Amazon Expands Appstore To Nearly 200 Countries, Welcomes Developers To Distribution Portal
Previously, the Amazon Appstore for Android was available in the U.S., the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and Japan.
Before the big summer expansion, developers can get going by hitting up the Amazon Mobile App Distribution Portal. Amazon isn’t shy about claiming that its Appstore is a good one for developers to work with. The company says that devs involved with the Appstore are making good money and drawing in users.
“The success is being driven by Amazon’s large customer base and industry-leading e-commerce features like 1-Click purchasing, Amazon’s APIs for In-App Purchasing (IAP) and A/B Testing, and GameCircle, Amazon’s gaming experience for Kindle Fire,” reads a news release. The release also noted that Amazon GameCircle-enabled games pulled in 83% more revenue per users than games without it, which is a notable statistic.
In addition to a certain level of dominance in the online retail space, Amazon has played the disrupter in various markets, such as tablets, ereaders, and more. This expansion of the Appstore is more of the same.
