Is Verizon Axing the Google Play Store? Droid DNA coming with Amazon’s App Store Suite Pre-Installed


Tuesday 13th of November 2012 / androidheadlines.com
This is some pretty interesting news. Among all the Nexus and Android 4.2 news today, HTC and Verizon got together in New York to announce the HTC Droid DNA. Now we are still learning bits and pieces of this device but we know the overall spec’s already. Now Amazon has evidently come out and said that their App Store will come pre-installed on the new Verizon Droid DNA when it launches later this month. Now the big question is, what’s going to happen to Google Play?We really have no idea yet. But this is what the Amazon App Store Suite features:All the Content:  Customers get instant access to over 22 million books and songs.“Buy Once, Enjoy Everywhere:” With apps available on the largest number of devices and platforms, Amazon makes it easy for customers to access their content anytime, anywhere, from virtually any device or platform they choose.  Customers can read and sync their Kindle books across iPad, iPhone, PC, Mac, Android phones and tablets, BlackBerry, Windows Phones and in their web browsers with Kindle Cloud Reader.  AmazonMP3s are available on iP

Angry Birds Rio to Be Offered Exclusively Through Amazon’s App Store; Ad-Free Versions of Original, Seasons Too


Monday 14th of March 2011 / phandroid.com
It’s begun, folks. Amazon’s app store is starting to gain traction and now they’re attracting one of the biggest game developers in the mobile market – Rovio. They’ve announced that their Angry Birds Rio title – a companion game to the animated movie – will launch exclusively in their app store.This isn’t a move that’s new to Rovio as they launched the original Angry Birds for Android title exclusively in GetJar’s store. The difference between that launch and this one is they did not specify whether or not this exclusivity is timed. We don’t know if we’ll ever see Angry Birds Rio in the Android market.It’s not so bad if you don’t mind playing with ads, though, as this game will be just as free as the rest of them. If you’d rather pay to get rid of those ads, though, you’ll need to bypass the Android market to do so – something we know many of you are not particular fans of.And if you want to get rid of the ads on those other titles, then you’ll need to go through Amazon for tha

Verizon Shutting Down its App Store in Favor of Google Play and Amazon’s App Store


Monday 05th of November 2012 / androidheadlines.com
Remind me again why Verizon had it’s own App Store? It’s puzzling why they would spend money to have their own App Store when there is the Google Play Store (formerly Android Market) and Amazon’s App Store. Well today, Verizon announced in a Blog post that they would be taking down their App Store. And any downloaded apps from the store that involve payment will be taken down by March 2013.The Verizon Apps Store will be officially closing in January, and Verizon stated they would be sending more information to customers and developers at that time. After the initial shut down in January, they will begin to phase out development kits, and the app store itself. Including any apps that accept one-time payments, per download payments, usage-based payments, in-app purchases, and monthly subscriptions. Here’s the full post from Verizon’s Developer website:Verizon set out to create an app storefront, offering device optimization, security and simplicity for developers. Verizon Apps launched in March 2010— the beginning of what would be an app popularity surg

Report: Google Play revenues closing in on Apple’s App Store, up 311 percent


Friday 30th of November 2012 / phandroid.com
A sticking point for developers has long been the perceived notion that the Android Market/Google Play Store has never been all that profitable. Even with an install base that outnumbers that of Apple, the iOS App Store has always been the bigger revenue generator. According to a report from App Annie, the tides are starting to turn.There is still quite the divide between the two platforms, with Apple’s marketplace generating four times the revenue of Google’s, but the Play Store has seen tremendous growth over the past year. Since January, revenues are up 311 percent. Overall downloads are up 48 percent.In the past month Google saw a positive gain in revenue while Apple’s dipped slightly. It would appear Google’s time to overtake Apple is approaching, though a closer look at the data suggests another outcome. While the gap is narrowing, both companies have seen a drop off in growth. App downloads and revenues could be peaking. We could be watching the mobile apps and games bubble as it nears its bursting point.Interesting to note is the fact that Japan, where
