Amazon Prime Instant Video is now available on a wider range of Android tablets. Previously, the on-demand video app was only compatible with Amazon's own Fire range of slates.

The app is up for grabs from the Amazon Appstore now. If it doesn't download, head to your Settings menu, click Security and make sure you've toggled the option named 'unknown sources' (this lets you download apps from other app stores than Google Play).

As well as allowing you to watch films and TV shows from Amazon Prime Instant Video, the service boasts Amazon's X-Ray feature that brings up info on cast and crew members. Which should spell an end to those "What was she in...?" conversations.

X-Ray is powered by IMDB, so is pretty exhaustive.

Using Prime Instant Video, you can also browse for titles on the Amazon website from within the mobile browser and stream straight from there.

Sadly, there's no Chromecast support as yet. You can project your screen to the nearest TV, but Chomecast support would make things considerably simpler.
