Amazon’s Android App Store Welcomes Developers

Jan 5, 2011

Back in September the Android blogs were buzzing with the rumors of Amazon’s plan to launch its own Android Marketplace and up until now things have been kind of quiet.

Today Amazon announced the launch of its developer portal for the ensuing Amazon app store. The developer portal is open to any developer willing to sell his soul and can be accessed via http://developer.amazon.com. Amazon is even willing to waive its $99 annual developer program fee for anyone who joins the program now. I’m still up in the air about whether or not this program is worth the trouble for developers but I’ll just pass on some info and leave you to your own judgments.
