Amazon now has a beta release for their Android Mobile App SDK Eclipse Plugin.
There are about 42 Amazon APIs in APIhub and by searching for them you can get an idea of the many amazon services you'll be able to harness if you're an Android developer.  Here were some more details Amazon gave about the plugin:

  • Free to use: As with other resources we make available, the plugin is free for developers distributing their apps on Amazon.
  • Easy to use: Developers have indicated that it is surprisingly fast to deploy and use the plugin. The deployment of this tool follows the typical Eclipse plugin download and installation experience and does not require a new usage paradigm.
  • Gives you control of APIs and versions: The plugin allows you to use the latest version of the APIs in the Amazon Mobile App SDK that you have on your system and will alert you if your project is using an older version of the APIs.
  • Works for all apps and games: The plugin helps you to quickly develop any Android app that you plan to offer via the Amazon marketplace, including Kindle Fire tablets and Android smartphones.


The download can be found here, and after you've given it a test drive, you can fill out a brief survey to give the developers feedback.

The State of API Integration Report provides data from the Cloud Elements platform and will help all developers navigate the recent explosion of APIs and the implications of API integrations to work more efficiently in 2017 and beyond.
