As you know Apple has Game Center on its iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. This app will also feature gaming achievements and leaderboards.

GameCircle can also automatically save a player’s in-game progress to the cloud and allow them to pick-up exactly where they left off.

Paul Ryder, Vice President of Apps at Amazon Said:

“Our goal is to give developers great tools to quickly and easily reach new customers and keep them engaged. That’s why we’re creating easy-to-integrate APIs for features like leaderboards, achievements and sync. We also introduced In-App Purchasing API in April, allowing developers to offer a seamless 1-Click purchasing experience within their apps and games, and we’re just getting started. GameCircle gives developers the right tools to build an immersive, more entertaining experience on Kindle Fire, which will ultimately help developers grow their business.”
