Amazon Renews Call for Android Developers

Just weeks before their much-anticipated Android-based tablet, Amazon has renewed their call for developers.  To sweeten the pot a bit, the online retail behemoth is giving a one-time $50 promo code, good for use on specific Amazon Web Service.  AWS offers Android developers a number of helpful tools in the form of data storage, mobile-to-mobile communication, and flexible database options.

From September 7, 2011 through November 15, 2011, developers who submit an Android app to the Amazon Appstore are eligible to receive a one-time $50 promotion code for use on certain AWS services (subject to terms and conditions).  Promotion codes will be emailed directly to developers during the first week of October and the last week of November. – Amazon

If you’re an Android developer looking for an uptick in attention or focus, you’d be wise to consider the Amazon Appstore.  If the tablets do half as good as they are expected to, these things will be flying of shelves.  Wouldn’t you want to be one of the apps or games that these millions of eyeballs are looking through?

    Ever since I found out that anything I downloaded or purchased through the Amazon App Store would cease to function after I deleted the Amazon App Store app, I stopped using the service and deleted the app. What they’re doing has to be illegal. And if it’s not, it should be.
