Amazon Coins Now Available on Android Devices in US, UK and Germany
      #46061 - 02/19/14 04:02 PM

Amazon today announced that customers in the US, UK and Germany can now buy, spend and earn Amazon Coins on their Android phones and tablets. Previously available for use exclusively on Kindle Fire tablets, Amazon Coins can now be used to buy the latest apps directly from their Android device. Customers simply need to download the latest version of the Amazon Appstore and their existing Coins balances automatically appear. Here's more info:

Customers will find that earning extra Amazon Coins is easy and fun, whether it's by downloading specific apps or by reaching achievements within certain games. The full selection of apps where customers can earn Coins is available by visiting www.amazon.com/earncoins

Amazon Appstore developers will continue to earn their standard 70% revenue share when customers make purchases using Amazon Coins. Expanding Amazon Coins across Android devices is the latest offering in an array of services that make Amazon the most complete end-to-end ecosystem for developers building, monetizing and marketing their apps and games. These capabilities include:

-The ability for app developers to use Amazon Web Services' (AWS) technology platform for their infrastructure needs. Building blocks such as Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), and Amazon DynamoDB allow developers to focus on what differentiates their app rather than the undifferentiated heavy lifting of infrastructure.

-In-App Purchasing on Kindle Fire, Android, Mac, PC and web-based games. This enables developers to offer their digital items in apps and games while allowing end users to simply use their Amazon accounts to make the purchase.
Mobile Associates API for Kindle Fire and other Android devices. This enables developers to merchandise millions of physical and digital items from Amazon.com within their apps and games.

-Mobile Ads which helps developers monetize their apps by displaying high quality, relevant display ads from brand advertisers, including Amazon.

-HTML5/Web App Resources enables developers to distribute and sell web apps on Kindle Fire and select Android devices in nearly 200 countries across the globe.

-Appstore Developer Select improves app discovery through a broad range of marketing and economic benefits, which in turn, increases sales for developers. Benefits include enhanced merchandising in the Amazon Appstore, 500,000 mobile ad impressions, and discounts on Amazon Web Services.

-GameCircle which includes capabilities like Achievements, Leaderboards, Friends and Whispersync for syncing games across iOS and Android, including Kindle Fire, and leads to better engagement with games.

Existing Android customers can upgrade to the latest version of the Amazon Appstore on their mobile device by visiting www.amazon.com/updateappstore and new customers can download the Amazon Appstore on their mobile device by visiting www.amazon.com/getappstore
