Amazon Appstore's Free App of the Day, 5/25/2012: Quote Unquote

Quote Unquote has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is Quote Unquote .

Quote Unquote is available as a free app in Google Play - but it's not really free, more on that later; it 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.

Quote Unquote is described as follows:
Quote Unquote, a word game for your Android device, is a unique mix of crossword-style clues and pithy quotations. Solve clues by searching for the answers within quotes from some of the greatest minds of all time--and some of the not-so-great ones, too.

Some quotes are famous, some are wise, some are funny, and some are lies! See how savvy a player you can be as you work through puzzle after fun puzzle.

Winning Words of Wisdom

In Quote Unquote, every quotation becomes a puzzle waiting to be solved. Build the answers, solve the clues, and go for perfection by using every last letter!

And, best of all, Quote Unquote is free! There are 24 free puzzles for your puzzling pleasure, with more than 300 clues to solve. Additional puzzle packs are available for download, with even more on the way.
Quote Unquote is rated at 4.8 stars in Google Play. It is rated at 4.2 stars in the Amazon Appstore.

At 4.8 and 4.2 stars across the two markets, we'd "buy" this one now while it is free. Those wondering why you should buy this at all when it is free in Google Play should note that the Google Play version isn't really free: you need to pay for the extra puzzles as an in-app purchase.

The game normally comes with 24 puzzles but there are 84 in all, and with this being the FAOTD, all are free. In fact, it's clear the developer goofed with his description, describing it (above) as though it were the free version.

There is also a Quote Unquote app in the iOS App Store. The iOS version is free, but with in-app purchases as high as $3.99. The iOS version is rated at 4.5 stars for the current version and 4.5 stars overall.
