Amazon AppStore updates to v1.14 with fixes and New two step purchase method

Early this morning I got an update for the Amazon AppStore on my device and it seems they've added a few updates worth noting. Mainly some bug fixes and things of that sort, but they have also implemented a new two-step purchase method where you must click twice. This should avoid accidental purchases for those unlucky enough to have done it by mistake. We didn't hear anything regarding this til now, but it was a nice surprise.

All that changed, it seems, when the Infuse 4G was released into the wild less than a month ago. It's been confirmed here by a mail that's being sent out to AT&T developers saying that this change will be standard through the future.
