Amazon has put on one of its best free apps deals yet. The company has listed 27 different paid apps for the low, low cost of zero. The cost of buying all these apps sums up to around $135, which we’d say is a pretty big discount if you were to grab the whole lot of them. Even if you are only interested in a few it should still be a good opportunity to save some money.

Here’s the full list of what’s available for download:

  • Merriam-Webster’s Third New International Pro
  • Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode 2
  • Perfectly Clear
  • Riptide GP2
  • Paper Camera
  • Quell Momento
  • mSecure Password Manager
  • Skethbook Pro

  • My Diet Coach Pro
  • Another World

  • Abyss: The Wraiths of Eden
  • Air Harp (Kindle Fire)
  • MetaMoJi Note (Kindle Fire)

Whew, that’s a tall list. You can check out full details for each title over at Amazon’s site, where you’ll also be able to download any of these apps. Don’t forget you’ll need to install the Amazon Appstore APK in order to download them so be sure to take care of that ahead of all else.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  4. Having lucked into a few apps from Amazon way back in the beginning when the daily free apps were quite good actually, I noticed that they weren’t supported quite as well as versions on Google Play. That’s been my only concern with Amazon apps and why I’ve stopped checking it daily over the years. With one notable exception that happens to be on this list, (Printer Share seems to be updated almost daily for some reason and is an outstanding app.) any Amazon app I’ve DL’d just never gets updated -ever. It’s almost as if there are 2 completely different versions of the app between the stores. I have gone so far as to just purchase the truly useful apps from Google Play over the years just to have the better functionality….

    That said, any idea if this is the case with any of the apps above? If so, I’m eying a couple. If not, I’m willing to use my Google Rewards AKA “Chris Lacy App Fund” on a couple through the Play Store.

    1. I have downloaded several of these before during free app giveaways and I can say the ones I used have always worked well. I can only think of a few apps that don’t work now on kit Kat. I have been pleased with what I got.

      1. Oh, they all still work often without too many issues. However it concerns me that the seemingly exact same apps are updated through Google Play while their Amazon counterparts are untouched. Quick couple of examples, ESPN Score Center, Peggle, Plants vs. Zombies, Pocket Casts, SoundHound Infinity, Weather Bug Elite, Wheel of Fortune. There’s 2 or 3 currently paid versions of these apps available through Google Play, 1 of which I ended up buying and was automatically a different version number than the Amazon App stores. I’m thinking it’s a matter of the free version(s) being limited to compatibility updates while bought versions receive functional updates as often as necessary. That would explain why I’m still able to USE apps from Amazon back in the FroYo days.

  5. Amazon does this a lot. Not only do they have the app of the day, but great deals every so often on other apps. Not desperation, just good marketing. I don’t know of any other app store (on any platform) that does this.

    1. They have to do something to entice you to install the Amazon AppStore or buy an Amazon device.

  6. I got about 6 apps. Some I already had. A decent and good selection of them as well.

    My attitude is if I don’t I the app, I can always uninstall it.

  7. You don’t need the market app anymore, basic Amazon app works to download apps now.

    I saw Threes! on there, it’s AMAZING.

  8. Keep your apps and add Chromecast support to the new Prime Instant video app. I’ll pay for that.

  9. Well cheapskate that I am when it comes to mobile apps, I upgrading to pro variants to fulfill needs that were previously taken care of by ad-laden lite apps.

  10. “Free” is just too expensive when it comes to Amazon apps. I stopped checking Amazon’s FAOTD on a regular basis more than a year ago. While I appreciate the vetting that Amazon does, updates often lag far behind the current versions that are available in the Google Play Store. Even more frustrating is their lockdown policy, which requires that a user be online and signed into the Amazon App Store to use an app. That kills any offline use of an Amazon app on my wi-fi only Nexus 7 tablet, which is often my preferred hardware, especially for games. Once, I remember wanting to use a “free” calculator that I had downloaded, and I couldn’t open it because I was offline and could not sign into the Amazon App Store. Once I download an app, I want to be able to use it when I want. Amazingly enough, a wi-fi connection is not always readily available. Also, just because a wi-fi connection is available, doesn’t mean it’s always desirable to use to as privacy and security are concerns. So, not only am I not downloading any of these “free” apps, Amazon, quite literally, couldn’t pay me to use these apps. The inconvenience cost is just too high.

  11. Some of these apps have a whopping 1 or 2 reviews. Is the Amazon app store a ghost town?

  12. Not free anymore?
