Amazon today officially opened the doors to its own Android application storefront. The Amazon app store offers a wide range of titles for Android devices, including games, social networking, utilities, productivity and more. The Amazon app store can be reached via Amazon.com for easier app discovery, and is also available as an application directly on Android handsets. The Amazon app store is an off-market application, meaning users will have to allow unauthorized applications to run on their devices in order to install it. It is a free download.

This is in spite of a cease-and-desist order and federal trademark lawsuit filed by Apple computer over the use of the name â€œAppstoreâ€. The term "app" is currently under heavy debate. Apple claims that "App" is like "Kleenex" - a business-specific name that other companies cannot use and is suing Amazon for using it. Microsoft is suing Apple, claiming that "App" is a generic term like "tissue" and should be usable.
