Every so often I get swept up in the world of mobile on-the-go entertainment, during these times I have a handful of games and apps that I turn to multiple times on a daily basis. So far this month, these are the apps that keep me coming back. They are especially helpful when I am trying my hardes to stay awake during the pesky 2AM feedings for Emma.
There is just something thrilling about Plague Inc. The object of this game is to infect and kill the world with your disease. There are different levels in which your disease spawns from different things (such as bacteria.) You also can select between three different difficulty levels. I am still battling normal mode…
I always get sucked into the social games where friends are required to play. This turn based game is fun because you want to draw well so your teammate can easily guess what you’ve drawn. The point of this game is go gain as many turns as possible, it is fun to see how many turns you can wrack up. Plus, you get to draw fun and silly things like plumbers with their cracks hanging out. It is also a fun little investment for spend $3 and get some styluses so you can unleash your full drawing potential.
This app may not be for everyone, but I know when I am having a hard time falling asleep or I just want to relax I grab my headphones and turn to Sleepmaker Rain Pro. Nothing relaxes me more than the sound of rainfall and this app delivers dozens of different rain sounds. It also comes with a timer so you can have it play for as long or as short as you’d like. Well worth the buck for the countless ways it can relax you!
Yet another fun game to play with friends, but this one is competitive in nature. Use the power of a quick eye, cat-like reflexes, and your personal vocabulary to find more words than the opponent. I’ve found myself being sucked into this turn based game every night as I’m falling asleep. My favorite person to play with? Cheryl from The Beautiful Side of Hectic. Beware who you play, though, my own husband refuses to play with me anymore because I beat him a few too many times.
Drop 7 is an addicting puzzle game that requires you to do some simple addition and a lot of your strategy skills. It may look out-dated and very 1985, but it will provide hours and hours of fun. You will be dying to beat your own high scores. Each new level will challenge you significantly then the last. Just a warning: You will want to throw your phone against the wall often.
My app preferences change often, but I think these will be favorites for a long while.
What are your favorite iPhone apps so far in 2012?
