Top rate placement within the Appstore in change for making nice Kindle Fireplace apps
In an try to have builders extra engaged in constructing apps namely for Hearth OS, Amazon has rolled out an incentive application it calls Appstore Developer Choose. This system, which is to be had now, rewards builders for constructing apps that are optimized for Kindle Fire devices, integrate with all of Amazon’s APIs — such as GameCircle and In-App Purchasing — and render natively on HD displays without distortion.
In return for making apps that run well on its Kindle Fire devices, Amazon will reward Developer Select members with new ways to highlight and feature their apps to customers. Developers will receive a “broad range of marketing and economic benefits,” such as premium placement in the Amazon Appstore and 500,000 ad impressions in the Mobile Ad Network. Customers will also receive Amazon Coin incentives for buying apps from these developers
Amazon says that the toughest part about seeing solid sales in its Appstore (or any app marketplace) is discoverability, and hopes that it can get more developers to follow these guidelines to get their apps noticed. The added benefit for Amazon is more apps that look like they belong on the Kindle Fire, and fewer that are basic ports with little or no thought behind them.
