Riddle me this. I already have my app on the Amazon app store, so I got submit an update and a lite version here is what I get back.
Your recent submission of Pop Goes The Bubble is pending due to the following reason(s):
The link to Adobe AIR in your app needs to be updated so that customers are taken directly to the Adobe AIR app page on the Amazon Appstore. -- The Download URL is http://www.amazon.com/gp/mas/dl/android?p=com.adobe.air
I don't understand this. When I publish out the app for Android the part where I get to choose where the plug in is downloaded from I check off Amazon App store instead of Android market, I thought they meant I need to put the link in my description and I did and resubmitted, still the same rejection message. Please help me out I don't understand how version 1.0 was submitted and approved and this update is submitted the same way is now getting pushed back. Am I missing something?
AIR developers can submit their apps to Amazon Appstore without any code modifications but they have to be published specifically for it. This means that two separate apk files will need to be created - for Android Market and for Amazon Appstore. By default ADT creates apps with download URL for Android Market and Amazon Appstore requires this URL to be changed to http://www.amazon.com/gp/mas/dl/android?p=com.adobe.air.
So if you are publishing to Amazon Appstore, the adt command should be as follows:

If you are using CS5.5, you can also modify C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Flash CS5.5\en_US\Configuration\Android\Markets.xml
and make sure the url points to:
<market name="Amazon Appstore" url="http://www.amazon.com/gp/mas/dl/android?p=com.adobe.air"/>
Be sure to close CS5.5 before doing so. Worked for me perfectly.
Thanks sigman, I should have mentioned that I am publishing out of Flash Cs5.5 and I use the simple publish method no command prompt for me.
Aster I tried your method and resubmitted to Amazon, Ill put up and update when it works out or doesnt. Thanks for your help guys.
