    You can download it; it will tell you the permissions before you install it.

    According to their website it should show permissions prior to installing the app. I have not seen this personally.

    Yeah I know it does before installing. What I meant to say was before downloading the app can u see what the permissions are from the mobile app store on ur phone instead of going to amazon full website

    I'd also like to see update notes in app descriptions like most apps in the market.

    I think amazon writes the app description for the apps in the appstore, the dev writes them in the market.

    I installed Akinator and get a message on the home screen "No Network, Please check your internet connectiond" (connectiond ?). I don't know why since I'm getting 2 bars of 4G.

    I was playing around with the app and discovered the home page doesn't work when you tap "play" but if you tap "menu" and then "play" it will work.

    As Tumeg said, Akinator is pretty fun! :)

    Not $1.99 fun... but certainly free fun :)

    It guessed right on 2 of the 4 people I was thinking of, John Carter and Rand Al Thor. Couldn't get the real people right though, Rafer Alston and T.I.

    Reasonably fun though I can't see myself playing with it all that often and I'm sure it'll be uninstalled shortly.

    1 for 2. Success on George Clooney and it missed Alassane Ouattara.

    He guessed Alex Mercer and Niko Bellic pretty damn quick. Solid Snake took him a few tries tho.
    Found Belgian comedian Urbanus really quick, Belgian legend Jaques Brel took him ages.

    Mind you, I still can't install apps from the Amazon appstore, I just browsed to my good old web genius. Akinator has been around quite some time. And yeah, instead of paying $2 (well, not today ofc) you can just browse over to the website :p

    +1

    It got: Joseph Stalin, Steve Jobs, Clu (From TRON), and Joel Zimmerman
    It did not get: Armin van Buuren, and Amy Miles (I don't blame it... She's the CEO of Regal, and not very well known)

    EDIT: I'm uninstalling it right now... It's fun, but not really...

    I am not fond of this fragmentation of app stores. If someone else starts a store then I would have to go to 3 different places to upgrade the apps. I wonder how long Amazon will keep up the free app of the day?

    This site must have been down for awhile, couldn't access it all morning.


    APP FOR THE DAY IS

    X Construction $1.49 (today is FREE)

    Build bridges, not walls, with X Construction loaded on your Android (OS 2.1 or higher), and then send a train across your creation to see if it holds up under the pressure, or collapses into catastrophe. Representing a real-world twist on the addictive physics-based casual game genre, X Construction uses the materials and building principles of civil engineering as you try out new bridge designs and test their strength with fully loaded trains.

    amazon mp3 still gives out free song of the day. With more apps being developed all the time, I'm sure they could keep it up as long as android is around

    I'm getting pissed off by reviews comparing this game to world of goo. Sorta like comparing an android smartphone to a fisher price phone.

    It won't let me download Zenonia on my Evo 4g CM7 RC4. The list of top free apps is blank as well.

    I was able to download Zenonia 2 to my Inspire but the banner at the top listing the free app of the day was blank. The only reason I knew it was the free app today was because it was the #1 free app.
