Amazon for iOS Updated with New Gestures for Faster Shopping

Amazon for iOS has been updated today with some new press and hold and swipe gestures, to make it even easier to shop.

To add items to a list, all you do now is press and hold on an item’s image, then drag it to a new bottom tray, where a thumbnail will appear. To remove the item from the bottom tray, just press and hold and wait for the option to remove it, or tap the “…” menu.

Unfortunately I did not purchase these Lucky Charms Treats, although maybe I should…

When searching for items, new swipe gestures make it faster to add items to cart and see related items. When you see the item you want to add to cart in your results list, just swipe to the left. To see related items, swipe to the right. Check our screenshots below:

Last but not least, iPad users can now initiate a product return from Your Orders, bringing the app to speed like its iPhone counterpart.
