Amazon appstore for Android apps is coming to the UK

The Amazon Appstore, a marketplace for US-based customers to download Android apps, is coming to the UK this summer. Customers in Germany, France, Italy and Spain will also be able to buy and download apps from the app store, which offers a free app every day.

Developers are now being invited to submit apps for distribution.

Jim Adkins, Vice President of the Amazon Appstore, said “We are thrilled at the success our developers have experienced on the Amazon platform in the last year. Some developers have seen revenue double since the launch of In-App Purchasing. We’re excited to open the door to even more opportunity by expanding app sales outside the US. We see tremendous potential for current developers in our distribution program to grow with the international expansion. We also encourage new developers to join and participate in the platform’s growth.”

There’s still no news about Amazon’s Android-powered Kindle Fire tablet becoming available in the UK, although it’s rumoured that the device could be released in Europe later this year.
