Journey to the Amazon, Store not Jungle (Part 2: Amazon App Store)

Today I’d like to talk about the Amazon App Store for Android.

Though the Amazon’s App Store may not have as many Android apps as Google’s own Market, its selection of apps is very good and well tested( no malware ) Another advantage I see of having Amazons App Store is the ability to load it on other non Google certified hardware such as tablets from Vizio, Velocity Micro etc….

Of course the best bonus is the FREE app of the day which is prominently displayed at the top of the App Store, which encourages users to come back daily to see what free apps they can pick up, as well as see discounts on other popular programs.

I still patiently wait for my Amazon Kindle Fire to arrive next month. Leave some comments.

Journey to the Amazon Store (Part 1 Android Submission)

I’ve been working a shortcut app to go a mobile site.

As such I have been attempting to submit it to the Amazon store. The process had been a little tricky getting the images correctly but I think this time it might actually pass. A minimum of 3 screen shots is required as well as a 114×114 icon and a 512×512.

The mobile app currently exists on the Android Marketplace as well as App Brain, but check it out on Amazon when they get around to approving it.

My next posting will be about Amazons Cloud Player and Store

Amazon Kindle Fire No. 1 ‘Most Wished For’ product

Amazon.com Inc.’s Kindle Fire tablet ranked as the top ‘Most Wished For’ product at the retailer this week amid strong demand for the tablet. Source

Will the Kindle Fire suceed when its released next month. I belive so.

On my next post I will delve further into the Amazon Ecosystem with Amazon MP3 and Amazon’s Cloud Player.

Stay tuned.

Journey to the Amazon. (Store not Jungle)

For those who have not seen it. The new Amazon Kindle Fire will be out this November. In preparation for this new device, I have decided to try out the various Amazon Android applications.

I will post my thoughts on using Amazon services on my HTC Sensation 4G and then compare the experience to the Kindle Fire when released.
