Until now, users of touch devices we obtained what we needed for our terminals through the application and content stores, something to which we can now add the possibility of acquiring new media within the applications that we have installed, thanks to the making available by Amazon of its new sales service for inclusion within the applications that developers will be able to implement in their own developments.
By now we will be used to large companies putting their products on sale at a price below what they should, generating losses, in order to achieve a sufficient market share, and obtain the profits through the sale of contents or other elements. Amazon has also taken this path with respect to their device but its movement goes further since anyone who has any Android terminal, be it Kindle Fire or another, can install applications through its App Store, which can carry sales characteristics. .
And it is that Amazon will obtain 30% of the sales that will be made within the applications, but also it is an enormous comfort for the users of Android terminals themselves, as they do not have to leave from different applications to obtain new media. Developers and major publishers already use this service, something that perhaps other initiatives will soon add, and is increasingly common.
