$0.99 is not really free Posted via the Android Central App
This is the normal price, the apps are free now.
I didn't know Tetris was a utility... :p
Ever packed a car boot/trunk? It's a valuable learning resource! :p Wubba lubba dub dub!
Just about the same apps they always put have for free. Posted via Android Central App
Dang... There are some really nice apps on this list. I definitely would've bought Fleksy if I hadn't had it already. Posted on my Galaxy S5
You still have to have the amazon app store installed correct ? If so is it still a wake lock monster Posted via the Android Central App
I don't have it installed. I downloaded a couple through the Amazon shopping app, you do need to keep that installed though. Wubba lubba dub dub!
Hey, RIck. Don't forget you can use Greenify to keep the Amazon Appstore in check. Y-y-ya-yooou should try that out, Rick!.
Yep- have to install and keep installed the Amazon app store or the DRM will break every app installed through it (which sucks). But I haven't noticed the Amazon app store app causing any problems on my devices.
Yeah - that used to be an issue, but I've not had any problems with it lately. Also, you can just "buy" the apps on the website and they are just added to your account in case you want to use them at a later date.
Its a lot of the same apps they've offered before for free in promotions or app of the day. Remember lot of developers don't keep Amazon apps updated so eventually if you want new features and fixes or compatibility with Android version, you need to get them from Google play... But at least a way to try out a paid apo
Collins mcRay still looking step as 1.99. Never understand when Amazon has these promos why they don't show up on the homepage when I open the app itself. I always ha E to get my laptop to easily see the ads. But I'm seeing most are in my cloud anyway
Yeah, I see what you mean. For example, I noticed that Tunein Radio Pro is version 12.8 on Amazon and version 12.9.2 on Play Store. Indeed though, it's still not bad to get a slightly older version of a 10 dollar app for free.
What you didn't reveal to everyone regarding Tunein Radio was.. it was only recently updated on the Google Play Store two weeks ago... so it's kind of premature for anyone to complain about the Amazon version being a version behind since it was just rolled out.
1. It's been my experience that developers usually don't go from 12.8 straight to 12.9.2. So to say it's "a version behind" is totally incorrect. Even if they went from 12.8 to 12.9 to 12.9.1 and then 12.9.2, that puts them 3 versions behind, and that's assuming there was no 12.8.x.
2. It's been 2 weeks and the app hasn't been updated to the latest version on Amazon? Even taking the app approval process into account, IMO, that's unacceptable. I'm pretty sure even Apple would have that beat.
Actually, that was mostly true when the Amazon App Store first got started... but most of the apps I picked up from Amazon are the same version as Google's Play Store. Since you don't seem to use Amazon App Store... you would have no idea about the frequency of the apps... other than from gossip or hearsay.
No thank you. I'll stick to Google Play. Posted via Android Central App with my LG G3
Have a cookie then.

I don't get the Amazon App Store, I assume everything on it is also on Google Play, if not, I'm not sure I have the bandwidth (in me not my network) to deal with two sources. Posted via the Android Central App
Perhaps you should consider using Wifi instead of just relying on a single source (data) for access?
Bandwidth in himslef...
Hey... you're right... I didn't catch that at first... sorry...
That's why I keep Amazon Apps on my phone. They always have great deals every once in a while. Posted with my Nexus 7 2012 or Moto X via the Android Central App
I picked up most of these before. Some (like Plex) I resisted buying for so long on Google Play and just bought at full price last week. Dangit.
Not all of these apps are showing up for free for me, e.g. Colin McRae Rally still shows up as being $1.99.
I have Plex and now Fleksy. Any other ones worth downloading? Posted via the Android Central App
Just picked-up Leo's Fortune for "free" on a technicality... with other promos that Amazon have done in the past of earning "amazon coins" i was able to redeem 99 coins for this awesome game.
Man, I have both a Fire TV and Phone. Was thinking 'bout returning the phone and selling the Fire TV. But Amazon keeps making it harder for me with all their freebies.
I use the calculator they're offering, I like it a lot. Posted via the Android Central App
The Endomondo Sports Tracker is not free, it is a 14-day trial.
