Amazon’s App Notifications

As I buy a reasonable amount of stuff from Amazon, I use their mobile app a bit. It’s a relatively convenient way to manage my Amazon transactions.

It also usefully sends you updates, using Android’s notifications system, to let you know when your items have been shipped, or if they’re available for collection should you use Amazon Lockers.

In other words, if you see the tell-tale lowercase “a” on your device, it’s worth checking out.

Speaking of which, they’ve just sent me an alert. Let’s see what’s happening…

Um thanks, but no thanks Amazon. I didn’t order that, and nor do I want it. And that’s apparently a “personalised” recommendation!

Note: In your app go to Notifications and switch Personalised Notifications off. Then you just get the more useful ones should you need them.
