As well as announcing that they would be increasing the price of the Amazon Prime service today to $99, Amazon has also announced over on their Web Services Blog they have now opened up their Amazon AppStream service to all interested developers and parties.
Amazon AppStream enables developers to build complex applications that can be run from simple hardware devices, and allows developers from being constrained by the computing power of the mobile or desktop device.
Amazon explained in their press release : “Today we are taking the next step forward. I am happy to announce that Amazon AppStream is now being made available to all interested developers. You can build applications that run on AppStream and scale them as needed in order to meet demand.
Your client code runs on a desktop (Windows or Mac) or a mobile device running FireOS, Android, or iOS. The client code calls AppStream to obtain an Entitlement URL through an Entitlement Service (we supply a sample that you can use as-is, customize, or use as the basis for your own implementation). The client opens the Entitlement URL to initiate the streaming of video and audio content for playback. The client is also responsible for routing keyboard, mouse, and other device events to the application for processing.”
