Interface

The interface looks identical to that of the website, albeit scaled down for a mobile screen. The app appears similar to many other video streaming apps, with a dark background and vivid content thumbnails. Across the top, the app displays the same menu options as on the desktop: Home, Originals, TV, Movies, and Kids. Tapping on a show or movie brings you to a details page where you can view a show summary, as well as read user ratings and reviews.

In the upper-right corner, the app includes a search button. In continuing with the desktop interface’s theme of excessive menus, the app overflow menu on the left-hand side of the screen features a number of content categories as well, including Home, Originals, TV, Movies, Kids, Watchlist, Video Library, and Downloads. Amazon needs to reduce these duplicates. The app does give users a fair amount of control over how the app works, with settings for stream and download quality, parental control options, a list of registered devices, as well as the ability to clear video search history. Prime members (not Amazon Video subscribers), can also manage Amazon Channels subscriptions from the app.

Streaming on a mobile device is quick and stable. Over PCMag’s Wi-Fi connection (50Mpbs download), I downloaded a 44-minute episode of The Expanse in the highest quality in a little under a minute and a half. If you have the time and storage space, the app includes an option for downloading an entire season of a show all at once. For streaming or downloading on a mobile device, make sure that you are on a Wi-Fi connection or have an unlimited data plan; one hour of content equates to about 1.8 GB of data.

Complete Video Package

Amazon Prime Video offers a ton of great TV shows and movies at a reasonable price and is just one of the many excellent benefits of an Amazon Prime membership. Amazon has also ramped up its commitment to original programming with quality series such as Patriot and The Marvelous Ms. Maisel. Additionally, Prime Video is available on nearly every platform you can name and lets you purchase or rent shows and movies it doesn’t include as part of its subscription. That said, we would like to see Amazon prioritize content discovery to a greater degree.

    Thank you so much for Chromecast. In general, completely satisfied with the service. As long as there is content that interests me, I don’t plan to cancel the subscription, everything suits me

    A very cool application for watching movies, streaming is very high quality, a huge selection of films of various genres and series. It is advisable to have premium access.

    Overall app is not bad, connection pretty stable, downloads feature is very convenient in places where it is no connection. Watch history sync between devices could’ve been better. But most annoying – I can’t zoom in video frame!

    Working great. Really wish it wouldn’t close so fast – like you take an incoming call and when you did – you are back on the main screen – not even the series menu, that you were watching. Also, navigation between the episodes inside the watching screen would be really helpful.
