Amazon Appstore

Amazon today is offering up some nine free Android apps. As in gratis. Pay nothing, spend nothing. Free. Android. Apps. A couple are for Kindle tablets, but the other seven should work on smartphones as well. All you need is the Amazon Appstore app, and you're on your way.

Here's the list:

If you need to install the Amazon Appstore, you can snag it here for sideloading.

Ski Safari is not awful.

Also don't complain about free things.

Me too. Great game for a quick run or two. Always installed on my devices.

13Elves says:

So malware and viruses get a pass cuz theyre free?

Especially awful because they are not apps, they are games. Just because you get something at the grocery store does not make it groceries, IE edibles.

Apps implies productivity.

Apologies for being snarky.

Am I the only one who gets frustrated when games are referred to as apps? It bugs me to no end that the apps section in the play store is full of games.

Steve Hall says:

Nope, you're not the only one. I don't play games on my phone (I have a Nexus 7 and a laptop for that); I was really hoping to find some good applications in this article. So yeah: I'm complaining about free stuff.

But... a game is technically and App or specifically an Application. That is how it runs.

True, but I wish games were not referred to as apps, in the same sense that sports are not news.

But sports news is news.

I enjoy watching sports news on my cellular telephone. I downloaded it from the app store in the news section next to the game apps.

Nice comparison. Technically it's against logic, but I agree with you.

Horseworld and Tappy are both showing as having a cost when I look at them on amazon's web page.

Where's Tappy is free in the Google Play store.

Wheel of Fortune also came with a 1 dollar credit for mp3 purchase.

"As a purchaser of a select app from the Amazon Appstore for Android you have earned a $1 credit valid towards Amazon MP3 albums or single songs..."

Isn't this usually a horrible deal for the developers that make them?

Couldn't get ski safari on my note 3 :(

I think this must be a bad link - I clicked on all the links, but they all just brought up games ... No apps to be found, anywhere ("apps" does not equal "games" in the real world) :-\
