The Amazon Android AppStore gets updated

Even though for most Android users the Google’s Play Store is the go-to place for downloading new apps, the Amazon Appstore has its share of steady followers too. There may be many reasons for this, but among the most important ones (besides owning a Kindle Fire), is its daily paid-app-for-free promo.

Anyway, if you are already using it, you’d be happy to know that Amazon has just updated their app, fixing a bug under Android 4.2 and bringing a handful of other noteworthy changes.

The complete changelog for the updated store is as follows:

  • Fix for Android 4.2 log-out issue
  • User interface updated
  • Fix for a battery drain bug
  • You can now remove apps from My Apps with a long press
  • Misc bugfixes and stability improvements

If you haven’t received the push notification about the update yet, go to Settings>Version and Release Notes and try pressing Check for update.

If you still haven’t tried the Amazon AppStore and you are a resident of one of the supported countries (the US, France, Germany, Italy, France, Spain and the UK for all I know), you can download the store’s install file by visiting from your Android device.
