Free and Bargain Apps for 1/4

We've got some great new apps for the Kindle Fire to show off this afternoon, but before we do let me say that the response to our Kindle Fire Giveaway continues to be stellar. We're at about 2,300 entries so far, and more keep coming in. At this point, it's clear that the odds favor someone who goes the extra mile by sharing on different places online, whether they be Facebook, forums, or groups. We appreciate all of your efforts and we're excited to award one of you a Fire!

We've also added a few more additions to our Fire Accessories page, getting into things like MiFi Mobile Hotspots and Portable Storage Drives. Definitely give it a look and see if there's anything you could use there.

There also a great new deal where you can get $5 in FREE MP3's with $50 in Textbooks. That's a good one to take advantage of or pass along to the student in your life.

Another great deal out there: you can get 50% off or More on Disney Video Games. There's a huge selection there that'll make any kid happy.

Now let's get into our featured apps! There isn't a more classic game out there, and now you can get PAC MAN on sale for just a couple bucks. Eating pellets, avoiding ghosts, navigating the maze, this is an easy game to get wrapped up in.

Price: $2.99 1.99
Description: From his rise in the 80s to his 30th anniversary appearance on Google's homepage, PAC-MAN has been a staple in pop culture for three decades. After all, who can forget the countless hours and quarters spent avoiding pesky ghosts, devouring delicious dots, and snacking on sweet fruit? Now PAC-MAN, the world-famous arcade classic, returns in this faithful rendition for Android--with the same spectral chases, quick decisions, and insatiably hungry yellow hero you know and love.

What? You want a story? It's PAC-MAN! Eat all the dots in the maze to move to the next stage while avoiding four ghosts. Eat Power Pellets to temporarily turn the ghosts blue and soften them up for snack time. Swallow them to send their eyes scurrying back to their base. Use their recovery time to snag all the dots in every corner of the maze. Eat the fruits and bonus items that appear for additional points and see how high you can score.
