App of the Day is now defunct.

It appears that Amazon is no longer doing the Free App of the Day program. As such I’m taking down the automation, and putting this notice up. If it goes up again, I’ll do my best to put up another tool.

I had fun developing this, drop a line or a donation if this was useful for you.

New Locale Support for the App of the Day for Canada!

I’ve added international encoding and locale support for Canada to the Amazon App of the Day feed. Here is the link:

Canada (English): http://www.geekexile.com/amazon_rss-ca.xml

Please note: This reflects the locale for Canada. This is NOT simply a translation! Amazon also occasionally offers different apps each day for each locale.

If you have a particular locale you would like added, please let me know.

GeekExile.com presents: Amazon’s Free App a Day Service, as an RSS Feed.

Amazon recently started up a new service for Android owners, a competitor to the Android market.

They’ve begun offering a “Free App a Day” service for their market, located here: http://amazon.com/apps

However, there’s no RSS feed or easy way to check the free app. So, I’ve written a web crawler to do it for you, and attached it to an RSS feed.

Simply click the RSS icon here:

You can then add the RSS feed to your favorite reader.
