  • Good enough but not great! Nov 16, 2020

    By RDWharley
    I find the layout of the movies a bit awkward. I wish for example when I want to look at my watchlist it would show thumbnails on the entire page of nothing but my watchlist. Same with the different categories of watch next or any other category of movies. I hate swiping from right to left to have to go through a bunch of movies to find the movie I am looking for. Good enough of selection of movies, never enough. Like to see more foreign films and independent films. Also would like to see them get rid of the ludicrous restriction of the prohibition against watching videos outside the country. Why do they care if I watch it in Utah or if I watch it in Japan? I have paid to watch the film. They certainly should be able to work around this legal technicality which is absurd! That’s when I want to watch my movies the most, when I’m outside the country. Also I think they charge for way too many series and films when I am a Prime member. They vast majority should be free.

    I love the prime video app overall. For the most part it remembers where you left off on shows from device to device. I can save my favorites, and it recommends shows for me. The first flaw that bugs me, if I pause the movie with around 5 minutes left, and come back to it after the screen shuts off, it always skips to the next episode and cuts off my last few minutes. This happens on my Galaxy, Firestick and iPad, so I know it’s not my device . Drives me crazy. Next flaw is I can’t clear my watch history on just one show. I’m rewatching some shows and lose my place because it shows that I’ve seen all the episodes. I don’t want to clear my entire watch history, then I’ll lose my place in current shows. I wish this was a feature. If this feature exists, I haven’t seen anywhere to click to make this happen. Other than these two complaints, I enjoy prime video very much!

    i thoroughly enjoy the selection of tv shows and movies prime video brings. add ons, especially the HBO add on just heightens my experience. despite this, the developers have plenty of work to do with the app itself. it works just fine on the tv but the app is another story. often when i start a new episode the pause screen remains while the video continues to play in the background. i try to tap to make it go away and nothing happens. i try to tap anywhere to make it do anything like press back to return the home page or press pause and nothing works. i even exit the app and close the tab and the audio continues to play in the background. even turning off my phone it continues to play for several moments after. at first i thought it was just my ipad since it was an older model and has a history of issues but i continuously had the same issues on my iphone. not the end of the world but certainly annoying
  • Prime Video is for movie lovers, WHY??? Mar 3, 2020

    By read_this_alice
    First, you can get a 5 star rating to see how others are feeling about the movie you are considering. You will see right away the year it was made and who is in the cast. Second and my favorite, You can click onto the the cast and get individual pictures of each cast member and feedback on their film history. How many times have you watched a movie and wanted to know who played that character? Prime has made it easy for you to find out the name of that character you didn't know before. Third, lists other movies that people watched that had watched this movie. Often leading to another movie that was just as good. Fourth and fantastic, I can type in favorite actors, favorite directors, specific countries, to get lists of movies I would like to watch for whatever category reasons I want. Fabulous for anyone who wants to do film studies. You can type in about any subject and find movies that will fall into the category you want to focus on. No other video provider offers as many choices in movies, TV, documentaries, series, and anything else you can think of. They have made a point to cover just about everything a home entertainment app audience tastes and needs could possibly want to find. I am a 68 year old retired elementary school teacher and grandma who happens to be a movie enthusiasts. I hope this helps some people decide if Prime Video is for them.

    It's a really great service with great selection. I love the fact that you can get more information on the actors and actresses while you're watching the show just by pressing the screen. It's also pretty cool with that Amazon will show you other options of getting watching a show even if they don't have it on there prime service. Great original programming!.. by the way, I'm writing this by talking into my phone at 1:30 in the morning so excuse any grammatical or spelling errors.
  • Options & Devices Jan 13, 2019

    I like the quality, features (on phone, your able to see the music that's playing during a spacific scene and all the main characters. Along with the seasons and episodes your currently on (if it's a TV show)), and I like the modern slick design. I don't appreciate the options (some movies you still have to buy or rent to enjoy) like 'The Grinch' among others for now. They have others available...that came out in 1920s but not the newer ones available! It has been frustrating that I have to watch on my phone for most of the features and am absolutely not able to watch anything on my laptop. I think it would be nice to have the same features available on Apple TV and so on. Lastly, it would be nice to be able to create multiple accounts for multiple people under 1 main account. Hope this helps! I look forward to seeing the changes in the future.

    The app is slow and sluggish and the UI design leaves a lot to offer. Disregarding that, the catalogue is great and I believe the streaming itself (even tho the player is really unpractical) works as supposed. I also think that putting ads, even though they're about their shows is a really annoying feature.

Almost All the Good 80s movies Especially Comedies you have to pay for, Again your Paying for Prime, yrly or mthly.! So I do recommend check out Tubi, Peacock, Netflix Hulu All free memberships under Premium!

    Lots of redundancy in the app. The "free to me" aspect activates and deactivates. When watching a show or series, the episodes revert back to an earlier season. In android phones, the app opens a second window which sometimes does not allow for skipping pause or interaction in anyway. The aesthetic however is quite nice. Doesn't show what you have seen or currently watching in a convenient location.
  • Was a fan,.. Still am just less now. Sep 24, 2019

    By Darkwolvez
    Have always loved your app. Was thrilled when you add support for the Chrome cast, love all your originals, and you have a great selection of shows. Then, you did the Netflix thing, asking if I'm still watching after a 2 to 3 episodes,.. Sigh,.. Most obnoxious thing ever. I work from home and have the tv on while I'm working,.. Insanely annoying to have to take my phone out, unlock it, try to remember which episode I was on (as your app only some times plays the right one when I get back on to it, if my wife is watching and she has watched past what I have it just goes to that). Then wait for the app to open, load up, find the correct episode, then start it over, as half the time it just restarts the episode, try to use the tiny bar to fast forward to where I was,.. Sorry,I hate this new update,.. 2 stars off, love everything else.

    This is especially about funzone. I am playing in funZone from last 4 months didn't get anything I think you people are selecting your persons, selection not done by randomly because I was suggested so many people they also playing but didn't get anything. Just you want to remove the word in terms and conditions selected randomly. That's better to us because we are wasting our time because the word randomly.

    Live is awful. This service is terrible, I can not watch live tennis. The audio is playing but the screen is black with a buffering wheel indefinitely. Unacceptable! I have deleted data and uninstalled the app and reinstalled to no avail. I don't expect Amazon to reply, nor do anything about this. They don't care about our experience, they just take the monthly fee.

    Anyone else noticed the "subtle" change in how Prime works? Because I have! In fact I was in the middle of watching a movie when this seemed to take effect. The movie (Demonic - awesome movie) when I decided to save the last 25 minutes. Next day the "Prime" sign was gone. So I thought you now had to pay. But no, it said continue. And within 5 minutes, I had a 60 second advert pop up. 2 of them. They had nothing to do with movies. There were 10 of these. Another cash grab from Amazon. 💰💰

    This app needs being remade from scratch. Both Netflix and YouTube are better in every way. 720p quality and higher are banned on mainstream phones where Netflix and YouTube provide HD. Fast forward/rewind on TV is a disaster. Configuration of subtitles and languages is bad on phone, but even worse on the TV app. Commercials played before content EVEN PAYING PRIME. Content sorting logic is unexplicable. Seasons appear separated. Special episodes in series appear usually in the wrong order.

    PIP isn't working wih samsung one ui 3.1 (Android 11) and Realme UI 2.0 also android 11. Instead pip window popping up, it just minimises the window!!! Please do something about this... Edit: I already have discovery+ subscription & I want to merge both. Why the app isn't allowing me to do so. Everytime it takes me directly to payment method. Instead of asking if I already have a subscription to discovery+. Please fix this ASAP.
  • Takes too long to switch devices Dec 30, 2020

    By MusicChick94
    I love being able to watch shows and the low movie rental prices. However, what really annoys me is the fact that they limit the amount of devices that you can watch shows/movies on but then it takes forever to update when switching devices. I can’t count how many times I’ve tried switching from my phone to my tv for it to take over fifteen minutes for it to allow me to watch on the different device. No matter how many times I exit out of the app or turn off the device it continuously tells me that my video cannot play because it is “playing on another device.” If they are going to be that particular about how many devices can be used they should update their software so it runs faster. I shouldn’t have to wait fifteen minutes to continue my show on another device because their app doesn’t understand I’ve switched and closed out the app on other devices.

