Amazon Appstore's free app for 8/12/2012: PopStar has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is PopStar.

PopStar is priced at $1.99 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.

PopStar is described as follows:
Once you Pop, you just can't stop!

This best seller game is now available for Android!

Excellent Game!

"Now my current favorite game! Strategic, addictive and challenging fun for everyone! Replay value is high! I keep improving! This should be on everyone's favorite Android game list! Great game!"

Can't get my thumbs off it

"I used to play Popstar on the iPhone but now I am so glad that I found Popping Stars for Android. The graphics in this Popping Stars for Android is even better than iPhone's Popstar!"

How to Play:

- Just tap two or more blocks of the same color.
- There is no time limit, but each stage has target points to proceed to the next stage.

Tips on Scoring:

- Remember just two rules below:
1. The more blocks you pop, the more score you will get
2. Try to clear all block, you will get a lot of bonus points.

There is a free version in Google Play that has a 3.9 star rating, but despite that, the consistency between Google Play and the Amazon Appstore tell us to skip this one.

There is a version of PopStar in the iOS App Store. It's priced at $0.99 and has a 4 star rating for the current version and 3.5 stars overall.

We've gotten tired of the endless games or niche apps as the FAOTD. We'd like to see free versions of say, Office-compatible software or useful utilities such as WidgetLocker instead of niche apps or endless games.
