Amazon Mobile for iPhone and iPad gets the iOS 7 makeover in Europe [Update: U.S. too!]

Amazon has updated its mobile shopping app for the iPhone and iPad with a shiny new iOS 7 redesign, but not in the U.S. it seems. The update comes from Amazon's European based branch, and at this time the North American app looks stuck on the old iOS 6 version. But if you can get it, this version will still let you shop from Amazon U.S. and Canada.

And it's a pretty nice redesign all told. There doesn't appear to be anything new added, just the iOS 7 razzle dazzle, the swiping back gestures, it all makes us happy. Well, as happy as we can be when we're spending money, anyway. Grab it now from the App Store at the link below, and we can't help but think the North American app must surely follow soon.

Update: Looks like the U.S. version was just slower to make it out, and you folks can go ahead and download the redesigned version for yourselves right now!

Nice. I hope they give the Audible app a similar make-over, as the current version is hideous. It looks like it belongs on a Kindle, and that's not a pretty place to be.

Woohoo! I've been waiting for some iOS updates to these apps. I hope that Amazon adds the option to use the camera on our phones to apply gift cards, like iTunes offers.
You peoples across the pond seem to be getting all the first dibs on this new stuff lately - good on ya!

It looks awesome :) I don't understand why it came to the UK before the US though I thought it would come us first, Oh well I'm happy for all the apps finally starting to get the IOS 7 theme going cause the old keyboard is starting to get annoying. The only app that I hope would open it eyes and make the move is Tapatalk come on with IOS 7 already. :)

Very cool. Just in time for the holidays. Not sure how many others do this, but whenever I'm in a store looking to buy something, I always scan it through Amazon first to see if I'm getting a decent price. I don't mind paying a couple bucks more to avoid shipping time, but if they're overcharging, I'll just do a one click order in Amazon instead.

I too just updated the Amazon shopping app... Other than the GUI refresh, all the old, familiar features and navigation look the same. :(

I really like that so many of my favorite apps have finally adopted the iOS7 format and that I didn't have to re-pay for them like I kept reading about.
