Linking to Amazon Client

Now that the Amazon Appstore is live on the . co.uk site I was hoping we would be able to link to it in the same way that the US site does. I tried replacing the .com with . co.uk in the following address but it does not work. http://www.amazon.com/gp/mas/dl/android?p=com.amazon.mp3 It would be great if the same redirecting code was added to the . co.uk site.

Hi Darvds, Thank you for your post. Could you please clarify your case a little? This is true if you try to launch http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/mas/dl/android?p=com.amazon.mp3 in browser, it wont work since deep linking is not activated in amazon sites other than .com. But, the forum subject you have given as "Linking to Amazon Client". What does this "client" mean? Are you talking about Amazon App Store Client? If your device is registered with Amazon UK account and you are doing this from your app, context.startActivity(new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, Uri.parse("amzn://apps/android?p=com.amazon.mp3"))); This works. How you are trying to link a http url by using Amazon client? We have asked the concerned team about the plan of activation of deep linking in . co.uk retail web site. I will post back once I receive response form them. Mean while could you please clarify your query? Thanks.

Ah yes, I mean linking to the site from another website on desktop, not on the device. From the device it is working perfectly. Sorry, by 'Linking to the Amazon Client' I just meant that's what the page in the SDK documentation calls it: https://developer.amazon.com/sdk/in-app-purchasing/sample-code/deeplink.html. What I meant was linking to the retail website.

Hi Darvds, Thank you for the response and bringing the matter in to our notice. This is actually a backlog, not an issue, which is not implemented yet. We have plan to fix it soon. I can not commit the date when deep linking would be available for the countries other than US. Please stay tuned with our blog or announcement for future update.
