Amazon’s primary website is not very mobile-friendly, but that hasn’t gotten in the way of the company becoming a behemoth of retail in North America. Thankfully, there is an Amazon app, which distills the contents of the website to a version that works much better on mobile devices. Newer versions of the app come with Amazon Alexa, which is an AI assistant that can offer an almost hands free experience. Amazon already has plenty of Black Friday specials live that are waiting for you to claim.
