Is there any way to change this? I notice in Android 2.3 that my apps don't put an icon on the homescreen, but in 4.3 it does. I'd rather leave that choice up to the user. I don't see anything in the android eclipse project that is telling it to do so, but wondering if I can add something to tell it not to.
Thanks!

It might be something in the AndroidManifest.xml file that can be added to make that possible.

As far as I know, it's a setting in the phones settings somewhere (I forget exactly where, but I remember having to disable it when my Note 1 upgraded from Gingerbread). I doubt it's possible to change it from inside an AppGameKit app

It's actually in the settings on the Google Play store. Tested it on my device and it seems to work fine. I'll have to get more info from my testers to make sure they also have that setting set. It works fine for me I don't think AppGameKit can control it/
