Developers, Amazon offering Cloud-service credit for App Store submissions

Extra exposure, it’s free , and there’s less competition; there’s really not much reason why you shouldn’t submit your app to the Amazon App Store. Granted, even we’ve been skeptical of the profit to be had. Nevertheless, if your a developer who’s been holding back, Amazon has got an offer that hopes to change your mind. Starting this morning, anyone who submits and app to the store gets a $50 credit to Amazon’s Web Services suite. The credit is good toward any aspect of the suite which includes:

  • Amazon ElastiCache
  • Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2)
  • Amazon Elastic MapReduce
  • Amazon CloudFront
  • Amazon Relational Database Service(RDS)
  • Amazon Route 53
  • Amazon SimpleDB
  • Amazon Simple Email Service (SES)
  • Amazon Simple Notification Service(SNS)
  • Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS)
  • Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3)
  • AWS Elastic Beanstalk

While only a $50 credit, if you play your cards right, that may cover your app’s costs through testing up through launch.
