We’re in lockdown (no surprise there), and I think we could all use some refreshing apps to kill time on. Since I spent some time successfully finding some great ones on my own, I’ve decided to share them with you all today. Hopefully it cures your socially-distanced boredom, too. Keep reading if for 8 of my favorite apps.
This game is as good as “new” can get for fellow Scrabble enthusiasts and word connoisseurs. Fly through levels after forming as many words as possible in each with the letters you’ve been given. Pretty self-explanatory, surprisingly addictive. I may or may not have to spend 0.99$ to go ad-free.
This app provides cute (and free!) wallpapers for download in either a square or rectangle format (that fits your home or lock screen just right)! Because we’re all spending more time on our devices these days, why not spice up what you’re looking at?
This app turns your phone camera into the disposable camera of the good old days. Snap your photos and wait until 9 am the next day for them to “develop.” It takes the artificiality out of the mix and allows you to be fully present. Still, the cute photo surprises the following day are my favorite part!
4. The Pattern.
Whether you’re interested in astrology or not, this app is excellent. All you need to input is your birthday, name, and birth time to receive a comprehensive summary of your astral alignments. You can even add your friends and check your zodiac “compatibility” (of course, take any information from this application with a grain of salt 🧂)
If you’re lucky enough to live within the range of this app’s delivery zones, congratulations: you now have access to snacks, drinks, supplies, and more in less than a half-hour! Yeah, I’m serious. I used this app way too much back in college and still do. Hopefully, it brings you joy as well.
6. Among Us.
A super fun mystery game to play during the lockdown. You’re grouped with up to 9 other astronauts in a spaceship, but one of you is a secret “killer.” Work together to find out who it is. If the majority vote is correct, you win! You can also enjoy this app with your friends by joining the same “rooms” as them.
Who knew making lists and staying organized could be so aesthetically pleasing?
Last but not least, if you are prone to misplacing your keys, wallet, and phone, you need a Tile! From the site: “Bluetooth-enabled devices and handy Tile app make everything findable.” You’re welcome.
I hope you enjoy these apps as much as I do! For some fun laptop backgrounds, be sure to check out this article.
