Everybody loves free apps. Unfortunately, there aren’t THAT many opportunities to catch app giveaways via the Play Store. But we have always had the Amazon App Store to thank for picking up the slack. With their free giveaways and random bundles of free apps, we were always able to get some of the best apps and games without paying a dime.
Today, Amazon introduced Amazon Underground. Instead of the traditional Amazon App Store, this one features apps that “are actually free.” When Amazon says these apps are “actually free” they mean that not only is the up-front cost of the app free, but also that there are no in-app purchases that you need to worry about.
In order to get your hands on over $10,000 worth of apps, you need to download the new/updated version of the Amazon App Store. Since you can’t download the app via the Play Store, you’ll have to download it from Amazon directly. Before you do that, you need to ensure that the Security Settings on your device are set correctly.
- Open up your Settings app
- Navigate to Security or Applications
- Check Unknown Sources
Once this is done, head over to the Amazon Underground page, and enter your phone number or email address and you will be provided with a link. Once downloaded, you will be asked to sign into your Amazon account, and you’re on your way to all the apps you could want, and more.
As we stated above, there are over $10,000 worth of apps available via Amazon Underground, for free. From Goat Simulator and Fruit Ninja, to productivity apps, such as OfficeSuite Professional and mSecure Password Manager, there are loads of apps to grab.
