Purchase & Install an App

You can instantly download games and mobile apps from the Amazon Appstore to your Fire Tablet, Android, or BlackBerry OS v10.3 devices.

Amazon Appstore purchases require either a 1-Click payment method, gift card funds, or enough Amazon Coins 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. For more information, go to About 1-Click Ordering.

  1. Go to the Amazon Appstore for Android from your computer or compatible Android or BlackBerry device.
  2. Browse or search for apps, and then open the detail page of an app you'd like to purchase.
  3. Select Buy Now or Get Now.

To access your purchased app:

Tips:
  • You can also access purchased apps and games from the Apps & Games section of the Amazon app for Android version 5.0 or higher. For more information about the Amazon app for Android, go to About the Amazon Shopping App.
  • If your app isn't listed, tap Refresh to check for new items.
  • If you haven't received an order confirmation e-mail 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 free space to install successfully. If you encounter an error, clear some space on your device before trying to install the application again.
