Apologies for missing the type of application that you mentioned in your message -- my reply was with an assumption that it's an Android app. Regrettably, at the moment, web apps are compatible only with Kindle Fire and Fire TV devices (but not any other devices). While this might change in the future, I would encourage you to submit your app as a proper Android app. If you (or your developers) are familiar with Android development, you can build and submit an Android .apk file instead of just the URL. The Android app will be an empty shell with a single WebView in the launch activity that will load your URL. Alternatively, you can use Cordova to achieve the same result and get an .apk file on the output. With this setup you will be able to control much more, including values in your manifest, subsequent versions/udates, other features such as Live App Testing, etc. It's easy too, have a look at the following article, specifically the 'Building Web Apps in WebView' section, which can guide you step-by-step:
Hi alainit, Thanks for posting! Yes, it is possible to download it to other Android devices if you selected that option when publishing your app. Go to the 'Binary File(s)' tab, and in the 'Device Support' section check 'Non-Amazon Android Devices' and make sure that all compatible devices are selected. Also when you scroll to the very bottom of that device list, there will be an extra option saying 'All other Android devices - Includes all other non-Amazon Android devices not listed above' -- make sure it's selected as well. After your app is approved, you should be able to download it to other Android devices as well (assuming your app is compatible) via the Amazon Appstore / Amazon Underground app.
