Amazon Appstore's free app for Sept. 2, 2012: Greedy Spiders 2 has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is Greedy Spiders 2.

Greedy Spiders 2 is priced at $0.99 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.

Greedy Spiders 2 is described as follows:
Spiders are back!! More evil, creepy and greedy than ever... what will they be up to this time?

Peace at the tiny world is being threatened. Bad guys have returned and they seem to have new allies.

The bugs need your help to fight back! Sharpen those scisors and put your hands to work in this new adventure where things may be not what they look like.

Be ready, and think carefully...

Which side are you gonna take??

Join this amazing second adventure and defy your limits!
Greedy Spiders 2 has a 4.8-star rating in Google Play, and a 3.8 star rating in the Amazon Appstore.

Although that seems like a wide spread, considering these two app stores, it's a fair split. The app has 385 ratings in Google Play, so that is a valid rating. However, the app has 26 reviews in the Amazon Appstore, a much smaller sampling from a set of reviewers that are always more critical.

It's a better-than-normal app for the Amazon Appstore. In general we continue to be disappointed with the FAOTD program. 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.

There isn't a Greedy Spiders 2 game in the iOS App Store, but there is a Greedy Spiders game by the same developer, which appears customized for Christmas (it was released on Dec. 17, 2011) priced at $0.99.

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.
