How to get paid apps for free on Android

google play aniversario androidability - How to get paid apps for free on AndroidWe love apps. We love free apps. And we love paid apps that cost nothing most of all. But we don’t like pirates, so if you have an eye patch on your face and a parrot on your shoulder, be gone with ye! Having said that, there’s plenty of legal ways to get paid apps for free for your Android so today we’re going to share a few with you.

Amazon App of the Day

The Amazon Appstore may be the oft-forgotten little brother of the Google Play Store, but one of the great things about Amazon being second best is that they offer up a free app every day to drag your attention away from Google’s monster market. You have options on how to get this, just hit theAmazon Appstore online to see the App of the Day listed up the top, download the Amazon Appstore app or grab a notification app like Free App Notifier for Amazon (note, it only works for the US Amazon Appstore right now) for daily alerts.

AppGratis is one of my favorite apps because every morning I’m greeted by another new app for free. There’s no overload of offers – just one app a day – curated by Sam the ever comical developer with the bad jokes. Sometimes the free apps offered by AppGratis won’t be eligible for updates, so keep that in mind, and not every free app offered ever cost anything in the first place! Nevertheless, the AppGratis deals just keep coming and there’s often some real gems in there.

Google Play surveys

We’ve written about Google’s free Play Store credit in exchange for answering surveys before. If you’re not aware of it yet, Google offers it’s very own rewards program because, well, they want even more information about you and your habits. Simply install the Google Opinion Rewards app, fill in a short survey and collect your coinage. You’re limited to one survey a week (so you can’t exactly retire early), and I’ve seen reports that you don’t always get paid for every survey, but you can earn up to a dollar per survey. Not bad for a few minutes of your time. There’s another app called Get Paid Apps Free that has you watch short videos or download selected apps in exchange for credit that can be cashed out to buy other apps in the Play Store.
