Amazon Appstore's free app of the day for Sept. 26, 2012: Quiet, Please has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is Quiet, Please.

Quiet, Please 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.

Quiet, Please is described as follows:
After an annoying day at school, you just want some peace and quiet. But everything at home is so noisy!

Mr. Peabody is obsessively mowing his lawn, Dad is channel surfing and Mom is yapping on the phone.

Your pesky kid brother won't go to bed, and even your pet kittens are driving you crazy!

Explore, interact with your environment and solve puzzles.
Quiet, Please has a 4.2 star rating in Google Play, and a 4.1-star rating in the Amazon Appstore.

With that agreement, we'd say: "buy" this app while it is free.

There is also a version of Quiet, Please in the iOS App Store.   It is priced at $0.99 and has a 5-star rating for the current version, which is the only version rated thus far.

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 (we just assume every day that it's going to be a game; it's gotten that bad). 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.
