Yesterday

IGN has selected Heroes Reborn: Enigma as its Free Game of the Month for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. This is the first time that this title has gone free since it was released back in October. It hasn’t budged from its original list price of $5 since the fall. Heroes Reborn is rated 4.5/5 stars all-time.

Unlike typical price drops, you can’t just grab this freebie from within the App Store. You’ll need to do the following:

You may have heard of BearTek before. It launched its first-generation Smart Gloves a while back as a way to control your smartphone with built-in sensors. Last Friday night, the guys behind BearTek made an appearance on Shark Tank and launched version 2.0 on Indiegogo. We won’t spoil the episode for you, but we’ll just say Mr. Wonderful had his doubts.

So what does the second generation add? In addition to the original model’s support for iPhone/Android, BearTek has introduced compatibility with GoPro plus “user-defined touchpoints” and a new developer kit. Full details below.

The Luminid Touch Light-Up Cable glows when you touch it, making it easier to plug it into your phone after dark. You can order one now for $10 shipped via 9to5Toys Specials.

If you are a parent, or someone with roommates, there are times when switching the light on isn’t an option. For such circumstances, the Luminid is ideal. It comes in Lightning and micro USB flavors, and inside the connector there is an LED light. When you pick up the cable, this glows until you manage to plug in your phone or tablet successfully. At 40 inches long, the Luminid offers impressive reach, and the cord is sheathed within a durable PVC jacket which provides good flexibility. The Lightning version is also MFi-certified, meaning it has Apple’s seal of approval.

Currently, the Luminid Touch Light-Up Cable is 49% off the MSRP of the Lightning version, and 54% off the micro USB cable $9 — both with free shipping.

February 7

Best Buy is now offering $100 discounts on Apple’s iPad mini 4 and iPad Air 2. With iPad Air 3 seemingly around the corner, iPad mini 4 is by far the better buy in this sale. It was released just a few months ago and is a substantial upgrade over its predecessor. The 16GB Wi-Fi model drops to just $299.99, but I’d recommend getting at least 64GB ($399.99) if you plan on using it for anything beyond basic web browsing and email. iPad Air 2 starts at $399.99 during the sale. Target is matching Best Buy’s iPad Air 2 deal prices and will take an additional 5% off for REDcard holders.

Looking to go all out? Apple’s 12.9-inch iPad Pro is currently on sale for $700 shipped (Reg. $799).

While you’re at it, you might as well pickup an Apple Watch too while it’s $100 off. expand full story
