Amazon Kindle Fire Apps

amazon.gifIf you have an existing Android app that you would like to submit to Amazon for running on the Fire then you should take a look at Amazon’s very recently published developer portal FAQ. Here are the most important points of relevance to many existing apps…

"At a high level, it must be optimized for non-Google Mobile Services (GMS) Android 2.3.4 (Gingerbread) and a 7" screen with a resolution of 1024 x 600. Your app cannot require a gyroscope, camera, WAN module, Bluetooth, microphone, GPS, or micro-SD to function."

The Kindle Fire ships on November 15 so you need to submit your app as soon as possible to ensure it is available when the device ships.
