Apps- some fun, some innovative- and some make me want to facepalm. Out of the hundreds… Of THOUSANDS. Of like- BAJILLIONS of them- I have narrowed it down to the five most fun, interesting, and a way to pass the time.
One of my absolute FAVORITE apps to use is Draw Something 2. Yes, it’s buggy, but possibly one of the coolest apps for artists, like me. It’s where you draw a picture from the hundreds of colors and many tools, and then your partner tries to guess what it is. Kind of like pictionary, but a lot more fun and easy, and you can play with a random player, so anyone can play. You can also just draw for fun, and have your friends and members of the draw something can like, and even comment on it, and return the favor by liking drawings from the thousands of players.
Another amazing app is QuizUp. Now this app is for EVERYONE. QuizUp is a game where you choose from the 250+ topics, and then you are matched against a random player, asked seven questions, and the player who answers the most amount of questions right and the fastest wins XP towards leveling up your topic. From Cats, Minecraft, Pokemon, Botany, and even things like the American Revolution- there is a topic for everyone.
Instagram is ok for sharing photos- but what we really need is an app to categorize, repost, and follow only our favorites. Oh wait, we already have that! Pinterest is what your looking for. Pinterest is great because you can create individual boards- for example: you can create a board for cats, where you pin everything cats, and then you can have a board for makeup, and then someone who really likes makeup but they don’t care for cats can follow your makeup board and get all of your best makeup posts, but not have to see any of their cat posts. You can also repin others can see it, and like others posts as well. You can pin things from the web, or your camera roll. Pinterest is one of the best social networking apps.
Do you love play and create music? Put multiple tracks together and create harmony parts? Then you need the free app Garage Band. You can record your voice, a built in piano of guitar, put the tracks together and then adding pre-recorded tracks to polish your music! Save dozens of songs, with lots of tracks, and at anywhere from one measure to 320 measures. You can eventually purchase even more instruments later. Garage band is essential for music lovers everywhere!
The last app is a favorite by all gamers. Yes, you guessed it- Minecraft PE. This sandbox game has hundreds of unique blocks, dangerous mobs, mining, building, and infinite possibilities! First, create a new world, survival or creative, and then it will spawn a randomly generated world for you to build, mine and thrive in. You can even play multiplayer so you can slay zombies, skeletons and creepers with your friends. Though this app is on the pricey side, it is worth every penny.
