Android App Downloads pass 3 Billion

In it's first quarter 2011 earnings call, Google let it be known that over three billion apps have been downloaded from the Android Market since it opened. The tally reflects a 50% increase in Android app downloads since the last quarter of 2010.

But even with that possibility, it's still an impressive tall.

Amazon clears the air on their AppStore Developer Agreement

There seems to have been a bit of confusion over details in the Amazon AppStore Developer Agreement.

Complete with Arcade style design, Pew Pew 2 offers a great retro look with seven different game modes, all in one mobile package.

They've gave away exclusive games like Angry Birds Rio, Angry Birds Seasons, and more away for free. I like it.

Amazon Appstore offers app test drives on your computer

Amazon launched its Appstore not too long ago and Apple might not be happy about it, but I think most Android fans are very excited about the new store. Amazon has a really cool feature that it offers to let you play some of the games on the Appstore before you bother downloading them or paying for them.
