The Amazon Appstore still hasn’t appeared in the UK, but our transatlantic cousins – who were treated to a free exclusive download of Angry Birds Rio when the Appstore launched last week – can now take advantage of a Test Drive feature before buying some apps.
The feature allows customers to play around with an app on their computer for up to 30 minutes. Of course, that means using a mouse instead of a touchscreen, so it’s not quite the genuine Android experience.
The Test Drive facility is only available for around 20 apps at the moment, but more are expected soon.
I think I can safely speak for all UK-based Android users when I say: screw Test Drive; where the hell’s the Appstore?
