Window Shopping

I played around a bit today with Amazon's new Windowshop app, and I must say I'm a bit disappointed. While the idea is pretty cool, there is no way to correct any of the recommendations within the app itself. I had to spend a half hour on their website marking things that I'd already purchased, or were gifts, or were items that I simply didn't want influencing the results.

The fact that I couldn't do this within the app seems like a pretty big oversight and makes the app itself mostly useless for browsing. If everything shown needs fixing, of what use is it?
