Along with eBay and other apps in the Windows Store, Amazon is obviously among the best shopping apps to use on your desktop or touch Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 device. A new update has been released for the official app and it takes care of a good number of bugs.

Amazon is one of the “oldest” apps in the Windows Store for Windows 8 users, and since its official release, it hasn’t seen too many updates. We previously reported about some bug fixes and now a new version has been released. Just like with the previous improvement, the changelog only says “performance improvements”, but I’m managed to spot what has been changed scanning the Windows Store for reviews and also carefully analyzing the new version.

First of all, the official Amazon app has been updated with a short guide in the Settings section on how to reactivate live tiles for those who were experiencing problems with this. What is still pretty frustrating is the fact that most of the app works just like a “veil” for its web interface, as what most of the Windows 8 Amazon users would like to see is a completely adapted version to the Modern user interface.

The Amazon app allows you to quickly make purchases, search, compare prices, read reviews, and share products with friends using a simple yet elegant interface. Shop just as you do on the web. You can access any of Amazon’s sites around the world from a single app by simply selecting your desired Amazon country store or shipping destination. You have full access to your existing cart and wish lists.

Besides the above mentioned changed, problems with the display which wasn’t calibrated on big resolution screens has also been fixed, at least from what the reviews are saying. Also, some users were reporting that they were experiencing problems when signing in and that the app was pretty slow and lagging at times. This also seems to have been taken care off.
