AVG debuts gesture-controlled alarm clock app.


AVG Technologies, (NYSE: AVG) said it has announced two AVG apps that use Amazon's innovative Dynamic Perspective technology solely created for the new Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) Fire Phone.

The AVG Alarm Clock Xtreme app's alarm clock and stopwatch features are controlled with simple head gestures, making selecting snooze or turning off the alarm an easy and immersive experience.

AVG is also providing an interactive version of AVG AntiVirus PRO for Android for the new smartphone and both will be available when Amazon Fire ships, at no cost. The new versions of both AVG apps have been specifically engineered to incorporate the new Dynamic Perspective sensor system that is exclusive to Amazon's Fire phone.

The Amazon Fire phone version of the AVG Alarm Clock Xtreme incorporates movements like nodding and shaking your head, and other physical gestures such as left to right movement, to communicate commands to the app. Amazon Fire users will be able to download both apps directly from the Amazon store for free.

AVG is the online security company providing leading software and services to secure devices, data and people. Its website is at
