I've searched the forum, but most answers are pre 2015. Does anyone know if you can test apps/publish to the Amazon store ? i'm considering buying an Kindle Fire as a test device for Android development. Is this a bad idea? can someone suggest a good Android tablet to test against for android releases?  I dont need in app purchases (which i know could be an issue in the amazon market place)

I have published to amazon app store before with apk from stencyl.. fire should be fine to test on, not sure how it compares or its limitations vs say a samsung tab or equvillant... amazon doesnt like others inapp processes and want their own implemented if i remember correctly

Thanks Squeeb. I've read somewhere that the Fire has 69% of the Android tablet market share in the US, so it seed like a no brainer to test and launch on it if it worked with Stencyl.

No problem.
 Something i thought of.. check and make sure the specs and features.. gps, accelometer gyro ect are on the model you select.. the fire hd or newer should be best
