    Shazam Encore (the pay version) is free on Amazon right now

    For the next 8 hours, Shazam Encore (normally $5) is free on the Amazon App Store. Which is irritating to no end for me since I bought the bloody thing yesterday.

    Oh well -- I love this App. Great for identifying a song on the radio or in a movie.

    Amazon just about made sure I don't buy another app for my Droid. With them giving away something free everyday, I just have to wait it out.

    In a way, I think Amazon just set the Android market back a few steps. Which is probably why devs go to Apple first to make money.
    Facts are the very first casuality of bad information.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again, as a consumer I really like the Amazon Appstore but I would never put my pay-for app on there.

    The only reason I can see putting an app on the Amazon app store is to prove that it's "safe" because Amazon polices their app store.

    I downloaded Shazam a long time ago when it was free. I'm now grandfathered in. Is this Shazam Encore the exact same thing as the old Shazam? Should I uninstall my version and get this one?

    If it's still updating I wouldn't bother. If it's not updating..or your not sure...or just for giggles...I would back up my current version with Titanium backup..and check out this one. Compare the two, and see what works best. That way you can always get your "grandfathered" version back if you want.

    Simply reinstalling the one from the market and signing into your account should do it. The software is linked to the account, not the app.

    I'm a little confused... Doesn't the dev still get compensated even tho Amazon is giving it away? I thought they were getting like 20% of the retail price? Is it in the agreement somewhere that they can GIVE AWAY paid apps when they want? If not wouldn't that be pirating? If the developers are being shafted, I would think they would have pulled there apps from there by now?

    PLEASE don't take what I asked the wrong way..I am kinda clueless here, and am just trying to understand how this works. I never would have downloaded that doodle game if it wasn't free for me...But I am sure some people would, and have, paid for it. And if the dev is getting 20% by me downloading it for free (which is what I currently believe), then I am going to D/L everything I can, regardless if I will ever use it or not. Really, I just want to know if I am actually hurting or helping the developers by participating in this? If they are getting the short end of the stick...I need to rethink my position on this..

    Thanks in advance for any info you may have to clarify this for me..

    I think Amazon keeps 30% of the sale price. As for giving it away, I think the dev just gets exposure, not cash.
