Bosch will expand its Home Connect app launched last year to smarten up fridges, washing machines, dryers, and coffee machines.

Magic Duels
REVIEW

EDITORS' TAKE

Drivemode Driving Interface (Android)

It's so intuitive and simple that you could use the Drivemode app for Android while blindfolded, but don't try that while driving.

REVIEW
