Amazon App Store v2.2.0

It's been a while since the last Amazon App Store update was pushed out and it seems Amazon has been working on some improvements in that time. The latest update pushes the Amazon App Store into v2.2.0 and brings some welcomed changes with it aside from the usual bug fixes and stability improvements:

  • New notifications settings: Enable or disable notifications for - Download and Installation, App updates, Status Bar.
  • Improved messaging regarding payment options.
  • Improved app compatibility checks.

Overall a decent update, especially to the notification system that more or less harassed you each and every second until you attended to them. Plus, app compatibility checks will hopefully help against wasting your time in downloading an app that simply won't work for your device. The update is live now, so go ahead and check for updates or hit the source link to head on over to Amazon and grab the download.

Amazon App Store hits v2.2.0 with new notification settings, improved app compatibility checks

Nice, I hated seeing... There is an update available and never actually seeing an update, or knowing what was being updated.

I am excited to see how the new notification system works (I disabled all notifications from the app). This has been my biggest issue with the amazon appstore, it always reminds you of apps, often ones you don't care about and just grabbed since they were free.

Yeah but can I download larger apps over 4G? I stopped using the amazon appstore because I no longer have wifi at home because 4G is so much faster but amazon wouldn't let me download apps unless i was on wifi.

You know I never really thought much about it but on my phone via 4g WiMax I can download but on my 4G LTE Tablet I can't. Wonder why that is? I don't have the Amazon Appstore on my phone any longer to try again but I may go ahead and re-install it with this latest update.

I wrote Amazon a few times about this feature. I never knew it was there as their reply was always "we working on it". Thank you for this information. You saved my Amazon App Store account life.

I just got a freaking notification for a new app, that isn't new, even though the notifications are turned off. Arrrrggghhhhh
