Amazon Appstore is considered to be one of the best alternatives to Google Play Store because it also offers a wide variety of apps and games for Android smartphones and tablets. The Appstore was available to download from Google Play Store directly but it was pulled down and you won’t be able to find it in Google Play Store now. You don’t need to have a Kindle device to take advantage of the apps in the Amazon Appstore because those are Android apps which can be used on an Android device.
So if you are looking to download Amazon Appstore on Android device, then you need to follow the simple steps below in order to get the app store on your device. Amazon brings new deals and gives away many paid apps for free every now and then and so if you want to take advantage of these offers, you can do it with any Android device. I will show you how you can download the Amazon Appstore APK and then install it on your Android smartphones or tablets.
How to Install Amazon Appstore on Android?
On any Android device, there’s a setting that doesn’t allow you to install apps from unknown sources. These unknown sources refer to everything except, of course, Google Play Store. So if you download the APK file from some other source, you won’t be able to install it unless you turn off the setting. So you need to allow your device to install apps from unknown sources as well.
Step 1: Go to Settings >> Security on your Android phone or tablet and scroll down to “Unknown Sources” and tick the check box to enable this feature. This will allow you to install any APK file and any apps that you download from sources other than Play Store.
Step 2: Now you have to download Amazon Appstore APK file on your Android device. So open the browser app on your device and go to http://www.amazon.com/getappstore and then tap on the download button there to download the APK file of Amazon Appstore. (This will only download the APK file and won’t install the app)
Step 3: Once the download process is complete, you will see a notification in your system tray. So swipe down from the top of your smartphone screen to see the notification and then tap on the Amazon Appstore notification. This will take you to the installation page and then click Next and the click Install to start the installation process of the application. (Alternatively, you can go to your file manager app and install the APK file from the Downloads folder)
After this step is completed, you will have the Amazon Appstore installed on your Android device. You can now start using it just like you use Google Play Store to download various different applications.
