When it comes to 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.
