Amazon has now opened its own app store for developers

We’ve known for sure since early October last year that Amazon has an Android app store in the works, and the online retailer has now made it open to developers. Application devs interested in making its offerings part of the Amazon ecosystem can sign up for free, since the first batch that registers don’t need to pay the $99 annual fee. Android users will be able to download apps from Amazon’s store later in 2011.

Some people think that multiple application markets are good for Android, but I personally don’t like them, and neither does most developers I’ve been in contact with. As a user, as long as I will still be able to get all apps from the Android Market, additional stores won’t bother me, but if one first has to find the correct source to download an app, it’s clearly a drawback.
