Amazon is preparing a new app service for Android. It’s called Unlocked, and think of it as free Amazon Prime for apps. But there’s a catch. Apps that are given freely can also be taken away again.

Who says iOS has all the apps? According to new data, Google isn’t just kicking butt when it comes to market share, but also mobile apps as well.

Amazon is giving away a whole bunch of Android apps again, and just like last time, there are several titles you won’t want to miss. In addition to games like Monopoly, Angry Birds Star Wars, and Riptide GP2, you’ll find AVG AntiVirus PRO, Xtralogic Remote Desktop, and BuildCalc — all completely free.
