Amazon has the habit of giving away free apps periodically to entice more customers into getting hooked onto their Appstore. Today, the retailer is offering a similar promotion on 37 apps which usually cost close to $140 combined.
It’s New Year’s Eve so it’s time for an app sale, and Amazon is game. As you know, Amazon always offers a Free App Of The Day, but today they are bundling 33 apps for Free. If you were to purchase every app on any other day of the year, it would cost you $110. Now it’s unlikely that you can use all of them, but there just might be a handful that interests you, assuming you don’t mind installing the Amazon App Store on your device. Just remember, these apps will only be updated through the Amazon App Store, so you need to keep that app installed on your device. A little bit of a pain, but it won’t cost you a penny.
Full list of apps, along with the link to all of them, after the break.
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.

Before now, the only way to download apps from the Amazon Appstore was to download the apk for the Appstore online, and then download apps. Last month, however, Amazon launched the functionality to download apps through the official Amazon app. All you have to do is head to “Shop by Department,” and you’ll find a new category called “Apps & Games.”
If you’ve got the Amazon Appstore loaded up on your device, you’ll find that Amazon is offering 30 paid apps for free through the store. The deal ends after tomorrow, and the 30 free apps normally would represent over a $100 value.

We have literally no idea how Amazon’s Prime Music is doing commercially, but it did recently add “hundreds of thousands of songs” and hundreds of playlists to the service.
The expanded availability of music is good for its current users, which can listen through their smartphones, computers, and Amazon’s cloud player.
Amazon’s Android app was updated recently in order to promote a new image and introduce a single sign-on feature across all Amazon apps.
The application now has a brand new icon, clearly promoting the online shopping aspect of the company.
The single sign-on feature will work across Amazon’s Android applications — when you sign into the Amazon app, you’ll automatically be signed into other Amazon apps, including Kindle and the Amazon Appstore.
Support for devices under Android 2.3 was dropped as well, and some bug fixes were added to the update. Hit the break for the link to the app in the Play Store.
