Amazon.com just launched a store for Android smartphone apps, and in celebration are letting people download Angry Birds for free today. They also said the Android version of the app will now be available exclusively from the Amazon AppStore. Although this already beloved app will return to it’s normal price of $0.99 after today, there will be different free apps available each day. This will not only draw customers to the new AppStore, but will also help promote unknown apps that deserve the attention. Plus, who doesn’t like free apps? Everyone wins here.
Except Apple, who just sued Amazon in attempt to stop the online retailer from using the name “AppStore”.
