Amazon Appstore's Free App of the Day, 2/14/2012: Bag It!

Amazon.com has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is Bag It!.

Flightnetwork.com -Specializing in Cheap Flights
Bag It! is priced at $0.99 in the Android Market. It is normally priced at $0.99 in the Amazon Appstore. As we've noted previously, prices sometimes differ between the two marketplaces.

Bag It! is described as follows:
Once Upon a Time, in a Bag Far, Far Away

Bag It! is the exciting grocery-bagging puzzle game that will open your eyes to a whole new world inside your shopping bag. These watermelons, eggs, and baguettes have real personality--it's like Tetris meets Toy Story. To add to the fun, Spilt, Sunshine, and all their friends are celebrating Valentine's Day with new holiday-themed visual effects and other Valentine's Day secrets.

Think You've Got It in the Bag?

Bagging groceries should be a piece of cake. Heavy, sturdy items on the bottom, light and fragile items on the top--seems simple, right? Think again! Bag It! features more than 50 unique levels, three game modes (Standard, Rampage, and Puzzle), tantalizing grocery combos, custom-tailored translations in seven languages, and much more.

Don't Scramble the Eggs
To play, you'll first choose an aisle from the likes of Fresh Squeeze, Udder Mayhem, Ultimate Bagger, Endless Rampage, and much more. Then start dragging those grocery items into the bag. Be careful--if you throw items in haphazardly, you'll end up with squished bread, broken chips, and fewer points. Watch for timers that indicate when an item is about to break. Tilt your device left and right to shift things around. As you progress through the levels, you'll face various challenges, including rotating items to make them fit or sit upright, rearranging poorly bagged items, and more.

Go for Silver and Gold

Try to get all three stars and both medals for each level. See how your packing skills stack up against others and post your scores to OpenFeint leaderboards.

Ther'es not much to say with ratings this high. Even the Amazon Appstore, which typically is more critical than the Android Market, has this app rated at 4.3 stars, and with a 4.8 star rating and 765 ratings there: "buy it" while it's free.

Those who are considering "buying" a Free Amazon Appstore app might want to consider what it means to developers.

Amazon.com opened up the Appstore despite a lawsuit by Apple, which has previously trademarked the term "App Store." Microsoft has filed an appeal against that trademark, saying the term is too generic. Amazon.com has responded to the lawsuit in the same manner.
