Amazon has announced that it will expand its Android-based Appstore and is calling for developers to populate the new storefronts.
The Appstore will expand to cover 200 more countries, including Australia, Brazil, Mexico, Canada, South Africa and South Korea.
The storefronts are expected to open ‘in the coming months’ when the online retailer officially launches its Amazon Appstore for Android internationally. Up to now, the service was only available in the US, UK, France, Italy, Germany, Spain and Japan.
“Amazon’s platform is a complete end-to-end solution for developers wanting to build, market and monetize their apps and games on Kindle Fire and Android devices,” said Mike George, VP of Apps and Games at Amazon, in a statement.
“Allowing developers to target distribution of their apps and games in even more international countries is yet another important milestone as we strive to serve consumers and developers globally. Many of our existing developers have localized their apps and games for international consumers, and we look forward to working with new developers that have been waiting to bring their apps to more Amazon customers across the globe.”
