Among the most interesting of the freebies at the moment is Plex for Android, which is a $4.99 app Amazon available for free. Judging by the complaints in the reviews, though, it’s a good few versions older than the one on Google Play. In this case I guess you get the speed of updates you’re paying for.
Root Explorer, a $3.99 (well worth it) app makes an appearance. If you need a root file management application, this is one of the golden standards. Based on the reviews the updates are also lagging significantly behind on Amazon that are being pushed out to Google Play.
Splashtop Remote Desktop HD, a program coming in $8.99 which allows you to control your desktop via your Android device along with capabilities to watch videos and play games. I don’t know how good it is at that, but I recall a while back when Netflix was not available on Android this was a workaround.
Along with those great utilities Amazon is offering Cartoon Network’s Card Wars (an Adventure Time game,) Notepad+, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, The Room Two (this one is not tearing me apart Lisa,) Dr. Panda’s Bus Driver, Wedding Dash Deluxe, AccuWeather Platinum, Ravensword: Shadowlands, Sudoku 10’000 Plus, Pho.to Lab PRO, Informant 3, Business Calendar, Jump Desktop, CrossMe Premium, Enigmatis: The Ghosts of Maple Creek, EZ Money Manager, MobiLearn Talking Phrasebook, English-French-German-Italian-Spanish, CLARC, Dungeon Village, aCalendar+, Travel Interpreter, MyBackup Pro, Pinball Deluxe Premium, Loco Motoros, PUZZINGO Puzzles, 2DO Task List, Real Shangai Mahjong, and League of Heroes Premium.
You’ve got until the end of Saturday to cash in on this. If you don’t currently have the Amazon Appstore installed to grab the free app of the day, as long as you have an Amazon account you can “purchase,” the free items and download them at a later time. I’m currently guilty of having purchased nearly every free app of the day that I’ve remembered to do it since the Appstore came out, clocking in at nearly 700 apps.
