Amazon to monitor their app storeAmazon’s upcoming app store has been in the pipeline for quite some time now, but we still have yet to see any sign of it. According to some reports online, it looks like Amazon might be launching their app store in the near future. In light of the recent malware incident on the Android Market, Amazon has announced that they will be checking and monitoring the apps that go up for sale on their app store. This means that their app store will have a tighter sense of security than the currently unmonitored Android Market. Developers who design badly coded or useless apps will probably be denied from selling apps through Amazon. Quality control is a nice touch that will give it a leg up on the Android Market and could give users one reason to purchase apps from them instead of Google’s app store. Amazon has also announced that after they launch their Android app store, they will be bringing it to other mobile platforms in the future. Expect to see it on webOS and possibly QNX or BlackBerry OS. As to when the app store will launch? We’ve yet to find out, but stay tuned and we’ll let you know when it does.
