According to Amazon Underground, Pro Pinball is totally free, including all in app purchases. Is that right? How do companies make money by putting apps up for free on AU? There seem to be a lot that are normally paid apps.

Just googled Amazon Underground and this was among the first results. ... s-for-free

So how do developers get paid? Simple. They're paid for every minute a user spends on the game. The longer you're playing, the more the developer makes.

"Developers like this model because you now have 100 percent of customers making money for you - and they're doing it for the entire lifecycle of the app instead of one payment upfront. It makes developers more motivated to keep updating products because they can drive more engagement," Rubenson explained.
