Astute Kindle Fire users have probably realized this, but an indispensable app has long been absent from the Amazon Appstore. I’m referring, of course, to Pokémon TV, which saw an iOS and Android release last February. Thankfully, Kindle Fire users can finally catch up (‘em?) with Ash and the gang starting today.

You’ve heard of Bitcoins and Dogecoins, but have you ever heard of Amazon Coins? It’s hard to blame anyone for forgetting about their release last year, especially considering the digital currency’s use was initially restricted to Kindle Fire devices. Starting today, the shopping giant is expanding Coins to Android devices in the US, UK, and Germany through the Amazon Appstore. (more…)
