Amazon Windowshop Brings Product Perusal To American iPads

It's easy to find what you're looking for when you're shopping online, but what if you're not really looking for anything in the first place? Amazon Windowshop lets you flick until you find something that catches your eye.

The free new app (only available in the US) lets you cruise through Amazon's seemingly endless inventory for products both physical and digital - electronics, books, ebooks, toys, clothes, MP3s and everything else under the Amazon sun. You can flick horizontally or vertically through thumbnails, which load snappily as you poke around. Tapping a thumbnail brings up a little window for that product with photos, details, reviews and more, and you can buy items securely from right in the app. All in all it's a pretty novel (and potentially dangerous) way to skim through Amazon's offerings.
