Amazon Appstore's Free App of the Day, 03/13/2012: Kids Paint & Color

Amazon.com has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is Kids Paint & Color.

Kids Paint & Color is priced at $1.99 in Google Play (remember, Google renamed the Android Market), and is normally priced at $1.99 in the Amazon Appstore. As we've noted before, there are sometimes differences in pricing between the two marketplaces.

Kids Paint & Color is described as follows:
Painting Made Easy

Kids Paint & Color offers a wonderful way to unleash your child's creative genius. Start painting by choosing a color from a vibrant palette. Then choose an object to color - Kids Paint & Color includes 30 images of animals and birds.

Stay Focused on Your Art

Kids Paint & Color has advanced region detection, which ensures that the paint does not bleed into adjacent regions while finger painting. So if you're coloring a lion, the paint stays within the lion and does not bleed into the ground or sky.

Watch a time-lapse movie of the coloring process. For painting smaller objects, the pin mode locks the object so you can focus on painting just that object.

Share Your Genius

Share your creativity with the world. Post the paintings on Facebook, or e-mail them to friends and family. The application supports tablets, and all images are rendered in high definition.
Kids Paint & Color has a rating of 5.0 stars in Google Play and a rating of 4.1 stars in the Amazon Appstore.

Kids Paint & Color only has 3 ratings in Google Play, explaining its 5.0 rating. The 4.1 star rating in the Amazon Appstore comes with 25 ratings, so that's probably a good estimate.

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.
