Amazon Appstore's free app of the day for Feb. 5, 2013 is Magic Puzzles: Seasons

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

Magic Puzzles: Seasons not available in Google Play, but interestingly enough, is in Barnes and Noble's store for the Nook, priced at $2.99; 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 Puzzles: Seasons is described as follows:

Seasons is the one more delightful puzzles collection. This is excellent possibility to experience the whole scale of positive emotions: bright paints of autumn, the warm colors of summer, pacifying winter landscapes and inspiring panorama of spring. Sounds tempting, doesn't it? Then don't skip it!

  • 4 levels of complexity: 7x5 (35 pieces), 9x6 (54 pieces), 13x9 (117 pieces), 18x12 (216 pieces) - available for any puzzle.
  • Easy-to-operate control.
  • Move parts in groups.
  • Easy preview.
  • Rotate pieces to fit the right place.
Magic Puzzles: Seasons has a 3.5-stars in the Amazon Appstore.

We'd buy this while it was free.

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."
