Amazon Appstore now supports In-App purchases

The Amazon Appstore took a giant step towards closing the gap with Google Play (Android Market) by announcing today that app developers can use Amazon 1-Click purchasing in their apps. The Amazon Appstore has continued to gain traction as an alternative to Google’s app store, and with the launch of the Kindle Fire last year found itself the center stage for users wanting Android apps on the device.

In-app purchasing has become increasingly popular, especially for Android apps where developers have had a hard time getting users to pay the original download fee their iOS counterparts have been demanding. Common in-app purchases have been for game based currency, extra levels of play, and character add-on like different outfits or weapons.
