It has been a long time since most of us have used our phone for that basic function of calling other people, and there is a good reason for that, as your device offers you hours of recreational fun after you have downloaded some well-chosen apps.
Here is a look at some great apps to enjoy in between the phone calls, including some games to satisfy your fast-paced entertainment needs, some apps featuring your favorite sports, and some brain teasers to get you thinking.
The need for speed
There are games to suit everyone available to download, and if you can’t find an Android app for your devices that floats your boat, it can only be down to the fact that you haven’t looked hard enough.
Top of the list for plenty of us are racing games and you are well and truly spoiled for choice when it comes to fulfilling your need for speed.
Ridge Racer Slipstream is a good example of the sort of game that you can enjoy on your phone and will entertain you for hours as it delivers the console experience to your device.
This is a game that is designed to get your competitive juices flowing and once you have seen off the opposition there are also some viable alternatives to consider in the form of Asphalt 8 Airborne and Need for Speed, so you will never be short of some adrenaline-fueled car chase action on your phone.
Like your sports?
This is another area of entertainment where there are so many great games available to download, so you can take your pick depending on what sport you like or want to try.
Basketball fans are well catered for with games like Dunkers and Basketball Battle offering plenty of fun and entertainment.
If you don’t take your golf too seriously Flappy Golf 2 will bring a smile to your face as you try to navigate a winged ball around a variety of courses, and Super Stickman Golf 3 is also worth a second look.
Challenge your brain
If you want to give your gray matter a bit of a workout after playing some action-packed games, there are plenty of apps available that are designed to challenge you.
The Light House brain game is a good example. It is based on light physics and you have to work out how to use mirrors and other tools to make the energy flow correctly. The game eases you in gently with a few easy levels but your analytical skills will definitely be tested as you work your way deeper into the game.
If you like that game, you might also appreciate Mekorama, which is described as relaxing gameplay with charming robots, although you might not hold that view if you get stuck on one of the 50 different puzzles within the game.
This is just a small selection of the many different apps that offer you games and challenges designed to entertain and provide hours of fun.
