Amazon is one of the most successful tech companies in history. Primarily known for their focus on e-commerce, the tech giant has since expanded its horizons to such markets as cloud computing, artificial intelligence, and digital streaming.

In 2011, following the success of companies like Google and Apple in the digital entertainment and mobile application space, Amazon launched the Amazon Appstore.
