Amazon only very recently started its own version of the app store and are taking the market by storm in terms of popularity.
Every day the company offers one paid app available as a free download and you can nab some quality stuff! Past freebies have included Angry Birds Rio, Doodle Jump and World Series of Poker. Not only is the daily savings proving popular with the public but its firmly integrated with the Amazon App Engine. You can search for apps with categories and sub-categories that anyone who has spent time shopping with Amazon will be familiar with. It is very easy to scan for specific types of games like golfing and racing priced at specific dollar amounts. You can even search for new content submitted in the last 30 or 90 days to find things that are really fresh.
Some of the drawbacks of the Amazon App Store is the fact that the web version sucks. You can search for loose terms such as Opera or Internet Explorer and get links to all sorts of books and music CD’s. If you purchase games or applications from the web you will be sent an Amazon download link via Email. You will want to use the App version because it was designed specifically for mobile downloads and is easier to find the direct content.
Finally the Amazon App Store is designed very well, it is easy to find what you want and growing fast. With a huge company backing a Google Android Alternative Market is should exponentially grow. There are also rumors swirling of a possible Amazon Tablet with built in support for the store, video and cloud service.
