Amazon Appstore for Android reaches 50,000 apps
posted by Victor H. / Sep 06, 2012, 12:35 PM
And now, it has grown to 50,000 applications. This might not seem like a huge number and it is not indeed, but thinking of the Amazon Appstore as a complement to the existing Google Play and its over 600,000 apps it definitely doesn’t look bad.
The Amazon Appstore went over 30,000 titles in its catalog half a year ago, and this is definitely not bad growth in the year and a half that’s passed since it launched in March 2011.
Of those 50,000 releases, there are more than 31,000 titles compatible with the current Kindle Fire. We guess all of those will be also working with the upcoming second-gen Fire, and it’s getting unveiled in minutes - stay tuned to our live blog for the latest.

I only buy my Apps' from the Play Store because, the fact that Apple dropped its' lawsuit against Amazon can only mean that Apple and Amazon have some sort. of monetary agreement; I refuse to let Apple profit from my purchases. I also don't want Amazon to take over my legitimate Play Store Apps', like it did when I installed Angry Birds Seasons not too long after they launched their store. Had to do a factory reset. just to clear everything up' because my Play Store (Market back then) apps' disappeared from "My Apps'".

I never said PAPINYC was wrong. Microsoft does get a cut from Google. I just said kindlefireowner was right. Also, I never said Apple gets a share from Google. I said they get it from some of the Android maunfacturers. Try reading carefully before you try to refute someone next time.
