    I hit Submit too soon, and I can't modify the previous message.
    I meant to include this quote:
    "... and the company wasn't paid the royalties promised when it was featured as the free app of the day ..."

    Thanks for the link! Brings things into proper perspective.
    And I've always wanted to know what the FAOTD sales numbers were (compared to regular sales), and I'm glad it is provided. Amazing what people do when an app becomes free...
    Maybe Amazon should state more clearly that FAOTD sales will result in no revenue going to the Developer, even if they currently state that in an ambiguous way in their Agreement.
    I heard that the Developers got a very small percentage of the FAOTD sales, based on the regular list price, not 0%, or some % of a sale price of $0.00 (i.e. 0)

    This why people should actually read what they agree to, in any and all arenas.
