The Mezzmo app for the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick has just gone on sale for $1.49. This is app was released nearly a year ago, but this is the first time it has ever dropped below its regular price of $4.80. Mezzmo is a media player app that is often forgot next to giants like Kodi and Plex. It can stream files from any DLNA / UPnP media server, so if you already have a Plex server running, you can be up and running with Mezzmo in seconds. Of course, Mezzmo does make their own server software aswell.
If you’re curious about giving Mezzmo a try, they have a free trial app you can check out before committing to buy the full version. The free version is full featured and identical to the paid app, but expires after 15 days of use. Unlike Plex, which relies on a monthly subscription model to access all features, Mezzmo just sells their software for a one-time fee with nothing else to pay later. Mezzmo is compatible with all Fire TV and Fire TV stick models.

Dissonance combines a novelette and point-and-click puzzles to create a unique video game experience. The game is oddly only compatible with the 2nd-gen Fire TV and Fire TV Stick, but if you have a 1st-gen device, it doesn’t hurt picking it up using the “Cloud Only” option on the product page, incase it becomes compatible with older devices in the future.
