Amazon Gives Away Android Apps for Halloween
Amazon is offering a great new way to burn off the sugar high you might incur from candy goods you would gorge on for the Halloween. The online retailer is rolling out a different way of trick or treat for the day.
Into the spooky spirit, the company is giving a rare and special treat to consumers. Amazon has announced that it is giving away free Android apps for smartphones or tablets that are of course using the operating system.
Amazon is giving away a total of 39 app titles for free this Halloween. This promotion would last only for today, November 1. Thus, customers are advised to take advantage of the offer right away before the day lasts.
A way to bolster app store
The company is is pulling the stops to finally entice more consumers to purchase apps from its Amazon App Store instead of Google Play. This is a logical idea.
When a consumer purchases enough apps over Amazon App Store, he would be more reliant on Amazon when getting updates or installations in the future for his Android devices. Take it as a ploy to hook you into Amazon ecosystem. It could also be a way for the company to persuade you to choose and buy a Fire device.
