What's the worst part of Netflix? For most of us, it's trying to figure out what to watch. There's just too much to choose from! But if you don't have an Internet connection, that's no problem - you won't be watching anything. This could be problematic for road trips, flights and other places you might find with a spotty Wi-Fi connection.

If you're an Amazon Prime subscriber, however, you won't be having the problem. The online retail and streaming giant has announced that its Prime customers can now access its video library offline, all you need it the Amazon Prime Video app. Click here to get it for Apple devices and click here for the Android version.

The new feature lets you download a small selection of the Prime-available selections to your phone or tablet, which you can easily delete when you're done watching to save storage space on your mobile gadget. After downloading however, you will have up to 30 days to watch your selection before it disappears.

The special feature is free to use, however, there is the annual $99 for Prime membership. Is a Prime membership for you? Click here to see some of its special offerings.

To download a movie, all you need to do is select your titles then tap the download icon. To watch, all you need to do is open your Library within the app and tap the "Watch Now" button or play icon. Delete it when you're done by tapping "Delete Download." It's all that easy.
