After receiving complaints that its smartphone app icon resembled Adolf Hitler, Amazon has changed the logo to end the similarities.

In January, the retail company debuted its new icon that featured a brown box and a piece of "ripped" blue tape over Amazon's smile logo. Some thought the tape looked a lot like Hitler's mustache.

The new icon, which debuted recently without any fanfare, now displays a smoothed piece of blue tape folder over.
