Amazon is shuttering Underground

Amazon is shuttering Underground

Apr 29, 2017

Amazon Underground, an interesting concept that had Amazon offering apps for free — as in “completely free” (no purchase or IAP costs) — will be sunsetting support 2019.

The underlying idea was indeed innovative, especially with regards to app environments, when it launched in 2015, Amazon essentially provided the apps for free, and developers were compensated based on how much time users spent in the app.

After May 2017, no more apps will be accepted. We look forward to seeing if the Amazon Appstore will return to its pre-Underground form.
