Kick off the holiday weekend with 20 temporarily free and 95 on-sale apps

It's finally Friday! Christmas is just a few short days away, so here's my final round of app sales before the holiday. The list today is almost as long as Wednesday's, which itself was massive, but I find it lackluster in comparison. There are some good things to be had, like The Room 3, which you will find in bold. And be sure to go back to Wednesday's post so that you can get in on the remainder of the sales there. Also, I will not be posting one of these on Monday, so I will see you all again next Wednesday.

Instagram now lets you directly nag your friends to watch your live video

What's the point of broadcasting live on Instagram if you can't prod your followers to watch you? Otherwise you're just livestreaming to the wind. To solve this crisis, Instagram today announced a new feature allowing users to send their live videos right to the Direct inbox of a follower or a group of them. It's kind of like performing a song on their front lawn and throwing rocks at their window to get them to notice.

Live videos still work as they always have, this only adds the ability to single out the users you would like to join you, giving you a way of saying, "Hey!

Pandora for Android TV adds premium subscription support, Google Assistant, and more

Pandora went many years without a traditional music streaming option like Spotify or Play Music, but it eventually added the $10 Premium tier that allows you to play whatever tuns you want. However, the Android TV client has been lagging behind. Today, a new version is rolling out that adds support for Premium subscriptions along with a few other features.

'57° North for Merge Cube' is a unique augmented reality choose your own adventure game

Mighty Coconut's first foray on the Google Play Store offers up quite a unique gameplay experience. Their title is called 57° North for Merge Cube, and it is an augmented reality choose your own adventure game that requires the use of a third-party foam cube from a company called Merge Labs, Inc. Suffice to say it may be a bother to purchase yourself one of these cubes, though the gameplay of 57° North is most definitely worth the added effort and cost.

Sonic Runners Adventure is out, but it's by Gameloft and not SEGA

Sonic Runners Adventure is quite an odd release. The first thing people will probably notice is that this title looks pretty familiar, and that is because Sonic Runners Adventure used to exist as a free-to-play auto-runner called Sonic Runners, but SEGA eventually pulled it from the Play Store back in July of 2016. What is interesting is that Gameloft has taken that now-defunct FTP Sonic title and has turned it into a premium release that lacks any advertisements or in-app purchases, and you can pick it up today for $2.99.

[Update: Rolling out] Instagram is testing inline comments in the feed

We know Instagram is working on a lot of new and interesting things, some of which have already started surfacing, but this one is a minor yet welcome change. Some users are starting to see a new inline comment box while scrolling through the feed, which lets them quickly write down a comment and post it.

Initially, we'd thought that Instagram might be using some sort of algorithm to determine which posts this comment box would pop up in, but as one of you in the comments pointed out, it simply pops up after a few seconds of looking at any post (thanks, Yuric).

Firefox comes to the Amazon Fire TV for browsing, and YouTube obviously

When one door closes, another opens. For Amazon, this couldn't be anymore true. With Google pulling its YouTube app from the Fire TV and Echo Show, Amazon users were left with few options to watch their favorite channels and discover new videos. Now that's changing with the release of Firefox on Fire TV.

The browser is available for 2nd gen and newer Fire TVs and Fire TV Sticks, and although it's aimed at US customers, it's accessible to everyone. It's not the full-fledged Firefox experience, though, so don't expect a home page, bookmark sync, extensions, or any of those fancy features you use on the desktop.
