Amazon.com introduce Amazon Coins
Launching in the US only (for the time being), the idea is to both facilitate easy in-app purchasing and also to allow parents to allocate a number of coins to children rather than letting them lose with their 1-click payments or credit card.
It's good news for developers as anything which eases the process of in-app purchases is sure to increase revenue, although so many games now have hidden charges you do have to wonder when people will say enough is enough.
For the customer, Amazon.com have pledged to give away tens of millions of dollars worth of coins to celebrate the launch in May. Lucky old US customers
