Amazon Appstore Now Accepts Self-Contained Web Apps
Developers can now submit apps which are not dependent on an external website like, for example, an ebook app or a news app.
The app has to include all required components and com wrapped in a ZIP file, and and Amazon will offer that web app to millions of Kindle Fire and Amazon Appstore customers.
Amazon has long supported apps which were mere extensions of websites, but with today’s news Amazon is encouraging developers to break free of external dependencies. In much the same way that Chrome adding an offline mode for apps made it more useful, today’s news will make HTML5 apps a viable option in the Amazon Appstore.
