    Today may very clearly be Apple's day in the sun, but even as we prepare for the its latest announcements just a few hours from now, there's another A-company catching our attention on the mobile front, with Amazon pushing a pretty sizable update to its Android app. Amazon had already been on our radar this week due to the much-appreciated Fire Phone price cuts we just saw go live, but this time it's Amazon Prime that's our focus, and specifically Amazon Prime Instant Video. Thanks to the latest update to the Amazon Android app, Prime subscribers in the US will now be able to watch free ...

    Just a couple days from now, on June 18, Amazon has an event that will in all likelihood reveal the company's first smartphone, following the success of its Kindle Fire tablets. The question on everyone's mind is whether or not Amazon will be able to recapture that same kind of magic when it comes to smartphones; will little hiccups like Amazon's use of its own app store, as opposed to Google's massive Play Store, make more of a difference when we're talking about a user's primary device, rather than one used alongside their smartphone? We're probably not too far away from finding out, but ...

    Free-to-download apps are good, but you know what's even better? Free credit to be used towards any premium app purchase you want. It may take a little bit of doing, but we've just learned of a way to combine a couple offers Amazon has running right now to not just end up with ten free apps, but with over $20 in credit left over to be spent on the apps of your choice. Here's how it works: Amazon's got a one-day promo where it's making available nine photography apps for free. OK, but Amazon has free app offers all the time; what's the big deal? The key here is that for each one of those ...

    Motorola's selling the Moto X cheap for Mother's Day, and in just a few weeks we're sure we'll see oodles of Memorial Day smartphone sales, but these aren't the only holidays companies are taking advantage of to help promote their wares. This coming Sunday is May 4, and while that might not immediately mean anything to a lot of you, to sci-fi fans May the fourth has entrenched itself in their culture as Star Wars Day (may the fourth be with you). Amazingly, someone has noticed the overlap between sci-fi enthusiasts and the tech community, and today we learn about a couple ...

    Are you a big Amazon Appstore user? The Play Store alternative arrived as a bold challenge to Google's Android dominance, and while it still sees its fair share of users (thanks in no small part to Amazon's own Kindle Fire tablets) it hasn't really risen to the point where it's a threat to Google's position. Still, Amazon would love to see more of you checking out what its storefront has to offer, and in light of the holiday season, it's handing out a free $5 credit for you to spend towards the app of your choice. So what's the catch? OK, fair enough: you need to be in the US (or at least ...

    If you are living in the U.S. and have an Android phone chances are you are checking the Amazon Appstore in parallel with the Google Play Store. If so, you will probably notice that there's an update waiting to be applied for the application (and if not, you can always hit the source link below from your phone to grab the app). It brings the "Test Drive" feature to your phone, if you have one of the "select" devices (more will be added soon). What is Test Drive? If you're on the Amazon Appstore, or more specifically, on a product page, you can hit the "Test Drive” button and use your ...
