Some of you would have probably noticed that Amazon has started pushing out updates for its Appstore today. It looks like the company is preparing for its launch of the Kindle Fire Android tablet which is arriving next week. The new update brings the app up to version 2.0, introduces a sleeker, new UI with a gray and orange color scheme, and the usual bug fixes.
The update also introduces in-app purchases (one time purchases and subscriptions) as well as parental controls for in-app purchases, the ability to review permissions on detail pages prior to purchasing apps, faster downloads and shorter load times. If you haven’t received the update notification, or you don’t have the Amazon Appstore, you can manually download it by heading over to Amazon’s Appstore website.
