I did this for my Amazon Kindle and the transfer seemed to work fine - once my Amazon SWC was synced to Facebook and I could play it in FB Gameroom on my PC, I downloaded SWC on my Android phone, started a new game and after doing the tutorial, was able to sync with FB and replace the new game with my old one I had been doing on my Amazon Kindle.

Borrowing from Spirit's list for my new Xmas iPad

iOS (Amazon Fire to FB to iPad using Apple app store)

1) Loaded Facebook of non-SWC playing family member account on Amazon Fire (so as not to mess up my OTHER base that is on my FB account).
2) Signed into Fire FB and swc and Synced Amazon Fire swc base to borrowed FB account.
3) Downloaded swc app through Apple app store and facebook app for the new iPad.
4) Signed into facebook app with Family Member's Account
5) Ran through the tutorial on the iPad swc app.
5) Logged into FB on the screen where the Faction Section is - did not choose a side but rather, signed in to FB via the link on the same choose-faction screen.
6) Confirmed I wanted to RESTORE the already synched game.
7. Since it was a new iPad, I had to create a Game Center nickname via a pop-up in the middle of all this because iPad also wants to synch it to Game Center which will be the backing up method going forward, since I will delete the facebook app)


Screen shots. Good luck, everyone as the deadline is nearly here. At least synch it to the FB somehow. As noted, you can always sign in and out of different accounts via the PC FB Gameroom until a new mobile device can be sorted

SpaceDandy - Thanks for posting your Procedure to include Screenshots :D

NOTICE: Based upon recent previous posts it seems using FBGR (temporarily) and/or another FB Account (not previously used) are the best "Methods" of transferring your Amazon SWC Account to either iOS or Android.

GOOD LUCK TO ALL AMAZON SWC PLAYERS

:arrow: Tomorrow, January 7, 2019 is the deadline (as posted here), so highly recommend you do something today if you have not already.

I saved an Android base to FB and that synced to another Android base. It seems more likely a compatibility issue. The Android base will not find or pull in the Amazon Android version. I suspect that is why you need to download the Amazon Android version through Google Play on the Android tablet through the Amazon app. It must convert it or add something to allow the Android version to sync. Sadly, that option is no longer available. Swc is no longer available on the Amazon app for Android via Google Play.

Hmm .. too bad the same option doesn’t exist from your version. If you happen to encounter the same faction selection screen again, please do a screen capture and post it here.

I managed to move my Amazon SWC account to Android with no poblem. In fact I have using both (not at same time) and the game works fine.
On my Amazon and Android tablets, the option to synch with face book was in game, via the settings menu (towards bottom right of screen). It works fine.
Hope everyone manages to switch over or at least synch to FB for use in the future.

Nice to hear, Spirit, that your switch over did work well. Would be a shame if we lose commanders only due the Zynga - Amazon conflict.... Yeah, we all know: this game is crap... Don't know why I still love it:-):-)

Bosskingwin,

When you were on the Amazon Fire, did you ever - at any point - synch it to Facebook?

Unexpected side effect of Amazon Kindle not being supported... my sons like to play games together. One of them was willing to sync to Facebook. The other was not. So I've been playing SWC with the one son for a few months happily. They go on a trip together this week and discover Clash of Clans. Now both are playing CoC, and are actively trying to get dad (me) to stop playing SWC and start playing CoC. Even mom thinks I should give up SWC in favor of CoC.

I've got too much time (years) invested in this game to give it up right away. But if 2 months from now, my boys and my wife are actively trying to get me to quit SWC and play CoC, SWC is toast for me. I'll give Zynga 2 months to resurrect this game. The shortsightedness of not supporting low cost devices (aka Amazon Kindle Fire) you're going to lose the 13-14 year old boys that will happily move to a diff game because they don't fondly remember going to see the first Star Wars movie (Episode 4) in the theatre in 1977!
