Amazon Appstore heading to iOS?
The Amazon Appstore will be going cross platform, but does this mean Amazon on the iPad and iPhone ?
A spokesperson has confirmed the Amazon App Store will be extending to other platforms - could that mean iOS?
Aaron Rubenson, in charge of the Appstore project, told Mobile-Device.biz the store would be available on other platforms in future.
"Our goal is to provide a vast selection to customers from multiple operating systems. Although the store will feature Android apps at launch, we will evaluate opportunities to expand our selection on an ongoing basis," he said.
Whether Apple would allow Amazon to sell applications to its customers is another matter. The company is notoriously strict when it comes to other people selling its apps and cutting into that revenue stream.
The Amazon Appstore is a marketplace for Android applications. It's similar to Android Market, although makes the process of findong apps easier, using Amazon's familiar store interface.
Just like the full shopping site, you'll be able to buy apps recommended to you and will get suggestions based on what other people with similar tastes bought.
Amazon Appstore hasn't yet launched and there's no official release date for the UK, although it is pencilled in for this year.
