Today's Fire Free App of the Day is Skateboard Party 2 plus a bonus app!

Today's Free App of the Day is Skateboard Party 2
Originally $1.99


The permissions in this skateboard game are so egregious, I'll start with warning you off. Read the reviews if you're curious. I wouldn't be surprised if Amazon didn't pull it at the request of the developer as they'll surely get a rash of one-stars today. From the product page: Skateboard Party 2 brings all the fun of skateboarding to your mobile device allowing you to ride in 8 completely unique locations. Jump on your board, learn new moves and improve your skateboarding skills to land sick combos. Play with your friends using the new online multiplayer mode or challenge skaters from all over the world using the online leaderboards. Complete achievements, gain experience and upgrade your favorite skater. You can also customize your outfits, boards, trucks and wheels with real brands. 

WARNING: This does NOT turn your Kindle Fire into a skateboard. :D

24 of 37 reviews are four stars and above.

So we have a bonus pick: FillUp - Gas Mileage Log.


A nice, simple but well done mileage log for your car. Sure, you can use a pen and paper...but this is a nice app. Once you start adding data, you can look at your log and see your miles-per-gallon overall as well as your best and worst tanks of gas, mileage wise. You can see the total miles driven since you started, the cost of fuel (total) and the average price you've paid. You can have multiple vehicles. And you can look at your data for the last month, the last 6 months, last 12 months, just this calendar year for all data. A solid four stars from me.

7 of 9 reviews are four stars and above.


Compatibility of apps varies. To tell if an app works for your Fire tablet or other Android device registered to your Amazon account, click on the above link and look on the right side of the web page for the "compatible devices" link.

Have fun!
