Today's Free App of the Day is Space Match Deluxe
Originally $2.00

This is a match-3 game in the style of Bejeweled. Overall reviews are not great, though. It's probably worth trying out as the Free App of the Day, some reviewers liked it more than others, but it had no five-star reviews and only 2 four-star reviews. And so we have a bonus app.

2 of 8 reviews are four stars and above.

So we have a bonus pick: Chimani National Parks.

This app contains an overview of the national park system. You can view parks by category--historical park, parks, monuments, battlefields, memorials, historical site, parkway, recreation, preserve, seashore, lakeshore, river, scenic trail or miscellaneous. Clicking through to a specific location gives a rather complete history of the location. You can click within a location to see the location on a map and then go back easily to the description. By clicking on the star at the top of a location, you can add it to a wishlist, or, if you've already visited it, the year you visited it, which adds a little passport-style stamp to the page with the year you visited it. You can link to FB or Twitter, though there's no big push to do so. You can share locations by FB or Twitter or email. The only thing I don't like about the apps is there's no way to jump directly back to the initial menu--you have to keep hitting "back." A minor nitpic. You can work between the map showing locations and the descriptions of those locations. In addition, there are many Chimani app guides for specific national parks. They are chock-full of information, with downloadable maps, information about hiking, safety, parking, restrooms, trails, photos, camping, tide charts and much, much more. You can search the information for a specific item (In the Acadia NP, Maine app, I searched for "Jordan" to find the Jordan Pond House, a favorite). To my delight, birding was also one of the possible menu choices. There are a ton of these, you can find the full list here, but they include: Rocky Mountains Yellowstone Bryce Canyon Great Smoky Mountains Olympic National Park Grand Canyon Yosemite and more.... I'm going to basically be adding all of these to my cloud for future trips. 21 of 25 reviews are four stars and above.

These apps are compatible with the original Fire and with my Fire HD 8.9" 4G. To tell if an app works for your Fire HD or other Android device registered to your Amazon account, click on the above link and look on the right side of the web page. Amazon will tell you if it will work with your registered device.

Have fun!
