Amazon has been handing out free apps for a while now with its Free App of the Day promotion, but now that promo has come to an end. That doesn’t mean that Amazon’s not giving out free apps, though.
Amazon Underground is the retailer’s new initiative to give out apps that it calls “Actually Free,” which means that both the app itself is free as are its in-app items. Amazon says that its Underground program offers more than $10,000 in apps, games, and in-app items for free. Some of the free apps that are on offer are OfficeSuite Professional 8, Goat Simulator, Cut the Rope 2, and Jetpack Joyride.
Amazon also says that Underground is a “long-term program” that will continue to gain benefits. However, the company hasn’t elaborated on what else might be added.
In order to install Amazon Underground on your Android device, you need to enable app installs from unknown sources in your Settings, navigate to Amazon.com/Underground, and then download the Amazon Underground app. The app is actually a replacement for the regular Amazon app that includes the regular Amazon store as well as the Underground section with free apps.
The change to Amazon Underground appears to be a way for Amazon to highlight a bunch of apps that are always free and without any in-app purchases, which some folks can find annoying. If you want to check out Amazon Underground and its selection of free apps for yourself, hit up the link below.
