Kindle Fire App-Icon is super blurry

Hi,

I just noted that the Kindle Fire HD 7 shows app icons quite prominent in the center of the screen with a huge size, and our app icon appears SUPER blurry. The documentation states that the maximum icon size for android is 144x144, but sometimes the documentation isn't up to date. So my question: Is there any icon size larger than 144x144 supported for Android builds already? If not, any plans to extend the support for Kindle Fire HD and the likes?

Thanks

Blurry icons on test builds are normal for Kindle Fire and Fire HD. When it's published to the Amazon Appstore they create a good looking icon from the 512x512 version you submit at that time.

But, you can make it be significantly less blurry if you include these icons in your app-descriptor:

<icon>

<image36x36>36.png</image36x36>

<image48x48>48.png</image48x48>

<image72x72>72.png</image72x72>

<image96x96>96.png</image96x96>

<image144x144>144.png</image144x144>

</icon>

Hey Colin,

thanks, I didn't know that! We already have all those sizes included already, so I guess we are good to go

Cheers

I don't think I've tried it, but it would be interesting to put in 512x512 too. Maybe Amazon OS would use it.

I just gave it a quick try and no it does not use the 512x512 icon in the carousel for our test build. I would assume that adt filters the icon sizes by platform.
