Amazon Appstore's Free App for 3/27/2012: Preschool Cannonball Monkey

Amazon.com has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is Preschool Cannonball Monkey.

Preschool Cannonball Monkey is priced at $0.99 in Google Play, and is normally priced at $0.99 in the Amazon Appstore. As we've noted before, there are sometimes differences in pricing between the two marketplaces.

Preschool Cannonball Monkey is described as follows:
Sometimes a monkey loves fruit so much, he'll do anything to get some more. Too high up? Too far away? Not for this mischievous monkey!

In Preschool Cannonball Monkey, a quirky and fun Android game for young children, a fruit-fixated monkey has gotten really creative in his pursuit of the perfect meal. He's devised a cannon to propel him into the air, where he can pick all the fruit as quickly as possible.

Monkey Business

Your job is to aim the cannon carefully and then send the monkey flying! As he whooshes through the air, he'll blast through rows and columns of delectable fruits, grabbing as many tasty treats as he can.

Eat your way through more than 30 levels of charming gameplay in this toddler-friendly game. You can pause the game at any time by double-tapping the screen.

Help the monkey fill his hungry tummy with delicious fruits. Ready, aim, and have fun!

Please note: This application is not compatible with the LG Optimus.
Preschool Cannonball Monkey has a rating of 4.5 stars in Google Play and 3.2 stars in the Amazon Appstore.

Preschool Cannonball Monkey only has two ratings in Google Play, perhaps explaining its 4.5 star rating. Its first (and current) version in Google Play was released in October of 2011, yet only has 100 - 500 installs, perhaps explaining its presence as FAOTD: it's not getting any uptake at Google Play.

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.
