Amazon Appstore for Android Test Drive hands on: surprisingly cool, but still US-only

When Amazon Appstore for Android launched last week, one of its primary features -- Test Drive -- was disabled just a few minutes after it opened. With no try-before-you-buy, no refund process, and 1-Click purchasing ready to strike at any moment, this caused some problems. Anyway, don't despair: Test Drive is now enabled.

The Android Market is still missing a few key pieces of functionality. Among them is in-app payments -- which Google has now announced will begin rolling out next week.

Amazon Appstore for Android hands-on review: Android Market is in trouble

Earlier today Amazon released its long-awaited Appstore for Android. Fundamentally it's very similar to Google's first-party Android Market or the third-party AppBrain, but it has a few Amazonian differences that could set it apart from the competition very quickly.

Accessible in both the browser via Amazon.com/appstore, or on-device via a downloadable app, the Amazon Appstore hopes to bring a better store experience to the Android platform, and beat the Android Market at its own game.

A cunning fellow over on Androidnews.de decided to add /apps to amazon.com and was rewarded with a list of 48 Android apps and their pricing!

Angry Birds Rio for Android to be an Amazon Appstore exclusive

If you're an Angry Birds fan and own and Android device, here's some news you'll want to file away for safe keeping. The upcoming sequel Angry Birds Rio won't be available from the Android Market. Rather, you'll have to download it from the Amazon Appstore. That's a pretty major win for Amazon, considering how successful the Angry Birds franchise has been. If you're looking for a sure-fire w...
