Amazon Appstore Presubmission Checklist
The Amazon Appstore enables you to publish your Android app to millions of registered Amazon customers. Use the presubmission checklist to make sure that your app meets all of the requirements to be published to the Amazon Appstore.
Before submitting your app, make sure that your app meets the following requirements and guidelines:
- App Content: Your app meets the Amazon Appstore Content Policy Requirements.
- App Preparation: Follow the tips in Understanding Amazon Appstore Submission in generating the APK files for your app.
- Images: You have created and collected the required images for your app listing, as described in Image Guidelines for Amazon Appstore Submission.
- Intellectual Property (IP) Documentation (if needed) If your app uses the intellectual property (IP) of a third party, be prepared to provide documentation to Amazon that you have obtained the proper license or permission to use that IP from the third party.
- Testing: You have tested your app, and your app passes the test cases described in Test Criteria for Amazon Appstore Apps. To learn more about available testing tools, see Testing Your App for the Amazon Appstore.
- Device Targeting: Specify which devices you plan to target with your app in your Android Manifest file. See Device Filtering and Compatibility.
- Installation Location: Your Android Manifest file specifies the installation location for your app on Fire TV and Fire tablet devices. For most apps, setting this value to External Storage (
preferExternal) will provide a better experience for your app’s users. For more information, see Specifying the Installation Location for Your App.
- Security Profile (GameCircle or Amazon Device Messaging only): If your app uses GameCircle or Amazon Device Messaging APIs, be prepared to associate your app with a security profile as part of the submission process. See Associate Your App with a Security Profile.
- Compile Errors: If your app references nearly 65,000 methods, you will need to reduce the number of methods referenced to avoid compile errors when submitting your app. See Avoiding Compile Errors when Submitting Your App.
After you have completed all of these steps, you can start the process to submit your app to the Amazon Appstore. See Submitting Apps to the Amazon Appstore.
