AVG develops apps for new Amazon Fire phone

July 23, 2014

AVG is delighted to announce that it has two brand new apps for the Amazon Fire phone which launched this week.

Having previously delivered custom-built apps for the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX earlier in 2014; AVG was delighted to be offered the opportunity to develop apps for the Fire phone.

Designed to take advantage of all the exiting new functionality built into the Amazon Fire phone, we have developed two new apps, AVG AntiVirus PRO for Fire phone and AVG Alarm Clock Xtreme Free for Fire phone which are both available to download from the Amazon store for FREE

The phone’s unique features make it exciting for users and developers alike.

Dynamic Perspective

The Amazon Fire phone’s Dynamic Perspective means that by tracking the user’s face through four front facing cameras, the phone alters the display to ensure that the user gets the best possible display.

AVG had this in mind when developing its Fire phone apps which have added functionality to take advantage of this emerging technology.

Gesture input

This same technology means that AVG was able to specifically integrate gesture control into the Alarm Clock app so that users get can get the full Fire phone experience. This means that users who download the AVG app can nod or shake their head to ‘snooze’ or turn off their alarm and other physical gestures will provide a richer, more impactful experience.

Just as Amazon has done with the device, we wanted to provide users with a great experience that is engaging and exciting.

AVG AntiVirus PRO for FREE

To mark this exciting event, and to really show off the exciting new features (such as Dynamic perspective and gesture control) we wanted to give Amazon Fire phone users the richest possible experience by making the fully featured, premium version of our security app available free of charge.
