Amazon may soon offer customers unlimited access to paid apps and games as part of a new “Unlocked” service. That is, of course, provided a recent TechCrunch report proves accurate. According to their sources, it would be not unlike an “Amazon Prime for Apps”.
Introducing Amazon Unlocked for Apps & Games,” the company notes in one promotional spot. “Paid apps and in-app purchasing now completely FREE from Amazon.
Allegedly, the Amazon Unlocked would essentially provide for a way for highlighting content that typically comes with a price tag or includes in-app purchases. From the sounds of it, Amazon will shave the prices down on content for limited time periods and developers may be able to opt in/out.
It is not clear as to how soon Amazon Unlocked might roll out or whether it will be offered separately from any other services. Presumably, Unlocked is just one more “wow” factor in the Amazon experience and comes free of charge. On the other hand, we’d not be surprised if there were a standalone fee that gets you in the door. Would you be willing to pay a few bucks each month for an all-access pass to Unlocked content?
