Amazon Follows Android Market Sale with $.10 Apps but Needs to Think More About Kindle Fire

Yesterday word broke that the Google was putting some Apps in the Android Market Place on sale for a dime. Yep, $.10. Not surprisingly Amazon followed suit today putting some Apps on sale for the same paltry dime. You can check out which ones at this link.

Unfortunately, (unless I’m missing something) it’s nigh on near impossible to find the list of $.10 Apps on the Kindle Fire. Which means you need to download the version on the web and have it sent to your Kindle Fire. Note also that many of these Apps are listed as Android Apps and only one in the list I see says Kindle Fire edition. Most of the non Kindle Fire versions may work just fine (hey, it’s only a dime, right), but Apps optimized for the Kindle Fire obviously perform much better on that device. I’ve actually downloaded a few Apps that don’t work on the Fire, but have later seen updates that make them work on that device. A Charlie Brown Christmas is one of those.

I imagine Amazon will come around to this at some point, given how new the Kindle Fire is.

    The link goes to the list of most popular apps by sales rank over the last 24 hours, not the link to the apps on sale for $0.10, although many of them are here on this list.

    And if you are logged in to Amazon, your devices and their compatibility to an app you are viewing is listed in a space on the right. If you own a Kindle Fire, it should be in the list. Only two of your devices are listed, so if you own more than 2 Android devices, you may have to click the nearby link to see the rest of your devices.
