Amazon to end Appstore TestDrive Service effective April 15

Amazon AppStore started offering app test drives on computer four years ago. Android users were delighted to try it because they could test new apps using a virtual Android phone. Only 30 minutes of playtime is given per game but that's good enough to see what new apps are coming and what is worthy to be downloaded. About 20 apps were first added to the test drive program in March 2011 but the number since increased.

Amazon Appstore to offer paid apps for free

While most Android users still get their apps from the Google Play Store, online retail giant Amazon is still trying to make their mark through their own Android-based appstore. They know the only way to attract users to them is by borrowing a little something from how Amazon has lured consumers to their site: through discounts, freebies, and sometimes, even more "disruptive storefront promotions". It looks like they'll be continuing with this strategy as they're preparing to launch an "Unlocked" section in the appstore.

Amazon is perhaps a one-stop shopping site. You can buy almost anything you need on the e-commerce site. Even digital goods, you can find them on the Amazon Appstore.

Be the King of Thieves in Zeptolab’s latest on Amazon Appstore [UPDATE]

Zeptolab, developer of the very popular and addicting Cut the Rope game, has just released a new game on the Amazon Appstore. King of Thieves is a new game that allows the (un)hero to steal gold, gems, and other shiny things from other players to win the game and become the richest thief. Don't take this game seriously though because the "stealing" and "looting" are all just for fun. It will teach you how to defend your loot and watch out for other thieves getting into the dungeons and traps you designed yourself.

BlackBerry partners with Amazon for Android apps

Amazon app axed from Play Store, returns as shopping-only app

If you praised the Amazon overlords for pooling almost all their retail offers, both physical and digital, into a single Android app, you might start hurling profanities at this latest development. Though you might be hurling them at the wrong people. Amazon's revamped Appstore was apparently removed from Google Play Store because Google subtly changed one of its criteria for allowing apps on Google Play Store. Now the Amazon app has returned, sans the ability to buy apps and games.

Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath arrives on Amazon Appstore [UPDATE]

The Oddworld franchise is a gamer’s treasure chest, and sadly, only people who have played the games can attest to that statement. Oddworld has never been a game that sold lots and lots of copies, but when it comes to uniqueness, the game truly delivers -- each game is different from the one before it, and each new game brings innovation to setting, story, aesthetics, and gameplay.
