For most of you Android user, you may have skipped over the fact that Amazon has released its own app market for Android devices. There has been other markets for downloading Android applications (such as App Brain) but they have fallen short to persuade the masses to explore alternative markets. Amazon has sweeten the pot by advertising  a free app a day. Apps like Fruit Ninja, Sound Hound and Angry Birds Rio have been featured.

So what does this mean for most Android users? Amazon is just another company trying to capitalize on the app craze, however those savvy to Amazon’s featured deals will benefit by getting cool free apps.

If you would like to sign-up and download Amazon’s App Market (click here).

Angry Birds

Not very surprising to see Angry Birds on this list. What is more fun than shooting birds at thieving goblin-pigs. What is so great about Angry Birds is that there is three games to solve and beat.

Original

Seasons

  • Rio-Download Rio from Amazon.com only. Rio is the new Angry Birds game that is only released on Amazon.com. You must download Amazon’s app market before downloading this game.
  • Wordfued-Wordfued was the first scrabble-like game on Android.

    Words With Friends-What makes Words With Friends exciting is the fact that you can play not only Android players but iPhones players as well.

    Stupid Zombies-Stupid Zombies’ game play is a mix of Pong and Angry Birds. As a Bruce Campbell like character, you have to figure out ways to bounce your bullets of walls to kill all the zombies in multiple levels.

    Texas Hold Em Pro-Like Texas Hold’em? then you will love this game. You can play others online in a number of tables with different buy-ins.
