The Best Free Android Apps in Amazon's Two-Day Giveaway

Illustration for article titled The Best Free Android Apps in Amazon's Two-Day Giveaway

The Amazon Appstore already gives away one free app each day, but now it's gone and decided to give away 30 apps, worth a combined total of $100, for free to anyone with an Android phone. Here are the pick of the bunch that you should download first.


The "Epic Summer App Bundle" giveaway is only on today and tomorrow, so you should grab them while you can. Head to the bottom of the page if you need to know how to get the Amazon Appstore on your phone (remember, this isn't Fire specific—anyone using Android can take advantage).




If you don't own a Kindle Fire, you'll need to install the Amazon Appstore for Android on your phone before you can take advantage. Fortunately it's pretty easy sailing. Go to Settings and navigate to Unknown sources option (which is under Applications or Security, depending on your device). If Unknown sources is unchecked, tap the checkbox and hit OK.

Then, head to this link to get the app. When the app's downloaded, open your notifications and then tap the file called AmazonApps-release.apk. Tap install, then tap open and you're done. Phew! Now go get some free stuff.

Usually I don't grab Amazon App Store apps because of their business practices of giving small and independent devs the shaft with these sorts of deals, but a couple of these I can justify today. Especially the shovelware games (hey, sometimes we all need a dumb, stupid break from the monotony of the 8-5 grind).

I just wish I didn't have to use that goddamn Amazon Store app to install. Please, just give me the damn apk download link from the website...
