Recently the Amazon Appstore has been telling me there's an updated version available - has anyone installed the update ? Does the workaround still work ?

I've avoided it until now, but the daily update notification is getting annoying :D

Other than being able to get the free App a Day thing, is there any other benefit to signing in to the Amazon App Store? Do they have a range of apps not included in the normal Android Market?

confirm the alternative way working. And it's easiest.

Add: have to turn on 1-click setting on mobile:
try to purchase any free app, then it will ask for that, just click the link,put ANY mobile number with +1 like +17537483535 then press turn on and done :D

I followed the instructions here, and I still get the "not yet available in your region" error message.

An American friend of mine just came up with a great idea for buying paid for apps! I have an account setup with all the fake alternate details from post 1 so cannot pay for anything. So he sent me a a gift certificate and the 1click buy on the website used that instead of checking the card. :)

I would just like to post my success with this, never really thought of trying it before, it's actually a lot easier than it sounds, made a gmail.com (US) addy. Made a Amazon.com (US) Account. Used Apple's address for my home & card billing. Used a Discovery card number from the test card page.

Everything registered fine, downloaded the appstore from the link here & just installed my first free app of the day!

Brilliant!

If you have twitter and click the button on this page to tweet a message for them, Amazon will give you $2 appstore credit: http://t.co/VKpKR97f
As I mentioned above, credit can be used to buy apps even with an invalid card. :)

I wonder what happens to this free $2
Amazon appstore has a bit of a reputation for sharp practice in discounting developers apps without their say-so
If you buy an app with your free $2 I wonder whether the developer makes $2 (less the Amazonian commission) or whether the developer takes the hit ?

Thanks for the guide Paul, really should of searched for this a long time ago, rather than you telling me about it via twitter. I can now get the free app of the day.

works a treat thank you!

I'm pretty new to Android and was wondering if it is possible to reinstall the apps if you wipe your phone?
