About the Amazon Appstore

The Amazon Appstore allows developers to distribute and sell their Android and HTML5 web apps to millions of customers in 236 countries and territories. It is available on a multitude of devices, and is pre-loaded on Android phones on select carriers in the US and Europe. And now the Amazon Appstore has over 400,000 apps globally.

Amazon has tools and services that help you monetise your apps and keep users engaged. It’s easy to get started. You can test your app in under a minute and we’ve seen that most Android apps just work on Amazon devices, with no additional development required. Developers can get started in minutes from our developer portal.
