Just thought I'd let everyone know, if you're gonna be serious about app development once the exporter is released then signup to Amazon Developer today. They're currently waiving their annual subscription fee of $99. I think it's a pledge to get as many developers on-board as soon as possible. However, don't let this negate the value of Amazon Marketplace. It is pretty huge, probably 2nd after Google Play.
