We were just rejected from the amazon appstore due to the AIR url:
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
We published via Flash Pro CS5.5 with Amazon selected, and when you install that APK on the device without AIR installed you get prompted to get AIR. The 'Install' button gives you the intent menu for Web or Amazon, clicking amazon just takes you to the amazon appstore home page rather than directly to the AIR page.. How do we fix this?
Could you please check the URL for AIR in: "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Flash CS5.5\en_US\Configuration\Android\Markets.xml" and confirm that it is set to the following:
<market name="Amazon Appstore" url="http://www.amazon.com/gp/mas/dl/android?p=com.adobe.air"/>
Or, if you're willing to generate the .apk by hand, you can use the "adt" command line mentioned at: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/903573
This is the URL that's in that file: http://www.amazon.com/gp/mas/dl/android/com.adobe.air
You need to change the URL to: http://www.amazon.com/gp/mas/dl/android?p=com.adobe.air
It seems that the Amazon Appstore Android application can only parse this URL and not the one in your Markets.xml.
I did. This is from Amazon so I'm pretty sure it needs to be changed in
future versions of Flash Pro so others don't run into this problem. Anyone
that's using Flash Pro CS5.5 is going to have this same problem if
publishing from the IDE, maybe an update should be pushed out - or a sticky
should be made in these forums.
As of April 2012, I ran into the same problem (Using CS 5.5). Here's the message from Amazon:
Device Tested : Motorola Droid (2.3), HTC Evo (2.3.3),Samsung Galaxy Tablet(2.2)
