Amazon Appstore's free app of the day for Oct. 21, 2012: Word Link has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is Word Link.

Word Link is called Word to Word and is priced at $1.99 in Google Play. It is normally priced at $1.99 in the Amazon Appstore. As we've noted before, there are sometimes differences in pricing and availability between the two marketplaces.

Word Link is described as follows:
Keep your brain sharp and active with this fun, fast and addictive word association game.

If you love crossword, word search, or hangman, you will love Word Link.

Dog... Cat.
Cold... Hot.
Tasty... Delicious.
Fire... Truck.
Sugar... Coffee.

Select and match 5 pairs to complete each puzzle. The faster you go, the more stars you'll get!

Words can be synonyms.
Words can be antonyms.
Words can be compound.
Words just have to be related.

Word Link comes with 10 packs. That's 500 levels with more coming this year!


Word Link has a 4.8-star rating in Google Play and has 3.9 stars in the Amazon Appstore.

Those ratings are high enough and close enough. We'd say "buy" this game while it is free.

There is also a version of Word to Word (Word Link's alternate name, remember?) in the App Store, free but with numerous in-app purchases. The app has 4.5-star rating for the current version and a 4.5-star rating overall.

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.
