Amazon Makes HTML5 Mobile Web Applications For Android Available On Its Appstore
08 Aug. 2013 Enterprise Tech News
The Amazon Mobile App Distribution program announced on Wednesday morning that developers will now be able to publish their app on Amazon’s Appstore.
Amazon has taken a step towards making mobile apps created by developers for Kindle Fire tablet and certain select Android devices available on its Appstore. This means that developers will no longer be required to build native Android apps for the Kindle Fire and then implement HTML5 for distributing them over Amazon’s app store.
Those who submit their web apps on Amazon’s Appstore will now be able to promote their web app to the company’s millions of customers. By selling digital content or subscriptions, developers will also be able to generate revenue from the app. The apps will use the company’s digital currency, Amazon coins, for allowing customers to purchase their app and in-app items.
Developers who want to start building HTML5 apps for the Amazon Appstore can do so by downloading the software developer kit. They will then be able to test their developed app through Amazon’s developer site.
It seems, that this announcement by Amazon may prove to be a great opportunity for developers across the globe.
