Amazon's Android Appstore always has at least one paid app featured for free every day, but for whatever reason, they've decided to make a whopping 31 apps free right now. Taken together they're worth over $100 USD. Most of them are barely notable, but there are some worthy games and apps in there as well. Plex, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, The Room Two, AccuWeather, Root Explorer, Ravensword, Dungeon Village, and Splashtop are all worth it even at the paid price. Pick 'em up now, while the price is nothing.


Most or all of the apps should work on any Android device via the side-loaded Appstore, and of course, all of them will work just fine on Kindle Fire tablets and the upcoming Fire phone. The deal should be valid for Friday and Saturday, though it may be limited to the United States. Here's the full list:

  • Card Wars - Adventure Time
  • Plex
  • Notepad+
  • Sonic the Hedgehog 2
  • The Room Two
  • Dr. Panda's Bus Driver
  • Wedding Dash Deluxe
  • AccuWeather Platinum
  • Root Explorer
  • Ravensword: Shadowlands
  • Sudoku 10'000 Plus
  • Pho.to Lab Pro
  • Informant 3
  • Business Calendar
  • Jump Desktop
  • CrossMe Premium
  • Enigmatis: The Ghosts of Maple Creek
  • EZ Money Manager
  • MobiLearn Talking Phrasebook
  • Splashtop Remote Desktop
  • Dungeon Village
  • aCalendar+
  • Travel Interpreter
  • Pinball Deluxe Premium
  • MyBackup Pro
  • Loco Motors
  • PUZZINGO Puzzles
  • 2Do: Todo List
  • Real Shanghai Mahjong
  • League of Heroes Premium

If all of that isn't enough for you, you can also get your rubber band on with MacGyver Deadly Descent, which is today's standard free paid app.

  • dogulas

    Can someone actually recommend any of these? None of them sound tempting out useful, except Root Explorer.

    • sriks

      Get Plex.. mybackup pro is also a useful tool

    • Olivia

      Don't even need it when free Root Browser does the job just fine.

      • ThaSik1

        Agreed! Root browser accomplishes the same tasks I used to use Root Explorer for.

    • Rami

      Business Calendar, Plex and Jump Desktop are a must have....

  • Google_Is_The_Higgs_Boson

    Where can you get the Amazon appstore... I can't find it in Google Play...

          • Google_Is_The_Higgs_Boson

            Google give mass to that a$$... :)

    • vwbeetlvr


      • Google_Is_The_Higgs_Boson

        I know, I never used it...lol

      • Cherokee4Life

        oh, he is serious. I was laughing because I thought he was kidding. Now I feel like an a$$ for laughing

        • Google_Is_The_Higgs_Boson

          Well I've never used it before... It doesn't hurt asking...

          • Cherokee4Life

            no no, I wasn't trying to be mean. It's totally cool that you asked. I thought you were just trying to be funny and rip on the Amazon App Store at first

          • Leonardo Farage Freitas

            On your phone go to the link above, click anyone of those apps and the site will take you to where you can download it.

          • Google_Is_The_Higgs_Boson

            Thanks I got it...

  • Vignesh

    Will the kindle edition of Room 2 work on nexus 4?

  • longhairbilly

    The Room Two! Don't miss this one.

    • MrHanMan

      It says it won't work on my Galaxy S5. What's up with that? GTA: San Andreas does the same thing. I never did figure out how to get that one to work.

      • Nopeland

        It's for Kindle.

        • HR

          There's no way to get this working on an Android tablet?

          • Dead Mason

            If your friend has a rooted Kindle, you could use it to transfer APKs. Otherwise, no.

          • james kendall

            I wish they let you download the app anyway even if the device is "incompatable" dang kindle only editions.

    • Ten Four

      Kindle edition only...

  • Funem

    Clarc and Card Wars - Adventure Time for free.........:I already have them but if you don't, go get them

  • Alvin Brinson

    Still not worth putting that garbage back on my phone/tablet.

    I bought all the "freebies" from Amazon on Google Play long ago, and deleted Amazon's app. It's a terrible app and usually everything is several versions out of date anyway. Can't believe they're going to sell a phone with it.

    • kabloink

      Amazon can't force developers to update their apps. There are plenty of apps on Amazon that update withing a week of the Play store.

