Customer Reviews of the Amazon Underground App:
“The design of the App is not ugly and it is alright but it could have been a lot better. The App is not that great to look at. The drop-down menu on the left side gives you quick access to all of the Amazon’s sections. However, this seems counterproductive since there are so many sections, it is almost distracting. In addition to Amazon Underground’s Apps, you can also find washing machines, books, televisions, video games consoles, etc.”
“Amazon Underground is an interesting alternative to Google Play that you can use to download all types of Apps. The best part is definitely all the paid versions of the Apps that are offered for free.”
