It wouldn’t be a 21st century Christmas without presents from Amazon — and we mean both
those ordered off the site for our friends and families and those
it has given to us for free. The online retailer is giving away 40
apps from the Amazon Appstore over the festive period worth up to
As usual with Amazon’s app giveaways, the apps on offer are a
mixed bag. This time around there are a bunch of classic games like
Worms 3 and Sonic the Hedgehog 2, which will
likely cast a sepia-hued nostalgic glow over your Christmas period.
More contemporary games are also available, of course, including
the likes of Angry Birds Space and Five nights at
Freddys. If you’re looking for something a little more slow
going on the gaming front, you can also immerse yourself in the
world of Construction Simulator or Farming
We’d also recommend that if you take advantage of the fact that
Terraria is free that you check out our need-to-know guide for the game.
Most of the apps that have been made available for free are
priced below the £5 mark on any other day, but one in particular
offers excellent value for money. The Muscular System Manual: The
Skeletal Muscles of the Human Body usually costs £41.42, but Amazon
is currently giving it to you for free. This is ideal for anyone
out there with an interest in medicine or physiology.
While all of these free apps are being given away by Amazon, you
can also take advantage of the offers if you have an Android device. In order
to do this you will need to download the Amazon Appstore app onto
that Android device.
The offer lasts only until the end of Boxing Day, which means if
you unwrap an Android or Amazon device tomorrow, you’ve got well
over 24 hours to stock up on freebies.
