The Amazon Appstore for Android turns four years old this month, so its semi-regular free app bundle giveaway is a birthday celebration this time around.
March’s bundle includes 34 apps normally selling for a combined $105. They’re available at no cost through Saturday, March 21.
As always, the apps can be added to your Amazon account without installing them on your Android device right away. Among the offers are games, networking utilities, productivity software, and a number of kid-friendly apps. Several were previously offered in November 2014 or earlier giveaways.
