Amazon Updates Appstore in Anticipation of Kindle Fire Arrival
Amazon’s first Android tablet, the Kindle Fire, is set to finally come out next week. In advance of its arrival, Amazon is pushing-out an update for its Appstore, bringing the app up to version 2.0 and getting a makeover to fit with the new Fire aesthetic.
Besides the attractive new charcoal UI, the Appstore gains some new functionality. It now supports in-app purchases, which should be great news for developers who’ve chosen to sell though Amazon, as well as offers the ability for parents to set restrictions on how their children can make purchases in the Appstore. You can now check out a list of all the permissions an app will request, before you even download it, and the entire experience should feel faster, with everything from downloads to page transition times sped-up.
The new Amazon Appstore is available now; either upgrade your existing installation, or if you’re new to Amazon’s market, you can get your copy here. The Kindle Fire tablet arrives next Tuesday, November 15.
