Amazon Appstore celebrates its third birthday with $50 worth of freebies
The Amazon Appstore is now three years old today. To celebrate, Amazon is giving away $50 worth of apps for a very limited time. How limited? If you don't start installing the free apps now, you might be out of luck. Some of the free titles include Worms 2: Armageddon, Monopoly, Fruit Ninja: Puss in Boots, Runtastic Pro GPS Running, Walking & Fitness Tracker, SketchBook Pro, Swype Keyboard, mSecure Password Manager, Secure Digital Wallet, Dr Panda's Airport, PrintHand Mobile Print Premium, SketchBook Pro, and Ski Safari: Adventure Time.

You might recall that Amazon and Apple got into a legal battle over Amazon's use of the Appstore name. Eventually, both sides reached a settlement and Apple and Amazon spokesmen each claimed victory for their side. The winners today are users of the Amazon Appstore, who are downloading and installing $50 worth of apps for free.

The Amazon Appstore is available on Amazon Kindle Fire tablets, and on Android powered phones and tablets. Amazon has posted a easy to follow tutorial for Android users who would like to have the Android Appstore on their devices. You can find it by simply clicking on this link.
