Amazon has added support for around 195 countries worldwide by releasing an update for its Appstore for Android. So, now there’s one more place to get genuine Android applications.
Amazon Appstore is used frequently in those countries where Google does not officially provide paid applications, but from now onwards by Amazon Appstore you can download paid applications in these countries also (currently available in 137 countries).
You can find discounts on paid applications on Amazon Appstore as compared to the Google Playstore where prices of apps remain same as always without any discounts and offers. You can also grab one paid app for free every day under ‘Today’s free app of the day’ promo on Amazon Appstore.
So, get ready to install Amazon Appstore on your Android devices. The following steps will help you to download these apps:
1. First, allow installation of applications from unknown sources.
On ICS/ JB running devices –
Go to Settings >> Security >> Unknown Sources >> check it.
On Gingerbread devices –
Go to Settings >> Applications >> Unknown sources >> check it.
Tap OK, if your phone asks for confirmation. ‘Unknown sources’ is already checked, you can skip this step.
2. Download Amazon Appstore for Android APK from this link.
3. Tap on downloaded APK file in your notification shade or downloads
4. Tap Install
5. Click OK
6. Amazon Appstore might give some warning or notification the first time you try to install an app, click OK and it will refresh to open your country-specific version and then it will start working.
So, try it out, hopefully you can download all your favorite apps even if it a paid app on discounted rates.
