Without any fanfare or announcements it seems the Amazon Appstore is now available to Australians without the need for proxies, VPNs or dodgy overseas addresses. To install the Amazon Appstore on your phone and start taking advantage of the famous ‘Free App of the Day’, head on over to the Get Started page. You will also need to set up an Amazon account, but feel free to use your Australian address and Australian credit card. You may note there is a large notice reading “The Amazon Appstore is only available to customers located in the United States”, you can ignore that for the time being, I tried to install this myself and it worked fine.

EDIT: And looks like it is region locked to the US again, it was fun while it lasted.

Excellent! Does that mean the Amazon (Android) tablet is due out soon internationally…..

Just bear in mind that when you grab a free app from the Amazon App Store, the developer is not getting paid.  If you really like something, it may not hurt to buy a copy later — most of these things are pretty cheap.

This is very true….. The dev isn’t being paid.

If your going to buy an app. Use the goggle market. As it has better feedback options for debug crashes that the devs like.

Pkus you know it’s going to be around for a while. Amazon could at any point pull the plug without warning!
