Given that the Google Play Store is a comprehensive source for Android applications one would think that there would be no need for another Android app store. Tell that to Amazon though, because it clearly felt the need to launch one, the Amazon Appstore happens to be the primary source of apps on the online retail giant’s hardware and is available for other Android devices as well. Amazon has a gift for those who use its Appstore, free applications worth $220.
With Christmas right around the corner there couldn’t be a better time to offer this gift to Android users. The Amazon Appstore is now also a native presence on BlackBerry devices, so that’s a whole new category of users that can graciously receive this gift from Amazon.
The app bundle has 40 applications of different categories, including but not limited to utilities, games, photo editors and more. Apps like Plex, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and The Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary are all included for free.
Apart from the free applications Amazon is also offering discounts on a wide variety of Amazon Instant Video titles, Kindle ebooks and its own mobile devices. Those who are only interested in the free applications need to know that this promotion is only being run from 24th December to 26th December.
