About In-App Purchasing

The In-App Purchasing (IAP) API makes it easy for you to offer digital content and subscriptions for purchase within your app, such as in-game currency, expansion packs, upgrades, magazine issues, consumables, and more. You can quickly be up and running, ready to give millions of Amazon customers the ability to purchase engaging digital content using Amazon 1-Click settings.

In-App Purchasing handles the details of purchase flow, payment processing, receipts, and rights management for the purchasable content. With unique receipt identifiers, the IAP API enables you to easily ensure that customers receive purchased in-app items quickly, as well as track transactions and fulfillment.

About Mobile Ads

The Amazon Mobile Ads API is an in-app display advertising solution to monetize mobile apps and games across platforms, including phones and tablets on Android, iOS, and Fire. With the Amazon Mobile Ad Network, you have the opportunity to earn more and you are paid on ad impressions served instead of clicks on ads.

About the Amazon WebView API

By targeting the Amazon Fire OS platform, Cordova developers can create hybrid web apps that take advantage of the advanced web engine integrated into Fire devices.

Amazon WebView API (AWV) is a Chromium-derived web runtime exclusive to Fire OS. A drop-in replacement for the WebView that comes with Android devices, AWV makes it possible to create better performing and more powerful hybrid web apps by providing support for a faster JavaScript engine (V8), remote debugging, and hardware optimizations for Fire devices including an accelerated 2D Canvas, and access to HTML5 features not supported by Android’s built in WebView such as: CSS Calc, Form Validation, getUserMedia, IndexedDB, Web Workers, WebSockets and WebGL. 

Amazon Fire TV, including both the Fire TV and Fire TV Stick, now support HTML5 web apps using the Amazon WebView. The Web App Starter Kit for Fire TV is a new open source project intended to help Cordova developers get up to speed quickly to creating a simple media-oriented app for this exciting new web platform. Features of the project include an example user interface designed for the 10 foot user experience, support for the Fire TV remote control, and sample components developers can include in their Cordova project to create a robust media app using HTML5 technologies. You can find this project on its GitHub project page here: https://github.com/amzn/web-app-starter-kit-for-fire-tv.

AWV also supports the new Fire phone, enabling Cordova developers to build applications that take advantage of the innovative new Dynamic Perspective user interface, app widgets and one-handed shortcuts like tilt and peek. The documentation, sample code and plugins to utilize the Fire phone features are available as part of the Amazon WebView API SDK.

For more information about the Amazon WebView API, please see the HTML5 Hybrid Apps page, or go to the official Cordova Amazon Fire OS Platform Guide.
