Amazon launched their Appstore back in March of 2011 and shortly after, Apple came forward with claims of false advertising. According to Apple, people could end up being confused between the Amazon Appstore and their App Store. And well, previous history aside, it looks like Amazon has taken a small victory in this case.

Amazon's Appstore is posting massive growth this year. A large reason for this large success is due to the popularity of the its Kindle Fire line of tablets, which do not have access to Google Play, so the Amazon Appstore is their only option. Amazon also has great developer features that are helping to spur the large growth.
Android apps, there aren't many companies that give the Google Play Store a run for it's money, but Amazon sure is trying. The Amazon Appstore comes pre-installed on a lot of the phones we review here at Android Community, and it's the only app store Amazon allows on its line of Kindle Fire devices, despite the fact that they're all based on Android. Today, Amazon announced that Appstore downloads have grown by 500% in the past year, which is an absurdly huge number.
we reported that Amazon's AppStore was now available in Japan, but before being pushed to other regions they also issued a quick software update fixing a few bugs and improving the user interface. This week Amazon updated their 3rd party Android Appstore to terminate a few bugs, as well as solve the Android 4.2 multi-user login problem.
Amazon started accepting submissions for their upcoming 3rd party Android Appstore in Japan, and now things are ready to rock. Today Amazon has announced the Appstore has gone live in Japan. The new store will give Japanese Android users a change at even more apps for their Kindle devices, as well as all Android smartphones and tablets.
Lots of apps. In addition to announcing major partnerships with Netflix and a myriad of app developers, Amazon has updated the generic Appstore program, giving the user interface some spit and polish before the Fire's release later this month. You can download the new version now.
Amazon Appstore would find their way onto the Kindle Fire (albeit with varying degrees of compatibility) but just in case you were wondering, Amazon's here to set the record straight. The company announced that major titles like Facebook, Netflix, Pandora, and games from developers like EA, Zynga and Rovio would land on the Kindle Fire when it releases next Tuesday. Appstore mainstays like the free paid app of the day will remain, and apps purchased on the Kindle Fire can be downloaded via the Appstore on any Android device.
and today, it's OfficeSuite Pro 5, normally a full $15. OfficeSuite Pro 5 is your standard document editor, featuring support for Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and PDF files, though the last two are read-only, according to the app's Amazon listing. An integrated file browser and Google Docs connection help round out the software, and happily, it handles the tricky .docx, .xlsx and ppsx extensions without complaining. You can get OfficeSuite for free until 3 AM Eastern Time, and considering how many of you have already pre-ordered the Amazon Kindle Fire, you may want to do so whether or not you intend to use it on your current smartphone or tablet. If you're new to the Amazon Appstore, don't worry - downloading and installing it is a simple process. Just head on over to the Get Started page and enter your email address. Download the app to your phone or tablet, then install it via the standard non-Market method (you'll need to allow the "unknown sources" option in the Application settings menu). Once a free app is "purchased," it's connected to your Amazon account, and you can download it on any device with the Appstore installed.
Cut The Rope hit the Android market ad-free and users everywhere rejoiced.
