When I posted the other day about the free game for your Kindle called Math Blender (click here or type in http://bit.ly/HVhLcY into your computer’s web browser to see it again or if you missed it), I received a lot of responses asking about other games that might be free for Kindles. Of course there are more that are free!
Kindle Fire Owners
For you Kindle Fire owners, there are quite a few apps out there that are free – not only games but for business and other entertainment things you can do with that little mini-computer called a Kindle Fire. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of free apps for your Fire and there is no way I can list them all. One easy way to do a sort is (either on your Fire or the Amazon website with a computer web browser) is to just go to the different categories: on the left-hands side are the Top 100 paid apps, and on the right-hand side are the Top 100 free apps for each category.
Amazon has a different “special” and heavily-promoted app that is free each day – my experience with the free app of the day is some of them are nice, some of them are great and others….well, let’s just say they leave a lot to be desired. One link you might bookmark and check periodically (if not everyday) is http://amzn.to/theappstore which will take you to the Amazon App store and each day’s free app is front and center on that page. If you like it and want to get it (for free, of course) is just click on the app’s icon then click the “Get now with 1-Click” icon on the app’s web page.
While I’ve got your attention, and taking a brief timeout for a shameless self-promotion plug, if you have a Kindle Fire or an Android phone or any other Android-type device, you can get the free app for this blog if you click here or type in http://amzn.to/freefireapp into your computer’s web browser. I have been stunned – and more than a little humbled – at the number of downloads! Keeping with the spirit of the blog, this app is free.
e-Ink Kindle Owners
If you have a regular Kindle (i.e., not a Kindle Fire), you have an e-Ink Kindle: there are quite a few games for you, also. While they don’t have the color feature or diversity offered by the Kindle Fire, most of them are very challenging and addictive – of course, not many games beat the Kindle Scrabble version for addiction factor, but that one costs money.
In addition to the Math Blender game mentioned at the beginning of this rambling post, here are 16 more you may enjoy (yes, they are free!):
