Amazon Launches App Test Drive Feature for AppStore

Amazon has introduced a new platform where Android users can test their apps directly from app store before buying any app of android. Today in any App stores it’s really hard to take a test drive of any particular app so if you purchase an app that you do not like or want then there is a little chance of being able to return it. In most cases, you can’t even try a demo version of the application, so what did Amazon do? They have actually created a virtual machine that allows app users to test out any app from their store in your browser before you buy it.

Amazon more said that; App Test Drive feature is a great solution to an issue that end users currently face. The one downside to Test Drive is that you have to be at a PC and it currently does not work if you are browsing on your mobile device.
According to Amazon Spokesman;

Clicking the "Test drive now" button launches a copy of this app on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), a web service that provides on-demand compute capacity in the cloud for developers. When you click on the simulated phone using your mouse, we send those inputs over the Internet to the app running on Amazon EC2 - just like your mobile device would send a finger tap to the app. Our servers then send the video and audio output from the app back to your computer. All this happens in real time, allowing you to explore the features of the app as if it were running on your mobile device.

Amazon has already launched its AppStore for Android users. It will help users to take a Test Drive of any Android App within their Appstore. In a market where features drive consumers, Amazon has unleashed a top notch product that may draw users away from Google's own Marketplace.
