App checks app compatibility, adds action notices

Amazon has released a new update for browsing and purchasing software from its mobile shop. Amazon Appstore 2.2 offers several improvements to notifications and app compatibility verification. It's available now directly from the online retail giant (free, Amazon).

The enhanced notifications settings now allow for enabling or disabling notices when the downloading and completion of an app has been completed, advisories when new updates for an application become available, and changes to the status bar. The compatibility feature lets a user check to make sure an app will actually work on a given device before spending time downloading it. The update further improves payment option messages.

This is the first release since November, when Amazon distributed an update in anticipation of the first shipments of its Kindle Fire tablet. [via Android Central]
