Carry the world's biggest online marketplace in your pocket with the free Amazon Mobile app. This shopping companion allows you to peruse Amazon's vast selection, view and edit orders, and even scan bar codes in-store to compare Amazon's offers with those of your local retailer. This could get you price-matching deals at stores such as Walmart. Be warned, though; the app's 1-Click buying function might lead to impulse purchases for you and your loved ones.
