Get Notified When the Amazon App of the Day Changes Using this App

If we aren’t doing a good enough job of reminding you about Amazon’s Free App of the Day and you continually forget to check for yourself, then you’ll want to grab this app from XDA member cody_04l.  You can set it up to trigger a notification that will tell you what Amazon’s app is for that day and even direct you into the Appstore for download.  Simple and easy.

Download:  AAOTD_Reminder.apk

Via:  XDA

    Quick! Someone make an app that reminds me to download this app!

  • This is a stellar idea. Installed!

  • I’ve missed some cool free apps — glad to have this. I’m surprised Amazon doesn’t take the opportunity to remind us themselves. Thanks Cody! PS I’m getting some force closes on my Thunderbolt (nonrooted, Android 2.2.1), but it seems to still work despite the FCs. Worth it 🙂

    Thanks for the fix Mark

    Kellex, what are the “Notifications” and “Quick Settings” tabs at the bottom of your pull down? I’ve never seen those before.

    •  Its a Gingerbread Sense ROM.

      part of a ROM. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1084474

      Pretty sure it’s a sense 2.1 thing.  It’s in the new ROMs for the Thunderbolt. 

  • what, no QR?

     If you download from phone, use a file explorer to rename the file from .txt to .apk, then install

      +1 I had to do the same.  I renamed it aaotd.apk so I could find it again on my sd.  Worked like a charm.

        Same here! Strange…wonder why it’s doing that. Oh well…just rename it and it works out fine.

  •  Cute…..but I would have to be a fool to forget that Amazon is giving away free sh*t everyday 😛

      Yeah, but regardless, still a decently useful app!

        Hardly. All that will do is take up space. Everyone has sites that they check in the mornings. Just add this to it. I have the App store bookmarked in my favorites so I just go down the line and get to this.

          I disagree. Right now my life is too turned upside down to remember or keep track of things (Mom went to hospice, so that’s an all-consuming thing right now). Still, I want to snag good free stuff so this will be one more thing that is an automated reminder. Very useful for me for now. Probably not forever, but for now, I can use all the help I can get to remember!

  • Nice! that will be pretty handy! I myself use  the Amazon App Store twitter account (https://twitter.com/amazonappstore) and get mobile updates (they tweet the new game at 3AM) and also has other deals. For people who want another solution.

      i do something similiar, i added their twitter feed to my reader, since i’m in there everyday anyway

      I do this. Instead of opening Twitter, I just have their tweets send me an SMS.. Free Alerts without another app having to fetch.
