Amazon Appstore celebrates its third birthday with $50 worth of freebies

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.

Or Americans either....actually, just search the apps they are free. But there is no listing of them.

Amazon Appstore works for BlackBerry as well to get apps. No sideload required with 10.2.1.. Install their appstore app and download away. In case you didn't know . . .

I'm in the states and it worked fine for me. The only app I was interested in was the printing app. And guess what, I loaded it up on my BlackBerry Q10 and it works there too. How flippin' cool is that!?
