Flow Free

For making time go by as quickly as possible, the key for any game is to blend simplicity with difficulty. Few games do this as well as Flow Free that has been released by Big Duck Games LLC. The goal of the game is to connect matching dots with single-colored lines. The grid pattern must be completely covered by the end of each round with increasing dots, colors, and overall difficulty. You can end up spending hours and hours of fun with this app!

Logos Quiz

Not many realize just how much of an influence advertising has on the subconscious. The Logos Game by Atico Games does a great job of harnessing this information into a simple-but-fun quiz game. There are tiered levels of difficulty with the first few levels being brands popular around the world. Over time, the logos become more difficult with foreign clothing lines and obscure car companies. Test your knowledge of all things commercial with this app.


Rumble is another game that is designed to kill time by blending simplicity and difficulty. Each match is two minutes and friends can be challenged directly or players can choose from a pool of other fans looking for open games. Over a 2 minute period, each person attempts to unscramble letters to make as many words as possible. The game tracks wins and losses over one’s career for bragging rights.

Break It

Break It is not a game, but it is definitely an app that is designed to kill time and maybe even reduce stress. This simple mobile app allows users to choose from a variety of items ranging from virtual light bulbs to picture frames. They can then use their finger to smash them around a virtual room with satisfying noises and tactile feedback.

Google Books

Curling up with a good book no matter where you are can be a rewarding and relaxing experience.
