Amazon Mobile Associates API Needs Work

I have tried for several days to get this to work. I wanted to include relevant products for sale in my app. But there are limited examples of how to get the "In-App Product Detail" to work. Plus, the prerequisites for the ShoppingService.searchByID(..) and ShoppingService.search(..) methods are ridiculous. Your app is distributed through Amazon Amazon Appstore for Android is installed on the device User is logged in to Amazon Appstore for Android User's preferred marketplace is US You are an Internet based company. If you can ship products to the user's country AND the user's device has Internet capability, then why shouldn't the search work? I also tried to implement the product linking. But in order to query Amazon to get the product image and details, you have to use yet another API/SDK (the product advertising one). And that API/SDK has virtually no Android examples. It appears to be primarily focused on traditional websites. I guess I will have to forget about adding products to my app for the time being. Ping me if you get around to updating the API to make it more developer friendly. Thanks
