[Deal] Grab 17 apps for free from Amazon today, over $100 in savings

Amazon_Appstore_bugdroid

Amazon is notorious for giving away apps for free, but today is a little extra special. They have 17 apps available for free that normally cost over $100 in total. They have some notables too, like the Flesky Keyboard and Camera ZOOM FX. The most expensive one on the list is the Oxford Dictionary of English, which normally goes for $24.99.

I generally don’t like to download apps from the Amazon App Store since the updates aren’t as quick as Google’s Play Store. Plus it’s a pain keeping the separate app store on my device. However, this is a great opportunity to try these apps for no cost. and if you like them, you can certainly grab them from the Play Store or keep using them through Amazon. Just remember, the Amazon App Store has to remain on your device to continue using them.

Hit the break for the full list of apps.
