    There are some quality apps in there.

    One important thing to note for some is that you're no longer required to have the standalone app for the Amazon App Store installed on your device in order to use these. Amazon has added support for their app store through their general Amazon shopping app that's available through Google Play. As long as you have that app installed, you'll be good to go.

    I'll skip them all. The reason is that I've used the Amazon AppStore in the past and noticed that apps were very late for updates compared to the Play Store. Some apps lost update support all together. Either the dev decided to stop using the Amazon store or something but it was useless to me. Then I'd get update notifications from the Plat Store about the apps from Amazon, try to update and then ask me to buy them. Amazon's App Store would take over for free apps because it would run the updates, uninstall the Google version of the app and put its own version on. I won't use Amazon's App Store again.

    How long ago was that? I haven't had issues with either app store trying to treasure over updates for apps downloaded with the other one in a long time.

    Grabbed a few myself. Might never use them but I like the gratification of getting something for free. Especially some of the more pricey apps.

    Fair enough. I only keep it around because I bought a few indispensable apps through it & haven't been able to bring myself to buy them again through Google.
