Aside from the color shift from black on white to white on gray gradients, or what Amazon self-describes as a “new slick design with larger fonts and darker colors”, the release notes list several additions such as:
- Support for in-app purchases including one time purchases, subscriptions and parental controls that force a pin or password for in-app purchases
- Review permissions on details page prior to making a purchase
- Faster download times and shorter load times
- Other bug fixes
Many of these features finally bring the Amazon Appstore up to speed with Google’s Android Market. One welcomed addition to the Amazon Appstore, that puts it ahead of the Android Market, is support for subscriptions. If you’re a current Amazon Appstore user, you may be disappointed to see that there is still no way to uninstall apps or remove items from ‘My Apps’ within the Appstore.
