Does IAP support Android 2.2?

Hello, We can’t install the Amazon SDK test client on any 2.2 devices. Does this mean that Amazon IAP does not support Android 2.2? Regards, Pablo.

Is this the appropriate line to place in the manifest to enforce this requirement: Thank you.

Hi, yes that is the appropriate line to enter in Manifest file to ensure that your app supports minimum SDK version.

So if I understand this correctly, this means that because Amazon requires us to run on Android 2.2 or less for Free App Of The Day qualification, that anyone actually running 2.2 or less will not be able to make in-app purchases? That makes absolutely no sense. If your monitization solution is not going to support 2.2, how can you require apps to be 2.2 or less for FAOTD?

Hi, Any app can be nominated for inclusion in Free App of the Day program. Amazon Apps currently supports Android devices running Android OS 2.2 and higher. If you’d like to nominate your app for inclusion in the Free App of the Day program, locate the app within the Distribution Portal, and on the Availability & Pricing tab, find the Free App of the Day (FAD) eligibility option at the bottom of the page, select the “Yes, please consider this app for the program” check box. You can find more information on FAD at the following blog http://www.amazonappstoredev.com/2011/06/submitting-your-app-for-fad-consideration.html

"Any app can be nominated for inclusion in Free App of the Day program. Amazon Apps currently supports Android devices running Android OS 2.2 and higher." That hasn’t been our experience. Our previous games ran on 2.3.3 and higher and had always been rejected by Amazon for Free App of the Day expressly because they didn’t run on 2.2. Has that policy now changed? We just went to great lengths to make certain our new games run on 2.2, so we could be included in the FAD promotion. If possible, it would be greatly appreciated if you could confirm with the person that makes the final FAD determination that games running only on 2.3.3 and higher can be accepted as a Free App of the Day. Thank you very much!

There can be multiple reasons for an app to become ineligible for FAD. Please raise a ContactUs ( https://developer.amazon.com/help/contactus.html) with us with your app details and one of our engineers will be able to help you.
