amazon wallet

Amazon is one of the largest online retailers in the world so its safe to say that it has millions of credit cards on file. There was speculation recently that the company would launch an app soon that would allow people to use digital versions of the card they already have on file with Amazon for online purchases. That hasn’t happened yet but Amazon has released a new Wallet app rather quietly. For now all it does is let you store and use loyalty cards and gift cards.

Its pretty easy to load up cards in Amazon Wallet. Start by scanning the loyalty or gift card and then save the digital copy on the phone. These cards can then be used in stores where they’re accepted. The app can also be used to check the balance on these cards.

The app itself is pretty basic and it comes preloaded on Amazon Fire Phone, which is going to be shipped in the very near future. Its also available in beta version for Android users from the Google Play Store. No word as yet about when the Amazon Wallet app is going to be released for the iPhone.

Many large retail stores and restaurant chains are supported so this should help people who tend to use up loyalty or gift cards quite frequently. Hopefully at some point in time Amazon will add the ability to use credit cards through its Wallet app as well.

A few weeks back there were rumors that Apple had roped Lakers’ legend Kobe Bryant to test out its new wearable device. Bryant was also spotted out and about at Apple’s HQ in Cupertino, California. As expected there was endless speculation about the purpose of his visit and neither the company nor Bryant’s camp said anything about the visit. In a new interview Bryant himself reveals that he did indeed spend a day at Apple, interacting with design czar Jony Ive to “talk product.”

Apple is yet to officially announced the iPhone 6 and yet several online sellers in China have already started taking preorders for the next generation smartphones. China is one of the most lucrative markets in the world as smartphone adoption there grows whereas it reaches a saturation point in the West. Which is why a lot of companies are focusing on this crucial market, Apple being one of them. These online sellers require people to pay a deposit in order to secure a unit when the iPhone 6 finally comes out later this year.

ipad mini

In a few months Apple is going to unveil its new smartphones and tablets. This year the company’s third iPad mini is going to be released. Last year it updated the tablet with a Retina display and a faster processor. Rumor has it that this time around there’s a big change coming. The tablet’s moniker will apparently be changed to Air primarily due to the fact that it is going to be 30 percent thinner than its predecessor. Apple crowned the 9.7-inch iPad with the Air moniker last year so it wouldn’t be a surprise if it did the same with the iPad mini.

One of the things I like about binge watching TV shows on Netflix is that I don’t have to do anything to launch the next episode when the one I am currently watching ends. This feature is known as Post-Play and works with all TV shows available on the online streaming service. However this feature only works if you’re viewing Netflix using a PC or mobile app. Netflix’s Apple TV channel, or app if you will, has never had this feature, but that might soon be about to change.
