Purchase & Install an App

You can instantly download games and mobile apps from Amazon using your Fire tablet, Android devices, or BlackBerry OS v10.3 devices (where available).

Amazon Appstore purchases are paid in US dollars and require an international credit card to cover the entire purchase amount (including any applicable tax).

You can get free apps without a payment method as long as you’re located in a supported country.

Note: At this time, the Amazon Appstore app and its associated content are available in over 200 countries and territories. For more information, go to Countries & Territories Eligible to Shop for Apps.

Amazon Appstore also offers Android device users Actually Free apps, which include free in-app content. For more information, go to About Amazon Actually Free Apps.

To purchase and install an app:

To access your purchased apps:

  1. Launch the Amazon Appstore app on your device.
  2. Tap My Apps.
  3. Your apps appear under the Latest, A - Z, and Not Installed tabs.

  • If your app isn't listed, swipe down from the top of the screen to check for new items.
  • If you haven't received an order confirmation email for your app purchase, try checking your order history and update your payment method if necessary.
  • Some apps require up to four times their listed file size in available space to install successfully. If you encounter an error, clear some space on your device before trying to install the application again.
  • Your device must connect to the internet periodically to access certain downloaded content. For apps that use our digital rights management system, you must connect your device to the internet every 60 days. To learn more about digital rights management, please review the Appstore Terms of Use.
