Amazon Appstore's free app of the day for Nov. 22, 2012: Turkey Season has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is Turkey Season.

Turkey Season 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.

Turkey Season is described as follows:
Gobble gobble gobble! Turkeys are running amuck! It’s up to you to slay these delicious deviants and reload for seconds.

Don’t let a single fiendish turkey escape your crosshairs to claim the perfect hunt and relish the biggest feast. But before you even ponder white meat or dark, you’ll need to upgrade your skills, weapon, and ammo by bagging enough of those flying drumsticks.

Get ready for fast, addictive action in Turkey Season. Will it be feast or famine at your table?
Turkey Season is rated at 4.9 stars in Google Play, and has 2.6 stars in the Amazon Appstore.

The high rating in Google Play comes with only 10 overall, though. Still the 4.3 star rating in the Amazon Appstore comes with 20, so this game is a "buy" while it is free.

There is also a version in the iOS App Store. It is priced at $0.99 and has a 5-star rating 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.
