Not so much actually. S#&^^y google play kept crashing my tablet's. Samsung is allergic to Google play(can't tell you how awesome it was finding that out from the Tmobile tablet service dork) Delete cache and restart gets old REALLY fast. Not to mention that all my devices can pull easily from amazon, and that isn't the case with play. It's a misery to have 5 devices with google play. With Amazon app you just log in and go.
There are lots of reasons to use Amazon instead of play and you don't seem to know any of them. If you prefer play fine, I can respect that, but preference isn't a terribly valid reason to make a definitive statement like that.
I don't hate play on the phones (I despise it on the tablets) but it's nowhere near as good at meeting my needs as Amazon. It can be a resource hog for sure and the updating on some apps is most definitely lethargic. Put that up against the 150+ apps and multiple devices I can manage easily and without much BS or skipping around and Play is the crap option for my needs.
Not trying to start a pissing match either, it only matters because that was my attitude when Amazon Apps launched I got tired of the 3 hour calls to tmobile tech support and doing the cache clearing hokey mf'ing pokey and DL'd amazon. The pro's significantly outweigh the cons for my needs.
Play is a fine app, but there are some conditions that make Amazon Apps the better option.

Sharing a Google account you're sharing email, docs, searches, phone numbers, etc. There's just a lot more tied to it.
The free app of the day is occasionally decent too.

some of the MP3 credits you get a code through your email - then you have to enter it for the credit to show up.
Also - every once in a while Coinstar has a promo going - you deposit at least $20 in coins/cash - ask for a Amazon gift certificate, and you would get a free voucher for $5 of mp3 credits. Unfortunately this last promo period ended last week - 9/23. But they usually run it every few months - so watch out for the next one.
I scored $25 in free mp3 vouchers - I had $80 in coins stashed away, and cashed them in $20 at a time to get max mp3 vouchers. For the last $20, I had to add in cash to reach the full $20. Another way of going about it, if you shop a lot on Amazon (like I do - ebooks, mp3s, apps, etc.) is to go to the bank and get coins for your money - then feed in $20 at a time to get your $5 mp3 voucher in addition to your $20 voucher (it prints right below your $20 Amazon voucher codes).
I know I'm going to keep my eyes open for the next Coinstar/Amazon Deal.

|threebeers||Shortsighted discussion above. I bought all apps I wanted from both Play Store and Amazon Store. Why? If I pick up a used Kindle Fire, there they are. If I pick up a cheap device that does not support Gapps, they can be had through Amazon. If one or the other stores limits the number of devices on which they can be downloaded, I'll use the other. Outlay maybe four bucks. Its a quarter each folks...|
