Amazon Appstore's free app of the day for Dec. 12, 2012: Fruit Devil Full

Amazon.com has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is Fruit Devil Full.

The non-Full Fruit Devil is free in Google Play; it is normally priced at $0.99 at the Amazon Appstore. As we've noted before, there are sometimes differences in pricing and availability between the two marketplaces.

Fruit Devil Full is described as follows:
Help feed Fruit Devil!

This is the paid version.no ads and other promotion stuff compare to lite version
An egg has just hatched in prehistoric time and a small devil has emerged... he is hungry. help feed him to make him survive in the jungle.

tap to jump over obstacles, predators, and grab all the bonuses you find to get as far as you can in the game.

But remember, keep eating fruits or Fruit Devil will starve!

let us know if you have any suggestion or problems.
Fruit Devil (the free version) has 4.6 stars in Google Play and the Full version has 3.2 stars in the Amazon Appstore.

Since it's free, and based on the Play Store rating, we'd call this a "buy" while this 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.

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).

Amazon.com 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. Amazon.com has responded to the lawsuit in the same manner.
