Ninety-nine cent Kindle Halloween games…and the Kindle Fire appstore
Amazon appears to be having a special right now on Halloween-themed Kindle games (the kind you play on the Kindle Keyboard, formerly the Kindle 3).
Before I list those, though, I do want to link you to the new Kindle Fire appstore on Amazon. I swear, I was planning to do a “Fire free” post today, but I think you’ll be interested. If you not, I’ll hit you with the ninety-nine cent Kindle Halloween games. If you aren’t interested in either…hang in there for the next post.
Similar to the
it’s a new storefront just for the Kindle Fire.
There are some interesting choices in the 47 games and apps Amazon has chosen to feature. I do want to note that these are apps in the Amazon appstore…they’d work on other devices as well. I have my Smartphone registered…if I didn’t, I don’t think I could actually get these apps at this point (if I was just waiting on a Fire).
One that caught my eye was
quite often…but why choose this free to feature on the Fire page? Perhaps that suggests strongly that the Fire will not have a built-in dictionary? That seems a bit odd, since my Kindle for Android has it on my phone.
Here’s a drawing app…I’ve seen questions about that:
Here’s an interactive kids’ book…including “read aloud”:
I’m sure many more will be added. Take a look at them and let me know what stands out to you.
Now, on to those cheap Halloween games for current Kindles…they are all ninety-nine cents (for some of them that’s a sale, and for some of them that appears to be normal):
As with other Active Content titles, they don’t work on the K1, but do work on K2s, K3s (now called a Kindle Keyboard), and the KDX. We don’t know about the Fire yet. They don’t work in reader apps, and I assume they can’t be purchased outside the US.
You can buy them once and share them with all compatible devices on the account.
If you try any of these, feel free to let me know what you think.
