Amazon Appstore's free app of the day for Jan. 25, 2013 is PetWorld 3D: My Animal Rescue

Amazon.com has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is PetWorld 3D: My Animal Rescue.

PetWorld 3D: My Animal Rescue is not available in Google Play; it is normally priced at $3.99 at the Amazon Appstore. As we've noted before, there are sometimes differences in pricing and availability between the two marketplaces.

PetWorld 3D: My Animal Rescue is described as follows:
ANIMAL CARE

Many of your rescues didn't always have it easy in their lives, but luckily they at least found their way to you. After an initial examination to determine current health conditions and to establish any necessary treatment, life in the animal rescue can begin. Take care of your little friend with food and water and make sure that they always have fresh litter. When they have everything they need, pretty soon they'll feel fit as a fiddle again!

FIND A NEW HOME

Of course the animals are in the best possible hands with you, but they do eventually need a real home. As soon as the head of the animal rescue, a grumpy professor, puts you in charge of the animal adoption process, it's your job to find the most suitable new animal owner. When you pay attention to the animal's needs and the owner's preferences, nothing can stand in the way of their happiness.

FANTASTIC 3D GRAPHICS

"PetWorld 3D: My Animal Rescue" is not only a lot of fun and addictive, it's also visually pleasing. Move through the impressive 3D world of the animal rescue while scooping water out of the well or getting the right food. When you visit the animals you can also of course see them at close range and can observe how the hamsters clean themselves or how the bunnies hop around. You'd rather keep your rescues forever!
PetWorld 3D: My Animal Rescue has a 4.1-star rating in the Amazon Appstore.

We'd say buy this while it is free.

There is a version in the iOS App Store, with a 4.5-star rating overall and a 3.5-star rating for the current version, also priced at $3.99.

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."
