The Amazon App store has been available in the US for quite sometime now and we recently heard that the retail giant plans to launch its App Store for their European Customers. Since then Amazon has announced that they will be launching the App Store in Europe this summer.
Amazon’s App Store will launch in the UK, Germany, Italy, France and Spain initially, plus they also noted that they are planning to expand the store to more countries at a later date. They didn’t give a specific date for the launch the App Store in Europe, all they said was it should be expected “This Summer”.
“We’ve seen that Amazon gamers are hungry for great content and are willing to open up their digital wallets to pay for it,” said Niccolo de Masi, CEO and President of Glu Mobile. “Our latest title launched on Amazon, Frontline Commando, has seen both revenue per daily active user and lifetime value metrics exceed averages as compared to other devices and platforms.
Developers are now able to submit apps for approval to the European Amazon App Store which proves that they are right on schedule for a summer launch date.
