Publishing Android Apps to the Amazon Appstore

Overview

This document explains how to publish apps for Fire tablets and other Android-based devices to the Amazon Appstore. Note: you cannot publish iOS apps to the Appstore.

Important: In some circumstances, you must associate your app with a security profile before submitting it to the Amazon Appstore. See the instructions in the section titled If Your App Uses GameCircle or Amazon Device Messaging APIs: Associate Your App with a Security Profile.

Test Your App

Before submitting your app to the Amazon Appstore, you should use Live App Testing to test your app in a production environment. With Live App Testing you can distribute your app to up to 500 testers worldwide, except in China. Follow the instructions in Getting Started to set up your test.

On submission, Amazon wraps your app with additional code that enables the app to communicate with the Amazon Appstore client to collect analytics, evaluate and enforce our program policies, share aggregated information with you and others regarding the program, and for other purposes. You can use Live App Testing to see how this additional code will impact the behavior of your app.

Additionally, Amazon removes the signature you used to sign your app and re-signs it with an Amazon signature that is unique to you, does not change, and is the same for all apps in your account. You can request the following Amazon signature hashes for your account by using Contact Us:

  • MD5
  • SHA1
  • SHA256
  • Public key exponent
  • Public key modulus
  • Facebook hash

Prepare to Publish Your App

The Amazon Appstore enables you to publish your Android app to millions of registered Amazon customers.

High-Level Review of Prerequisites

Publishing to the Amazon Appstore requires the following:

  • An Amazon customer account and an Amazon developer account

    If you do not have an Amazon customer account, create one at Amazon.com. If you do not have an Amazon developer account, go to the Amazon Apps & Games Developer Portal and sign in with the same email address as your Amazon customer account. The portal will guide you through the account creation process.

  • An app for Android devices that you want to make available to millions of Amazon customers

    Each app that you submit must comply with our content policy. If Amazon determines that an app contains, facilitates, or promotes content prohibited by these guidelines, we will reject the submission. For more information about the content policy, see the Approval Process and Content Guidelines section of the developer FAQs.

  • Image assets for product promotion

    You must provide screenshots and large and small icons for promoting your app on the Amazon Appstore. You may optionally provide a promotional image and videos.

  • General Tips

    Use the following information to make your publishing experience as smooth as possible.

    Accounts and Correspondence

    • Your Amazon customer account is tied to your Amazon developer account. Any changes you make to the sign in credentials of your Amazon customer account are propagated to your Amazon developer account, and vice versa.
    • Amazon will only send email to the address listed in the company profile when corresponding with you about your app's status. When you set up a new Amazon Apps & Games Developer Portal account, you are the default account administrator. You can add other people in other roles to the account, such as analyst, developer, or marketer. You can also add other administrators. Although any developer or administrator can submit an app, Amazon will send correspondence only to the email address in the company profile. Amazon will not send messages to the email account associated with the person who submitted the app, unless that person's email address is the email address in the company profile. To see which email address is listed, an administrator can check the Company Profile on the Settings tab.

    App Preparation

    • android:versionName requirements differ from the Android specification. In most Android applications, the android:versionName in AndroidManifest.xml can be any string. To submit an app to the Amazon Appstore, the android:versionName must consist of up to five integers separated by periods (.), for example x.x.x.x.x where x represents an integer. Examples of valid android:versionName strings include 11.0, and 12.90.34.78.56. Examples of invalid android:versionName strings include 1a1.2beta, and 4.32 with Chinese characters.
    • android:versionCode must increase for each successive version of your app. As per the Android documentation on <manifest>, the android:versionCode in AndroidManifest.xml must be an integer whose value increases each time a new version of your app is released. If your app's android:versionCode does not follow this convention, customers will not receive the new version of your app.
    • Each app's package name must be unique. The package name of each app that you submit to Amazon must be different from the package name used in any other app.

    Updating an App

    • Update your existing app rather than create a new app when your app is updated with new features. If you already have an app live on the Amazon Appstore and want to update it, you should submit an app update rather than create a new app in the Amazon Apps & Games Developer Portal with the same name. This will enable you to retain customer ratings and download statistics across versions, and will enable your customers to receive app updates. Instructions for updating an existing app are in the section titled Updating an Existing App at the end of this document.

