UK Users Can Now Access Amazon Appstore from the Web

Amazon's Android App Store quietly launched in the United Kingdom in September of last year, more than a year after the store first launched in the United States. Unfortunately, users could only access the Amazon Appstore via their device. Online browsing was not supported. Until now, that is.


Pocket-Lint reports that Amazon this week made its Appstore available to UK users via its website. That means no more browsing and shopping on your Kindle or Android phone if you don't want to. You can browse while at your computer, buy apps, and have them downloaded to your Android or Kindle at a later stage. The news comes as Amazon expands Amazon Appstore availability to an additional 200 countries.

The Amazon Appstore is unique in that it offers many paid Android apps for less and even some exclusive apps that are not available through the Android marketplace. The company also offers a normally paid app for free every day.
