Amazon’s Instant Video iOS (s AAPL) app, which allows users to watch video content purchased from Amazon and stream Prime Instant Video content, will now work better with Apple devices: In an update on Tuesday, Amazon (s AMZN) added the ability to stream content from the app to Apple TV via AirPlay.
The update was a long time coming: The Instant Video iOS app was first released in July 2012. On iTunes, the app had garnered thousands of negative reviews for its lack of compatibility with AirPlay.
Apple TV still doesn’t have a native Amazon Instant Video app (Roku does), but this might be a step toward that.
The update also included more integration with IMDB, which is owned by Amazon.
