From Amazon

Dear Mobile App Developer,

Soon, Amazon will open distribution in nearly 200 additional countries, including Australia, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, India, South Africa, South Korea, and even Papua New Guinea and Vatican City. Many new consumers will be able to access a large and growing catalog of apps and games from Amazon. This means that your apps and games will quickly be available to a much larger audience.

In addition to the new distribution, we’re also adding the ability to price your apps in CAD (Canadian Dollars) and BRL (Brazilian Reals) today. You can also submit localized descriptions for Brazil (Portuguese) today, and this feature will be available soon for Canada (French and English).

Recently, we announced new opportunities to monetize your apps on Amazon, including our new Mobile Ads API with competitive eCPM, and the fact that we will be distributing tens of millions of dollars worth of Amazon Coins to U.S. Amazon customers in May, to spend on apps, games, or in-app purchases; and developers will receive their standard revenue share for these purchases. We offer tools to make implementing our APIs simple, including the new, fasterKindle Fire emulators , and the Amazon Mobile App SDK Eclipse Plugin .

If you’re new to distributing apps on Amazon, get started at the Mobile App Distribution Portal . If you already have apps on Amazon, no actions are required. For the full list of countries we’re distributing apps in, click here .
