Amazon Appstore's Free App of the Day, 5/29/2012: First Puzzles HD Pro

Amazon.com has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is First Puzzles HD Pro.

First Puzzles HD Pro is priced at $1.99 in Google Play; it 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.

First Puzzles HD Pro is described as follows:
Fun Puzzles for Young Minds

Clever Kids First Puzzles HD Pro is a fun and simple educational game for children from 2 to 10 years old. Kids will learn new words, shapes, and correct spellings as they explore such exciting places as the farm, the ocean, and the world of the dinosaur.

Playing is simple: drag the pieces of each puzzle around to create a picture, and fill in the animals that inhabit each scene. This app will also help your child spell each word.

On the Farm, Under the Sea, or Back in Time

Kids can choose from three fun puzzle worlds to work in. Down on the farm, familiar characters like cows, pigs, and hens are waiting to be placed in their correct puzzle positions. In the ocean, you'll find lots of friendly undersea creatures like an octopus, crab, starfish, and sea turtle.

And if you're feeling especially brave, go back in time to the domain of the dinosaurs! This prehistoric world features a smiling Stegosaur, affable Apatosaurus, and remarkably un-scary Tyrannosaurus Rex, along with several other lovable dinos.

Whichever puzzle your child decides to work first, she or he is sure to have fun. Get started now and see which puzzle becomes your kid's favorite!
First Puzzles HD Pro has a 4.0 star rating in Google Play. It is rated at 3.7 stars in the Amazon Appstore.

The ratings are, for once, very close between the two marketplaces. Throw out the obligatory spoof one-star ratings in the Amazon Appstore and they are probably nearly identical.

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.
