Amazon has announced that it now has more than 240,000 apps available to download in Amazon Appstore, over the last year the company has tripled the number of apps and games available in its app store.
Amazon are holding a press event later this week, the company is expected to launch the first Amazon smartphone, so it obviously wants everyone to know that there are lots of apps available for its devices ahead of their smartphone launch.
“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.”
The company has said that developers who are making apps for the Amazon Appstore are making at least, if not more money than other platforms.
