For all users that have just got a new Kindle and want to see what games or apps are available on the e-ink e-readers, I highly recommend that you look at the apps listed at the Kindle Editors Picks for 2011 page. I have reviewed a majority of these apps this year and you can search this site to find more details about each item. These are all on sale at $0.99 until January 2, 2012 – which makes them a steal now.
Please make sure to check if the items are available for your Kindle model(s). Some have not been adapted for Kindle (4) and Kindle Touch.
Here are the items and a brief note about each of them:
