If you’re looking for a little bit of light entertainment whilst relaxing in the bath, or commuting to and from work, there is a huge library of apps and games available for any smartphone users that will take your mind of the stresses of day to day life.
We’ve collated a few to get you going: Careful though, you may become a little addicted!
9Gag is a website accessible to anyone on desktop which offers thousands of memes, gifs and hilarious images on a regular basis. Most of the shared funny images you will have seen on Facebook, come from sites like 9Gag and Igmur. The app lets you scroll through thousands of images for a little chuckle on the train.
Candy Crush Saga
Taking the world by a complete storm, Candy Crush is a technology phenomenon. Taking a simple gaming style that has been around for years (also found in Bejewelled and gem collecting games), the Candy Crush Saga game sees you matching a number of candies together in order to crush them together so you can complete the game, all before the timer stops!
You’ll have seen people all over the world intensely staring at their phones at colourful patterns of candy, and now it’s your turn!
Initially the addictive game is free, however if you lose lives within the game, there is the option to invite Facebook users to gift you more lives, or purchase them in-app. We wouldn’t recommend you use your wages on lives to score candy, but whatever floats your boat…
Temple Run is another extremely addictive game but this time, the game uses the actual movement of your phone to direct the player through a temple maze, jumping over barriers in the way.
Sounding a lot easier that it is, we challenge you to take on the temple run!
We’ll see you on the other side, if you make it…
Trivia Crack is a fun trivia game that you can play with local friends also using the app, as well as people from all over the world!
Taking it in turns to answer questions, you’ll have to have knowledge of everything from animals to history and science.
The aim is to collect all the chips – like in the trivial pursuit board game – to win.
Face swap – similar to a filter integrated into the Snapchat app – is a truly hilarious app for fun with friends.
Using the camera facility on your phone, Face Swap identifies each person’s face and swaps them around, leaving you with some…interesting…. looks.
So if you’re ever feeling a little bored, those are just a few things to keep you occupied when feeling a low. But definitely don’t limit yourself to these, as there’s a whole would of competition games and puzzles available.
If you find any of the apps mention are not available on your operating system, it is more than likely you’ll be able to find a similar copy of it named something else.
