Latest BlackBerry 10 update adds Amazon Appstore

BlackBerry 10 devices will be getting access to a second app marketplace with the 10.3.1 OS update, which will bring users access to Amazon Appstore.

With the new update, the more work and business-focussed BlackBerry World storefront will sit alongside the Amazon Appstore on users' home screens.

The Amazon Appstore, which runs forked versions of Android apps, will provide access to games such as Candy Crush Saga. 

However, the availability and functionality of some apps running on BlackBerry 10 is said to vary.

The update has already began rolling out, so BlackBerry 10 users should get the opportunity to upgrade to the new version soon.
