I am rather confident that a slew of Android users out there would not mind seeing the addition of Amazon Appstore right smack to the heart of their Android handset, making it a second marketplace for them to check out apps and other reasonably interesting items along the way. Of course, not everyone will be technologically savvy, and to arrive at the Amazon Appstore and perform an installation can be quite a hassle. However, that ought not be the case any longer, since Amazon has taken the proactive step of ensuring that its Appstore is now part of its regular Android app.
Basically, the moment you install the Amazon app that is available over on the Google Play Store, all that you need to do is to open it up and tap on “Shop by Departments”. Once you have entered inside that section, you will be able to find the complete Amazon Appstore under the title “Apps and Games”. The store itself was first launched on September 9th earlier this year, but that was performed on the quiet, so not too many people were aware of its existence.
Amazon claims that apart from the Appstore, the Android app itself does carry hundreds of millions of items which can be purchased using their “1-click” system. That would translate to over 200,000 movies as well as TV shows which one is able to rent or buy, not to mention another 30 million tunes to amble along. For those who would love to read, you will be spoilt for choice with over two million Kindle books to pick from. Oh yeah, how about benefitting from 5GB of photo back-up space for free via Amazon Cloud Drive? [Press Release]
