last month removed its Windows Phone app from the Windows Store search results and announced that the app won't be available for download after July 25. It can still be downloaded with a direct link. Existing users will be able to use the service until August 15 when the it will be killed off for good.

Amazon revealed the news via emails sent out to current and past users of its app. This is what the email says:

As you can see from the email, Amazon recommends that Windows Phone users do their shopping through the mobile version of the site. Interestingly enough, PayPal recommended exactly the same thing before it killed its apps for Windows Phone and Amazon Fire last month. Whether Amazon has a new app in the works, is currently unknown. If that's the case, it better be a universal one!
