Amazon’s Appstore for Android is the best place to get apps for an Amazon Fire Phone or tablet… but you can also install the Appstore on other Android devices. It also comes preloaded on new BlackBerry phones (which can run some Android apps).
Why would you want to load Amazon’s store on a device that already has access to the Google Play Store? Because Amazon makes a habit of giving away paid apps for free.
There’s a free app of the day… but today Amazon is offering dozens of free apps, including games such as Riptide GP2 and Another World and productivity apps including OfficeSuite Pro and the Swype keyboard.
Here are some of the day’s best deals.
