Amazon Appstore Giving Away $50 Worth of Productivity Apps Today for Free, Including Splashtop HD and Docs to Go

amazong apps free

Amazon is currently hosting a 1-day deal on seven of the most popular and expensive productivity apps with a combined value of around $50. If you decide to grab any or all of them, you won’t pay a dime. We’ talking about apps like Splashtop Remote HD ($8.99), a full version of Documents to Go ($14.95), PrinterShare ($12.95), Tasks N Todos ($5.99), Spacedraw Key ($4.99), and WiFi File Explorer ($0.99).

Of course, you’ll need the Amazon Appstore installed in order to use or at least install any of them, but the deal is solid enough that you may as well at least add them to your account. What I mean, is think about at least logging into your Amazon account online and at least tapping the “Get now” button to purchase them in case you need to use them at a later date.

    For those that keep posting about not being able to get the deal this was from last night, you missed out

  • Sam

    They are not free for me. What the hack!

  • nikhil

    Couldn’t get any of these apps. They want credit card info, so I’m uninstalling amazon app store.

  • burpootus

    Documents to Go Full Version Key still listed at 14.95 for me.

  • sammy

    Amazon doesn’t have any intersting applications for adults.No good variety either.Mostly games and fun applications for childeren and I am not a kid. Gargabe for me.

  • drparty

    I never used the amazon app store because it’s such a resource hog, always running in the background after a restart, but now that we have greenify, I can just freeze it and still use the apps, decent in my opinion.

  • mustbepbs

    Splashtop HD sucks because you can only use it on your own network. If you want to access your PC/laptop remotely, you have to pay them for the service.

    Use Team Viewer instead.

    • Bazar6

      +1 for TeamViewer … They now have a “QuickSupport” app to control your phone from the desktop (if you’re rooted, you can control everything, not just see the current process and open apps)

    Free??? I dont think so. The only app in this offer that interests me is the printershare app, but NO. Once the app is installed and the printer is tested, you need to spend 12.95 for the Key to actually use it for real. Give me a break. It’s an expensive bait and switch.

    • BSweetness

      Incorrect. This is the full version with the key. There’s nothing more to pay.

      • cathy r.

        It wont let me use it unless I purchase the key… any insights?

    I hate the Amazon App Store. Apps get updated later, much later in some cases, than the Play Store. From what I’ve seen you have to have the Amazon App Store installed in order to use those apps. It’s bloated and hurts battery life.

  • Trueblue711

    Free… all while screwing over the developers and helping Amazon’s bottom line!

    No thanks.

    • TheRealCBONE

      No one forces them to sell their crap at Amazon. They get what they get.

  • victorvics

    Most android apps published on Amazon dont get updated by developer. it stays the same version for years when play store get updates. I will skip amazon

    • Linh Nguyën

      Yeah, also sucks that they’re free. And that they don’t stop working. What will I do??

      • Michael Quinlan

        Uninstall the Amazon app store and the apps will stop working soon enough.

        Grabbed them for my tablet. I
        don’t mind Amazon’s app or the nags on there but cannot stand them on my
        phone. Will be interesting to try Spacedraw.

      Back in 2010 Amazon used to have updates two weeks before the android market, and then after the first or maybe 2nd kindle came out and the Android market got to 50,000 apps it started a slow roll in the opposite, now Google gets app updates first and it will be 2 weeks to a month, even for popular games like angry birds. What I’d like to see is faster ports between android and ios both markets have a lot to offer each other, and I don’t understand why some ios will never make it to android when 70% of the world uses it, just a loss of revenue

    • BSweetness

      One of the best apps that’s part of this, PrinterShare, gets updated all the time through Amazon.

  • Finire

    Hmm… At one point or another I’ve already purchased these on Google Play already..

  • Luxferro

    Thanks for headsup. Grabbed them all but Splashtop HD… will grab that one with my tablet later today 🙂

  • Firelight

    Grabbed them for my tablet. I don’t mind Amazon’s app or the nags on there but cannot stand them on my phone. Will be interesting to try Spacedraw.

  • Krista Sanderson

    Most have been offered for free previously, so I already had them, but good sale if you missed them.

  • sc4fpse

    Yeah, they’re free. But you still have to install the Amazon App Store, so no thanks.

    • TheRealCBONE

      You don’t have to do anything with it beyond logging in. What is the big deal?

      • KleenDroid

        This is another one of those things people like to complain about because others do.

        I’ve installed hundreds of the free app of the day apps with never an issue.

    • yes thanks, ingrate lol