    Video Quality poor. Even with good Wifi or broadband connection the video quality is poor. One needs to pause video for 10 to 15 mins to start watching so that the video quality is moderate. Never had this issue with Netflix or Hotstar. No sure why such a big brand as Amazon can't fix this issue there for so many years now
  • Kinda useless Jan 7, 2021

    By no_nicknamebyme
    Stuff just doesn’t play anymore. A 1 hour video- I give up after waiting half an hour of loading for it to play. I seriously have to download videos for any of them to play. I’ve been in contact with them off and on for the past year and the only thing they can come up with is, close out/reopen, reboot device, delete/download the app, none of this has worked. Now, nothing plays at all. It’ll load for probably 15 minutes then it says there was a problem streaming or playing the video. Last time it did that, it also said there was a problem with the devices internet connection. Now, there is nothing wrong with my internet connection because at the same time, I can stream stuff of similar duration on another app and those NEVER take longer than 4-5 seconds to play. Also when I go into account settings it sits there and loads for a lot longer than it should. BTW, same story on 2 of my iPhones and yes, I have the resolution set to the lowest level
  • Too much greed Feb 26, 2020

    By nicknamesnottakenjustwanttostp
    I don’t mind commercials in free videos, but if I can’t rewind if I miss something what’s the point. Every time I try to rewind It gives me a commercial. I can’t rewind the movie!!! All due to your greed. Like you don’t get enough of my money. We are already pay for the service you would think you could err on the side of the paying viewer, not the sponsor. Show the price of a video free, free with ads, rent or buy without making me go into the movie page just to find out I have to pay if it want to see it. I realize this is another ploy to force more money out of us, but come on. Do you really need to be deceitful for more money? Just tell me in the thumbnail. So I don’t have to explain to my kid why we can’t see the movie he wanted to see, and I thought was included in my prime dues. Put a dollar sign in the thumbnail so I don’t have to waste time going back and forth between the main page and the individual movie pages.
  • Prime video sync flaw Nov 22, 2020

    By nckname1234
    Overall prime is good, but when I purchase a video on my prime account the video does not always appear in my account. I access prime on my phone, tablet, computer and TV and yet sometimes a video I’ve purchased and am watching on my computer, or any other device, may take weeks or months to show up in ‘My Stuff’ on my TV, or any other device. When I try to switch between devices to continue watching a video the film may not be there or may take weeks to appear. I thought this was a one time thing, because it first happen about two years ago, but I’ve noticed it happening since then and again today when I purchased a video on my tablet and then tried to watch the video on my TV, the video needed to be repurchased, which I’m not about to do. I don’t share my devices with anyone so there’s no issue with my account being mixed with someone else’s, it just seems to be a syncing flaw.

  • Great app. Only one small issue... Jun 4, 2021

    By mikebatman742
    I found that if I pause what I’m playing on the app only a minute later it will totally close whatever it is I’m playing. I have an iPhone so other media apps will linger in the background so that if I pause for a moment I can come right back to it where I left off without having to reopen the app and press “play” again. Also I can’t make it a background window on my phone without full screening it first which is another thing other media apps do right away which is odd. But over all it is not too inconvenient of things. Just little nitpicks that could make an already great app even better and rival other media apps!
  • Love it, but could use some improvements! Nov 7, 2019

    By lamangias
    Our family loves watching Prime! Access to family friendly shows is what we look for most in our TV viewing. There are some PBS shows where we can see a few episodes or seasons and then others cost too much to buy. Would like to see shows like Murder She Wrote, etc have more seasons added. Also, I enjoy watching Law & Order SVU, so more seasons of that and other similar shows would be great. Would like to see more of the movies for kids be “prime” instead of having to pay for many that we would watch. Overall, use it way more than Netflix....thinking about giving it up, if Prime offers more.
  • Movies and Episodes can be better! Jan 7, 2020

    By Just Shalicious
    It’s unfortunate to see a number of the programs have not been renewed for a second or third season; for instance Rebel and In Contempt. Both of these movies had beautifully talented black queens playing major roles. Then we watched Sacrifice with Paula Patton, this movie should’ve had an sequel to it as well. Anyone who watched that movie was highly upset just as me and my daughter were to be left with so many unanswered pieces. There are a number of great movies but the programs that have been cancelled for second or third seasons should be taken off, and replaced with new and improved episodes that actually aren’t cancelled within the first seasons.
  • I love this app Sep 27, 2020

    By thankfulsue
    I have been loving the prime app. As you all know we are mostly quarantined, with that said it is easy to download and pay for a ton of streaming services. I decided to get rid of all of them and keep Prime and Netflix. Since I stoped paying for sling tv I have been impressed with the amount of shows and variety that prime offers. I’m obsessed with true crime and this app has a ton of shows I have never heard of. I also have HBO with my prime subscription and I have not ran out of new and great programs. I especially love the Documentary’s. And I’m pretty sure this is the only place to watch the comedy Brides maids which has to be one of the funniest movies.
  • Great but... Aug 15, 2020

