Amazon just released the Amazon Instant Video app for the iPad July 31, 2012. Version is 1.0


It's not a great app yet. I can get it to play on the iPad (by itself). When I hook up the iPad to the TV using the Digital AV Adapter, the app gets very unstable, crashes at times, doesn't load shows....basically doesn't work. Virtually everything else on the iPad displays fine on the TV using the adapter. I've tried Safari, Netflix, and a couple of games just to see if the problem was with the iPad or the app. The problem is with the app.


I emailed Amazon support via feedback within the app, and got responses back similar to this:

"I'm so sorry for the trouble you facing with the Instant videos which you want to play on TV.

I understand now a days all the TV's are HDMI connected but I assure you that we are working for the improvements required on this field.

The Amazon Instant Video app for iPad does not support playback on HDMI-connected TVs.

Customer feedback like yours helps us continue to improve the service we provide. I've forwarded your feedback to our Amazon Instant Video team for consideration as we make future improvements."


I find it hard to believe they designed it to not work that way-I replied and asked them if it was...have not heard back yet.



Has anyone been able to view Amazon Instant Video on their TV from an iPad ? If yes, how did you do it.?
