Today's Fire Free App of the Day is Splashtop Remote Desktop and a bonus app: Smash Hit

Today's Free App of the Day is Splashtop Remote Desktop
Originally $4.99


This is an app that allows you to access your computer remotely. I've tried it in the past (it was first offered as the Free App of the Day in 2012) and it worked well. However, top viewer Robert Reese and many other reviewers have security concerns here. I don't think I can recommend this app. There are paid apps such as Logmein that are very well rated that do the same thing. Perhaps we should have been warned by the fact that there's a typo in the graphic Amazon used on the Free App of the Day page--Desktop is spelled "Dekstop." And so we have a KBoards Alternate App of the Day.

1859 of 2170 reviews are four stars and above.

So we have a bonus pick: Smash Hit.


This is a fun endless runner. You flick balls to smash pieces that are in your way or to open doors. There are checkpoints, so if you progress to a certain level, you don't have to start from scratch. It's attractive, and the difficulty builds relatively slowly, allowing you to get used to the game. A keeper! Rate it five stars.

1926 of 2106 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!
