U.S. Cellular Handpicking Apps From Amazon Appstore For Subscribers

Sign in to follow this  


Regional wireless provider U.S. Cellular has become the first carrier to offer its customers a list of curated apps from the Amazon Appstore. Announced today, these Android users will find a new menu greeting them when they launch the Amazon application.

Tapping the menu will result in a list of titles that have been handpicked by the carrier to provide a "practical and fun" experience. U.S. Cellular indicates that the selected apps will span multiple categories (games, business tools, and social media) and will be regularly updated.

While pre-installing the Amazon Appstore isn't new in itself, I've yet to see a service provider deliver a list of curated titles. Today's announcement is but the latest from U.S. Cellular that showcase the carrier's desire to impress its customers. This, along with other services such as Battery Swap and Rewards Program is why J.D. Power and Associates has chosen it as Customer Service Champion two years running. Frankly the bigger players in this space could learn a thing or two from U.S. Cellular.

Kind of neat to see that when you open up the Amazon Appstore there are several apps specifically aimed at USC customers. Have a look and let us know what you think!

yeah this was implemented at least 3 weeks ago.

truth be told, though its interesting to see them work with amazon to do this, the handpicked apps are not special apps,. just higher rated apps.

thats all it is, its not like "this is what is most popular among uscc customers and employees" it is simply built from app ratings.

but none the less, nice to see them working with companies like amazon to customize the experience.

now get us our darn LTE phones lol. (sorry i just had to say it)

Needs to be noted that only customers running USCellular ROMS will see this. I am not seeing it with my CM7 Desire.

Since I have an older phone, are they pre-loading the Amazon Appstore on devices now?
