If there's one thing Amazon knows how to do, it's sell stuff to as many people as it can. Today the company has announced that 41 new countries and territories now have access to its online Android marketplace. These areas are spread throughout Africa, the Middle East, Oceania, and Southeast Asia.


All apps aren't automatically available in each location, as there are still local restrictions in place in certain areas. Existing apps will automatically go live everywhere except in those that deem otherwise.

Here's the full list of new locations:

  1. Algeria
  2. Azerbaijan
  3. Bahrain
  4. Bangladesh
  5. Brunei Darussalam
  6. Burkina Faso
  7. Chad
  8. Djibouti
  9. Egypt
  10. Eritrea
  11. Gambia
  12. Guinea
  13. Indonesia
  14. Jordan
  15. Kazakhstan
  16. Kuwait
  17. Kyrgyzstan
  18. Lebanon
  19. Malaysia
  20. Maldives
  21. Mali
  22. Mauritania
  23. Morocco
  24. Niger
  25. Nigeria
  26. Oman
  27. Pakistan
  28. Palestinian Territories
  29. Qatar
  30. Saudi Arabia
  31. Senegal
  32. Sierra Leon
  33. Singapore
  34. Somalia
  35. Tajikistan
  36. Tunisia
  37. Turkey
  38. Turkmenistan
  39. United Arab Emirates
  40. Uzbekistan
  41. Yemen

This expansion opens up software to millions of consumers and creates more opportunities for developers to make money. The Amazon Appstore now reaches 236 countries and territories around the world, significantly more than Google Play. Here is Amazon's complete list.

    Amazon Appstore and Egypt? Sweet!

    Does that mean I can give up using Ultrasurf/SurfEasy without facing the geographical issues?

    On one side i am REALLY happy that i can now get free apps in my country, where previously i had to skip all deals because Amazon App Store was not available in my country Pakistan.

    Last night i spend most of might getting those $100 worth of free apps (Thursday, Friday deal) and also the Free App of the day. And i found out the hard way that Amazon App Store app on Android is a TERRIBLE TERRIBLE app :S
    - Terrible performance.
    - Cannot skip downloads
    - Would accumulate my SDCard with unnecessary downloaded data which i can't delete (unless the SDCard fills up completely, and app store would flush that data).

    For now, i am thinking, how the f*ck am i supposed to skip my downloads. Is it necessary that i download ALL the apps the instant i purchase/get them? :S This is ABSURD.

    Any help?

    just like after so many years all of a sudden people in southeast asia are dying to use amazon app store. I boycott products/services which don't wanna do business in our countries. Why would I earn them profit when they are not treating all their consumers equally.