    By nothings stopping me
    It’s great don’t get me wrong but the problem is that sometimes that when I buy something it freezes and when I reload it the show/movie I buy says I have to buy it again but all the stuff I did doesn’t come its nothing big but please get it fixed it is so frustrating when I’m about to buy something and knocks me out please get that fixed it’s so annoying and agitating it might just be that my phone is not the newest kind or that my WiFi isn’t working right then but it is really really frustrating when it happens but besides that all in all I’d rate it 9.5 out of 10 it is still pretty cool
  • Am Prime Video Feb 27, 2019

    By chinesesister
    The app is a snap to use, and provides enough info for each video to help a person decide how to use the next 90 or 120 minutes. The biggest downside to me is that many of the choices provided to an Am Prime subscriber are really BAD movies: they’re not 'B' movies. No, they barely make it into the alphabet at all. More like 'V' movies or programs. And if there is a 'search' for a particular actor or director, the movies with some depth or interesting plots or where your search turns up movies of your actor choice, the best movies are NOT Am Prime. They may not be 'V' movies, but they miss 'A' and 'B' by a long-shot! And I was surprised at how few choices are Am Prime when I’m looking for work of a particular actor. There may be two, maybe three selections, but that’s it. And those selections are often not 'A' or 'B' either. I chalk up the gaps in decent choices as Am Prime learning how best to use this relatively new and attractive program. And so, I am hoping that there will improvement and more thought behind movie choices and program choices as Am Prime matures.
  • Love prime shows May 9, 2021

    Thank you for creating prime shows I rented few movies and came across some really clean cute shows free prime with Ads thank you I love some of the rentals and free movies I not into violence shows those should not be shown with the shootings violence we have here in America I like to see you make more shows showing kids to respect their elders like Doris day, Andy griffin show something like that this generation of kids need to see more of this you may think I sound old fashioned but what I saying is the truth put on shows chinny chunky bang bang wizard of oz these shows shows respect this is what kids need to see more of thank you for all you do

    What about us kids who aren’t teenagers yet or necessarily little kids either i wish there were more show options for us i want to watch river dale right but my parents wont let me just yet and so I’m having to watch the archies comics there good but not much like Riverdale and for us girls that are my age 12 we want more options a lot of the shows for our age are animated sometimes more leaning towards the boys so if you could get other options that would be great other than that prime is good well there is one more thing a lot of these shows you have to buy or rent ok other than those things its a good app
  • Chicago Fire Mar 9, 2020

    By onejazzycat
    It took very little time for me to get hooked on this show. The characters are well portrayed by the actors and actresses who play them. The story lines are more than interesting, both the fire scenes and the personal ones. They are dramatic and keep my attention at all times, and always leave me wanting more. It’s great the way the characters are written so that you can love or hate them in one episode, and come to feel exactly the opposite way about them in the next one. Even my favorite characters have a not so pretty human side from time to time...just like a family. I love this show. It’s my favorite of all time.
  • Good, but flawed Jan 15, 2020

    By Monka83
    I love the prime video app overall. For the most part it remembers where you left off on shows from device to device. I can save my favorites, and it recommends shows for me. The first flaw that bugs me, if I pause the movie with around 5 minutes left, and come back to it after the screen shuts off, it always skips to the next episode and cuts off my last few minutes. This happens on my Galaxy, Firestick and iPad, so I know it’s not my device . Drives me crazy. Next flaw is I can’t clear my watch history on just one show. I’m rewatching some shows and lose my place because it shows that I’ve seen all the episodes. I don’t want to clear my entire watch history, then I’ll lose my place in current shows. I wish this was a feature. If this feature exists, I haven’t seen anywhere to click to make this happen. Other than these two complaints, I enjoy prime video very much!

  • Ok but some issues need to be fixed Mar 5, 2021

    By BB8800
    Enjoy some of what prime offers but it’s not my go-to streaming app as there’s just too many others out there with more content. A couple of things that I dislike about this app is the forward and rewind functions (instead of just forwarding or rewinding, it tells you you have to hold to forward or rewind and takes a few second before it actually does it, whereas other apps just forward and rewind right away). The other thing is it doesn’t always go to where you last left off. Finally, my biggest complaint is that I started to watch more foreign shows, particularly Chinese drama, and problems I’ve noted include audio and video not syncing, and the audio will go out completely in parts of the show. Would be good if these can be fixed.
  • My favorite streaming service, but for 1 BIG problem Jun 12, 2020

