Step #3: After signing into the Amazon account, you need to select default video quality setting in the app. For this, tap on Settings icon and then tap on Streaming & Downloading→ Download Quality option.
Recommended qualities: Good or Better. Since your iPhone and iPad has smaller screen, anything higher than Better will kill the joy of watching movies or videos. And this higher quality will take much time to download and occupy more storage.
