App of the Week – Amazon Underground

Published on October 14, 2015

This week, "App of the Week" becomes "Apps of the Week" thanks to the new "Amazon Underground" app. Through the Amazon Underground app, users now have more thanĀ $10,000 worth of paid apps, games, and in-app items that have become fully available... for free.

How does it work? Amazon Underground has adopted a new monetization model that pays app developers based on the amount of time the Amazon Underground app is used. Developers get to skirt the download or in-app fees that is usually how revenue is generated, and instead, get paid by Amazon for backing them. In turn, Amazon Underground users get access to a wide network of apps, within one app alone. Cool, huh?

Don't forget: Amazon has promised Android users many more benefits to come. We can't wait.
