Amazon App Store Download Problem
Jughead

I saw today that Amazons App store is available to download.  After logging in online, sending an email to yourself with the download link, and then jumping through a hoop or two I was able to get the App Store on my Droid X.  When I try this from my Xoom it says "Download Started" but I get nothing. I do have "Unknown Sources" checked to allow non-market apps to download.   Anyone else try this with success?

I thought it was failing on the Motoroloa Xoom but the problem was that the download of the Amazon Appstore APK file from http://amzn.to/getamazonappstore was so fast that it was invisible -- I did not see it happen.  But upon looking in the notification bar, I saw a "Download Complete" notification that I could click on to do the install.

Yea, I just tried and got it to work fine. Once the APK was downloaded it prompted me to install, and it installed with no problem.
