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

Kunundrum is $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.

Kunundrum is described as follows:

Kunundrum is rated at 4.5 stars in Google Play, and has 4.6 stars in the Amazon Appstore.

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

There is also a version in the iOS App Store. It is free, and is ranked at 4.5 stars for the current version and 4.5 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).

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.
