Amazon Appstore's free app, 8/9/2012 Battleship Pro has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is Battleship Pro.

Battleship 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 and availability between the two marketplaces.

Battleship Pro is described as follows:
Set sail and start your battle versus Ted, James and Hans where Ted is the rookie making a lot of mistakes, James is the intermediate guy and Hans... well Hans is Hans! The good old well known pen and paper battleship gameplay is nicely enhanced with hexagonal fields and features which offer a lot of tactical possibilities.

Lovely graphics and sounds make the classic battleship game an exciting experience.

To be clear, the 4.9-star rating in Google Play comes with only 11 ratings. However, there is also a lite version with a 4.3 star rating and 45 ratings. Meanwhile, there are 22 ratings in the Amazon Appstore. has had a trend of late, picking a number of apps that have almost no uptake in Google Play as the FAOTD, so this is a good app to see. Still, we're still disappointed in We'd like to see free versions of say, Office-compatible software or useful utilities such as Tasker instead of niche apps or endless games.

There is also a version in the iOS App Store.  It is priced at $1.99 and but has insufficient ratings to display.

To be clear, though, the "official" Electronic Arts version is available here, priced at $0.99. It is rated at 3.5 stars, both overall and for the current version.
