Amazon’s Appstore has additional benefits over Google Play as users have access to popular features like the “Free App of the Day,” which offers a paid app for free every day. Other features include personalized recommendations, customer reviews and 1-Click payments, plus it provides the ability to test drive apps and games before buying to make sure they function and perform properly on your device.
Apps and games purchased from Amazon can be used across any compatible Android device, enabling customers to buy an app or game once and enjoy it everywhere. For a limited time, consumers will also find great promotions and discounts on popular games from leading brands such as Ubisoft, Sega and Rovio, including Angry Birds Space for free through June 3.
To get started, download (APK) and install Amazon Appstore on your Android device. You then need to login using your Amazon.com account to begin downloading apps. Customers can also visit amazon.com/appstore to start browsing apps and download them from web interface, which will auto-download on your Android phone after your confirmation. Users can buy paid apps using existing gift card balance in their Amazon account and in-app purchasing is possible too, which one can disable from settings.
Note: Make sure to enable the ‘Unknown Sources’ option in Settings > Security, since Amazon will install apps from outside the Play store.
