The new Amazon Appstore is another example of the lack of options and feature sets of the default Android application market. And the Android application market is falling prey to the same issues and problems that Twitter has; everyone does what they do, what they offer, better than they do; and it’s their service!
But this is all too confusing now for the average consumer? Why do you now have options to where you can go and get your applications for Android? It’s all too confusing!
Obviously, the people are searching for options, rich feature sets and a good selection of applications.
While Amazon is another ‘market’, AppBrain simply does what the market is supposed to do, but much better. But here’s the kicker, apparently, Amazon and the default application market from Google aren’t inter-compatible; so you have to choose between the one or the other…
I see this as a fairly large support issue for Android… How could they allow an additional market be added to Android and it NOT be compatible with the default one. Hopefully, users deciding to use Amazon will know the difference, otherwise, I believe you’re giving attention to a lot of support calls that’ll rightfully belong to Amazon…
