Amazon Appstore's free app of the day for March 13, 2013: Pocket League Story has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is Pocket League Story.

Pocket League Story is priced at $4.99 in Google Play; it is normally priced at $4.99 at the Amazon Appstore. As we've noted before, there are sometimes differences in pricing and availability between the two marketplaces.

Pocket League Story is described as follows:
Handpick players, train, and battle your way to the top of every league in this sensational soccer team simulation!

Sell merch, erect a gym--even a stadium! Your fanbase will grow as you conquer your rivals and snag the hottest sponsors! The sky's the limit in your quest for ultimate soccer stardom!

As the crowd erupts in jubilation and the screams of "Goal!" echo throughout the stadium, will your team stand victorious? Try your hand at being a soccer team manager and find out!
Pocket League Story has a 4.5-star rating in Google Play; it has a 4.0-star rating in the Amazon Appstore.

"Buy" this one while it is free. The game must be superb if it has over 2,000 ratings on Google Play despite the $4.99 price.

There is also a version in the iOS App Store. There, it is priced at $3.99 and has 4.5 stars for the current version and 4.0-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). 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. has responded to the lawsuit in the same manner.

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