Amazon already has a handful of branded devices on the market, including Kindle Fire TV and the Fire TV. Amazon Fire OS is an Android-based mobile operating system produced by Amazon for its Fire phone & Kindle Fire range of tablets and other devices like Fire TV. Fire OS App development is the next trend in app development.

List of Fire OS Devices:

  • Fire Phone
  • Amazon Fire TV ----> Fire TV Stick
  • Kindle Fire ----> Fire HD, Fire HDX

With the help of Android open source platform by sharing many of its APIs and kernels, Fire OS can run most of the Android applications with the little amount of modification or even without any modification.

Fire OS is compatible with Android and HTML5, claiming that 75% of Android tablets will run on Fire OS with no additional development work. Like most of the smartphone platforms, it too has a dedicated app store known as “Amazon Appstore for Android”. Thus, porting an existing Android app to Kindle Fire is a wise decision for both, business and developer’s point of view.

Build: It offers rich and immersive app experiences to delight your users. With Amazon Fling SDK, you can build rich multi-screen experiences with Amazon Fire TV. The Amazon Drive API and SDKs for Android and iOS enable you to personalize your utility, content creation, photo editing, or print app by providing direct access to your users’ Amazon Drive content.

Test: From drag-and-drop submission testing to simulated devices, get the tools you need to build apps and games better and faster. You can test your app for compatibility before submitting it to the Amazon Appstore using our App Testing Service and quickly distribute your app on the Amazon Appstore to a predefined set of testers using Live App Testing.
