Unlisting An App Version from the Amazon Appstore
If you have a live app that has already been published to the Amazon Appstore, you may have the option to self-suppress the current version of app. For example, consider a situation where you have an app where you discovered a major bug after the app was published. With the self-suppression feature, you can submit an updated version with the bug fix and a submission request at the time time, which helps ensure that users only get the version of the app that has the bug fix.
Note that the app self-suppression feature only applies to typical Android app submissions.
