If you head over to T-Mobile's site right now, you'll find the carrier has slashed its entire 4G Android lineup to the low, low price of free on any new two year agreement. Move quick if you want to take advantage of it, though - this sale ends at 3AM PST (April 13).

Could it be? Is Amazon offering another useful app that I actually want to own for the 2nd day in a row? That's pretty much a first so far, with the Shazam Encore/SwiftKey tag team being a close second. What makes today's deal especially valuable is that there is no free version of Wolfram Alpha at all, so combined with 4.7 stars and over 1,800 reviews in the official Market, getting today's free app right away is pretty much a no-brainer.

After a few days of relatively disappointing free premium apps of the day in the Amazon Appstore, today we have a real treat - the Pro version of a photo editing app PicSay. Before I go on, I must note that this is the only photo editing app I actually bought quite a while ago, after playing around with the free version. It's no wonder - the app has 4.8 stars and over 11,000 ratings in the Market. Read More
If this is going to become a regular weekly event, then sign me up. Amazon's 1-premium-app-per-day deal got a bit of a split personality today, just like a week ago, and instead of one, two apps turned free until the clock strikes midnight. The apps, which are actually both games, are:
- Airport Mania (
$0.99 $0), in which you become an air traffic controller and which is rated remarkably high (4.5 stars, 47 reviews)
- Backbreaker Football (
$2.99 $0), which is a 3D football crusher with 90 waves, 9 challenges, and 3 difficulty levels
I must say, I like where this is going, though I can't shrug off a feeling that Amazon is just apologizing extra hard for the last 2 days today (the Angry Birds Rio dupe and the Talking Tom Cat were not exactly the crowd's favorites). Read More
That's right, Amazon's offering not one, but two free apps on the Amazon Appstore this morning! You can pick up the popular HeroCraft title Farm Frenzy along with the official Newsweek Mobile app from Amazon free of charge.
I don't know about you - but I can't tell which is which.
Newsweek Mobile offers Amazon's "Test Drive" in-browser emulation, so you can try it from your browser before making the 15 second commitment to put it on your phone. Read More
Without taking a break from yesterday's free Shazam Encore deal, Amazon is continuing its daily giveaway of awesome premium Android apps with another one of our favorites - SwiftKey Keyboard.
SwiftKey normally costs $1.99 in the Android Market ($1.79 in the Amazon Appstore), but for the next 24 hours, U.S. residents will be able to download it to their Digital Lockers for free, thereby claiming it forever. Even if you are not a fan of SwiftKey just yet, there is no reason to pass on this deal if you can get it - just do it now, then think and decide later. Read More
To those who can access it (read: U.S. users), the Amazon Appstore may seem like one of the best things since sliced bread - it trumps Google's own web-based Android Market in almost every way. One of such differentiating features is the Goldbox-like Free Premium App of the Day concept that, like Groupon and its competitors, was introduced to provide great deals to consumers and giant spikes in traffic to app developers.

Moments ago, after months of preparations and precisely on the rumored release date of March 22nd, the Amazon Android Appstore finally went live.
The Amazon App Store is now back up, but it looks like it's US-only. Also, the Test Drive is not available anymore, at least for now.
If the appstore is still down for you, try downloading the app using this direct link to the appstore APK (I got it via an SMS from Amazon): http://amzn.to/getappstore
This contest is now over. We have selected the winners - see if you are one of them towards the bottom of the page.
Guess what time it is! That's right, it's time for another giveaway, and this time we've partnered up with HyperBees to give away 3 Zeemote Bluetooth gaming controllers (~$30 value each), all for downloading and trying out the free version of their very popular Speedx 3D. The game has been out for a while in paid-only form, but this week Hyperbees released a free ad-supported version, which they are now trying to promote. Read More
