App Deal: Cyboid game for Fire TV is Free for the first time

Get Cyboid for Free

The Fire TV game Cyboid has just gone free for the first time. This is a high-speed 3D first-person shooter game that is reminiscent of the old Quake games. The game normally costs $1.99, but the developer is experimenting with a new subscription model that unlocks all in-app purchasable extras in the game for a $0.99 monthly subscription, so they’re offering it for free to gauge the new option. Even if you don’t pay the subscription or buy any of the in-app items, there is plenty of fun to be had with what is included with the core game, which is what you’re getting for free during this sale. The sale is scheduled to end on April 5th. The game is also available on sale and for free for Fire tablets as a separate app.

Get this Channels App Deal

The Channels app is on sale for $14.99. This is the lowest price that this app has ever been, which is a discount of $10 off the regular price of $24.99. It might seem like a lot to spend on an app, but this app provides a service that most other companies charge a subscription fee to provide. The Channels app gives you arguably the best interface for accessing the live OTA channels from an HDHomeRun network tuner. If you don’t care about recording content, which is a big aspect of the Fire TV Recast, and just want to access your free live broadcast channels on your Fire TV, an HDHomeRun and the Channels app is the way to go.

Amazon Fire TV Apps and Games on sale for Black Friday

Get these App Deals

A few Amazon Fire TV apps and games have gone on sale this morning, presumably to get a piece of the Black Friday rush. First is tinyCam PRO, which has dropped from $3.99 to $1.99. This matches the lowest price that it has ever been, apart from when it was briefly free back in 2015 (good times). This is a very popular app for viewing IP camera streams. Next is Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse, which has dropped from $4.99 to $2.99. This is a great game, but sadly it is only compatible with the Fire TV 1 and 2 boxes. A game that is compatible with all Fire TV and Fire TV Stick models is Cyboid, which has dropped from $1.99 to $0.99. This is a fast-paced 3D first person shooter. The developer tells me he recently added new levels, monsters, achievements, and items, as well as improved the graphics engine. Lastly is PhotoFrame for Synology PhotoStation, which is more of a niche app. It allows Synology NAS owners, which I am among, to remotely view their photos. The app is down from $4.99 to $1.50. UPDATE: The Jackbox Party Pack 5 is also on sale, down from $29.99 to $22.49.
