Amazon just unveiled GameCircle for the Kindle Fire, which should add to the overall gaming experience. By far the biggest feature is Cloud Syncing, which is something Android desperately needs. What it does is save in-game progress to the cloud so that players can continue where they left off even if they deleted the game or switch devices. Other features include Achievements and Leaderboards.
In the same way that LinkedIn has become the home of your professional identity, and Facebook the home of your social identity, founder and CEO Adam Lieb wants to turn his startup Duxter into the center of your gaming identity.
There are plenty of other gaming social networks, but Lieb argued that they’re too focused on specific aspects of the gaming experience.
