    This may be a dumb question, but does the Kindle Fire fall under the Android device list for tracking? I know it's not the same as Android phones, but runs Android apps.

    If it runs on the Android operating system then it can be submitted under the Android list.

    I was pretty sure it would be acceptable. Just wanted to be sure, due to it having a customized Android OS not available an Android phones.

    Plus playing on phones is getting harder and harder each year , so playing the Fire on TV is much easier.

    Thank you replying!

    You're quite welcome but I hope someone can verify what I'm saying is true. I mean, I'm 99% sure that if it's an Android OS then where else would you submit it? iOS is it's own thing too so I think I'm making an educated assumption.

    This goes all over the place but the theme is android so seems reasonable.
    If you browse all the tablets at Walmart on any given day the flavor of android is also all over the place.
    Since development is so hot and changing rapidly it probably should be generic platform???
    Like mame is same for ios or pc.

    When you submit your APK into the Amazon Appstore, the attributes in your app manifest and build.gradle files determine what devices your app can be installed on. Incompatibilities between these files and a device's capabilities will prevent your APK file from being supported on that device. The sections that follow explain some of the filters that influence support for devices. You can also manually adjust the list of supported devices in the developer console.

    Because Amazon's Fire OS is based on Android, Amazon tries to maintain as much parity with Android as possible. Because of this, the documentation here doesn't duplicate the information in the Android documentation; instead, it covers how Amazon and Fire OS differ. For a better understanding of the concepts here, consult these foundational Android documentation topics.

    I haven't installed any apps on my Kindle Fire in a while (mainly I just use it for movies and Kindle books), but Facebook and a lot of other common apps are available directly from Amazon's app store. Shouldn't be required to sideload anything to get the basic ones, at least the ones not owned by Google (since Google and Amazon don't play nicely).
