Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) has become unusually generous this month, giving away dozens of premium apps to users who are able to seize the opportunity before the offer expires. The e-commerce giant is gifting people with more than 37 apps worth well over $140. The range of apps on offer is wide, including games and fitness apps.

Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN)’s latest app offer allows free download of various premium apps to different mobile platforms. People can download their favorite apps directly through Amazon’s app store or by visiting Amazon website.

Available on multiple platforms

The latest app giveaway will run until Feb. 14, so those interested in taking advantage to of the offer may have to act fast. At least 37 apps are available free of charge for users on Amazon, Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL)’s Android, BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) and other platforms. However, not all apps are available for every platform.

Valuable free apps

Among the most valuable apps that Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) is giving away are Office Suite Professional 8. The software, which retails for about $20, provides various document functions on Android devices. The other popular apps on offer include Runtastic Pro and Listure Sleep.

The app giveaway is an opportunity for Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) to reward loyal users and also introduce new users to its fast-growing app store.

New revenue sources

Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) has been diversifying its offerings, moving aggressively into hardware where the company has launched various devices. However, the company’s performance in the smartphone segment has been met with challenges. Its Fire Phone suffered a large inventory failure and the company has made a series of price cuts to boost sales.

Still, Amazon’s revamped Kindle Fire tablet failed to perform to expectation in the latest report. Perhaps the company hopes the app giveaway will help rekindle interest in its various products, especially in the hardware category.