    By nellnell84
    I love the movie and show selections included in Prime. I LOVE the selection of crime shows from the UK and the shows from PBS. The one complaint, and it’s a pretty big one, is that stream frequently fails/crashes/goes back to the selection screen. This happens several times every week. It also happens on both iPad and iPhone apps. Sometimes it will resume working when it select play, but usually it will continue to fail and Nothing but time will resolve it. When this happens have tried restarting the app, uninstall/reinstalling the app, switching from WiFi to cellular. Nothing I have tried has provided a better solution than time away from the app. Please fix this.
  • Pretty good Apr 15, 2019

    By LaurenNicoleM
    Prime app works great. Overall, it's relatively user friendly, awesome that data syncs to your other devices, and the content is fantastic. However, I have a few complaints: My biggest gripe: I'm not a fan of subscription-based payments, so I believe the monthly Prime membership should include access the ALL content, not just some content. It needs a more functional layout (it's too cluttered looking). Also- the Search function is tedious and time consuming if you don't have a microphone, you have to click letter-by-letter with your remote and pause typing before it will populate matching results. And what's with lack of predictive text here? Finally, I also wish users could make different shareable playlists for other Prime users.
  • Great App - Needs Menu Help to be Awesome Oct 29, 2019

    By 1badger1970
    Love Prime! It’s my favorite streaming platform. To make it awesome....it needs a user-defined view for purchased movies/shows! The cataloging views on my phone, tablet and TV are second rate. Let the user define (by different views) how they see their library! I don’t care to see a default chronological sort of what I’ve purchased! I DO care that 4 movies in a series are grouped together so I don’t have to scroll through 300 titles to find one of them. Also, show two or more rows of my purchases. A single row scroll is sooo yesteryear! I have 200 plus purchases and it’s getting harder and harder to find things. Please help. Last comment, allow purchases on my iPhone! Don’t make me log into another device for purchase.
  • I love it but … Aug 17, 2021

    But I hate that you have to purchase some movies and the look of the app like do you even like celebrate Christmas day and Christmas movies and Christmas stuff do they make the ad look like a head scarfs Christmas hatSnow and that’s it and the prime video logo I want to see that and awesome oh well but also because you know I’ll be watching it are you watching odd squad cars are yeah are you getting into child Hood State because I mean don’t we all remember our childhood and I’d be watching pretty good stuff on there not really much to be watching but I like everything about it I like that they have all these movies and stuff I hate that you have to purchase some but it’s OK#HatingLoveNotReallyHatingLove… This is Hannah signing off PS do not hate love.
  • Good UI, lots of titles, annoying filters Dec 17, 2020

    By Organiz3r
    I like this app. I never have any problems like crashing or anything. There are a lot of titles, they give good summary and background info, AND they still have user reviews which I think really enhances the browsing and watching experience. I end up choosing more titles I actually like so I finish more stuff on here than on other platforms. The recommendations are good too. My only complaint is that as far as I know, there’s no way to filter out stuff you cannot watch or even purchases on the app. So when you’re browsing you constantly have to check and see if you can even watch the titles before you get too interested:-/ Only reason I deducted a star.
  • Does not fully clear when closed Sep 14, 2021

    By Santapasta
    I have discovered that Car Play texting and reading texts doesn’t work if Prime Video isn’t fully shut down on my iPhone. Even with the app closed, my home screen still thinks it’s there and shows me a play button. I think I may have to fully shut down my phone to clear it (cached?) before I can drive anywhere. This never happened with Netflix to any degree. And this is after the most recent update from Sept 8/21. Other than this frustrating bug, great app. UPDATE: Definitely have to power off my phone to clear out Prime Video so I can send and receive texts via Car Play. Prime video also shuts down if I use another audio app via Car Play.
  • A couple of issues Jul 12, 2021

    By Buddy1864
    I like the selection of tv and movies available, plus that it gives me access to my ever growing digital movie library. One problem is that if you are binging a show and pause your TV show in the last few minutes, and exit the app, it automatically assumes that you don’t want to watch the end of the episode. The next episode automatically comes up and you have to backtrack, scroll, and watch 2 minutes of commercials to see the big reveal in the last few seconds of the episode. I also see a lot of episode reviews are incorrect (looking at you Smallville). Hopefully these issues will be corrected in the future.
  • Good enough but not great! Nov 16, 2020

    By RDWharley
    I find the layout of the movies a bit awkward. I wish for example when I want to look at my watchlist it would show thumbnails on the entire page of nothing but my watchlist. Same with the different categories of watch next or any other category of movies. I hate swiping from right to left to have to go through a bunch of movies to find the movie I am looking for. Good enough of selection of movies, never enough. Like to see more foreign films and independent films. Also would like to see them get rid of the ludicrous restriction of the prohibition against watching videos outside the country. Why do they care if I watch it in Utah or if I watch it in Japan? I have paid to watch the film. They certainly should be able to work around this legal technicality which is absurd! That’s when I want to watch my movies the most, when I’m outside the country. Also I think they charge for way too many series and films when I am a Prime member. They vast majority should be free.
  • good selection but poor app experience Apr 11, 2019

