Amazon Android App Store lets you try before you buy

Posted in Amazon by Conner Flynn on March 28th, 2011

Amazon has added new feature to their Android App Store that now allows you to try applications before you buy them. We can all appreciate that. We will get stuck with fewer apps we don’t like. The feature is called ‘Test Drive’. It’s an online emulator that allows you to try the Android app within the browser. This gives Amazon an edge against Google’s Android Market which doesn’t have a feature like this.

The new ‘Test Drive’ feature is only available to users in the US right now and it does have some restrictions. The service is also not available on every app in the Amazon App Store just yet. It’s only available on a few hundred apps, but more are being added as we type.
