Download 5 free apps from Amazon and get $10 in virtual coins


Amazon really wants you to use its Android Appstore — so much so that it has recently been holding some fantastic giveaways. Its latest lets you bag $10 in virtual Amazon Coins for downloading five free apps.

It really is that simple; just download five free apps and Amazon will give you 1000 virtual coins — worth $10 — which you can then spend on anything you like (from the Amazon Appstore). They’re not terrible apps, either.

iHeartRadio is one of them, and it allows you to tune into live radio streams from a every genre you can think of and create custom stations from over 16 million songs — absolutely free. You can also enjoy on-demand episodes from the biggest names in news, sport, finance, and comedy and entertainment.

Food Network in the Kitchen, which gives you access to thousands of popular recipes, is another one of the apps — as is Don’t Step The White Tile, a crazy game that “tests your reflexes against time and movement.”

The other two downloads, Strawberry Shortcake Bake Shop and Dr. Panda’s Restaurant, are great games for the kids. Both get little fingers busy as they cook up and serve all kinds of tasty treats to virtual customers.

You’ll get 200 virtual coins for each title you download, so you don’t have to install all of them to bag the free cash if you really don’t want to. However, it seems to me you might as well — it’s easy to delete the ones you’ll never use later on.

Amazon’s offer ends on May 31. You’ll find all the apps included via the source link below. Don’t forget you’ll need the Amazon Appstore APK to install them on your Android device if you don’t already have it.