    By It needs tweeks
    i thoroughly enjoy the selection of tv shows and movies prime video brings. add ons, especially the HBO add on just heightens my experience. despite this, the developers have plenty of work to do with the app itself. it works just fine on the tv but the app is another story. often when i start a new episode the pause screen remains while the video continues to play in the background. i try to tap to make it go away and nothing happens. i try to tap anywhere to make it do anything like press back to return the home page or press pause and nothing works. i even exit the app and close the tab and the audio continues to play in the background. even turning off my phone it continues to play for several moments after. at first i thought it was just my ipad since it was an older model and has a history of issues but i continuously had the same issues on my iphone. not the end of the world but certainly annoying
  • Prime Video is for movie lovers, WHY??? Mar 3, 2020

    By read_this_alice
    First, you can get a 5 star rating to see how others are feeling about the movie you are considering. You will see right away the year it was made and who is in the cast. Second and my favorite, You can click onto the the cast and get individual pictures of each cast member and feedback on their film history. How many times have you watched a movie and wanted to know who played that character? Prime has made it easy for you to find out the name of that character you didn't know before. Third, lists other movies that people watched that had watched this movie. Often leading to another movie that was just as good. Fourth and fantastic, I can type in favorite actors, favorite directors, specific countries, to get lists of movies I would like to watch for whatever category reasons I want. Fabulous for anyone who wants to do film studies. You can type in about any subject and find movies that will fall into the category you want to focus on. No other video provider offers as many choices in movies, TV, documentaries, series, and anything else you can think of. They have made a point to cover just about everything a home entertainment app audience tastes and needs could possibly want to find. I am a 68 year old retired elementary school teacher and grandma who happens to be a movie enthusiasts. I hope this helps some people decide if Prime Video is for them.
  • Options & Devices Jan 13, 2019

    By Artistparachrist
    I like the quality, features (on phone, your able to see the music that's playing during a spacific scene and all the main characters. Along with the seasons and episodes your currently on (if it's a TV show)), and I like the modern slick design. I don't appreciate the options (some movies you still have to buy or rent to enjoy) like 'The Grinch' among others for now. They have others available...that came out in 1920s but not the newer ones available! It has been frustrating that I have to watch on my phone for most of the features and am absolutely not able to watch anything on my laptop. I think it would be nice to have the same features available on Apple TV and so on. Lastly, it would be nice to be able to create multiple accounts for multiple people under 1 main account. Hope this helps! I look forward to seeing the changes in the future.

    The app is slow and sluggish and the UI design leaves a lot to offer. Disregarding that, the catalogue is great and I believe the streaming itself (even tho the player is really unpractical) works as supposed. I also think that putting ads, even though they're about their shows is a really annoying feature.
  • Oct 12, 2021

    By Chris Godoy
    Lots of redundancy in the app. The "free to me" aspect activates and deactivates. When watching a show or series, the episodes revert back to an earlier season. In android phones, the app opens a second window which sometimes does not allow for skipping pause or interaction in anyway. The aesthetic however is quite nice. Doesn't show what you have seen or currently watching in a convenient location.
  • Was a fan,.. Still am just less now. Sep 24, 2019

    By Darkwolvez
    Have always loved your app. Was thrilled when you add support for the Chrome cast, love all your originals, and you have a great selection of shows. Then, you did the Netflix thing, asking if I'm still watching after a 2 to 3 episodes,.. Sigh,.. Most obnoxious thing ever. I work from home and have the tv on while I'm working,.. Insanely annoying to have to take my phone out, unlock it, try to remember which episode I was on (as your app only some times plays the right one when I get back on to it, if my wife is watching and she has watched past what I have it just goes to that). Then wait for the app to open, load up, find the correct episode, then start it over, as half the time it just restarts the episode, try to use the tiny bar to fast forward to where I was,.. Sorry,I hate this new update,.. 2 stars off, love everything else.

