Amazon to Let Devs Charge for Android Web Apps
Amazon today began allowing developers to set list prices for their HTML5-based web apps for Android devices. Amazon has let developers offer their web apps through the Amazon Appstore since last year, but until today only permitted those apps to be free. Moving forward, developers can choose to monetize their apps. According to Amazon, prices can be applied to apps already in the Appstore if developers want, as well as new apps. The upgraded status of web apps also means web app developers can participate in Amazon's Free App of the Day promotion. More information is available from Amazon's developer web site.
