Amazon.com has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today’s app is 9 Innings: 2013 Pro Baseball.
9 Innings: 2013 Pro Baseball is free, but ad-supported, in Google Play (you can remove the ads with an in-app purchase). It is normally priced at $0.99 in the Amazon Appstore. As we’ve noted before, there are sometimes differences in pricing and availability between the two marketplaces.

9 Innings: 2013 Pro Baseball is rated at 4.6 stars in Google Play, and has 2.0 stars in the Amazon Appstore.
Why the big difference between the two markets? 51 1-star ratings out of 70 (in the Amazon Appstore) will do that to your overall rating. The issue: permissions.
To be clear, that 4.6-star rating in Google Play comes with over 127,000 overall. With these ratings, we’d say “buy” this app while it is free.
The app is also available in the iOS App Store. There it is free, but with a number of in-app purchases. The app has a 4.5-star rating both overall and for the current version.
We continue to be disappointed with the FAOTD program. It began promisingly enough, with Angry Birds Rio, but we’ve gotten tired of the endless games or niche apps, and especially apps which have no uptake in Google Play, and seem to be FAOTD as a desperation move by the developer.
We’d like to see free versions of say, Office-compatible software or useful utilities such as CalenGoo instead of niche apps or endless games (we just assume every day that it’s going to be a game; it’s gotten that bad).
Amazon.com opened up the Appstore despite a lawsuit by Apple, which has previously trademarked the term “App Store.” Microsoft has filed an appeal against that trademark, saying the term is too generic. Amazon.com has responded to the lawsuit in the same manner.
