Free, Discounted, and New Apps!

In case you're visiting us for the first time today, don't miss our earlier post about using microphones with the Kindle Fire.

Also, you'll find a new round of exciting Cyber Monday Week Deals on Electronics, Camera Equipment, and Movies & TV!

Here we'll be featuring a few irresistible little apps that will leave your wallet well enough alone. The first is a free Bejeweled-type game.

Name: Jewels
Rating: 3.6 stars over 19 reviews
Price: 0.00
Description: In Jewels you must line up three (or, better yet, four or five) identical jewels and eliminate them from the board. The longer you make your string, the higher your score. Each time you complete a matching string, the board is repopulated with jewels. Find another place to line up at least three jewels and do it again. Collect bonuses and rack up enough points to move on to the next level.

Get Jewels for free!

This next app is a *new release* from Disney that is getting some amazing reviews. Geared for younger audiences, this puzzle game looks like a sure winner.

Name: Where's My Water?
Rating: 4.8 stars over 25 reviews
Price: 0.99
Description: All poor Swampy the Alligator wants to do is take a refreshing shower in his lair beneath the city. Is that so wrong? Unfortunately, his water supply has been blocked by a variety of pesky obstacles. Your job is to carve a path that will deliver Swampy the precious liquid he needs in the entertaining Disney game Where's My Water?

Lastly, I've been waiting for a chance to show off this impressive app, and the time has finally come. One of Amazon's discounted apps, Read It Later, allows you to save articles and read them later. Very useful, and for a limited time you can get it for 50% off!

Name: Read It Later Pro
Rating: 3.9 stars over 148 reviews
Price: $2.99 1.49
Description: Browsing through your Twitter feed in the morning, you come across a link to an article about up-and-coming bands in the New Orleans music scene. A major fan, you've got the Revivalists on your iPod and you think they must play this stuff in heaven. You'd love to stop and read more, but it's 7:30 and you have to be on the road. Sadly, you'll be busy and offline for most of the day, and may forget where you saw the article before you have another moment to yourself online. As you put your mobile in your pocket, you wish there were a way to save that page to read offline, in case you happen to catch some down time on the road.
