Well folks, it’s been roughly a year since Amazon launched their Appstore for Android as they looked to change the market game forever with their free app of the day. While at first they offered some great apps like Swiftkey or Plants vs. Zombies there have been complaints that there have been a slew of lackluster offerings for the free app but I digress. In celebration of their one year landmark Amazon has decided to celebrate by offering up their Premium (paid) apps for 50% or more off. For instance, today you can get Plants Vs. Zombies for 67% off ($0.99). Tomorrow they will have two apps discounted then three the next day and so on.
Besides discounted apps, Amazon is also throwing in a chance to win a Kindle Fire to 8 lucky contestants who enter their contest between now and March 31st. Discounted apps and free Kindle Fires aside, Amazon also took some time out of their day to hit us with some number data regarding their Appstore. One of the highlights from that information is the fact that they jumped from offering 4,000 apps to over 31,000. It may not be as many as the Google Play Store but that’s still a decent number of apps.
Hit the break below to find a link to the contest as well as see the top downloaded paid and free apps over the past year. There’s also a break down of highlights and tidbits for you to check out too. Hit the Appstore Birthday Page daily to see what apps are going to be discounted. While most of these apps were free via the Free App of the Day at some point, if you missed them, then here is your chance to get them at a discounted price. Enjoy! » Read the rest
