You can reach a whole new audience on Fire tablets and other devices—with little to no modifications to your Android app. In fact, 85 percent of apps that we tested work as-is with the Amazon Appstore. This blog provides a quick overview of what you need to know to get started.
Before you begin the publishing process, review the requirements and guidelines for app submission in the Amazon Appstore Presubmission checklist. In the checklist, you will find detailed information on app content guidelines, icon and screenshot image requirements, testing requirements, and more.
Although many Android apps will work as-is, there is a small subset of Google APIs, services, and features that will require modifications. We try to make it as easy as possible to identify these modifications.
Steps for bringing an existing Android app to the Amazon Appstore:
- Migrate any APIs, services, and features to those supported by Fire OS, if necessary.
- Update your minimum API level as required for the Fire OS devices that you plan to support.
- Remove any unsupported features from your app.
- Recompile your app.
- Submit your app to the Amazon Appstore.
