It’s that time of the year, where all holiday-themed applications should see cuts in pricing, and Amazon has bundled them all up for easy finding. Taking place on the Amazon Appstore, you can find many titles on sale, some of which should be perfect for any zombie or ghost lovers among us. Not only are Halloween titles for sale, but there are also deals on NBA 2K14, and other non-holiday games. (more…)
Amazon currently has one of the largest libraries of Android apps in the world, second only to Google’s own Google Play store. According to a new rumor that was originally posted by Game Informer, the world’s biggest e-retailer has an Android-powered gaming console up its sleeve, with plans of utilizing that large library to power its content. The console is rumored to launch later this year, and will connect directly to the Amazon Appstore, allowing for gamers to play their favorite Android games on their HDTVs or wherever else they can hook the console up to.

Have the Amazon Appstore installed on your Android device? Well, if not and you want some awesome Angry Birds Star Wars action for free, you best get on that. For a limited time (we’re guessing) Amazon is giving away the ad-free version, which carriers a value of $1, for completely free. Score! (more…)
Yesterday, the Amazon Appstore received an update that fixes notification bugs and also gives you the option to download 50MB apps over 3G/4G (up from 20MB). Other than that, it’s nothing to get all excited over.
What I’m wondering, is if anyone uses this app store anymore? Not one DL reader mentioned it to us. And since I haven’t had it installed in months, I had to find out that it had updated through a family member who was prompted. So tell me, are people still using Amazon for apps or has their 1-trick app-of-the-day schtick worn out?
The Android and iOS app stores have hit their share of milestones over the last couple of years. Their number of apps available, downloaded and paid for are increasing with every blink of the eye. But have you ever wondered what a timeline of those milestones looked like? When both markets officially kicked things off or when they hit their first billionth download? Thanks to the folks at ShoutEm, we get just that through an inforgraphic. (more…)
If you have been looking to pick up one of those new Philips Fidelio Docking Stations that we reviewed last week, do it now. For a limited time when you purchase one of the four docks from Amazon, you will receive a $15 credit towards any Amazon MP3 purchases and a $15 Amazon Appstore credit. $30 of Amazon goodness. There is sure to be a docking station to suit the needs of anyone. They would also make a great gift.
Love it or hate the Amazon Appstore has some incredible deals. From their discount prices to their Free App A Day program, you can’t go wrong. Amazon has launched a new promotion called “Geek Week”, in which they have discounted a few useful apps for the above average Android user.
The apps are a mix of both tools and utilities and are as followed:
- Easy Tether for $4.99 (normally $9.99)
- Root Explorer for $0.99 (normally $3.99)
- WidgetLocker for $0.99 (normally $1.99)
- Wave Launcher for $0.99 (normally $1.99)
- SetCPU for $0.99 (normally $2)
- RepliGo Reader for $1.99 (normally $4.99)
- Xtralogic Remote Desktop Client for $12.99 (normally $24.95)
- BackupEverything for $0.99 (normally $1.99)
I’ve used Wave Launcher and would recommend it (it was free a few months ago). As for the essentials, I would say both Root Explorer and SetCPU are a must have for any rooted user. Easy Tether could be useful for users who aren’t rooted and are looking to tether their phone to other devices.
To take advantage of these deals, hit up for Amazon Appstore on your phone or tablet.
