Here is the document for api simulator and i couldn't find how to run and build application. Document doesn't provide any needed information. If any can provide with screen shots that would be great and helpful. https://developer.amazon.com/public/solutions/devices/fire-phone/docs/using-the-api-simulator-tool Thanks Satish

Hi Satish, If you are just interested in determining if your current app runs on the FirePhone you can use the App Testing Service to receive a full report. Just drag your existing APK into the test box here: https://developer.amazon.com/public/solutions/devices/fire-phone#ATS Your app will be tested on an actual FirePhone and results, including screenshots, will be e-mailed to you in about an hour. If you are interested in integrating some of the new FirePhone features into your app, you will need to: 1- Setup your development environment. For the FirePhone this means Android Studio / Gradle build system and downloading the FirePhone SDK. https://developer.amazon.com/public/solutions/devices/fire-phone/docs/setup 2- Configure you app for the FirePhone, this means incorporating the libraries and features for the FirePhone. https://developer.amazon.com/public/solutions/devices/fire-phone/docs/configuring-your-app-for-fire-phone 3- Debug and fine tune your app with the help of the FirePhone sample apps. https://developer.amazon.com/public/solutions/devices/fire-phone/docs/viewing-sample-apps

Hi Satheesh, Unless you are integrating any of the Fire Phone SDK features, most Android applications targeted for an API 17 device will work with no changes at all (about 75% of all apps just work). The only other thing to keep in mind is that you cannot integrate any Google Play Services on any Fire devices (the Google Play client is not installed). We have provided a way for you test your app with our Drag & Drop App Testing Service. Just log into your Developer Portal account, drag your APK to the gray test block and your app will tested on an actual Fire Phone. We will e-mail a link to your rest results which will include screenshots, stacktraces for any failures, etc. You can use the link here: https://developer.amazon.com/public/resources/development-tools/app-testing-service You can find the Fire Phone specs here: https://developer.amazon.com/public/solutions/devices/fire-phone/docs/fire-phone-specifications
