Look like Amazon want to extend their global reach app distribution business. The company has announced that it would be expanding it's Android-based appstore to 200 countries, including Australia, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, India, South Africa, South Korea, and even Papua New Guinea and Vatican City.
Developers will be able to submit their apps for distribution, from today onwards, said Amazon in a press release. The app store will be launched globally in the coming months. Previously, the app was only available in UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain and Japan. Developers can submit their apps from here.
"Amazon's platform is a complete end-to-end solution for developers wanting to build, market and monetize their apps and games on Kindle Fire and Android devices," said Mike George, Vice President of Apps and Games at Amazon.
"Allowing developers to target distribution of their apps and games in even more international countries is yet another important milestone as we strive to serve consumers and developers globally. Many of our existing developers have localized their apps and games for international consumers, and we look forward to working with new developers that have been waiting to bring their apps to more Amazon customers across the globe." He added.
Amazon Appstore is a app that runs on Android devices and lets you download various apps. The app was launched in March 22, 2011 with around 3,800 applications, both free or paid, in UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain and Japan.
