Amazon Appstore's Free App of the Day, 7/16/2012: Yukon Gold Solitaire has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is Yukon Gold Solitaire.

Yukon Gold Solitaire is priced at $1.99 in Google Play, and is normally priced at $1.99 in the Amazon Appstore. As we've noted before, there are sometimes differences in pricing and availability between the two marketplaces.

Yukon Gold Solitaire is described as follows:
Full-featured * Plays easily * Looks great * Tablet-ready

24 popular solitaire (patience) games and variations in a great-looking, easy-to-play package.

Solitaire remains one of the most popular card games for phones and tablets. While there are quite a few solitaire games available, some lack features and options, and others are difficult to actually play on a mobile device. Yukon Gold Solitaire is something better: simple but professional, beautiful and easy to play.

No ads * No special permissions * Can be installed on SD card

Games included:

Alaska * Double Alaska * Double Klondike: Draw 1 * Double Klondike: Draw 3 * Double Russian * Double Yukon * Forty Thieves * FreeCell * Golf * Klondike: Draw 1 * Klondike: Draw 3 * Klondike: Vegas Draw 1 * Klondike: Vegas Draw 3 * Putt Putt * Relaxed FreeCell * Russian * Scorpion * Scorpion II * Spider * Spider: Spades * Spider: Spades & Hearts * Tri-Peaks * Wasp * Yukon

Three scoring modes and a high score board are featured, as well as full undo and redo, hints (suggested moves), and more. Yukon Gold Solitaire was carefully crafted for easy play and a great look on any display size, from small phones to large tablets. Move cards by tapping or dragging. Choose from 5 card face designs and 24 card back designs. Select from a number of stylish backgrounds and background colors. Optimize the layout for either left- or right-handed play. Optional sound effects add to the enjoyment of game play.

If a tableau pile grows so deep that the cards extend off the bottom of the playing area, scroll the display to see them all, or in the settings screen, change the card spacing to fit more cards on the screen at once. In landscape the buttons are moved to the side of the display, and the Auto card spacing mode attempts to compensate for the differences in vertical space between portrait and landscape.
