If you’ve invested in Amazon’s digital ecosystem, you’ll want to keep an eye on some of the deals they’re going to be offering right around Christmas. There are tons of offers on everything from apps to movies and TV shows to Kindle books, some of which are completely free.
Starting on Christmas Even and running until December 26th, the Amazon App Store will be offering the biggest free app bundle Amazon has ever done. There will be tons of free apps for you to preload on your Kindle devices, including games from developers like Rovio and Sega, and Amazon is offering discounts on Amazon Coin purchases on top of that. Following into the New Year, you can expect more discounts on other apps and games, too.
Yahoo has added a new feature to their customized home screen launcher, Aviate. Users will now be able to make universal searches across their device and the web thanks to a new search bar on their homescreens after updating the app. This is similar to the search bar that you see on Google’s launchers, but it does, of course, use Yahoo as the search engine.
It’s a pretty minor tweak, but the extra feature definitely helps flesh out Aviate a bit.
Join is a new app that’s just hit the Play Store that allows you to set up a wireless connection between multiple Android devices. This lets you quickly share files and content between the devices, and you don’t even need internet access to make it work.

It’s a pretty handy tool that’s somewhat similar to Samsung’s Share Play on their Galaxy devices.
