Amazon has finally enabled the in-app purchase system they’ve been working on for a while now. It allows developers to sell paid content. It’s more convenient for all parties involved, especially developers who won’t need to come up with a content distribution system of their own to sell additional content after a game’s release. Of course, they have the option of declining to use Amazon’s purchase system if they don’t like the 70-30 split their way. We’re sure most developers would’t mind, though. In any case, it’s now available for any developer to implement. Have at it! [via Amazon]
