In terms of functionality, the iOS app is quite similar to its Android counterpart. One can look for or explore products across all its categories and filter results according to one’s needs. Once you have selected a product, you can read customer reviews as well as pay for the product right from inside the app. Additionally, one can also track the order after having paid for it. The iOS app misses out on a few features though that is available on Android like barcodes and voice based search, and the single sharing menu.
We gave the app a try and it worked quite well. We managed to find what we were looking for and also placed an order for a book we wanted to buy. The app still lacks the design language used by many of the apps that have been updated for iOS 7, but it is something that can change with future updates.
You can head over to the App Store to download the app for free.
