When you have some spare time on your hands and want some entertainment that isn’t going to cost you anything, it would be a good move to turn to your phone for some ideas and options to fix your fun requirements.
Here is a look some apps that will give you hours of free entertainment, including a popular action game, a simple puzzle app that is harder to solve than you think, plus a couple of calming activities that take you back in time.
Join the jetpack joyriders
You might not be familiar with Barry Steakfries before you load the game on your phone, but this is one of the characters you can become when you take a virtual Jetpack Joyride.
This app has proved extremely popular with gamers and the fact that it has been downloaded 500 million times should tell you that the experience seems to be worth it.
Not only do you get to fly some neat jetpacks as part of the game, you also have to dodge lasers and guided missiles and complete daring missions, so you should enjoy your adrenaline-fueled experience when you jump on your jetpack.
Give your brain a workout
If you like the idea of challenging your mind and solving a deceptively difficult puzzle you might want to try the Flow Free app and see if you can complete the various levels.
The concept of the game is simple enough, as all you have to do is connect matching pipes and colors to create a flow, which the gets you to the next level when you succeed in covering the board.
However, you will soon discover that it is not as easy as it seems, which is what makes the game so difficult to put down.
Seek calm with coloring
If you want to spend some of your free time clearing your mind rather than forcing it to work hard with games and puzzles, a good solution would be to use an app that encourages mindfulness and a greater sense of wellbeing.
This Android coloring book app offers you a great way of whiling away a few hours doing an activity that you probably enjoyed as a child and has proved to be just as rewarding for adults who are seeking to shut out stress with a calming coloring project.
Reconnect with the joy of origami
Staying on the theme of childhood activities that you can take up again and enjoy as an adult, origami is well revisiting.
You can do that with an app like Paperama, which brings you the ancient art of paper folding in a modern format. There are more than 70 puzzles to solve and the 3D effect does add an extra dimension that will add to your enjoyment.
You don’t have to spend money to find something that will entertain you for hours and your phone can be a good source of that entertainment when you download a few well-chosen apps.
