I have an HTML5 WebApp (with IAP) ready for LAT but there is no LAT submission option on the 'Mobile Web' Platform. Do I need to submit a New App via the 'Android/Kindle' Platform (for which I can see a LAT option) ? Also I don't understand what differences an end user would experience when running my WebApp via the 'Mobile Web' Platform vs the 'Android/Kindle' Platform - could someone please explain difference (eg. does the user's IAP experience vary ?) Also, when testing IAP, in the .js file I use this code to initiate the API: amzn_wa.enableApiTester(amzn_wa_tester); What code do I use for the Live App: amzn_wa.enableApi(amzn_wa); or do I just delete this line of code ?
Thankyou DougM - I am now clear about the code to use for the production app. However I am not so clear about your APK comments. Currently I can produce an APK via: Apps & Services -> My Apps -> select the Mobile Web App -> Debug Packages -> hit the '(download) Debug Package' button which produces an APK file - which I had then submitted via the 'Submit App' button. I have 'Current Version (Live)' showing on my dashboard & can search for my app through the Amazon App Store & install it & run it on my mobile device (although I must admit I didn't intend for that to happen until I had finished testing IAP in a live environment). In any case this installed app still seems to run on the SDK tester as the user ID returned from my installed app is same as the SDK user ID. So I guess I have 2 questions: 1. What is the best method for getting my web app into the App Store (if not via the method described above) whilst ensuring that IAP runs in a production environment (i.e. not via SDK tester - I have done all necessary SDK testing) ?, and ... 2. Without using plugins, can I effectively only finalise IAP testing for a Web App once in full production mode (I'm happy to do that if that is what it takes) ? I am happy for you to point me to existing resource in answer to Q 1. - but I have found existing documentation on Web App submission rather confusing. Many thanks Surver
Hello Surver, We would not support doing that. It doesn't mean that it wouldn't work, but since that is not a standard app submission workflow for web apps, we would not be able to guarantee the behavior of what would happen as a result of that app submission.
OK - I hear what you are saying - but I thought the process I described WAS standard app submission process. So I return to my 2 queries: (a) what is the standard app submission process ? & (b) what IAP testing option is available, if any, in a production environment OR can I only test IAP once in production ? many thanks Surver
Well, generally for web apps it really is just submitting the URL or Zip file and walking through the steps to submit it. Doing anything with the debug APK aside from sideloading it on a device would be considered not standard in this case.
