Amazon Appstore's free app of the day for Oct. 28, 2012: Face Frenzy: Monster Edition has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is Face Frenzy: Monster Edition.

Face Frenzy: Monster Edition is not available 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.

Face Frenzy: Monster Edition is described as follows:
Use your creative makeover skills to pretty up gory ghouls in Face Frenzy: Monster Edition. If you thought getting ready for a night out on the town was tough, imagine how hard it must be for Frankenstein. These faces don't just stich themselves! Help a monster out.

Monster Makeover

All of these monsters are in a frenzy to get their faces ready for a night out on the town. Stitches need sewing and fangs need sharpening. Use a variety of tools to remedy everything from unique monster ailments to typical annoyances, like pimples and runny noses.

While you work your magic, do your best to keep them in a good mood before it's time to go. Nobody wants to leave grumpy; it will ruin the night. Keep track of your high scores, which depend on how quickly you work--so work fast. These are three monsters you definitely don't want to disappoint.

Use a variety of tools and vibrant colors to fix these scary monster faces. Get creative and have fun. Choose from three classic characters and move through various difficulty levels.
Face Frenzy: Monster Edition has 1.9 stars in the Amazon Appstore.

This is the fourth day of Amazon's week of Halloween-related free app of the day selections (and they haven't been stellar apps). We'd say skip this app, despite it being free.

There is a version of the app in the iOS App Store.  It is priced at $0.99, but does not have enough ratings to display.

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.
