Amazon has planned to launch European Appstore with the help of which developers can start submitting apps for many of the European Countries including Germany, France, Italy and Spain. Developers can visit Amazon Mobile App Distribution Portal. Moreover, developers around the world can submit from today. These apps will be internationally distributed later this year.
[hana-code-insert name=’StumbleUpon’ /][hana-code-insert name=’Reddit’ /]Amazon has already launched the Appstore in U.S. with a good level of success in just one year. 1-Click purchase and Test Drive – through which the users can test the app before purchase – have increased the confidence of developers. Furthermore, Amazon’s In-App service make it better for the developers to work and monetize their apps.
“With fan-favorite games like Plants vs. Zombies and SCRABBLE topping the charts, the U.S. Amazon Appstore has been a fantastic avenue for EA to reach an entirely new segment of consumers,” said Bernard Kim, Senior Vice President of Global Social & Mobile Publishing for EA. “Amazon’s international expansion marks an exciting opportunity to bring our interactive entertainment experiences to even more consumers around the world.”
“We are thrilled at the success our developers have experienced on the Amazon platform in the last year,” said Jim Adkins, Vice President of the Amazon Appstore. “Some developers have seen revenue double since the launch of In-App Purchasing. We’re excited to open the door to even more opportunity by expanding app sales outside the U.S. We see tremendous potential for current developers in our distribution program to grow with the international expansion. We also encourage new developers to join and participate in the platform’s growth.”
