– Amazon (NSDQ: AMZN), Android: Next up in Amazon’s increasing use of the Android platform is the free Amazon for Android app for the UK market. This is an extension of the iPhone app already available: in addition to being able to access all regular Amazon online shopping services, users can now use the app to scan a product barcode, which then looks up the item in Amazon’s own store for purchase.
— Kongregate: After making some interface adjustments, Kongregate has been reinstated in the Android market. The gaming portal was orignally pulled off Google’s app store the same day it debuted a week ago, for violating Google’s terms of service by creating a competing app store within the Market.

— Three MusicStore: Following a launch on Android devices last month, Three UK is extending its “social music” service to other devices on its network. The Three MusicStore lets a subscriber download full tracks to a handset and then update the subscriber’s status on Facebook or Twitter with the music just purchased. 3MusicStore, created with the mobile content company Fonestarz, is not available on Windows Phone 7 or iPhone devices.
— ITV: The UK broadcaster has renewed a three-year deal with the Mobile Interactive Group to be the exclusive provider of mobile interactive services for ITV’s broadcast shows such as This Morning, Dancing on Ice and I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!. The two launched this past weekend a service that they are calling an “industry first”: a mobile voting platform that lets users purchase credits for votes in advance of the show, which they can then use to vote while on the move (and presumably not watching the show).
