Amazon Appstore's free app of the day for Nov. 17, 2012: Tiny Monsters Deluxe has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is Tiny Monsters Deluxe.

Tiny Monsters (sans Deluxe) 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.

Tiny Monsters Deluxe is described as follows:

Tiny Monsters Deluxe is rated at 4.3 stars in Google Play, and has 2.8 stars in the Amazon Appstore.

The low rating in the Amazon Appstore is because the app is paid, but has in-app purchases. We'd pass, personally.

There is also a version of the app in the iOS App Store. There, the app is free, but has a number of in-app purchases. It has 4.5 stars overall and for the current version.

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.
