We used to have a Kindle Fire. It was first generation and fizzled after a couple of years. We had built up quite a collection of apps through the Amazon App Store. I was disappointed when we lost the Kindle.
However! I found out we could still access our apps by downloading the Amazon App store on our Android devices and setting those devices to allow apps from other sources than the Google Play Store. So, now we have our apps and can still access the Amazon App Store for three FREE app of the day and more.
Amazon has started this coin thing with apps and music. You can earn coins (which you can in turn use to pay for apps) when you purchase certain apps. It’s like they are giving you money back when you purchase an app.
1 coin = 1 penny. When you get 99 coins, you can buy a $.99 app, etc.
Here are my top ten favorite apps with the coin rewards. These are paid apps, but totally worth the money, in my opinion (and you get rewarded with coins when you buy them!!!).

Caillou Let’s Pretend ($.99 and earn 30 coins)
Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood: Play at Home with Daniel ($1.99 and earn 60 coins)
