I've finally released my first cut at Amazon integration. This will hopefully be THE revenue stream. As always Book Mobile is free and ad-free. The search result screen now includes a button to open a web browser with the Amazon page for the current book. As part of this integration I now, for the first time, have some metrics about how much the application is being used. All of this is completely anonymous! The last thing I want is the responsibility keeping personal data safe from attack.
In the first 24 hours there have been 664 books successfully looked up. The sad part is that only 7 of them where clicked through to Amazon and non of those users bought anything. So far the only revenue is from last week when my wife used a beta version to buy me another Elmore Leonard paperback -- thanks honey!
This release included a large refactoring of the result screen where most of the error reports are occurring. Please update so I can fix any remaining issues! Better yet, if you are running Froyo you can look for that auto update checkbox on the market application update screen.
