Amazon Instant Video is finally available to download for iOS. Actually, it’s only available for the iPad but it’s a start. Instant video allows you to browse through around 120,000 videos to either buy or rent and if you’re an Amazon Prime member, you can stream 1000s videos for free.
Watch thousands of titles available from Prime Instant Video at no additional cost with an Amazon Prime membership and over 120,000 videos available from the Amazon Instant Video store by installing the Amazon Instant Video app. Download purchased and rented videos from Your Video Library for offline viewing on airplanes, road trips, or any time a WiFi connection is unavailable. Keep track of movies and TV shows to watch later by adding them to Your Watchlist. A selection of top Prime Instant Video titles is included in the app, and you can visit Amazon to add other Prime titles to Your Watchlist. Start watching a video on an iPad and Whispersync technology automatically syncs your place between devices, allowing videos to be resumed from where you left off on a Kindle Fire, PS3, PC, Mac, or hundreds of models of connected TVs and Blu-ray players.
So unfortunately there’s no iPhone or iPod version out yet. Nor is there an Apple TV or Airplay option. But it seems Amazon is taking baby steps and making its moves carefully. Why? I have no idea. Nevertheless, download the free app here and get a free Prime trial here.
