New "Home" App in iOS 9 May Manage Smart-Home Devices

image

I'm looking forward to the June 8–12 developers conference, during which Apple is expected to show off iOS 9 and announce new products. Apple has already confirmed that new devices compatible with their HomeKit platform will launch in June, so many are expecting the Worldwide Developers Conference to feature this forthcoming platform. In announcing HomeKit, Apple said it would be used with devices that control a home's locks, lights, cameras, doors, thermostats, plugs, switches, and more. Smart-home devices are becoming increasingly popular, and a platform that integrates their function and gives them a common interface would be a huge boon — and a big step forward for the industry. The timing is right.

Now it's said to be ready and will include subway, train, and bus information.

Into The Circle is Solid Sliding Fun!

image

Into The Circle (Free) is a ridiculously addictive, endless physics challenge that requires precise rhythm and proper vector throttling in order to advance to the ever higher levels. The freemium game is inspired by the sport of curling, and though I couldn't watch even five minutes of the real thing, it translates well to the hybrid platform-like application represented in this game. One try and I guarantee you will not want to stop trying to get into the circles.

With a name like Ztylus, I was expecting a stylus, but instead Ztylus gave me the Ztylus Metal Camera Kit ($114.95) to try, which includes an iPhone case and 4-in-1 revolver lens. I came away impressed.
