    Hi,

    Has the Appstore app been removed now that the Amazon Shopping app has been added to 10.3.2? The shopping app has access to the Appstore, if both of these are installed we will get multiple notifications each time an app has an update pending.

    I do not think the Amazon Shopping App is the same as the Amazon Appstore!

    I could be wrong!!

    I never said they were the same, I have both installed and have had both since the Amazon Shopping app became available. The Amazon Shopping app contains the Amazon Appstore. I don't see the point in bundling both apps.

    There's been prior discussions on CrackBerry about whether or not the Amazon Shopping app is going to replace the Amazon Appstore because it's a newer, better, more efficient implementation.

    I never said you did either! I was just stating my opinion based on what you said. Apologies if came across wrong.

    I understand where you are coming from.. it's just that as I see them as being so different, I can't see why they may out do each other. They serve different purposes I think.

    Sorry for the misunderstanding. That has been the point that in a way they are different because one is purely the Appstore and the other is a portal to Amazon, however due to the inclusion of the Appstore in the Shopping app it means we have duplication.

    Each time there is an app update I get two notifications for the same update, click one I go to one store and click the other I go to the app (apologies for pointing out the obvious), however because I chose to install the Shopping app I just see it as a minor inconvenience. If BlackBerry installed both by default I wouldn't expect the duplicate notifications.

    The Kindle Fire range of tablets has been hugely successful, it won't be disappearing any time soon.

    I didn't know that the new Amazon app had the appstore in it but it sure does, so thanks for that. I have both apps on my phone and if I see an update notice I'll post.

    I should add: I have both because I did the nondestructive update to 10.3.2.281. So that doesn't mean that the leaked OS has both... I already had both.

    I believe the Appstore within the Shopping App doesn't understand the setting regarding installing apps from a third party, although you can update apps, when trying to install new apps it prompts you to allow installs from third party sources (which you already have done). Hopefully this will be fixed during the production of 10.3.2 because I informed Amazon of the issue when the app was first released.

    I just tried it. Works for me. In fact, amazingly well.. so much faster than the appstore app.

    But you can't delete the appstore from the device. Maybe with sachesi.

    Nor did I.

    OP, I understand your post a tad better now. There does seem to be duplication of function!

    You are right it does now work!

    In my opinion the app is a much better implementation and Appstore is surplus to requirements.

    I wonder if it has been removed from 10.3.2?
