    Amazon App Store - awful results?

    Hi everybody, so, I uploaded one of my average apps, which on google play has a few thousand downloads in a few weeks. However, after a week on Amazon, it has " - " downloads (meaning zero).

    Google Play:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...tudios.penguin
    Amazon:
    http://www.amazon.com/Best-Games-Stu...dp/B00ZLTGGPS/

    I've done the usual ASO (translating to different languages using google translate, using keywords, etc)

    Is this normal? What are your experiences?

    For me Amazon AppStore downloads and sales are slowly dying. It started about a year ago and now are close to zero. The only thing that still sells there for me is Fire TV stuff (but it's about 1 sale per day).
    I suspect one of the reasons might be that other developers are buying fake reviews - maybe they are getting the downloads now because they have more and better reviews. Other reason might be that people stopped buying Kindle Fire tablets. And we all know Fire Phone was a disaster.

    Being from the U.S., I would say this is most likely the reason.

    Oddly enough I have the opposite problem. On google I get 20-50 downloads a day. And that's a huge improvement b/c before I changed my icon and description I couldn't get more than 5 downloads a day. But it seems to have peaked at 50, b/c no matter what I try, I can't get it any higher. On iTunes I get about the same 20-50 downloads a day. The only difference is that Apple users actually buy the in app purchase items from time to time. On Google I've never made a single sale.

    On Amazon I get between 120 and 150 downloads a day, and they buy the in-app purchases all the time. I average about $10 a day on Amazon. On Apple about $2 a day. On Google it's $0.

    In my case I get from Amazon about 2 downloads at day, overall 78 downloads (game published about a month ago). In GP is about 1100 downloads overall (10-30 at day)

    But no one rated or reviewed it

    Yeah, I somehow got my little niche over there. Not that it's all that big or anything, but I get more downloads on Amazon than Google and iTunes combined.
