Amazon Appstore Client Finally Gets A Big Update From v5 to v7 – Includes New Design And Speed Improvements

Amazon Appstore Client Finally Gets A Big Update From v5 to v7 – Includes New Design And Speed Improvements

Amazon's Android Appstore held great promise when it was announced, but the reality has often proven annoying to use. A big part of that was the terrible Appstore app that was used to install purchased content on a device. Today things are getting better in that department. The Amazon Appstore client has jumped from v5 to v7 and has gotten a complete UI overhaul in the process.

The new UI is still recognizable as Amazon, but it looks more like the updated Kindle Fire tablets, and less like something designed explicitly to taunt you.

NBA 2K14 Released Exclusively On The Amazon Appstore For $7.99... DJ'ed By LeBron James

There seem to be two distinct AAA strategies evolving in the mobile gaming world: make a premium product and charge a premium price (typified by most of Square-Enix's RPGs) or make a premium product that's free or incredibly cheap and make people pay for almost everything (Electronic Arts, Glu, and many others... including Square-Enix). With NBA 2K14, 2K Games is standing in stark contrast to EA's blockbuster Madden and FIFA series.

Unique Puzzle Game Quell Memento Is $1.99 In The Amazon Appstore, Coming To Google Play June 29th

It's not often that a puzzle game transcends the relatively tight boundaries of its genre to try and tell a larger story, but that's the idea behind Fallen Tree Games' Quell Memento. The only character is an old man, sitting idly in his ramshackle house, trying desperately to hang onto his life's memories. As you play through the game, the puzzles unlock his memories by thematically mirroring the objects inside the house.

Amazon Appstore Updated To Version 5.0, Adds Support For Nearly 200 Countries

Gordon Gekko tells us that "Greed is Good," a sentiment that I happen to agree with under the circumstances. n Amazon's continuing effort to be the first place everybody turns to for their Internet purchases, the online retail giant has updated its Android Appstore to v5.0 and now supports "nearly 200" countries. Thanks to an announcement last month, we know that this expansion propels the precise count from merely 7 markets up to a shocking 195.

[Deal Alert] Multiple Award Winner, 10000000, Is Today's Free App Of The Day On Amazon (Reg. $1.99)

If you have been keeping up with Amazon's Free App Of The Day, you've probably amassed a really big collection of pretty bad apps. In fact, since the launch of the Appstore in March 2011, only a couple dozen winners have graced the front page with a $0 price tag. Today we're lucky enough to see another one of those rare gems, 10000000 ("ten million"), for everybody to enjoy at no cost.

Amazon Coins Virtual Currency Available Now, $5 Credit For Kindle Fire Owners Makes It Slightly Less Awful

Amazon Coins Virtual Currency Available Now, $5 Credit For Kindle Fire Owners Makes It Slightly Less Awful

Earlier this year, Amazon announced that it was preparing a proprietary virtual currency specifically for its Appstore. Then the incorrigible Eric Ravenscraft spent a few thousand words explaining exactly why Amazon Coins, and any system that substitutes real money for meaningless points, is just a pretense for sucking money out of people's wallets. If you can't wait to pay Amazon's tax on those without common sense, you can now hand over your real dollars for fake ones to spend on apps and in-app purchases.

Amazon Appstore Prepares For A Global Push: Availability Coming To 195 Countries Including In-App Purchases [Update: Full List]

At the moment, the Amazon Appstore is available in the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and Japan. But that's hardly enough for Amazon's global ambitions. In a press release, the company announced plans to widen the Appstore to "nearly 200 countries" across North and South America, Europe, Asia, and Africa. A specific timeframe was also absent, but prospective developers can manage their international distribution on the Mobile App Distribution Portal.
