The Amazon Appstore is now preloaded on BlackBerry 10.3 devices starting with BlackBerry Passport. Starting today, hundreds of thousands of apps and games will now be available to Blackberry customers through the Amazon Appstore.
A FREE high-quality paid app is also available through the Free App of the Day program, which gives customers one free paid app each day. At Amazon, we are always committed to making it easy for our customers to easily find the apps and products they want and ensure they’re satisfied with their overall customer experience. Now we’re excited to extend that same commitment to the BlackBerry community. BlackBerry customers will have the opportunity to discover apps that are relevant to them based on personalized recommendations and download these apps with confidence using Amazon’s trusted payment options.
On the developer side, we’re focused on creating the best platform for developers to build, monetize and distribute their apps. Our developer ecosystem starts with the Amazon Web Services platform for developers’ infrastructure needs. We’ve got programs like Appstore Developer Select that provide advertising and merchandising benefits to developers so they can get their app discovered. And with services like In-App Purchasing, Mobile Associates, Mobile Ads and our virtual currency Amazon Coins, developers can find all new ways to make more money. Click here to learn more.
Getting Your App on BlackBerry Devices
Publishing your app on BlackBerry devices via the Amazon Appstore is easy. If you’re an existing Amazon Appstore developer, you’ve previously chosen to distribute your app or game on “Non-Amazon Devices” and your app is compatible with BlackBerry Passport, you don’t have to do anything - your app is already available on BlackBerry Passport devices.
