Amazon Android App Store Goes Live, Works In China…For Now
Last week Amazon’s Android App Store finally went live, and it was about time too. All of us Android users in China have basically been stuck using Google’s (unfortunately crappy) Android Market. The problem with the Android Market isn’t the number of apps, or it’s ease of use. It’s problem is the fact that Android users here are not allowed purchase any of the paid apps available.
This includes some of the most popular games out there like Fruit Ninja (Amazon App Store)and Doodle Jump (Amazon App Store). Both of which I’m desperate to have the full versions of. Now there are definitely other ways you can grab these apps in China, You can follow AndroidOSTablets way of doing so, or even download the “illegal” free .APK’s (Android App executable files) but if you wanna pay for apps as you should then this seems to be the only way for now.
I just hope that Google gets their act together soon and sorts out their issues with the Chinese government. Until then, head over to the Amazon Android App Store, download the app, and get playing. Also pray the Chinese government doesn’t find out about this little loop hole.
