So I've recently noticed how great FreeTime Unlimited is for my daughter. There's no ads, no in-app purchases, etc. She can just play the games/apps and I don't have to worry about it.
As a develop I thinking it could an interesting avenue to go down, but there's a few things that I for the life of me can't get Amazon support/forums to answer in any logical manner.
So the idea according to their information is that the apps are highly scrutinized to verify they are child friendly content, which is excellent. Also, you can't use webviews, ads, or in-app purchases.
My question is: How do devs monetize these applications? Clearly they're not just giving away their work for free? The only logical answer I can guess at, is that it uses the Amazon Underground scheme of earning $$ based on the amount of time the user spends in the app/game??
Does anyone have and actual experience or information on this? As I said, I've reached out to multiple people at Amazon, and keep getting the runaround with all of them pointing me to the same useless link.
