Fire OS 5 also makes it easy for customers to discover your content. The home screen includes dedicated content pages for books, games and apps, video, music, audiobooks, and periodicals—each page presents an engaging layout akin to the beautiful pages of a magazine, making apps and games the center of the tablet experience.
Within the Amazon Appstore experience, we have replaced the static menu of apps with a dynamic list of content that is personalized for each individual customer.
Fire tablets come preloaded with Amazon Underground. Amazon Underground is a one-of-a-kind app store experience where thousands of premium apps, games, and even in-app items are 100% free—including extra lives, unlocked levels, unlimited add-on packs, and more. With Amazon Underground you get paid for every minute a customer uses your app or game, so you can turn 100% of your Android users into revenue generating customers. Now you as developers can focus less on monetizing and more on creating great user experiences. Check out the results that developers like Coffee Stains Studios, Kerad Games, and Loud Crow Interactive have seen with Amazon Underground.
