Celebrating its third birthday the Amazon Appstore for Android has decided to give away freebies and discounts to customers. Amazon has been doling out the freebies, which are in the form of apps, for customers since Saturday. The third birthday celebrations will be on for a week, wherein each day a paid app can be availed for free in the ‘Happy Birthday Appstore’ promotion, while several other paid apps are available at discounted rates.
The currently free paid app of the day on the Amazon Appstore for Android is OfficeSuite Professional 7 by MobiSystems, normally retailing at $14.99, while paid apps that are discounted include Endless Skater, Bejeweled 2, Scrabble, Plants vs. Zombies, Monopoly, and Need for Speed Most Wanted. These deals are currently available via the Amazon App Store for Android app in India
Amazon also has ‘Coins Birthday Deals’ on offer, where users get Amazon Coins with certain in-app items. Amazon Coins can be used for apps, games, and in-app items from a Kindle Fire, Android phone or tablet, and on Amazon.com. Current Coin Birthday Deals include Gameloft Offer, Bingo Rush 2 Offer, EA Offer, Words With Friends Offer, and Cooking Dash Offer.
The apps in the birthday sale can be downloaded to Android devices and also on Amazon Kindle Fire tablets. In order to help the customers download the apps, Amazon has also posted an easy tutorial (https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/feature.html?ie=UTF8&docId=1000714543) for Android users who can download Amazon Appstore for Android app on their mobile devices.
A few days back when the Google Play store had celebrated its second birthday, it too had given out apps for free as well as on sale. That combined with slashed prices on songs and other paid apps had been Google’s celebration. Amazon is not new to this sort of gifting. In fact, Amazon Appstore for Android also gives away one paid app for free every day on their app store. In October, last year it had given away apps worth £15 (roughly Rs. 1,501) for free.
In some regions, the Amazon Appstore for Android had given away a veritable bevy of apps for free over the weekend, that such as Armageddon, Puss in Boots Monopoly, Worms 2, Fruit Ninja, Pro GPS Running Walking & Fitness Tracker, SketchBook Pro, Swype Keyboard, mSecure Password Manager and Secure Digital Wallet, amongst others.
