Amazon Appstore 2.6.53 now available; some devices now have “Test Drive” functionality
A new update is now available for the Amazon App Store app for Android. The new version is labeled 2.6.53 and bring along with it a pretty sweet new feature, called “Test Drive”. Essentially, users can now instantly try out an application, free of charge, before actually purchasing it.
You might remember, a while back this functionality was added to the App Store website, but it’s now ready for use on “select” devices. Unfortunately, we don’t have a full list of those devices at the time, but I can tell you now — it ain’t a-working on my HTC Amaze 4G. I’ll have to run this by a few of the others in the crew to see if they have any better luck.
To install, just click the link below, then check out any application to see if you can try it before buying, as pictured above. Be sure to drop us a line and let us know if it works for you and let us know which device you’re running.
What do you think of the new functionality? Is this something you’d like to see Google incorporate into the Play Store? I wouldn’t mind seeing it myself.
