Amazon Appstore celebrates its first birthday with a number of discounted apps
To celebrate their upcoming birthday, Amazon has recently announced that over the following week, they will be offering significant discounts on several of the most popular paid games and apps available. If you go at it today, you’ll find that the Android version of the popular Plants vs Zombies game is available today at a 67 percent discount.
The number of apps available on a discount will increase each day, and by the end of the Birthday Deals promotion, several popular titles will be offered for significantly less than their current price. According to the Amazon press release, these apps include Fruit Ninja, Wolfram Alpha, Splashtop Remote Desktop, Dr. Seuss’s The Shape of Me and Other Stuff, TuneIn Radio Pro, TETRIS, PAC-MAN, The Lost City, MONOPOLY, AccuWeather Platinum and Jamie Oliver’s 20 Minute Meals.
Also as part of the first Amazon Appstore birthday celebration, the retailer has announced that they will offer 8 free Amazon Kindle Fires in a sweepstakes you can join by the end of this month.