Add Metadata and Image Assets

To begin the submission process, sign in to your account on the Amazon Apps & Games Developer Portal. Once you sign in, you are on the dashboard page. Scroll down to the section titled Dashboard to see a list of existing apps, if any, that you have created.

If you have already created an app and have a new version of that app that you would like to submit, you should submit an update to your existing app instead of creating a new app. Instructions for updating an existing app are in the section titled Updating An Existing App at the end of this document.

To create a new app, at the bottom of the dashboard click the Add a New App button and then select Android. The portal displays a page where you must enter basic information about your app.

Important: When creating a new app for submission, you must enter information on six tabbed pages. When all required information on a tab has been completed, a green check mark will appear next to the tab's title. All tabs must have a green check mark before you can submit your app. The Amazon Apps & Games Developer Portal does not enable the button to submit your app until all six tabs have green check marks.

Important: All text input fields are plain text only. Do not enter HTML markup. If you enter HTML markup in any field, your app will fail Amazon testing and publishing will be delayed.

For Android apps, the following information is requested:

  • App title (required): Enter your app's title. Amazon customers see this information in the Appstore and in certain locations on Fire tablets and other Android devices.
  • App SKU (optional): Amazon does not require or use the app SKU. However, adding a unique identifier can help you track multiple versions of your app.
  • Category (required): Select an app type and subtype by using the pull-down menus. This information helps customers find apps like yours.
  • Customer support contact (optional): If you have configured a customer support email address, phone number, and website in your profile, you can optionally select the Use my default support information checkbox to copy that information. If you do not select the checkbox to copy the default information, you must enter an email address, phone number, and website in the following text fields.
  • Customer Support email address (required): Enter an email address where customers can contact you.
  • Customer Support phone (required): Enter a phone number where customers can contact you.
  • Customer Support website (required): Enter the URL for your app's support website.
  • Privacy policy URL (optional): If your app includes account creation or otherwise collects personal information from users, you must enter an URL for your app’s privacy policy.

When you are ready, click Save. The General Information tab opens.

General Information Tab

The portal populates the General Information tab with the information you supplied on the previous screen. If you need to make changes, click the Edit button. You can make changes at any time before you submit your app.

Click the Availability & Pricing tab.

Availability & Pricing Tab

Use this tab to tell Amazon where to sell your app and what the list price for the app is (if you choose to charge for your app).

Fill out the following fields:

  • Where would you like this app to be available? The default is In all countries where Amazon sells apps (which covers almost 200 countries).

    If your app is region-specific, select the radio button for Only in the following countries..., and then use the region expanders and country lists to select the specific countries where you want your app to be available.

    Important: If you select one or more specific countries in which you would like to make your app available and you do not live in one of the selected countries, you may not be able to download your app from the Amazon Appstore once it becomes live.

  • Are you charging for this app? The default is No, this is a free app.

    If you want to charge money for your app, select the radio button for Yes, my base list price is... and fill in the following information:

    1. Enter your base list price in the text field and then select a currency from the pull-down menu. For example, you could enter 2.99 in the text field and select United States Dollar from the pull-down menu to set the base list price at $2.99 (USD).

      The minimum base list prices are as follows:

      • Australian dollar (AUD): $0.99
      • Brazilian real (BRL): R$1.99
      • Canadian dollar (CAD): $0.99
      • Euro (EUR): €0.69
      • Japanese yen (JPY): ¥85
      • Pound sterling (GBP): £0.59
      • United States dollar (USD): $0.99
    2. By default, Calculate list prices for me is selected, and Amazon will calculate the list price for your app in different geographies based on the list price that you provide for the U.S. marketplace.  If you want to set your own list prices, select the radio button for I’ll set my own list prices and enter new values as necessary. If you select I’ll set my own list prices, you must enter values in all of the currency fields.

    Important: If you charge money for your app, or your app includes in-app purchasing, or you use Amazon Mobile Ads or Amazon Mobile Associates, you must fill out payment, banking, and tax information in your developer profile.

  • Has this app already been released? Use this field to tell Amazon if you have already released your app on Google Play, Apple App Store, or elsewhere. The default value is No. If you have released your app elsewhere, type in the name of the store and then use the calendar control to indicate when it was first published.
  • When would you like this app to be available on Amazon? The default is to leave this field blank, which enables Amazon to sell your app as soon as it has passed testing. If you want to control the release date for your app so that, for example, you can release on the same date as on other app stores, use the calendar control to select an availability date. In addition to providing a date, you can also specify a time that the publishing process, which takes at least one hour, should begin. The time does NOT specify when your app will be live and available for customers. If you need to change this date at a later time, please file a request via Contact Us.
  • Free App of the Day (FAD) eligibility If the checkbox labeled Yes, please consider this app for the program is checked (this is the default), Amazon may select your app for this promotional program. If Amazon selects your app for FAD, Amazon will contact you with more details about what to expect as your app goes through the testing and approval process.

