Amazon announced the Amazon Instant Video app for iPad earlier this year.

The Amazon Instant Video App for iPhone and iPod touch offers features including:
- “Your Watchlist” feature that lets customers make a list of all the movies and TV episodes they want to watch in the future, regardless of whether they own the video or not, making it easy to keep track of specific videos for later viewing.
