Amazon Appstore now offering paid apps in China, Google's Play Store is yet to do so3
China has one of the highest levels of app piracy and malware, but is this due to the nature of the market or the fact that those guys didn't have where to get their apps from? We guess we'll never know, but we do hope that Amazon's new offering will help bring those levels down. Interestingly, Amazon has said that it'll be working with local developers in order to add more apps to its Appstore, which is currently sporting a much smaller catalog than that of the Play Store. With the Amazon Appstore being the sole brand-name service offering paid apps at the moment, though, we can see a good number of Chinese developers jumping on a the bandwagon. Once again, Jeff Bezos has made an extraordinarily smart move.
