android apps, kindle apps, Zappos App for Android, Zappos Mobile, Zappos Mobile App v3.0, Zappos mobile apps, Zappos Mobile team, Zappos software engineersToday, the Zappos.com mobile team released the latest version of the Zappos App (version 3.0) for Android and Kindle. This release contains the most significant changes and feature updates since the inception of the Zappos Android App. Read on to hear more from Zappos’ mobile software engineers Matt Runo and Matt Kranzler (a.k.a. “The MATTS”) about some of the new changes. Happy shopping!

 

Even Easier Shopping and Shipping

In a world where you have too many credit cards or your spouse shares your tablet, the new version of the Zappos app helps you keep things straight by allowing you to color code and nickname your credit/debit cards (i.e. His Visa, Her Visa) so you can quickly identify the card you want to use for your purchase. 

Redesigned My Account Page

Account page redesign includes product thumbnails for each order and a simple selection process for shipping and payment methods.

Redesigned Saved Payment Screen

Create an easier shopping experience by storing your payment types, organized with easy-to-view icons.

Saved Payment Custom Color Theming

Do you use more than one payment type for shopping? Customize the color of each of your payment types!

 

Upon purchase, our new UPS package tracking widget (below) shows you how many days, hours or minutes until your package should be delivered. You can track as many orders as you would like, and as an added bonus you can track any UPS packages, not just those from Zappos.

Intuitive User Interface

Our Android app now looks and works well on all Android-powered platforms due to the responsive design we incorporated. The new product pages are buttery smooth and our tablet app features fancy animations as well. We went out of our way to make sure that UI controls are positioned just where you'd expect them - right under your fingers - no matter what device you're using the app on. We’ve also made it easier to expand our high-res photos to full-screen: just tap on the photo with two fingers or hit the Expand-O-Matic button in the action bar and voilá.

By working with some new features in the Android operating system, we're able to store your account on your device instead of requiring a PIN entry, and we can log you in automagically. Of course, you can always log out if you'd prefer not have your account stored.

 

Fast and Easy Checkout

Our entire checkout flow has been re-envisioned from the ground up. We spent hours watching our users work through the checkout process and found several places where we could make things better… so we did!

  • The biggest change in the checkout process you’ll see is that it is now contained within a single screen, making the entire process clean and simple
  • We’ve added a visual indicator so you know how many steps you have left before your final checkout page
  • We redesigned the shipping address, shipping method and payment method selection process to make things easy to find and select.

Hi

Sorry for the delay in our response. Great question! Due to technical limitations we currently do not have the capability to providing Amazon shared log in on the native mobile apps. However, the technology will becoming available to us soon and we'll be launching that feature once we complete the coding. Once we release it we will give everyone a heads up on our Twitter account @zappos_mobile We're pretty excited to get the feature live.

Although, we are currently offering the Amazon shared log in feature on our iPhone mobile optimized version (m.zappos.com)available through the iPhone browser.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have further questions.

Thanks

GREETINGS,

I couldn't find the shoes I was looking for. After about 5 of the 17 pages, I got frustrated.

Is there a way to select a style visually? Casual, athletic, boat(well boat is pretty easy) are too generic. Give me some general shapes of shoes that I can see and pick to further reduce my search.

Thanks for your time,

Clayton
