Amazon's Android App Store

Amazon Opens Its Android App Store to Developers

Turns out, the rumors that Amazon would be developing its own app store for Android are true. The company just announced its new Appstore Developer Program, which will allow developers to create and submit Android apps to an Amazon-curated app store.

Because the Android Market, unlike Apple's App Store, is largely unregulated with no approval process, Amazon is hoping to create a curated store for high-quality apps, but good news for developers: you can submit apps to both the Android Market and Amazon.

Find out more, including how much the developers make per sale after the jump.

Availability on Amazon will come at a price though; developers will have to go through a similar submission process as they do for iOS apps, and Amazon will set the price of each app it sells with developers taking about 70 percent of the profits of their app — the same as iOS developers take home. This could mean that Amazon may change prices on apps based on popularity and trends. But, developers will benefit from Amazon's trusted name and wide reach.

Also similar to Apple's store, adult or obscene material won't be allowed at all, and Amazon will test all submitted apps to ensure they work as advertised.
