Amazon to expand its app store in 200 countries

Amazon while continuing its global expansion has announced on Wednesday that it is expanding its Android based app store to around 200 countries like India, Australia, Canada, South Africa, South Korea, few Latin American countries and even Papua New Guinea and Vatican City.

Developers who want to distribute their apps to these new recently added international markets can now submit their apps but will be accessible to the customers once Amazon launches its App store for Android in the next few months. New developers can sign up by visiting Amazon’s official Mobile App portal.

According to Mike George, VP apps and games at Amazon, the company has placed itself as an end-to-end solution for developers to help them build, market and monetize their apps and games on kindle Fire and Android devices. With this move, they will have their reach to international consumers and more advanced technology. The Amazon Appstore works for the Google Android operating system and was launched on March 22, 2011.
