Differences from Play Store API

Our goal is to make the app submission API simple and easy to use. If you have implemented the submission API for the Google Play store, you need to make only a few changes to be compatible with the Amazon Appstore app submission API.

Feature Differences

Feature Google Play API App Submission API Comments
Edit sync between
API and Console
N/A Yes When you update the open Edit using the API, these updates are visible in the Developer Console.
Device Targeting N/A Yes Selecting the types of devices that can use this app.
HTTP PATCH Yes No You use PATCH to make partial updates to an entity (PUT updates the entire entity).
LAT (Live App Testing) Yes No You cannot use the API to create or update the LAT version of your app.

Comparison of API Resource Types

For comparison purposes, see the Play Store API Edits reference.

The API methods use the following resources in the requests and responses.

Resource Play Store API App Submission API Comments
Edits { "id": string, "expiryTimeSeconds": string } { "id": string } Amazon Edits do not expire
Edits.details { "defaultLanguage": string, "contactWebsite": string, "contactEmail": string, "contactPhone": string } Same fields as Play Store API No differences
Edits.listings { "language": string, "title": string, "fullDescription": string, "shortDescription": string, "video": string } { "language": string, "title": string, "fullDescription": string, "shortDescription": string, "videos": string[] } Appstore parameter is a list of videos.
Edits.images { "images": [ { "id": string, "url": string, "sha1": string } ] } { "images": [ { "id": string } ] Appstore does not use url or sha1 parameter
Edits.apks { "versionCode": integer, "binary": { "sha1": string, "sha256": string } } { "versionCode": integer, "binary": { "id": string, "name": string } Appstore has no sha1 or sha256 fields, and adds two new fields.
Edits.targeting n/a { targeting: { [ "device": string, "status": string ] } } New endpoint for Appstore

Play Store API supports additional resources (such as testers and tracks) that the Appstore currently does not support.
