We are pleased to announce that you can now distribute your games and apps to Amazon customers in Japan. Check out the press release here.
Thanks to our community of app developers, Amazon's mobile app distribution continues to expand internationally. Together, we are making it easy for consumers to shop, discover and buy new content on their Android device, Kindle Fire or Kindle Fire HD through personalized recommendations, customer reviews and differentiating programs like Free App of the Day.
Amazon’s developers have reported strong monetization from the apps they've distributed, thanks to the In-App Purchasing API and Amazon’s 1-Click purchasing. And we encourage you to customize your apps for different countries to ensure customers have the best experience possible. You can learn more about Android localization tips and resources and steps for localizing your app in the Distribution Portal in previous posts here on the blog, or learn more about developing for Kindle Fire from Kindle Fire Development Resources. Plus, check out tips from Gamevil on localizing for Japan.
