Amazon App Store linking to all your apps stopped working…

by peterdk on December 19th, 2012

According to the docs about Amazon’s Appstore, linking to your app is quite easy. An example for a link to a package is:

Intent i = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW);
i.setData(Uri.parse(“http://www.amazon.com/gp/mas/dl/android?p=” + packageName));

However, the docs also state that you can link to all your apps by adding a parameter to the url.

i.setData(Uri.parse(“http://www.amazon.com/gp/mas/dl/android?p=” + packageName+”&showAll=1“));

This used to work, and I used it to link my Amazon users to all my apps.

However, I was debugging my app and today I suddenly found that this all apps linking doesn’t work anymore on my Kindle Fire. I also downloaded the latest amazon appstore to my emulator, and it also didn’t work there. So, somehow a update of the store app apparently has a regression in it. I doubt it’s intentional.
