amazon designed some the apps as optimized for kindles and are coded as kindle tablet editions which is what the grand theft auto game might be

got it, thank you!

I can't fathom how playing a GTA game on a cellphone would be fun. With the touchscreen and all it just sounds like it would be annoying. Even on a tablet I just don't see how it wouldn't be annoying.

Who says you have to? Both the DualShock 3 and 360 pad, and maybe even the new console controllers, work great with most Android devices. There are also Android specific solutions like the MOGA controllers.

 

Also, Amazon, the company offering this deal, has something that might work and was recently launched. It's probably not a coincidence.

To add to this discussion, buying a Fire TV and controller is a pretty slick deal right now, for customers dropping the $140 on the Fire TV + Controller you'd get (or be able to get):

 

1. The Fire TV

2. The Game Controller

3. Sev-0, the game we made

4. 1,000 Coins for buying the controller

5. You could then use those 1,000 Coins to get GTA: San Andreas for free

6. You could then use your 2,000 additional Coins to get $20 in additional games

 

Cheers,

Tony

For some reason when I bought it I was given an additional 500 coins so now I have 2500 coins and $1.01 in app store credit.

same thing with me, then i noticed the email from amazon, in which we got a -500 in promotions credited towards the purchase.

I don't know if your department is responsible for all those recent AppStore promos but keep it up!

I'd like to see a sale on great games without any IAP. The Room 1 & 2 (especially if we could get non-Kindle Fire builds, though I won't hold my breath), Ridiculous Fishing, Threes!, and Monument Valley come to mind.

 

Feel free to stop in the general Android thread as well. The Amazon Appstore and Coin deals make up a large part of the discussion.

Finally decided to buy it and get the coins. I was thinking of buying a Kindle Fire HDX (the offline watching of Prime videos is a big reason for it) for myself and a Fire TV for my mom so maybe I'll get to play San Andreas on one of those devices.

Glad to see you're still around.  Haven't been in the Amazon PCDD thread in some time but thought you were getting replaced.

 

Personally I like deals like this because where it's something I would be interested in like GTA SA but wouldn't really buy on it's own at $7 but when there's a credit towards more apps or something similar that I'll actually use to offset that it becomes more appealing.  The Minecraft promo with the 350 coins that essentially makes it half off is another good deal.  Or how buying certain digital PC games recently got you $5 of AppStore credit.  Like NBA 2K14 was a good deal on it's own at $7.50 but even better with that $5.  So it doesn't even have to be credit for the same category but something that has value to me is good too.  Though I'm sure we all prefer straight discounts this isn't a bad alternative when that's not an option.

 

That and more discounts/promotions on "core" games would be great too.

 

What I don't like is getting something like MP3 credit because I never use.  For me things like Spotify are such a staple that even buying music for free just ends up a hassle.

This is certainly a good deal, but I very rarely buy any apps, or play any games on my phone. I've spent a total of $5 on two different apps since getting an Android phone. So I'm not sure if it'll be worth it for me.

Thanks OP. Spent $2 and my free $5 credit and got $20. I call that a bargain - the best I've ever had. (On amazon App Store.)

You actually have to have an Android device to even buy the games. FML  :wall:

Trying to figure out how to download the Amazon version of GTA: San Andreas onto my Shield.  Bought it on my Kindle Fire but when I'm on my Shield with the Amazon Appstore app and try to download it, it says the Shield isn't compatible.  Any ideas?

There's a fair amount of apps available on Amazon, but what about apps that are free (or cheap) to download, but the real cost comes in unlocking content post-download (like Pinball Arcade and Star Wars Pinball), which can only be done in-app (as far as I know). The option to use coins only shows up on Kindle Fires. Is my Android phone (and Amazon coins) no good in these situations?

I just tested it on my phone and it let's me use coins for the star wars tables.

Damn, I purchased The King Of Fighters Android using the coins for my Galaxy S3 and it doesn't work, even though it says it's suppose to. Any help would be appreciated.  :-(

Nice deal for those who like Walking Dead...but this is the Amazon Android thread, not the Google Play one. So coins can't be used on this sadly.
