The Amazon App Store is the best alternative to the Google Android Market currently available although don’t you get annoyed at its notifications? It is worth the notifications for the free app a day allowing you to create an impressive collection of Android apps without costing you a thing. Even with it being worth it you can now remove these annoying notifications with the Amazon App Store’s recent update.
While Amazon needs a way to subsidize its giving away of apps every day and the notifications are a way of doing this we can’t be expected to get 10 or so notifications a day and be happy about it. Amazon has finally made it possible to create a better user experience by disabling these notifications if you wish.
All you need to do is download the newest version of the Amazon App Store and it will have the setting required to take care of the notifications. This will require Amazon App store version 2.2 of newer.
How to Disable Push Notifications from the Amazon App Store:
- Open the Amazon Appstore
- Tap the menu button and select “Settings“
- Select “Notifications” (about half way down the list)
- Uncheck the boxes you don’t want to receive notifications for
Hope this helps those of you that have been getting the massive number of push notifications from the app. If you have any issues after following the instructions above let us know.
UPDATE: So after disabling all notifications from within the Amazon Appstore app everything was great and we received no push notifications for a while. What we did notice is after the next update all of the notifications automatically re-checked themselves. What this means is that you will need to follow the instructions above each time you update the app store.
