Marmalade to Fire up Developers

Easy Deployment to Amazon Appstore Supported by $80K Prize Draw

London, UK.   21 July 2014. Marmalade Technologies Ltd, providers of the free, top-rated cross-platform app development tool, today announced a brand new offer for developers who deploy their Marmalade apps to the Amazon Appstore, enabling them to reach the rapidly growing audience on Android devices, Kindle Fire, Fire TV and Fire Phone.

Supported by a weekly draw with a total prize pot worth $80,000* Marmalade is excited to offer its developers some great prizes when they bring their app to the rapidly growing Appstore, which Amazon supports with a range of free tools to help developers boost app discovery and revenue.

Harvey Elliott, CEO of Marmalade Technologies said: “We’re really pleased to be able to offer our developer community more great reasons to bring their Marmalade apps to the Amazon Appstore.  Amazon’s phenomenal growth and developer-friendly reputation, combined with the recent launches of Amazon Fire TV and Fire phone are already great reasons to be on the platform, and we’re delighted to add further incentives through our weekly prize draw.”

Marmalade enables developers to deploy to multiple platforms easily from a single code base often by simply redeploying their app or game, whilst maintain maximum speed and performance – a far more cost efficient way of launching onto new platforms when compared to a native approach to app development.

In it to win it – how to enter the prize draw:

·        Every Marmalade app that is successfully submitted to the Amazon Appstore entitles developers to enter into the weekly prize draw. Each week, for 10 weeks, Marmalade will be offering 12 lucky developers $8,000 worth of prizes, including:

  • Amazon Fire TV devices
  • Amazon Kindle Fire devices
  • Amazon.com vouchers
  • Marmalade Plus licenses
