Amazon has given more details of how Android apps will be sold in its new online app store. Its blog post outlines how apps will benefit from the same automated marketing as other products on Amazon, including ‘More Items to Consider’, ‘New for You’, ‘Related to Items You’ve Viewed’ and others. Amazon will also be separating out charts for free and paid apps in its store, to help people find the most popular apps. Google’s own Android Market has regularly been criticised for not doing a good job on app discoverability, although it has improved in the last 12 months. Amazon’s launch of its own store has thus been welcomed by app developers – and could be good for music apps, thanks to recommendations related to people buying digital and physical music on the site.
