Amazon Dash Replenishment, the service that enables connected devices to automatically reorder physical products from Amazon, has just launched for developers, and device integrators in the UK and Germany.

Now, developers in the UK and Germany can take advantage of Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.de’s authentication and payment systems, customer service, and fulfillment network to ensure that customers never have that “ran out of it” moment.

To get started, login to the Dash Replenishment Service (DRS) device wizard on the developer portal and create a US device.

Once the device is created you will see a link in the wizard to add UK/DE marketplaces in the device summary. Complete and submit the form. Amazon will provision your device and create a test ASIN list that is supported in each marketplace.

In order to provide a great experience to users, the first thing you have to think about is the user interface (UI) of your app. Designing the UI and UX (user experience) of an app could become a very challenging and time-consuming task, but there are some simple steps that you can follow to make your app look great on tablets.

Mario Viviani, Amazon Technology Evangelist, will be hosting a live webinar as he shares with how to implement solid UI design for Android tablets. He should know! Mario is a former Google Development Expert (GDE) who has done design work for the world’s most popular Android tablets. In this presentation, Mario will explain the relationship between different layouts and fragments; how screen density, screen resolution, display size, and density pixels all work together; and how to also apply that knowledge to Amazon Fire tablets. After this presentation, you’ll not only have a better understanding of how to design UI for tablets, but you’ll understand more about optimizing your Android design for any form-factor!

Join us on July 28th to learn how to optimize your Android app UI and understand Tablet UI basics. At the end of this webinar you will learn:

  • Best strategies to properly create and size layouts & graphical resources of your app.
  • How to better understand screen resolution and density for Android devices.
  • How to explicitly declare support for Fire tablets in your Android app manifest.
