Wink

The "Internet of Things" gets closer and closer to reality every day, but unfortunately, the more things you have, the more apps you're likely juggling to keep them all running as you like. Wink is looking to do away with all that by combining the controls for your various gadgets in a single, streamlined app. What all can it control? Things like connected smoke alarms, lights, locks, garage doors, blinds, and even your HVAC system — and from brands like Schlage, Kidde, and Philips, at that, with support for more products — and automation — coming soon.

  • Garmin Viago

    Thanks to our phones' built-in Maps applications, most people quit using standalone GPS units — and standalone GPS apps, for that matter — a long time ago. Garmin Viago is hoping to change all that. This premium navigation app offers online access to maps for many destinations around the world, as well as built-in features like current speed and speed limit, lane assist, weather information, in-map traffic display, and photo-realistic junction views. And if that's not enough, a number of add-ons are available for adding offline map access, real-time traffic with automatic rerouting, and even Garmin Real Directions, which gives you turn-by-turn directions by using landmarks, buildings, stop signs, and traffic lights instead of road names or numbers.

  • Amazon Music

    Amazon's had a music app for a while, complete with the ability to access any MP3's you've purchased from them, and anything you've uploaded from your own library to their cloud servers. But we get the feeling it's going to get a lot more use now. Thanks to the powers of Prime, Amazon Music now provides Amazon Prime members streaming access to over a million songs and hundreds of pre-made playlists — from the likes of Daft Punk, Band of Horses, Fleet Foxes, and many more — all as part of their existing membership. Everything's ad-free, you can download Prime songs to your phone or tablet for offline access, and like we said above, it's free — so go ahead and grab it.
