You must be aware of the feeling when you pay for an app, then start using it and suddenly you realize that you were expecting something different. Its like finding out the reality a little too late since you already paid. However, with the Appstore Test Drive feature, this may change for at least some apps. Android users will be able to ‘test drive’ the apps before they decide to purchase it.


The feature will be supported on Amazon’s Appstore so that such Android users who buy an app from the Amazon Appstore will be able to make use of the ‘Test Drive.’ However, this feature comes with some restrictions. For instance, the ‘Test Drive’ feature will work with only such apps which use touch screen and accelerometer features.

The feature is still in beta, so we can hope that Amazon eventually decides to extent the feature to other apps too. According to Amazon, “Today we have enabled over 5,000 apps for Test Drive on Android phones and are adding more all of the time.  Test Drive currently supports apps that utilize the touch screen and accelerometer inputs.  Apps that require Java Native Interface (JNI), keyboard, multi-touch, microphone, camera, gyroscope, near-field communication or GPS are not currently enabled for Test Drive.  As Test Drive adds these features, apps will be automatically re-tested for inclusion.”

To make use of the ‘Test Drive’ feature, a user simply needs to click the ‘Test Drive’ button which will be present on the app’s product page. Once the button is clicked, the app starts running virtually so as to give the user an idea as to what the app will look like when running on their devices.

This, naturally, will be very useful for Android users and will enable them to find the right apps that they need and pay for such apps once they are sure of their content.
