Amazon Appstore's free app of the day for Jan. 15, 2013: Glow Puzzle Ad Free

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

GlowPuzzle Ads Free is priced at $0.99 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.

GlowPuzzle Ads Free is described as follows:
GlowPuzzle is an extremely addicting game! The goal is to connect all the dots in the puzzle using a continuous path but you are not allowed to reuse any completed path. There are up to 380 brain teasing levels available to keep you challenged in this game.

Not familiar with Glow Puzzle? It’s been a big hit among phone users alike. The mobile version has been downloaded over 5,000,000 times with an average rating of 4.5 out of 5. Check it out!


Over 2150 brain teasing levels from very easy to extremely difficult,
Regular updates,
Animated ’Solution’ in case you’re stuck,
Amazing glow graphics,
Ordered puzzle difficulty,
Undo possibility,
Easy level selection,
SD and HD resolutions,
Challenge mode,
Memory Mode.


More levels,
New game modes,
New level selector
And more...
GlowPuzzle Ads Free has a 4.6-star rating in Google Play and a 3.4-star rating in the Amazon Appstore.

With that, we'd buy this while it's free.

The app has a version in the App Store, as well. It is priced at $0.99 and has a 4-star rating overall and 4.5-stars 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).

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.

Apple has already lost a portion of that lawsuit, which said Amazon.com had participated in "false advertising."
