If you are a developer who has had an app in our store for a while, or someone new to our platform, we encourage you to use Amazon Appstore and Kindle Fire badges and branding to help promote your app. In this article we’ll review badges, other images, links and guidelines for their use with your app and marketing.
There are two badges with three color-treatments each that you can use. Here are the badges that you can use to promote the availability of your app in our U.S. store:
The Amazon and Kindle Fire badges above are available in English, Spanish, German, French, Italian and Japanese. The Amazon badges are also available in Portuguese.
You can get full-size downloads of these badges on this page, along with some usage guidance.
If you’d like to use a plain icon:
Or if you would like to use a Kindle device image:
You can find links to those resources about half way down this page.
Links to the Amazon Appstore
For web-browser based linking, please:
Use this link structure: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/ASINnumber/ref=mas_pm_app_name
Replace the bold “.com” with your country marketplace suffix. (.com for US, .de for Germany, etc)
Replace the bold “ASINnumber” with your mobile app’s ASIN (Amazon Standard Item Number) and app name. Please use an underscore (_) to separate the words in the “app_name” portion, if your title is more than one word. You can find the ASIN on the Product Details section of your mobile app on www.amazon.com/apps.
For example, this is the Air Patriots link in the German marketplace:
For in-app advertising or mobile app-based linking:
In the US:
Use this link structure: http://www.amazon.com/gp/mas/dl/android?p=com.example.package&ref=mas_pm_app_name
Replace the bold portions with the package name of your APK, and app name respectively.
For our international stores:
Use this link structure:
Replace the bold portion with the package name of your APK.
NOTE: With any of these link structures, please test the links before using them to make sure that they direct to the correct page or search results.
The link instructions above are pretty much identical to the guidance near the bottom of this page.
Other Useful Guidelines
There is still more good stuff on the handy page I keep linking to. This includes guidelines for correct use of the Amazon Appstore trademark when blogging or using social media to promote your app. I would, of course, be remiss if I failed to mention the legal requirements listed at the bottom of the page. Our attorneys have done a good job of breaking the important points down into easily readable bullet points. Please do look at them, it won’t take long.
Just in case you missed the link earlier, you can read all of this information here, on our developer portal.
