I found the Wikipedia info about Zynga quite interesting. It shows their business is mobile games on Facebook, with lots of advertising and data harvesting.
It is also clear why Amazon could not allow SWC in its app sore from Zynga. Zynga likes direct in app purchasing to Zynga. Amazon does not permit that option.
Not sure of the future of SWC via Google and ios but at least it seems the game has a future and Zynga will promote SWC.

any updates on installing SWC via Google Play? I've tried it with no success. I'd like something easy enough to tell my 12 year old kids how to do it please, not highly technical stuff that takes hours. My 12 year olds aren't on FB, but I MAY create a dummy account for them solely for SWC which is just dumb IMO.

No success yet geoman48. Same here, I created dummy accounts on FB for myself and grandchildren, purely for SWC which indeed is crazy.
I am experimenting with a simple way to run SWC on our Amazons and will post here if I find a solution.
Yes we can replace Fire OS with android etc but I dont want that either. I like my Amazon Fires so just want to run SWC as well as Amazon stuff.

There is some glimmer of hope that the Google Play and Facebook option can work. My brother and I tried it, but it froze on the splash page. Another member who just loaded the apk files and Google Play, and opened a FB account today, got it to work. This might be a compatibility issue with the old apk files and Google Play. Will test it tomorrow on a tablet that does not have any apk files loaded and go through the whole process. Crossing my fingers.

Nice if you can keep going, and if you stop, it's on your own terms - not the devs whims.

To put this issue with Amazon into perspective, Clash of Clans has just arrived in the Amazon app store!! Yes it is true.
If my calculations are right and we get a blue moon tonight, we should see SWC back in our beloved Amazon app store by 2026.
so just remember to mothball your game using Facebook, tap your fingers until 2026, and hey presto!!

Never surrender, we will not be beaten.

I'm still pondering whether to create a Facebook account for my 13 year old twins that play this game on a Kindle Fire Tablets or just tell them to play other games instead. Anybody get Google Play working on Kindle Fire yet reliably?

No still not managed to get the Google play version of SWC working on the Amazon. I have synchronised my game with FB ready to move to another device or version when and if possible.
Good luck to all Amazon users.

We had one player who got the Google Play version to work on their Kindle. We have chatted about it, but we can't figure out why his works and the other four who have tried, does not. We did watch a YouTube video which emphasized downloading the four apk files without installing, then installing them in sequence. The third apk file also appears to be a key file, since it needs to be the right one for your specific tablet (e.g. 7, 8 and 10 inch). We have not been able to replicate the success of one of our members.

useful info lukeskywalker.
Yes I have been experimenting with the 4 apk files too. 4 of them are for Google play and then another one for the SWC itself. I have tried numerous versions, but only one set of the apk files starts the game. It hangs on startup screen though.
I did manage to get to the same stage by just installing the game apk from uptodown website.
Fingers crossed someone finds a solution soon.
