Amazon Using Free To Promote Appstore

In my review yesterday of the Amazon Appstore, I missed a very important feature of the store. Amazon is offering a different paid app for free every day. This is different than the apps that are always free, instead users get the opportunity to install an app they normally have to pay for.

The feature is similar to the free song Amazon provides very day with their MP3 store. As you can see in the screenshot, the daily deal is featured prominently in the Amazon Appstore app. Today’s free deal is the World Series Of Poker: Hold’em game that normally costs $4.99.

Another benefit to the Amazon store is that you can use Amazon gift cards with it. To redeem a gift card on a phone, tap Menu, More, Settings, and then tap Redeem A Gift Card.
