Amazon Appstore Now Available In India

Amazon launched its Android Appstore at the beginning of this year. Amazon’s Appstore was the first real alternative to Google’s own Android Market.


Amazon knew that attracting Android users to its own Appstore was a huge task. While, the Appstore may not have gained as much success as the company would have hoped for, its App of the Day section and lowered prices for some popular apps has definitely kept the traffic flowing.

One major factor limiting users to Amazon’s Appstore was it being available only to Android users in the U.S.

Now, it looks like Amazon has finally opened the gates of its Appstore to at least one country, India. While I have no news about the Appstore being available in other countries, I am pretty sure the Appstore is now available in more regions of the world.

Head over to this link to download the Amazon Appstore APK. Indian users should keep in mind that they would still need to enter their Credit Card details, even if they want to download a free app. So, majority of the Android users in India without any credit card are out of luck.
