Amazon has updated its Instant Video app to version 2.1. Most notably, the update adds AirPlay support which has been a long-requested feature. This means that Amazon video content can now be watched on the Apple TV, via an iOS device with this app.

In addition, the update adds deeper integration with IMDB — which Amazon owns — to show information about cast, crew and other trivia. Users can also see iTunes-esque metadata such as “customers who watched this also watched” and drill down to other videos featuring the same director. Alongside with the usual performance and bug fix improvements, the app also allows users to download more than one video simultaneously for offline viewing.
