Amazon App Store Sale

It looks like Bla1ze — CrackBerry's new Editor in Chief — is sleeping in this morning (he's still getting the hang of this whole waking up early to blog thing), so here's a little FYI for all of you running the Amazon App Store on your BlackBerry 10 phone.

For today and Saturday, Amazon is giving away 30 paid Android apps for free!

At the time of this posting, I have not checked each app to see how it runs on BlackBerry 10, so be sure to test things out and drop a note in the comments with your results. And if you're not running the Amazon App Store on your phone, click here for a tutorial on how to install it. It looks like US, India, Australia and the UK are all supported regions for this sale. That said, it may also show up in other regions, so if you find the apps are on sale for you be sure to spread the word. And keep in mind, the Amazon App Store will soon be officially supported by BlackBerry, so you can consider loading it up as a head start.
