About a month and a half ago, Amazon released a Cloud Player app for all iOS devices (iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch). Today the company released a free Instant Video app for the iPad.
What does this mean? It means that iPad owners can now watch any Instant Watch video on Amazon, including more than 20,000 Prime Instant Videos (which are free for Amazon Prime members). Users can either stream or download the videos.
Amazon states in its press release that the app includes the following:
- “Your Watchlist” feature that lets customers make a list of all the movies and TV episodes they want to watch in the future, regardless of whether they own the video or not, making it easy to keep track of specific videos for later viewing.
- “Your Video Library” feature that gives iPad customers access to purchases and rentals from Amazon Instant Video on the web.
The app is free and can be downloaded via iTunes. There is no word on when a similar app for the iPhone or Android devices will be available.