  • Trouble while trying to chromecast Aug 10, 2021

    By Caioponce
    I can see the app’s quality is improving with new updates but I’m always facing a problem when trying to chromecast, because the button sometimes simply won’t show up! While my phone is connected to the TV and I can cast all other streaming apps o have on my phone, prime video is the only one I have to spend half an hour trying to make it work! So I would recommend either adding a permanent casting button or at least adding another fixed one in the setting, because when the first doesn’t show up you can at least trying to connect the app to the device going to the setting and then making the app work again. It’s the third time I’m deleting and reinstalling the app because it won’t work even after almost thirty minutes trying to make the button appear!
  • Not ready for Primetime Aug 22, 2020

    By michaelspringfield
    App has gotten increasingly more and more unstable in the last few weeks on my 4K Apple TV. App hangs on loading. I have to delete it and reinstall. Auto play on TV episodes is hit and miss as to whether or not it’s going to work. There is no autoplay setting that I can find in the Apple TV app since the addition of profiles. While we are on the subject of autoplay, the “are you still watching” is a nice feature but has horrible execution. The counter is apparently set to trigger after a certain number of episodes instead of on a timed interval. When you have a 4 year old wanting to watch Sarah and Duck and each episode is only 6-7 minutes you end up interacting with the app every 20 minutes or so. It would great if it did a timer/episode which ever is longer.

    Anyone else noticed the "subtle" change in how Prime works? Because I have! In fact I was in the middle of watching a movie when this seemed to take effect. The movie (Demonic - awesome movie) when I decided to save the last 25 minutes. Next day the "Prime" sign was gone. So I thought you now had to pay. But no, it said continue. And within 5 minutes, I had a 60 second advert pop up. 2 of them. They had nothing to do with movies. There were 10 of these. Another cash grab from Amazon. 💰💰
  • Takes too long to switch devices Dec 30, 2020

    By MusicChick94
    I love being able to watch shows and the low movie rental prices. However, what really annoys me is the fact that they limit the amount of devices that you can watch shows/movies on but then it takes forever to update when switching devices. I can’t count how many times I’ve tried switching from my phone to my tv for it to take over fifteen minutes for it to allow me to watch on the different device. No matter how many times I exit out of the app or turn off the device it continuously tells me that my video cannot play because it is “playing on another device.” If they are going to be that particular about how many devices can be used they should update their software so it runs faster. I shouldn’t have to wait fifteen minutes to continue my show on another device because their app doesn’t understand I’ve switched and closed out the app on other devices.
  • Too much greed Feb 26, 2020

    By nicknamesnottakenjustwanttostp
    I don’t mind commercials in free videos, but if I can’t rewind if I miss something what’s the point. Every time I try to rewind It gives me a commercial. I can’t rewind the movie!!! All due to your greed. Like you don’t get enough of my money. We are already pay for the service you would think you could err on the side of the paying viewer, not the sponsor. Show the price of a video free, free with ads, rent or buy without making me go into the movie page just to find out I have to pay if it want to see it. I realize this is another ploy to force more money out of us, but come on. Do you really need to be deceitful for more money? Just tell me in the thumbnail. So I don’t have to explain to my kid why we can’t see the movie he wanted to see, and I thought was included in my prime dues. Put a dollar sign in the thumbnail so I don’t have to waste time going back and forth between the main page and the individual movie pages.
  • Prime video sync flaw Nov 22, 2020

    By nckname1234
    Overall prime is good, but when I purchase a video on my prime account the video does not always appear in my account. I access prime on my phone, tablet, computer and TV and yet sometimes a video I’ve purchased and am watching on my computer, or any other device, may take weeks or months to show up in ‘My Stuff’ on my TV, or any other device. When I try to switch between devices to continue watching a video the film may not be there or may take weeks to appear. I thought this was a one time thing, because it first happen about two years ago, but I’ve noticed it happening since then and again today when I purchased a video on my tablet and then tried to watch the video on my TV, the video needed to be repurchased, which I’m not about to do. I don’t share my devices with anyone so there’s no issue with my account being mixed with someone else’s, it just seems to be a syncing flaw.

  • Can’t perform its basic functions May 1, 2021

    By Meeks McGoo
    Prime Video is terrible as a streaming service. Your account doesn’t sync, so if you watch something on your phone and try to continue on your tv, it has no memory of it and you have to go searching for your show again and find where you were. For shows you’ve never seen before, when you go to start it for the first time the app will randomly try to start you in the middle of some random season instead of at the very beginning of the show. If you stop a show with less than five minutes left and then come back, it’s gone on to the next episode automatically even though you didn’t finish the last one. Lastly, the subtitles randomly freak out and will just flash on the screen for a split second and disappear for huge segments of the show. A ridiculous amount of bugs to fix for such a popular and well financed service.
  • Oct 10, 2021

