The summer has just begun, so why not kick it off by downloading a bunch of Android apps? Amazon is giving away $50 of apps and games for free from now through July 1.

The best deal is AVG AntiVirus PRO Android Security, which normally goes for $12. Another cool one is Mirroring360 — AirPlay Receiver, which will let you mirror an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch to other Android devices, including Fire TV, through Apple’s AirPlay feature. That one normally goes for $7. Those of you that like to track the weather will love Weather Live, which normally goes for $2.

As far as games go, you will find Exiles (regular price $7), The Bard’s Tale (regular price $3), and Quell Memento (regular price $3) all on sale.

Here’s the full rundown:



Since these apps and games are from the Amazon Appstore (not Google Play), you will need the Amazon Appstore app on your device. It’s already pre-installed on the Fire phone as well as Fire tablets. All other Android users will need to download the app, of which you can find here.

Also remember, that the Amazon Appstore app must remain on your device in order to continue to use these apps and receive updates. It’s a bit of a pain, but you won’t have to repurchase these titles when moving to another device, since they will be associated with your Amazon account.

Click here to download these apps and games directly from Amazon. Remember, you only have until July 1, so do it now, because you know you will forget later.
