Yesterday Amazon announced a SDK (Software Development Kit) which will allow software developers to build and upload applications that will be available in the Kindle Store later this year.
So Amazon has 'discovered' the App Store, no doubt motivated by rumors of a soon to be announced Apple Tablet.
"We've heard from lots of developers over the past two years who are excited to build on top of Kindle," said vice president of Amazon Kindle Ian Freed in a statement. "The Kindle Development Kit opens many possibilities -- we look forward to being surprised by what developers invent."
Look for apps like CRICKLER to be available for Kindle soon. www.crickler.com/
