Amazon announced yesterday Amazon Santa, a free app for Kindle Fire and iPad that makes it fun and easy for children and their parents to create holiday Wish Lists to share with friends, family and Mr. Claus. The Amazon Santa application provides a visual Wish List creation experience designed for children to browse and search more than 500,000 kid friendly items available with them. With a little help from their parents, kids can make a holiday Wish List to share with loved ones, making it easier than ever for family and friends to give the right gifts this holiday season.
Amazon Santa app gives kids and parents access to an online catalog of family-friendly toys and games, movies and TV shows, books, music, and video games. With the tap of a finger, kids and their parents can explore by a product category or type a search to find the perfect gift and instantly create a Wish List. Parents can review and edit the Wish List as needed, and easily share each child’s list with grandparents, aunts and uncles, brothers and sisters, and family friends. Wish Lists shared via the Amazon Santa app can only be viewed by family and friends who receive the Wish List link. The list shows recipients wished-for items, including those that have already been purchased, helping to eliminate duplicate gifts.
The new Amazon Santa app is optimized for tablets like the iPad and the new Kindle Fire. It is available for free on the Amazon App Store and on iTunes.
