The highly regarded strategy game UniWar HD is free on Amazon's AppStore today: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008BIN9EW?ie=UTF8&ref=mas_...

Hopefully the link works. If not, please let me know and I will update it. Enjoy!

I'm a quitter. I come from a long line of quitters. It's amazing I'm here at all.

Thanks. I normally check the free app of the day everyday, but would have missed this one- which would have stunk because it's the first one in a long while that has looked interesting.

Yep, Amazon's free app has been largely garbage for most of the year.

The funny thing about UniWar is that it's been around for awhile and has rarely been improved upon.

Anyway to obtain an Amazon app without installing the Amazon Appstore first? I going to be giving a tablet as a gift for Christmas and would love to put this on it, but I don't have the tablet yet.

I tried to do this before my tablet arrive, but to no avail. If you have a friend with an android device, you could ask him to install the app, run it, then uninstall it. After that, Amazon should allow you to "purchase" their free apps using your account.

Thanks for the suggestion.

I'm a little unclear on how accounts are managed on Android devices. This device will be a Google Nexus. If I somehow am able to purchase apps from Amazon using my account, will the gift receiver be able to install those apps, even if they have their own Amazon account?

"Buy" the app now on the Amazon website (one click if you're logged in). Whenever you get a new Android device in future, install the Appstore and you'll be able to install any apps in your Amazon account.

If you're giving the tablet to someone else, you'll need to get them to buy it using their Amazon account, which might give away the surprise a bit I guess.

Looks like I got a free $1 Amazon MP3 download promo credit for "buying" Uniwar for $0.00!

Unless they've changed things, I don't think you can make an app purchase unless you have a device registered with them first.
