Unlike your highly restricted iPhone toting friends, you Android users have multiple options for obtaining new apps, including Amazon’s AppStore. This alternative to the Google Market is a must-have for smart, thrifty, and shrewd users like yourself.
A Free Android App Every Day
Even though Amazon gives me a cut for generating sales, I promote this part of the Amazon AppStore to everyone I know: Amazon features a free Android app every day. That’s right. You can get a new, free app every single day with the Amazon AppStore.
From time to time there are apps that I can do just fine without, even though they are free. But usually these free apps are a great deal. Recently I got the Guitar Hero 5 app, normally $7.99, for free.
Discounts on Premium Apps
In addition to the free apps featured every day and the host of other free apps in the AppStore, Amazon offers various specials and deals on its other premium apps as well. You can check out the current deals here.
Buy an App and Re-Install it at Will
When I was first getting started the Amazon AppStore, I worried about running out of space for all these free and cheap apps on my phone. I have a rooted EVO, so I was also worried about losing my apps when I flashed a new ROM.
I was pleased to discover that this isn’t a problem at all with the Amazon AppStore. After you have purchased an app (whether it was free or not), you can re-install it onto your phone whenever you need to.
Test Drive Apps Before You Buy
If you are interested in an app on the Amazon AppStore but aren’t sure if you want to take the plunge, try it out first. Amazon has developed a web interface to test drive apps right in your browser. This way you can know exactly what you’re getting before you buy it.
