iPhone software aids Amazon shoppers

Karelia's Amaphone speeds up online shopping

Karelia Software has announced the beta version of Amaphone, software that makes it easier to shop at Amazon using an iPhone.

Dan Wood, cofounder of Karelia Software explains: "When you're trying to search Amazon.com on iPhone's version of Safari the experience is a frustrating one; with Amaphone you can focus on getting prices, checking availability, and ordering direct from Amazon.com in a fraction of the time."

Company co-founder Terrence Talbot adds: "When you have to rely on the Edge network, the wait can be excruciating - over a minute and a half to load Amazon.com. Amaphone makes Amazon.com a breeze on the iPhone, however fast - or slow - your network connection."

Amaphone is a web-based application that users access by visiting amaphone.com on their iPhone browser. It allows users to enter search terms, browse by category, and make purchases directly from Amazon.com