When you are ready, click Save. Amazon will check all fields on the tab to confirm that the required fields are complete. If so, a green check mark will appear on the Availability & Pricing tab to indicate that you can continue to the next tab.

Click the Description tab.

Description Tab

Use this tab to describe your app by filling out the following fields:

  • Language (required): All apps except those originating in China require an English (U.S.) translation.
  • Display Title (required): The display title should be brief and does not have to be the same as the App Title field on the General Information tab.
  • Short description (required): Enter a short description of your app that is appropriate for mobile devices. The maximum length is 1,200 characters, but Amazon recommends a much shorter description.
  • Long description (required): Enter a description of your app that is appropriate for use on the Amazon Appstore. The maximum length is 4,000 characters.
  • Product feature bullets (required): Enter three to five key features of your app, one per line. Amazon will add the bullets for you.
  • Keywords (optional): Enter comma-separated search terms that will help customers find your app in the Amazon Appstore.

To provide Amazon with translated versions of your app’s title, descriptions, product features, and keywords, click Save and Add a Translation. Available languages other than English (U.S.) are English (Australian), English (U.K.), French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese (Brazil), and Spanish. If you do not have any translations to enter, click Save.

Translations

For each language for which you have a translation, fill out the following fields:

  • Language (required): Select a language from the pull-down menu.
  • Display Title (required): The display title should be brief.
  • Short description (required): Enter a short description of your app that is appropriate for mobile devices. The maximum length is 1,200 characters, but Amazon recommends a much shorter description.
  • Long description (optional): Enter a description of your app that is appropriate for use on the Amazon Appstore. The maximum length is 4,000 characters.
  • Product feature bullets (optional): Enter three to five key features of your app, one per line. Amazon will add bullets for you.
  • Keywords (optional): Enter comma-separated search terms that will help customers find your app on Amazon.com.

After entering the translation information, click Save and Add a Translation to add an additional translation, or click Save if you do not have any more translations to add.

When you click Save, Amazon will check all fields on the tab to ensure the required fields are complete. If so, a green check mark will appear on the Description tab to indicate that you can continue to the next tab.

Click the Images & Multimedia tab.

Images & Multimedia Tab

Use this tab to upload product icons and screenshots, a promotional image, and one or more product videos. Amazon uses these to promote your app.

Upload the following assets:

  • Small icon (required): A representative icon for display within the Amazon Apps & Games Developer Portal. The PNG file should be 114px × 114px with a transparent background.
  • Large icon (required): This image is scaled and used extensively throughout the Amazon Appstore and on Amazon devices, so it should be of the highest possible quality. The PNG file should be 512px × 512px with a transparent background.
  • Screenshots (required): A minimum of three and a maximum of 10 app screenshots for use on Amazon product detail pages. These must be PNG or JPEG files, landscape or portrait mode. Depending on the devices you are targeting, allowable image sizes are:
    • 800px × 480px
    • 1024px × 600px
    • 1280px × 720px
    • 1280px × 800px
    • 1920px × 1200px
    • 2560px × 1600px
    In order to qualify for the Appstore Developer Select promotional program, the minimum size of the screenshots is 1280px × 720px.
  • Promotional Image (optional): A PNG or JPEG file in landscape orientation, 1024px × 500px for use in promotional placements. This image should not be a screenshot, but an attractive representation of your app that includes your app’s name. It must be easily read in a scaled-down version.
  • Video (optional): Up to five videos related to your app. Amazon will embed the videos, so it is important that you meet the specifications listed here:
    • 720px–1080px wide (4:3 or 16:9)
    • 1200 kbps or higher
    • MPEG-2, WMV, QuickTime, FLV, AVI, H.264 MPEG-4

    Note: If the file size of a single video is greater than 150MB, you must upload the video or videos via SFTP. On the tab, click SFTP instructions and naming convention for details.

