‘Amazon Appstore’ coming to Android

amazonappstoreAmazon have plans to release their own ‘Appstore’ for the Android mobile operating system.

The Apps on Amazon’s store will go through a testing and approval process before being allowed on the store. This is similar to the way Microsoft handle their Indie Games, Arcade games on the Xbox 360 – and yes, how Apple go about their App Store.

Amazon hope to takle the problems Google have experienced with their Market application and its quality control – Sexy Girls Wallpapers anyone?!

Here is what the Amazon Appstore team had to say:

At Amazon, we start with the customer and work backwards, and we’re always looking for ways to improve the customer experience.  The sheer number of apps available today makes it hard for customers to find high-quality, relevant products – and developers similarly struggle to get their apps noticed.  Amazon’s innovative marketing and merchandising features are designed to help customers find and discover relevant products from our vast selection, and we’re excited to apply those capabilities to the apps market segment.

This can only be good news for us Android users as it promises high quality apps and therefore, in theory, high quality developers to develop for the OS. We can expect to see the Appstore hit our phones late this year.  Head over to the Amazon Appstore Dev page for more info
