Amazon Instant Video
By AMZN Mobile LLC
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Watch anywhere, anytime. Get unlimited streaming of more than 40,000 movies and TV episodes, including Amazon Originals you won’t find anywhere else. It’s all included with Prime Instant Video, available at no additional cost with an Amazon Prime membership. You can also watch any video you rent or purchase from the more than 140,000 videos available from Amazon Instant Video.
Download purchased and rented videos from Your Video Library for offline viewing on airplanes, road trips, or when a Wi-Fi connection is unavailable. When you find a movie or TV show you want to save for later, add it to Your Watchlist. It’s your custom list of videos chosen by the person who knows you best — you!
Start watching a video on an iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch, and Whispersync technology automatically keeps your place between devices. You can resume watching your video from where you left off on a Kindle Fire HD, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, Mac, or hundreds of models of connected TVs and Blu-ray players.
Amazon Instant Video for iPad requires a Wi-Fi connection to stream videos. Streaming over a cellular connection isn’t supported. You can watch your downloaded videos without a Wi-Fi connection. The Amazon Instant Video app for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch is designed for an unmodified version of iOS.

Wifi and buffering
The only 2 complaints that I have are it needs wifi and it buffers. I'm in the middle of a movie and it stops right in the middle and does the little circle that says it's loading, and says buffering. Sometimes it stops in the middle of a show. But other than that, it's great. It does take a while for it to load. And get movies to where you can watch them. If you have patience than i would recommend this app for YOU!!!:)
Works great but needs wifi
This app works really well and I like the selection of movies and tv shows it has, except I wish I could watch prime movies/tv shows on the go using my 4G. I'm only able to use the app at home when I have wifi, otherwise the app is useless outside of my wifi. I think it's kind of silly to have an app for phones and other portable devices that you can't use on the go with data.
There no way to search genres. Also there's no way to filter through prime shows. It shows everything and it's up to you to figure out if it's prime or u have to pay an addition cost. Another feature needed is being able to set a rating and prevent shows below set rating from coming up ie: children setting. The website let's you but even that is limited because of layout and lack of alphabetizing.