Important: There are three versions of the app's icon: the standard Android icon referenced from within the app's manifest (android:icon="@drawable/icon_name"), the uploaded 114px × 114px PNG version, and the uploaded 512px × 512px PNG version. The standard Android icon is used by non-Amazon devices. Amazon devices, such as Fire tablets, and the Amazon Appstore use a scaled version of the uploaded 512px × 512px PNG. The uploaded 114px × 114px PNG is only used within the portal and is not used on any devices. Because the 512px × 512px icon is scaled and used in many places, it should be of the highest possible resolution and quality.

When you are ready, click Save. Amazon will check all fields on the tab to confirm that the required fields are complete. If so, a green check mark will appear on the Images & Multimedia tab to indicate that you can continue to the next tab.

Click the Content Rating tab.

Content Rating Tab

Use this tab to define a content rating for your app. It is vital that you provide the correct ratings for your app. Amazon uses these ratings to target your app to appropriate audiences. An incorrect description could result in your app failing during the submission and testing process, or in Amazon pulling your app from the Appstore after it has been published.

  • For each of the listed categories, select the radio button in the column that best describes how often your app makes use of or refers to the listed item. Light to moderate means the item occurs once or rarely and is not fundamental to the overall purpose and/or intent of the app. Strong means the item occurs regularly and is fundamental to the overall purpose and/or intent of the app.
  • In the This app also contains... area, select the check box for each element contained in your app. Making the appropriate selections here will shorten your app’s review period:
    • Account creation or other personal information collection
    • Advertisements
    • Gambling
    • Location detection or Location Based Services
    • User Generated Content or User to User Communication

When you are ready, click Save. Amazon will check all fields on the tab to ensure the required fields are complete. If so, a green check mark will appear on the Content Rating tab to indicate that you can continue to the next step.

If Your App Uses GameCircle or Amazon Device Messaging APIs: Associate Your App with a Security Profile

If your app uses either GameCircle or Amazon Device Messaging features, you must associate your app with a security profile before submitting it to the Amazon Appstore. If you use these APIs and do not associate your app with a security profile before submitting the app to Amazon, your app will fail on launch during the testing process, which will delay its approval.

Important: If your app does not use the GameCircle or Amazon Device Messaging APIs, skip this section and go to Add Binary Files.

Associating Your App with a Security Profile

To associate your app with a security profile, follow these steps:

  1. On the General Information tab for your Android app, in the row of links beneath the app's title, click the Security Profile link.
  2. On the Security Profile page, select the radio button of the security profile that you want to apply to your app. (You should have already created a security profile as part of testing your GameCircle or Amazon Device Messaging integration.) An Attention dialog box pops up with the following message: Applying a security profile to an app cannot be undone. Are you sure you want to apply this Security Profile? If you are sure you want to apply the selected security profile to your app, click Apply Profile.
  3. On the Security Profile page a confirmation message states, “<App name> is associated with the <security profile name> security profile.” Your app is now successfully associated with a security profile.

Add Binary Files

Regardless of whether or not you needed to associate your app with a security profile, you can now export a signed APK file for uploading to the Amazon Appstore. Once you have exported a signed APK, navigate back to your app's Binary File(s) tab by clicking Current Version (Incomplete), which is below your app's title near the top of the page.

Next, click the Binary File(s) tab.

Binary File(s) Tab

Use this tab to set permission and device support options, and to upload your APK file to the Amazon Appstore.

  • Apply Amazon DRM? (required): Regardless of whether you choose to apply Amazon DRM, Amazon wraps your app with additional code that enables the app to communicate with the Amazon Appstore client to collect analytics, evaluate and enforce our program policies, and share aggregated information with you and others regarding the program, as well as for other purposes. When your app starts, it communicates with the Amazon Appstore client to determine whether the current user is entitled to use your app. If you select the Yes (Recommended) radio button, DRM is enabled and your app will only run if the signed in user has an entitlement to your app. If you select the No radio button, DRM is not enabled and the app will run no matter who is signed in. Your app will always communicate with the Amazon Appstore client when it starts, even if you choose not to apply DRM.

    Amazon DRM is not tied to the key you used to sign your app. Amazon removes your signature and re-signs your app with an Amazon signature that is unique to you, does not change, and is the same for all apps in your account.

  • Binary file (required): Drag and drop your app's binary (APK) file onto the Upload Binary box. Alternatively, you can click the words Upload Binary and use your operating system's file selection mechanism to find and select the APK file to upload.

