Amazon Appstore's free app of the day for Oct. 24, 2012: Ghost Radar: LEGACY has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is Ghost Radar: LEGACY.

Ghost Radar: LEGACY 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.

Ghost Radar: LEGACY is described as follows:
Ghost Radar attempts to detect paranormal activity. Working on the same principle as traditional paranormal detection equipment, the app employs your mobile device's sensors to measure electromagnetic fields, sounds, and vibrations. But while traditional tools are easily fooled by bursts of normal electromagnetic energy, stray vibrations, and background sounds, Ghost Radar sets itself apart by analyzing its readings and indicating hits only for interesting patterns.

Detecting and Recording Activity

To improve your chances of finding paranormal signatures, the app enables you to easily adjust its sensitivity to control for noise. Collected information can be displayed either numerically or graphically, appearing similar to a radar display. Any interesting words it detects are repeated by a recorded voice and logged for future reference. Directions and an FAQ can be found in the Menu.

Please note that there is no guarantee of Ghost Radar's accuracy since results cannot be verified scientifically. The app should be used for entertainment purposes only.
Ghost Radar: LEGACY has a 4.2-star rating in Google Play and has 3.9 stars in the Amazon Appstore.

Agreement, or close enough, between the two stores, so we'd say "buy" this game while it is free.

There is a version of the app in the iOS App Store.  It is priced at $0.99 and has  a rating of 4 stars (current) and 3 stars (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.
