By launching the app store for Android, Amazon decided to create something similar for Kindle. The largest online store sent out invitations to third-party developers with a proposal to start porting their applications for this device as well.
Of course, a non-touch screen based on e-paper imposes too many restrictions. Creators of dynamic games like Angry Birds, there is nothing to do here. However, the possibilities of the "reader" are still very wide. The device is running linux. It is quite possible to adapt it as an advanced organizer or for working with office documents. The possibility of accessing the Internet quite suggests the emergence of instant messengers and programs for working with social networks. Certainly planned to appear all sorts of encyclopedias, dictionaries and reference books. All this should do Kindle a very attractive solution for consumers who, for some reason, do not want a tablet computer, but a device based on e-ink.
It is still difficult to judge how attractive the proposal will be for developers. However, the emergence of a number of interesting applications is quite predictable.
By the way, third-party craftsmen have already created several applications for Kindle, providing it, for example, with the lack of default support for fairly popular FB2 files (this e-book format is especially popular with us).
