How to install the Amazon app store for your Android smartphone or tablet

If you run an Android smartphone or tablet, did you know that there’s a good chance you might be able to run Amazon’s app store as well as Google Play? Here’s how to set it up.

 

First, in your settings menu, look through the Applications and Security menus for an option called “Install apps from unknown sources”. If you can find it, make sure you tap it to switch it on.

 

Next, visit this page and press the yellow “Download the Amazon App Store” button in the middle of the screen.

 

When the download is complete, you’ll get a notification saying “AmazonApps-release.apk. has installed”. Tap the notification, tap install, and then tap open. It’s now ready to run.
