It looks like that rumor from yesterday turned out to be true. The Amazon App Store for Android went live this morning. It has some pretty nifty features. Here are just a few:
- Filter apps by featured categories
- Each listing has multiple screenshots and as a fully formatted description
- Amazon reviews - just like from their website
- Some apps have a full preview mode that Amazon calls 'Test Drive' that allows you to try them out in your browser window
Also, Amazon is running a pretty amazing promotion. Amazon is going to feature a FREE premium app, every day for an undefined period of time! The free premium app for today is none other than their brand new exclusive "Angry Birds Rio". Check it out to grab Angry Birds Rio before the day is gone, and let us know what you think of the Amazon App Store in the forums.
