Many of the 1-star Appstore ratings are because of a) developer ratings, b) in-app purchases, a source of a lot of anger in the Amazon Appstore when the app is already a paid app. However, 1,352 ratings in Google Play and a 4.8-star rating don't like: "buy" this while it is free.

Monster Shooter: The Lost Levels also appears in the iOS App Store. It is priced at $2.99 with a number of in-app purchases, and has a 4.5-star rating for the current version and 4.5 stars overall.

We continue to be disappointed by the Amazon Appstore FAOTD. It began promisingly enough, with Angry Birds Rio, but we've gotten tired of the endless games or niche apps, and especially apps which have no uptake in Google Play, and seem to be FAOTD as a desperation move by the developer. We'd like to see free versions of say, Office-compatible software or useful utilities such as CalenGoo instead of niche apps or endless games.

Those who are considering "buying" a Free Amazon Appstore app might want to consider what it means to developers. 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. has responded to the lawsuit in the same manner.
