Amazon Appstore's free app of the day for Jan. 31, 2013: Word Puzzle for the Soul

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

Word Puzzle for the Soul 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.

Word Puzzle for the Soul is described as follows:

Word Puzzle for the Soul has a 5.0-star rating in Google Play and has 4.6-stars in the Amazon Appstore.

The 5.0-star rating in Google Play comes from only four, overall, but the Amazon Appstore number comes with 66 reviews. We'd buy this while it was free.

A version of the app is also available in the iOS App Store. There, it is priced at $0.99 but has not received enough ratings to display.

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."
