Amazon has made available a new version of its Amazon Appstore mobile app for Android. Amazon says the Appstore has been rebuilt from the ground up with revised navigation tools. For example, a nav bar at the bottom of the app lets people jump between different pages, while the categories tab lets users quickly sort through apps in a more visual way. A tab called My Apps helps people manage the apps they've already downloaded from the Appstore to their device. The Appstore makes use of Amazon Coins for making app purchases. People can buy Coins in bulk at a discount, which Amazon says saves money over the long run when compared to traditional payment methods. Amazon says most Android app developers won't need to do anything to adjust their apps for the new Appstore. The Amazon Appstore for Android is free to download directly from Amazon.
