Amazon.com, Inc. (AMZN) Appstore selection nearly triples in the past year
Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) has announced that the Amazon Appstore selection has almost tripled in the past year. Amazon’s Appstore now has over 240,000 apps and games. It is now available at nearly 200 countries. Customers have spent hundreds of millions of Amazon Coins on apps, games, and in-app items.
The number of new developers that joined the Amazon Appstore per month close to doubled in the last year.
“Developers tell us that they experience improved reach, greater monetization, and, oftentimes, higher revenue when they have their apps and games in the Amazon Appstore,” said Mike George, Vice President of Amazon Appstore and Games. “But this is just the beginning—we’re building more services and capabilities for developers and more Android-based APIs based on their feedback. Most Android apps just work on Kindle Fire, and with an Appstore made for Android devices, Amazon’s Appstore can help developers distribute their apps on Android devices all over the world. It’s a great time for developers to bring their apps to the Amazon Appstore.”
