Amazon Appstore's free app of the day for Sept. 30, 2012: Mole Word has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is Mole Word.

Mole Word 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.

Mole Word is described as follows:
No more boring word games! Discover words, beat the clock, unlock the vault, collect gems, and uncover the top-secret Mole Word!

Mole Word is the fun, fast-paced word game for all ages that's easy to pick up, but impossible to put down!

Mole Word has a 4-star rating in Google Play, and a 4.1 star rating in the Amazon Appstore.   With that agreement, we'd say "buy" it while it is free.

There is also a version of the app in the iOS App Store. There, it is priced at $0.99 and has a 4-star rating overall and for the current version, as well.

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.
