Amazon Appstore Developer Portal Hints at Future Plans
Amazon has opened an Appstore Developer Portal that will let developers sell and promote apps on Amazon.com. Though Amazon is offering a 70/30 split in revenue with developers, a common formula, Amazon will also let developers set a "list price" for an app, then tweak that price as the company sees fit. Amazon will vet apps before they are launched, and apps will be promoted as customers browse Amazon.com. Developers can start working with Amazon today after paying a $99 startup fee. Amazon has yet to officially announce a dedicated app store, but this Developer Portal seems to reveal the site's future plans.
