Earlier today the Amazon App Store For Android opened its virtual doors (as we predicted), now we are wondering whether this will be the start of a revolution and perhaps replace the Android Market as the number one place to buy your apps for your Android device.
Having Angry Birds Rio as an exclusive is not the only thing in the new App Store’s favor, people will trust Amazon thanks to the years of great service they have served as an online retailer, also the store features a simple payment system and let’s you try before you buy.
The Android Market is good, however a lot of people think that it is not governed strictly enough, this has resulted in lots of low-quality apps finding their way onto the market. which has in-turn resulted in it becoming hard to find good apps. Could the Amazon App Store be a possible Android Market replacement?
We don’t see the Amazon App Store as being an Android Market replacement just yet, however if Amazon make purchasing great apps a hassle-free experience and continue to deliver the quality service we are used to seeing Google may have to have a think about the direction their Android Market is heading.
Do you think Amazon’s App Store will become a true replacement to the Android Market?
