The 4.9-star rating in Google Play comes with 41 ratings. IT's not a huge number, but it's better than a 5-star rating with only one of them. With that, plus the Amazon Appstore rating, which comes from 33 reviews, we'd say "buy" this while it's free.

Despite the fact that we finally have a highly rated free app, 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.
