Amazon Appstore's Free App of the Day for July 31, 2012: AppDads Coloring Expansion

Amazon.com has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is AppDads Coloring Expansion.

AppDads Coloring Expansion is priced at $0.99 in Google Play. It is normally priced at $0.99 in the Amazon Appstore. As we've noted before, there are sometimes differences in pricing and availability between the two marketplaces.

AppDads Coloring Expansion is described as follows:
Unlock the Expanded Capabilities of AppDads Coloring

AppDads Coloring Expansion is an add-on package for the AppDads Coloring application (available in the Amazon Appstore). This expansion is installed as a standalone application giving you the standard free capabilities of the original app, but with an additional coloring package and enhanced drawing modes. The new picture package gives you more than 50 images of fun, colorable characters. Included in the cartoon package are animals, insects, boys, girls, school supplies, and professions.

AppDads Coloring Expansion is easy to learn. Use the color ribbon at the bottom of the view to select a color that suits your fancy. Then click on any white fillable region in the image to paint. It's that simple! Use the zoom and pan feature to get those hard to reach coloring places. In addition, the expansion pack unlocks other extended features in the app, such as free hand painting, erase, and stamps.

Proud of your work? Save it to your Android device or share it with your friends. Backed by the power of Google, this app also adds the ability to download virtually limitless coloring pages all from within the app.

  • Color more than 50 fun characters
  • Express your creativity by free hand drawing
  • Adjust the thickness of the brush or eraser
  • Decorate with your favorite stamps and color them just as you would a normal coloring page
  • Personalize the coloring pages with your own images
  • Choose from more than 150 different colors
  • Save your creations to the gallery
  • Share and publish your work (Facebook, e-mail, Flickr, Google+, Twitter, Picasa, etc.)
AppDads Coloring Expansion has a rating of 5.0 stars in Google Play and has 4.2 stars in the Amazon Appstore.

To be clear, the 5.0 star rating in Google Play comes with only two ratings, overall, continuing a recent trend in the Amazon Appstore of picking a FAOTD where the developer seems desperate for publicity. There are only 11 ratings in Amazon Appstore, however.

Despite that, we'd probably "buy" this and try it while it was free.

There is also a version of AppDads Coloring Expansion in the iOS App Store. It's also $0.99, but hasn't had enough ratings on the current version - or overall - to be displayed.

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.
