Amazon Appstore Celebrates One Year In The EU With Free Apps


Share this Post

One year ago today, the Amazon Appstore officially launched in the EU. It brought with it all the advantages of Amazon's Android storefront, including the Free App of the Day, to European owners of Android and Kindle Fire devices. Now the company wants to give a little something back to all of its customers.

Amazon announced today that some of the most popular apps on the Amazon Appstore will be going free today in celebration of the one year anniversary of the Appstore launching in Europe. The offer isn't just exclusive to Europe either as any country that has access to the Amazon Appstore will be able to get the free apps.

That means Amazon Appstore users in the U.S., Canada, UK, Germany, France, Spain, Italy and Japan will be able to download the following apps today for free:

  • Jamie's 20 Minute Meals
  • Drawing Pad
  • Angry Birds (Ad-Free)
  • PAC-MAN HD (Kindle Tablet Edition)
  • World of Goo
  • Shazam Encore
  • SwiftKey
  • Calengoo
  • Sprinkle
  • Paper Camera
  • A lot of these apps and games have already been bought millions of times over the past few years, but it's a good opportunity for those just joining the Android or Kindle Fire parties to get some excellent apps for free. Personally, I recommend Pac-Man HD, SwiftKey and Paper Camera. All are really cool apps that are almost impossible to pass up now that they're free.

    Alongside the sale, Amazon is also running its usual Free App of the Day promotion. For today only, you can grab the excellent Cut the Rope for free. It's playable on your Android and Kindle Fire devices.
