Amazon Appstore's free app of the day for Oct. 28. 2012: Wonder Witches (Ad-Free) has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is Wonder Witches (Ad-Free).

Wonder Witches is only available in Google Play in ad-supported form. 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.

Wonder Witches (Ad-Free) is described as follows:
Woohoooo! Welcome to the world of Wonder Witches! This is the full version without advertisements. Collect magical potions, unlock witches with special broomsticks and enjoy the scenery. Watch out for those clouds in the sky and most important, have fun!

(1) Unlock additional witches;
(2) Broomsticks with magical powers;
(3) Changing backgrounds while you fly and progress through the world. Can you make it to the moon?
(4) Collect potions to gain magical powers
(5) Fun sound effects and graphics!

Feel free to reach out to the developer and provide feedback!

About the developer:
Wonder Witches is built by Johann Digital Works, an indie dev. Design and implementation takes place during the night and on weekends as the developer has a fulltime job. The creation is done out of the passion for games!!!

Enjoy the game and please provide feedback and if you like it, please tell your friends and family about it! Thank you very much and have fun playing!
Wonder Witches (Ad-Free) has 4-stars in ad-supported form in Google Play, and has 3.5 stars in the Amazon Appstore.

This is the fiftb day of Amazon's week of Halloween-related free app of the day selections (and they haven't been stellar apps). Still, the ratings are high enough; we'd "say buy" this app, while it is 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.