    If your binary file is larger than 150MB, click SFTP instructions and naming convention. Use your FTP client to upload your files with the given credentials. Before uploading, confirm that you have renamed any assets larger than 150MB per the instructions on the page.

    After Amazon's next publish cycle (about every 30 to 90 minutes), you should receive an email from Amazon indicating that your binary was uploaded correctly.

    When you return to the Binary File(s) tab, you should see your file.

  • Device Support (required): In order to indicate which devices your binary is compatible with, you must first upload an APK.

    By default, device support is turned on for all Amazon Fire Phone and Fire Tablet devices, and all non-Amazon Android devices, including BlackBerry 10 devices. However, you must explicitly turn on support for Amazon Fire TV devices. If you turn on support for a Fire TV device, you must also indicate which types of controllers are supported.

    Amazon Fire Phones, Fire Tablets and Fire TV devices

    To edit the list of supported Amazon devices, follow these steps:

    1. Click the Edit device support link next to the category of devices you wish to edit. A modal dialog opens, showing a list of devices from which you can choose.

    2. Choose which devices to support. To support a device, ensure the square on/off switch is positioned to the right side of the control and the control background is green. To turn off support for a device, ensure the square on/off switch is positioned to the left side of the control and the control background is light gray. Click the control to toggle between on and off.

    3. To move between device categories, click the tabs at the top of the modal dialog.

    4. Once you are ready to save your selections, click the OK button at the bottom of the modal dialog. If you need to discard your selections and return to the main screen, click the Cancel button at the bottom of the modal dialog.

    Note: No two APKs can target the same device type. If you are providing multiple binaries, the devices selected here will be unavailable for subsequent APKs.

    Non-Amazon Android devices

    You can use the Device Support options in the Binary File(s) tab to see which devices are compatible with your app, and if your app manifest settings have filtered out any devices. If necessary, you can manually filter out Android devices that have known compatibility issues, without having to re-submit a new APK file.

    To edit the list of supported devices, follow these steps:

    1. Use the Device Support Summary to review the total number of devices that are Supported (compatible), Excluded (manually de-selected) and Unsupported (incompatible based on your manifest settings).

    2. To change your device support settings, click the Edit device support link to open the Device Support dialog. If you want to limit your app’s availability to only a handful of non-Amazon devices, you can toggle-off the Enable non-Amazon devices control to initially exclude all devices before manually selecting devices for inclusion in to your compatibility list.

    3. Alternatively, at the bottom of the Device Support dialog, there is a setting for All other Android devices. This control is enabled by default. It allows your app to be distributed to any other compatible Android devices not explicitly listed. It also allows your app to be made available for newly released (future) Android devices that are compatible with your manifest.

    4. Once you are ready to save your selections, click the OK button at the bottom of the modal dialog. If you need to discard your selections and return to the main screen, click the Cancel button at the bottom of the modal dialog.

      Navigation Tips: the device summary drop-down at the top of the screen provides an overview of current device support. Clicking any of the links will filter the UI to show only the devices in the selected category. This is a quick and easy way of reviewing and editing your device support options. In addition, you can also use the Find a device search box to quickly find devices by manufacturer or model.

      Note: No two APKs can target the same device type. If you are providing multiple binaries, the devices selected here will be unavailable for subsequent APKs.

  • Language Support (required): Select the at least one language supported by your binary. Supporting your app with multiple languages is a strong driver of international sales. The default selection is English.

  • Export Compliance (required): You must accept the following export compliance statement by selecting the checkbox:

    I certify this App may be imported to and exported from the United States and all other countries in which we operate our program or in which you've authorized sales to end users (without the need for us to obtain any license or clearance or take any other action) and is in full compliance with all applicable laws and regulations governing imports and exports, including those applicable to software that makes use of encryption technology.

    Amazon requires this statement because, before we can sell your app, Amazon must know that every app you submit complies with applicable export and import regulations.

  • Binary Alias (required): Provide a unique name for your APK file. You may choose to use the provided default name. Amazon uses this name internally and it is not seen by customers.

    If you optimized your app for different devices and made use of multiple binaries, each binary must have a unique alias.

  • Testing instructions (optional): In most cases you will leave this field blank. However, if your app has difficult-to-discover features, you should include directions here for finding them. Also, if you need to resubmit your app based on feedback from Amazon, or if your app needs user credentials or other information for testing, you can use this field to respond to the test report emails you receive from Amazon.

