Although it went unmentioned at Apple's big Apple Watch event on Monday, an Amazon spokesperson hinted to TechCrunch that the company is looking "to expand to other devices", suggesting an Apple Watch app could be in the works for the device's launch next month, or sometime in the future.

TechCrunch believes the app will be largely similar to the Android Wear Amazon app, letting users search using their voice, access their Wishlist, and use Amazon's 1-click check-out for shopping in a hurry.

When asked for an official statement, the online retailer kept a vague description over the future of the company's appearance on the new Apple wearable, though given the ubiquity of the service, it's hard to imagine an Amazon Apple Watch app not showing up at all.

“Amazon is constantly innovating on behalf of our customers. We are committed to being anywhere customers want to shop. That includes watches. We have an Amazon shopping app for Android Wear and will look to expand to other devices.”

Multiple third-party apps were showcased at the event on Monday, but few were actually given in-depth moments at Apple's already packed keynote address. Most recently, Fandango confirmed its movie-focused service will arrive as an app on the Watch in time for the device's April 24 launch date.

Looking forward to reading my Kindle titles on the Watch screen.

It's such a burden having to carry around Kindle/iPad/iPhone just to read things.

In the old days people read REAL books. Anyone using a Kindle deserves only scorn for being lazy.

Pfft, anyone reading from paper instead of REAL stone tablets deserves scorn for being lazy.

I see this more being used for a 'Your recent order from Amazon has just shipped / been delivered' type glance than a 'let's browse the entirety of Amazon on a 42mm device' type thing.

That is really hard-core!

I was going to stipulate that the printing must be done with hand set movable type.The illustrations must be wood engravings. This newfangled offset printing process is taking the easy way out.

Hand-lettered books on papyrus scrolls are also acceptable.
