The Amazon UK app for Android has arrived in the Android Market, offering users in the UK the opportunity to search the retailer’s catalog, compare prices and read reviews, and make purchases directly from their handsets. The app also supports barcode scanning, so that you can compare Amazon’s price to what you’d pay in a bricks & mortar store.

Prices are charged in GBP and the app supports 1-Click and Prime membership. You’ll need an Android 1.6 or newer device; it’s a free download from the Market.
