Amazon Giving Away Over $40 Worth of Free Music Apps

Amazon Appstore Resized

As part of Amazon’s continuing Free App of the Day program, the company decided that it would give away an entire bundle of apps today, all being based around music. In total, there are eleven apps that are free, totaling to a value of over $40. This is a pretty generous move by Amazon. 

The apps you can grab for free include Shazam Encore, TuneIn Radio Pro, Ultimate Guitar Tabs, WavePad Master’s Edition, and a whole lot more.

Of course, the one downside of accessing these apps for free is that you will need the Amazon Appstore installed and running on your device. For some of you on Verizon, the Appstore came installed as bloatware, so no worries there.

If you are ready to rock out with a few free music apps, follow the link below.

    This isn’t “generous” of Amazon. When they give away apps for free, the dev’s get absolutely nothing for those apps. This is Amazon desperately trying to save there failing horrific app store.

    When it comes down to it, I’d rather support the dev’s that put out amazing apps, then support Amazon’s crappy app store.

    Everyone is ragging on the Amazon Appstore. Yes, we all know that it sucks. Now, anything constructive to say about the apps that are actually being offered?

    I’ll pass. I remember a long article a while back about an App Developer who was completely ripped off by the Amazon Free App mantra. Prior to that I used it and got a few freebies but noticed that the apps were behind in versions compared to the Play Store. I had one app in particular which had a bug that was fixed but the update never released through the Amazon App Store. After several months of not having the app usable at all I ditched it and went back to regular Play Store use. I even bought an app there through Amazon but after never getting any of the updates I bought it again through the Play Store so I could get those updates. I love Amazon but not their app.

    The total is actually 12, you forgot G stomper is also free today.

    I agree with all of these comments around the Amazon app store. I received TuneIn, Shazam Encore, and Ult Guitar for free a long time ago from Amazon and they remain significantly behind in updates compared to the Google Play Store versions. Be warned. Seems like a great deal, and maybe it is for people who don’t care about future enhancements and bug fixes, but stay away if these things matter to you.

    Amazon does a lot of things right, but the Amazon App Store is not one of them. Unfortunately its a joke of an app store… most of their apps never get updated or even have a fraction of the full functionality that the Google Play Store versions do. Some of these haven’t been updated or enhanced since 2011. I’ll stick with the full price Android Play Store versions that get new features & support.

      That’s the app developers fault. Not Amazons. The app developer has to send Amazon the update. Just so you know.

    I can really imagine a different Amazon Mobile division if they supported android/Play Store… They would dominate. I don’t think anything would stop me from buying a kindle fire at that point because I like their hardware……but no…they want to do their own thing.

      That is just how Amazon had always been. That is how the company started. It wanted to do its own thing different from brick and mortar bookstores.

    Jet audio app is great i paid around 7 from the play store.

  • KyleWay

    Ugh. Thanks… but no thanks. The Amazon AppStore App is TERRIBLE. I’d rather pay full price for the apps and properly support the developers.

      I gave up on the Amazon store a few months after release so it has to be over 2 years now. Silly to have 2 stores on one device. I only want the real deal which is Google play.

    • A2theC

      The point in the store is to give support to devs who do not publish to Google play, like youtube downloader or adblock. They pay the devs a different percentage than Google on the Amazon market also. I agree the store is terrible looking, slow, and they rip off the devs with these freebie “please give me a good rating for free” campaigns.

      I bet none of you are Amazon developers. The developers are the one’s setting their apps for free, and it actually boosts sales afterward, I’ve tried it. Now if a developer sets an app for free on Google’s PlayStore, it stays that way forever, that is, until the the developer takes it down and rebuilds a whole new listing with a slightly different name!
