Amazon Appstore's free app of the day for Nov. 11, 2012: Stunt Bunnies Circus has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is Stunt Bunnies Circus.

Stunt Bunnies Circus is free, but ad-supported, 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.

Stunt Bunnies Circus is described as follows:
The Stunt Bunnies Circus is in town and Jet Bunny needs your help! Wow the crowd and pluck the tumbling circus rabbits from certain death.

Ringmaster Claude Reynard, like all sly foxes, cares little for the safety of the cute Stunt Bunnies troupe. With each show he introduces more fiendish death defining acts for them to perform. Fail in your task and they'll be cooked with the carrots.

Stunt Bunnies: Circus is the first in a series of cute, pick up and play action-packed games featuring cute Bunnies hell-bent on self-destruction whatever the setting.

With a single finger tap, players send Jet Bunny flying through the air to catch his falling furry long-eared friends. Chain together saves to score more points and land safely to earn your coins. The stunts will become more and more complex, involving cannons, tight ropes, flaming torches, lions and a variety of funny bunnies with different behaviours. There’s a small set of unlockable power ups that can make Jet Bunny's job easier: Crash mats, Fire jackets, Rocket fuel and the magical 'bullet-time' green carrot!
Stunt Bunnies Circus is rated at 3.9 stars in Google Play, and has 3.5 stars in the Amazon Appstore.

With these ratings, we'd say "buy" this app while it is free.

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.

The app also has a version in the App Store. There, it is $0.99, but has a number of in-app purchases. There is no rating for the current version, but overall, it has 4 stars.

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.
