Amazon Appstore Raises Download Limit, Fixes Notifications


Amazon released version 2.2.0 of its Appstore for Android back near the beginning of the month, introducing some new options for controlling notifications and improving the app’s compatibility checks. Since then, we’ve seen Amazon celebrate the Appstore’s first birthday, and now today a new version of the virtual marketplace arrives, again making some changes to notifications, as well as ushering-in a few other improvements.

Amazon’s Appstore moves on up to 2.3.0, now revisiting the app’s notification system. Apparently the company introduced a few bugs when adding that new functionality last time around, and this release makes several adjustments in the hopes of getting the feature to behave correctly.

The other major component of this update has to do with how large apps can be when you’re not on a WiFi connection. In the past, if you’ve tried accessing the store using cellular data, it enforced a 20MB limit on downloads. As of today’s update, that cut-off rises to 50MB. As a result, users on tiered data plans should make sure they pay extra attention to just how much data the app is consuming.

Wrapping things up, we’ve got the usual assortment of minor fixes and tweaks. You can find links to help you install Amazon Appstore for Android 2.3.0 through the source link below.
