Amazon Appstore's free app of the day for Dec. 14, 2012 is Magic Academy: Hidden Castle has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is Magic Academy: Hidden Castle.

Magic Academy: Hidden Castle is $2.99 in Google Play; it is normally priced at $2.99 at the Amazon Appstore. As we've noted before, there are sometimes differences in pricing and availability between the two marketplaces.

Magic Academy: Hidden Castle is described as follows:
Mysterious events have shocked the world of wizardry! A young student wizard named Annie has disappeared from the Higher Academy of Arwindale. Her little sister Irene decided to enroll at the Magic Academy and promised herself to find her sister no matter what. At first glance, it appeared that the friendly masters of the academy had something to hide. But eventually she realized that only real magicians could uncover the secrets held by this higher school of magic.

- Mysterious magic storyline

Magic Academy: Hidden Castle has 4.4 stars in Google Play and 4.0 stars in the Amazon Appstore.

An easy choice: we'd call this a "buy" while this is free.

There is also an HD version of the app in the iOS App Store. There it is priced at $4.99, and has 3.5 stars forthe current version and 4 stars overall.

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.
