Amazon has announced the arrival of its latest app - bringing the world's biggest e-retail store to your Android handset.

Like the iOS app, the Android version includes a barcode scanner so you can scan things when you're out and about to see how much you could save by buying online, and you can also make price comparisons across multiple sellers.

There's also 1-Click buying, Prime member support, wish-lists and order tracking.

“Customers in the UK have been requesting an Amazon shopping application on their Android devices and we are thrilled to bring them the Amazon App for Android", said Greg Greeley, vice president EU retail at Amazon.

Amazon for Android is available in the Android Market now, and it's free.