If you optimized your app for different devices and made use of multiple binaries, use the Save and Add a Binary button to upload another APK file for this app. Amazon does not require you to optimize your app for different devices. For more information about Amazon’s multi-binary function, see Amazon Device Targeting.

When you are ready, click Save. Amazon will check all fields on the tab to confirm that the required fields are complete. If so, a green check mark will appear on the Binary File(s) tab. If all of the tabs have green check marks, you are ready to submit your app.

Submit Your App to Amazon

All tabs for your app should now have green check marks, and the Submit App button should be enabled. You can change the information on any tab until you submit your app. When you are ready, click Submit App.

The Approval Process

Before approving an app and making it live on the Amazon Appstore, Amazon verifies that it works as outlined in your product description, does not impair the functionality of the device on which it is running, does not put customer data at risk, and complies with the terms of the Amazon Program Materials License Agreement and the Content Guidelines section of the Amazon FAQs.

The following flowchart shows the app approval process:

After approving your app, Amazon sends an email to the address associated with your company profile. This email address may not be the same as your Amazon Apps & Games Developer Portal account address. Please see the note about this at the top of this page, under Accounts and Correspondence in the section titled Prepare to Publish Your App. If after waiting for six days your app is still in review, you can optionally use the Contact Us form to seek clarification.

Application Status

Your dashboard in the Amazon Apps & Games Developer Portal displays the status of every app that you submit to Amazon. The status messages have the following meanings:

  • Incomplete: You have not yet completed your app submission. The app is missing some of the fields required for submission to Amazon.
  • Ready to Submit: Your app is ready to be submitted to Amazon. You may change the metadata and binary until you click Submit App.
  • Submitted: You have submitted the app for review, and it can no longer be edited. At this time, you can cancel the request for review and continue to edit your app by clicking the Cancel review link.
  • Under Review: Amazon is reviewing the app. If you wish, you can choose to cancel app review and re-start the submission process.
  • Approved: The app has completed at least one stage of the testing and content review process and may soon be ready for publication. No changes can be made to the app while in this status. You must wait until the app is live before making changes.
  • Live: The app is now live on the store.
  • Pending: You will receive an email from our team explaining why the review process for your app was paused and asking you to perform some action. You must address the relevant metadata or binary issues before your app can successfully continue through the process.
  • Rejected: The app did not pass the review process. You will receive an email from Amazon explaining the reasons for the failed approval.
  • Suppressed: The app was live at one point but is no longer in the store.

Updating an Existing App

Once Amazon approves an app and makes it live on the Amazon Appstore, you can keep it up to date by submitting updated versions through the Amazon Apps & Games Developer Portal, without going through all of the steps needed to create a new app.

To update a live app, follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to the Amazon Apps & Games Developer Portal. Once signed in you are on the dashboard page.
  2. Scroll down to the Dashboard section to see a list of apps that you have created. Click the name of an app you wish to update.
  3. Near the top of the page, in the area below the name of your app, click Add Upcoming Version.
  4. A confirmation message will appear above the metadata tabs. Click OK to proceed.
  5. The portal creates a new set of metadata tabs for you. The General InformationAvailability & PricingDescriptionImages & Multimedia, and Content Rating tabs are marked with green checks mark to indicate that the required fields have been pre-filled with the information associated with the live version your app. If necessary, you may edit the information on those tabs.
  6. Fill out the fields of the Binary File(s) tab. The information needed is the same as if you were submitting a new app. Please refer to the Binary File(s) Tab section for further information. For information on updating device targeting for an existing app, see Using Device Targeting.

    Important: In order for your app to update properly for existing users, the value of android:versionCode in your app's manifest XML must be greater than that of the currently live version of your app.

    When you are ready, click Save. Amazon will check all fields on the tab to confirm that the required fields are complete. If so, a green check mark will appear on the Binary File(s) tab to indicate that you can continue to the the next tab.

  7. Click the Release Notes tab. A set of release notes is required for each translation defined on the Description tab.

    When you click Save, Amazon checks all fields on the tab to confirm that the required fields are complete. If so, a green check mark will appear on the Release Notes tab. If all of the tabs have green check marks, you are ready to submit the updated version of your app.

    All tabs for your app should now have green check marks, and the Submit App button should be enabled. You can change the information on any tab until you submit your app.
