Amazon offers $50 credit to App developers
With the company's much anticipated Android tablet launching soon, the company is looking to bolster their app catalogue by offering incentives to app developers out there. Starting from September 7th and up to the 15th of November, any Android apps submitted to the Amazon App store will earn their developer $50 in credit to Amazon’s Web Services (AWS), on top of any royalties earned. Though the 50 bucks might not mean much, the AWS includes developmental services that will surely prove useful to developers, and the included S3 storage is surely nice to have.
Amazon’s upcoming tablet reportedly forgoes Google’s Android market in favor of the company’s own App Store, and bolstering the amount and quality of the available apps can only benefit Amazon. Of course, the $50 credit ends up right back in Amazon's pocket, and the company doesn't have much to lose from this offer.
