If you’ve never used the Amazon App Store before, now could be a good time to start, since the company is giving away over $110 in Paid Apps and Games for free until May 16, 2015.

What do you get? It’s a solid list of apps, covering games and handy utilities. Here are a few that are certainly worth picking up for the grand total of $0. The popular Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series is included, along with Five Nights at Freddy’s 3, Sorcery! 3, Angry Birds Seasons, and Bloons TD 5. 

If you’re not looking for games, check out the Flesky Keyboard, AVG AntiVirus Pro, Alarm Clock Xtreme, and PicShop Photo Editor. To grab any of Amazon’s free titles, you’ll have to install the Amazon Appstore app on your Android phone first, and it’s ready for download here

The offer of free apps is always tempting, but it’s worth sticking around Amazon’s store when the offer ends. When it launched in March 2011, the Appstore only had 4,084 apps and games available for download, but over the last few years things have improved, and now has more than 400,000 apps and games available globally.

The Appstore is installed as standard on Amazon’s Kindle Fire tablets, Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, and Fire phone devices, which don’t come with Google Play or Google’s services. Almost any Android phone is compatible with the store, and it can also be used on non-Android phones, such as BlackBerry.

Don’t hang around before taking advantage of Amazon’s offer, because it’ll all be over in two days time. You can browse through the full list of free apps and games here. The last time the Amazon Appstore held a similar promotion was in March, when it celebrated the store’s fourth anniversary.
