The Apple Store app has just been refreshed with a new iOS freebie. This time around you can download a free copy of Shadowmatic for iPhone and iPad. We’ve only seen this app available for free one other time and that was when it was featured as the App of the Week. Outside of these two occasions, this award-winning app will usually cost you $2.99.

The only way to snag this freebie is to go through the Apple Store App. Complete download instructions are as follows: expand full story

The BLOCKS modular smartwatch hit Kickstarter today and in just a few short hours it has flown past its initial $250,000 goal. There was a lot of hype initially surrounding its launch, which has proven to be well deserved.

BLOCKS was first teased back at CES with a promise of hitting the crowdfunding circuit this summer. The build-your-own watch offers a unique alternative to Apple Watch and Android Wear examples that are largely limited in function by their software capabilities. Although it took a little more time than originally expected, today’s response has been through the roof. Head below for more details.

I’d be willing to bet your home has some sort of smart or internet-connected device. Whether it’s a Nest Thermostat or WeMo smart plugs, the internet is invading our home one small piece of plastic at a time. The struggle with many of these devices, such as the Nest, is that it only provides a data point for one location in your home. While it is possible to add additional thermostats, that’s not a cost-effective solution for most consumers.

That’s where Koto comes in.

By doing so, Koto is able to paint a more reliable picture of your home’s health and can even recommend on how to improve it…
