2) Wheel of Fortune

Now you can play the iconic television game show right from your smartphone. Just like contestants on the Emmy-winning game show, you spin the wheel, choose letters and try to guess the word or phrase. You can even purchase a vowel to help solve the puzzle when you’re stuck. Make it more interactive by challenging those closest to you to a game and win prizes. If you win a game, give the bonus round a go. Although it’s a great app for wasting time, you’re actually challenging your brain as you solve the puzzles. Plus, the makers are constantly posting new puzzles to keep the app fresh.

If you love GIF’s and memes, Imgur is the app for you. After opening the app and creating an account, you’ll be asked to select five topics that interest you. After making your selections, GIF’s and memes that jive with your interests pops up. You also have the option to post your own memes in any category and follow other people. Love a particular meme? Then vote it up and help it go viral.  If you’re active on social media, you’ll find plenty of shareable material here from silly to informative. It’s a great app to have on your phone when you have a little time to kill or just need a laugh.

4) Mood Finger Scan

What kind of mood are you in today? The mood finger scan app claims it can tell you.

Once you get a reading, you can share the results on the social media sites of your choice directly from the app. You’d be wise to question how accurate this app is, but it’s an entertaining time waster!

5) Paper Toss

There’s something satisfying about tossing a piece of paper in the trash can. Now, you can do it on your smartphone with the Paper Toss app. To play the game, swipe your finger across the screen to toss the paper into the trash can. You get points each time you’re successful. But, don’t get too confident! It gets more challenging as you move up the eight levels available on this app. When you rise to higher levels, the app adds varying degree of wind speed from a fan. This blows the paper off course and makes it harder.  Still, it’s satisfying when you hit the basket! As you play, you’ll hear office sounds in the background to make it even more realistic. Simple, but slightly addictive!

6) Paint by Number

The concept is simple – pick one of the many designs this app offers and color it. You can use whatever colors you want, but Paint by Number makes it easy if you’re less artistically inclined. Included are numbers that correspond to a particular color that goes well with that design. So, painting with this app can be almost mindless. Just fill in the color that the number corresponds to. Feel your stress melt away as you create your own personal artistic masterpiece! The app makes it easy to share your artistic creation on social media too. Release your inner Picasso and try your hand at the new designs as they’re released daily.

7) Pictoword

Pictoword challenges your verbal skills in a simple way. Here’s how it works. The app shows you two pictures. The identity of the item in each picture forms a word when you put them together. You have to identify that word to solve the puzzle. For example, the app shows you photos of a fire and the head of a dog. The word they’re looking for is hot dog. You have the option of watching ads to earn additional coins and use them to get hints for solving a particular puzzle.

9) Ridiculous Fishing

To catch a physical fish, you have to load up your fishing supplies, get in the car, and head to a body of water. Why go to all the trouble when you can catch virtual fish from the comfort of your smartphone? Once you download the Ridiculous Fishing app, cast your line and hook as many fish as you can without hooking other sea life, like jellyfish. What’s more, you’ll earn points for every fish you catch, and the fish become more valuable the deeper you go. It gets more challenging! Once the fish reach the surface, they fly through the air and you have to shoot them to earn points. But, be aware that when you hook jellyfish, you lose points. Prepare for a challenge! You can even purchase additional supplies to make the job easier.
