Amazon has just updated their Appstore to version 1.11, which will be an alternative to the Google Android Market – so those who are rocking to the Appstore (which has been getting into some legal wrangles with Apple, of course) ought to be able to receive an update for the client application on your smartphone. You should be on the receiving end of a notification for the update in the bar, and if you decide to follow up on that, you will enjoy the refresh which delivers a whole lot of fixes as well as improvements. Among the most notable fix would be improved support for Android 2.0 smartphones, while the entire Appstore is touted to be more stable than ever before.
For example, when you submit a review, you will now be able to see a Thank You page to let you know that your precious review has been submitted successfully, where previously you wouldn’t be able to know on the outset. Not only that, Amazon threw in the ability to define your pen name upon submitting a customer review. Apart from that, videos will no longer auto-resume when left idle, and support for Android 2.0 and above devices have also improved.
You can also expect better support for health and stability reporting, while the Star rating consistency issue has been fixed, not to mention UI inconsistencies that appear on the tablet homepage.
