Everyone loves freebies and here is a good deal for all you app lovers out there. Amazon has just launched one of their routine “Top Paid Apps & Games” promotions. It seems every so often these promotions are on offer by Amazon. Today’s one offers over $135 worth of ‘paid’ apps for free. Those of you who have already encountered previous promotions a number of the apps have been offered free before, both in the previous (same) promotions and as the FAOTD (Free App of The Day). Regardless of this though, free is free and so it is still worth checking out the promotion.
There are simply too many apps offered to really go in to detail here so will just briefly note the ones which may be of interest. In terms of apps (non-games) the best on offer include ‘OfficeSuite Professional’ which is basically an office-based platform for editing Word files, Spreadsheets and so on. This is one which has certainly popped up both in previous promotions and as the FAOTD. Either way if you don’t have it, get it while it’s free. ‘Genius Scan’ is also a decent app which literally turns your device into a scanner for easy digitising receipts, letters or anything physical you might want a digital version of. From memory this one hasn’t been offered before and so is worth grabbing. ‘Paper Camera’ is also a rather neat app which allows you to edit your photos in quite a novel way. For instance, you can take a picture and turn it into a sketch in seconds which always impresses people when you show them. In terms of games this promotion is a little limited although there is a few. First up we have ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’. Now this is the fourth instalment of the Sonic series and to make it more complicated is the 2nd part (Sonic 4, part 2). Both part 1 and part 2 were free in the previous promotion and so it is a shame only part 2 is offered this time. Either way it’s worth grabbing while free as usually is £4. Other games worth a mention include ‘Riptide GP2’ and ‘Abyss: The Wraiths of Eden’ which is part of the G5 games (Hidden Object style games) and is the full version.

Now it is not known how long the promotion will be on for although as a point-of-reference the last promotion lasted 48 hours and so it’s worth grabbing the apps now if you want them. You can download either via the Amazon Appstore or if you don’t want to fill up your internal memory than buy through the website and it will store to the cloud part of your Appstore app. UK users pay attention – although you cannot buy from the US Amazon Appstore the promotion is also being offered on Amazon.co.uk so head over there now or click here.
