Amazon Appstore Will Soon Be Available In Almost 200 Countries


Amazon has today announced that it will be expanding its Android Appstore to almost 200 countries “in the coming months.” Developers can now submit apps in preparation for the expansion, which will see the Appstore rolling out to Australia, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, India, South Africa, South Korea, and many more.

Registered Appstore developers who want their titles to be available for international distribution will have them automatically made available to download in the added territories when they become available.

The Amazon Appstore first launched in March 2011, but it still has a limited reach, available only in the U.S., Canada, Japan, the U.K., and parts of Europe.

With support for almost 200 countries planned in the coming months, then, this is a massive step for the retail giant — one that suggests the company is keen to take on rival services like Google Play and the Apple App Store.
