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.

Now the Amazon app has returned, sans the ability to buy apps and games.

It’s never too early to celebrate the holidays. Before Christmas, we have Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday so this means more great shopping deals from Amazon.