      • Ten Four

        I always update my apps the same day on Google Play and Amazon, but they usually take a day or two to approve the Amazon version. But I kind of understand why developers may not bother keeping the Amazon versions up to date. The Amazon store is like 0.5% of my revenue.

    • atlouiedog

      The app has improved quite a bit. I used to hate it and now I'm indifferent. I use Greenify to keep it (and a couple of other apps) from sucking resources all the time and the installed apps still work fine.

      You're right about apps being out of date, and I'd much rather pay for an app that I depend on daily from Google Play to ensure I have the newest version. However, I mostly use the Amazon Appstore to buy games with all of the free credit they give out because version really isn't important when it comes to Monument Valley or Ridiculous Fishing.

    • My name is….

      From what century did you come out of?

      I have amazon and i have aboslutely zero issues or battery drain with it.

  • Totiny

    It's not limited to United States (Canada work) and the majority (if not all) of this deal is the same :)

  • Olivia

    I grabbed a few things but who knows if I'll ever actually download any of them. Doesn't hurt to have them "purchased" though.

    • Cherokee4Life

      Yep, I just "purchased" 31 apps :)

      • DaynaGuiguipyt

  • Chris Andrson

    Thank you

  • Kostas

    MAN!!!! I bought root explorer from amazon two days ago :/ Coins wasted...

    • Smash41

      Send them an email. Amazon have great customer service and they will more than likely refund you.

      • Kostas

        I 'm not seeing myself spending all those coins in a year so I 'll just leave the $ to the developer.

        • Marcelove

          You deserve this kind sir...

  • Jason Bailey

    Works on the UK store as well guys

  • Avi

    So many of these apps instantly crash on my note 3.

  • Ghost

    Guess I'll finally get Ravensword. Always wanted to try it but not Bad enough to buy it.

  • http://www.failuretodream.com/ lostboardmayhem

    The Room Two and CrossMe Premium, that's two of my favorite mobile games for free now! A shame it had to be this late and even worse, on the Amazon App store.

  • http://friskychatter.com/ _jsw_

    Thanks for the heads up! I got many of these, all for my Fire HDX - which is just a media device for me (an easy way to enjoy Prime offerings and download things for the kids while traveling), so I don't buy apps for it and tend only to stock up on these free offerings.

  • -v-

    Not only for US, in Ukraine works perfectly - got some useful apps already :)

  • Sruly J

    I generally only purchase apps from the Amazon appstore just so that I can say I own them. Been buying them since my ns4g, yet there's only 1 app I keep. Still, it's nice when Amazon does this.

  • https://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=iWizard Bikram Agarwal

    I just went to town with this. "Purchased" several with one click eve though I might not download / install them. I had already bought Plex before though. With the free coins amazon had given me..! :D [laughing like a maniac]

  • http://topbunkstudios.blogspot.com/ Ethan Garen

    Man, this is great! I had none of these apps, and a good 12 or so I've had my eye on for a long time! Amazon is being pretty awesome right now.

  • primalxconvoy

    Is there a dedicated area of the store where these free games are shown or do we have to hunt them by name via search?

  • DonEmu

    It is actually free for two days. Promotion started yesterday.

  • Me

    You guys are great ! :)

  • Your Mother

    I either have most of those apps or don't want them.

  • HolyFreakingCrap

    I wouldnt use the Amazon app store if they had a hot blonde come over to my house and give me a daily hand job,

  • Terry J Bacon II ( TJ )

    I just wanted to say, To The, Community/Android Police; I'm sorry for being into an argument with another member few months back. That's not me or who I (Type Of Person) personally am. Thank You ;-)

  • abobobilly

    US ONLY.

    What the fuck amazon?

    • Rafael Luik

      I was able to download in Brazil.

      • abobobilly

        Can you tell me which country's account do you have? And if you have added a credit card info in your account as well?

        • Rafael Luik

          I'm not sure... It's a simple "Amazon.com" account with Brazilian billing address and (international) credit card.

          • abobobilly

            Ah, i see now why you are able to get these. You have an "international credit card" entered, and Brazil is probably not in the restricted country's list.

            Still, i feel at a great losss :(
