Boredom-Busting Apps for Slow Office Days
No matter how much you may love your Amish made furniture, there are some days you want nothing more than to get away from that beautiful desk and do something exciting. For the days you have to be at the office but you think the boredom may be your doom, turn to your smartphone. No, not for social networking or checking your personal finances, or even for listening to music. Really, how long is that going to keep you occupied? Try downloading a few of these awesome apps to pass the time away:
  • Scrabble Free
Who doesn’t love word games? And Scrabble is one of the most classic word games out there. The mobile nature of apps allows you to play solo against your phone or engage your friends, wherever they are. Since it syncs with Facebook, your friends don’t even need an iPhone to match their word wits against yours!
  • Paper Toss
Playing basketball with your trashcan is a time-honored tradition for fighting boredom, but it can make such a mess if your aim is off. Get the fun of the activity without having to clean up after yourself by installing the virtual version on your phone. The best part? If your boss happens to walk in while you’re playing, it won’t be obvious you’re goofing off!
  • Tic Tac Toe Free
Do you remember being so bored in class or church you couldn’t stand it, only to have your best friend draw the simple lines that serve as the foundation for Tic Tac Toe? And do you remember what a relief it was to have a fun, quiet activity to do to break the monotony of the circumstances? Relive your childhood boredom-busting strategies when you install this app on your phone.
  • Pac-Man Lite
Whether you were around when Pac-Man made his debut, or you learned about it from your parent’s nostalgia, there’s no denying the tantalizing fun of this classic arcade game. Enjoy the fun, and sometimes frustration, of chomping up those dots while avoiding the ghosts — right on your smartphone. The awesomely vivid graphics are just the icing on the cake to what was already a perfect boredom-busting game.
  • Solitaire
Classic, challenging and fun, there’s nothing quite like a good Solitaire game to make the hours fly by. The beauty of playing this card game on your smartphone is that you can take it with you anywhere, without the hassle or mess of actual playing cards. Not to mention, you’ll never have to shuffle your own deck again. So whether you’re chained to your mission style furniture for the day, or you just want something to spice up your downtime, you now know some of your options for simple, boredom-busting fun.
