    There were some major changes today to the Amazon Appstore App. Starting this morning, Amazon has enabled international users to take part in the Appstore for Android. They have also given the entire app a new user interface.

    Another key addition in the update is ability to finally remove apps from the “My Apps” list by long pressing them.

    What I would like them to remove and I have kept sending them emails about is that annoying pop up notification that lets you know there are new apps to install and updates.

    Angry Birds (the original) was free today. Probably, one of the more "higher" end free app of the day deals in a long time. With the exception of Space I got all of the Angry Birds there. Ad free.

    What I would love more than anything is for them to actually include release notes with app updates! It is bad enough that the Amazon appstore is so far behind the Play store when it comes to updates, then once they are available they don't say what has changed. Actually there are plenty of things I don't like about the Amazon appstore but those are the ones that really drive me nuts.
