About Amazon Fling
The Amazon Fling SDK is a cross-platform toolkit that enables mobile developers to build rich multi-screen experiences with Amazon Fire TV. The SDK allows sending video, audio and images from iOS, Android or Fire OS mobile apps to Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. With our SDK, you can “fling” media content to Amazon Fire TV and leverage two-way communication between Amazon Fire TV and mobile apps to create engaging second screen experiences.
The GameCircle experience and Whispersync for Games are now available for all Android devices, Fire tablets and Fire TV. These services are free to use and provide everything you need to implement achievements, leaderboards, and saved game syncing across multiple devices. Once you integrate GameCircle, customers can seamlessly play games and interact with other gamers across mobile devices.
About Fire Phone
Fire phone, Amazon’s Android-based smartphone, allows you to reimagine your app and delight your customers through new groundbreaking experiences. Fire phone is available to customers in the US, UK and Germany. Fire apps can take advantage of the new Dynamic Perspective and Firefly SDKs — two new breakthrough technologies that allow customers to see and interact with the world through a whole new lens. You can also easily integrate existing Amazon APIs, including In-App Purchasing, Mobile Ads, and Mobile Associates.
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.
