Amazon announces free Unity plugins for mobile apps

Amazon today announced the launch of free Unity plugins for its in-app purchasing and Amazon GameCircle APIs, adding support for mobile  developers who want to increase monetization and engagement among their users.

Developers will be able to use these plugins to add achievements, leaderboards and Whipsersync for Games to their Kindle games.

Amazon’s been stepping up its support for mobile developers on the Kindle platform. Earlier this year, Amazon launched both social features and in-app purchasing API for Kindle games, followed by its GameCircle social network. The Unity developer community is immense, so adding APIs for the development software will do a lot to make Amazon’s tablets much more appealing for game development.

Developers who are interested in learning more or utilizing these plugins can visit Amazon’s Mobile App Distribution Portal.
