I installed Amazon appstore in order to get Audubon Birds when it was a free app of the day. Birds will not run if Amazon appstore is not running. Problem is whenever appstore is running Onavo pops up a warning that it is a data hog. I want to keep Birds, but get rid of Amazon. Is there a way to keep Birds from looking for the Amazon mothership so that it will run w/o it? I am rooted and running Harmonia 2.08 if that matters.
Thanks in advance

Does birds have an Autosync function you can toggle on/off? Idk really know much about it because I don't use it personally, but just a guess

Thanks for the reply. The problem isn't that Amazon takes up space - I have it linked to the card. The problem is that it constantly uses data when active. I'd like to get rid of it, but I need in order for Audubon Birds to work. I'd like to find a way to break the link between Birds and Amazon or shut off Amazon 's data acess w/o always having to freeze it in L2sd.

To answer the question no there is no way to remove the game from amazon. Its part of there drm/license check. Reason is people could get the free app unlink it and use the play store to update.

I think this answers my question. So I am going to just keep the Amazon appstore frozen except when I'm using Audubon Birds (which btw is a field guide and not a game. I go for Birds of the Angry kind when I want to play ;-))

Thanks y'all!