    By Anish Kumar
    Helpful to download movie and watch them anywhere. 2 stars because this app mixes regional language movies despite selecting English only. The language filter is a dummy key as is the tv shows and movies filter. The movie selection and availability is mediocre in quality and quantity. There are no adult movies available. Altogether a cheap money minting fraud gimmick by Amazon. A cheap suit.
  • Where's my library?!? Jun 12, 2018

    By Peky_69
    I know that you guys just love to introduce Prime content, that's pretty much useless abroad. But removing My Library, you know, movies that I bought and that I own, seems to me like adding a new bug, not fixing anything tbh. Just creating chaos out of the completely fine app. Maybe by intention. ============================== After contacting customer support turned out that since I'm abroad, the app just told to Prime that my country isn't the US anymore. That switched country and bought movies disappeared. Huuuuuuuge bug. Bought movies are just like original DVDs or Blue-rays, played on let's say US Blueray player. They must be playable everywhere. And please don't make automatic software decisions before asking user is that really what user wants. Those are mobile devices that we're talking about, meaning they're moving, sometimes across the world, not only across the US. Something to think about Amazon's PMs.

  • doesn’t work like it’s supposed to Dec 16, 2017

    By Zenais6464842
    So the app is pretty good when it works and it’s worked mostly well for the couple of years I’ve been a prime member. I like that if you tap the screen while watching something you can learn more about the actors or general trivia about the scene. It’s also nice that I could easily pick up where I left off. For a long time the last thing I watched would appear at the top. But I noticed lately that I sometimes have to search the title of what I was in the middle of watching if I stopped midway. It’s especially frustrating if I’m tired and the title doesn’t come to mind right away. The most frustrating problem I’ve had lately is videos not playing at all. I get an error message saying it can’t connect to the Internet. But I have no problems streaming videos or music in other apps or browser. It’ll be hours before it’ll let me watch anything.

Just you want to remove the word in terms and conditions selected randomly. That's better to us because we are wasting our time because the word randomly.

They don't care about our experience, they just take the monthly fee.

    This app needs being remade from scratch. Both Netflix and YouTube are better in every way. 720p quality and higher are banned on mainstream phones where Netflix and YouTube provide HD. Fast forward/rewind on TV is a disaster. Configuration of subtitles and languages is bad on phone, but even worse on the TV app. Commercials played before content EVEN PAYING PRIME. Content sorting logic is unexplicable. Seasons appear separated. Special episodes in series appear usually in the wrong order.

    Video Quality poor. Even with good Wifi or broadband connection the video quality is poor. One needs to pause video for 10 to 15 mins to start watching so that the video quality is moderate. Never had this issue with Netflix or Hotstar. No sure why such a big brand as Amazon can't fix this issue there for so many years now
  • Kinda useless Jan 7, 2021

    By no_nicknamebyme
    Stuff just doesn’t play anymore. A 1 hour video- I give up after waiting half an hour of loading for it to play. I seriously have to download videos for any of them to play. I’ve been in contact with them off and on for the past year and the only thing they can come up with is, close out/reopen, reboot device, delete/download the app, none of this has worked. Now, nothing plays at all. It’ll load for probably 15 minutes then it says there was a problem streaming or playing the video. Last time it did that, it also said there was a problem with the devices internet connection. Now, there is nothing wrong with my internet connection because at the same time, I can stream stuff of similar duration on another app and those NEVER take longer than 4-5 seconds to play. Also when I go into account settings it sits there and loads for a lot longer than it should. BTW, same story on 2 of my iPhones and yes, I have the resolution set to the lowest level

    Playback video quality on Android tv app is very poor. Videos available up to 4k are only displayed in max SD format, making it very bad experience on a large tv display. Problem disappears when I cast it from the phone, or on prime video website (where you can choose video quality-unlike the app). Major issue.

    Bad to make Prime tv & Shopping app dependent on the same login. Bad to leave our shopping app signed into for anyone to hack/steal acct. Also, I pay extra for Hallmark. It says a season is free with Prime Membership, I also pay for. Then 1/2 way into the season you start charging for episodes. That's just wrong! Lies! Why buy a channel and only get half the episodes then pay again to watch. Worse then Hulu or Netflix. No loyalty to customers. God will get YOU! VENGEANCE IS GOD'S & I'm His child

    Worst streaming app. Unwanted rating info that won't go off screen. Obsence unskippable content at the start of a new playback. No control over display settings. Not a lot of new content available. Full of old content. Bad resume logic. Doesn't resume correctly. Unwanted info and trivia showing and blocking screen which cannot be removed. Unwanted ad to shows inside the app showing without permission. Go learn from youtube.
