Independent Developer Bashes the Amazon AppStore

by Cynthia Harvey

Independent developer Bithack calls the Amazon AppStore a "disaster."

In a lengthy blog post, independent developer Bithack lays out the problems with the Amazon AppStore from a developer's perspective. Those problems include a very slow review process, a lack of device filtering, the inability to contact customers directly, no way to give refunds, problems with the review process and Amazon's lowering of the price to 25 percent of what Bithack planned to charge.

The blog concludes, "If you are a small indie development team, or possibly even alone, don't bother with Amazon Appstore. Create a great app, publish it on Android Market, and provide great customer support. You will never succeed on Amazon Appstore without a big wallet, or at least an established reputation so that Amazon puts value behind their promises."
