I have read an article posted on January 2006 somewhere in answers.google that on average, a person spends an estimated 45 to 62 minutes waiting everyday. So in seventy years, a person spends 3 years waiting. I have tried googling for a newer or updated survey but haven’t found anything yet. Now that half a decade has passed, I think that there is more waiting time in a day spent by a person, considering that there are lots of gadgets and things that are powerful enough to push a person to procrastinate and waste more time. Whatever it is that comes to mind, they all have the capability to amuse and entertain a person like an addictive drug once held by the hand and seen by the eyes.
One of the most effective tool to take away boredom and amuse a person are the apple games. Here is someone’s top 20 on his list. Click the thumbnails to look for further details about the game.
1. Temple Run:
From the makers of the award-winning best-seller Harbor Master® comes the most exhilarating running game on the App Store. Test your reflexes as you race down ancient temple walls and along sheer cliffs. Swipe to turn, jump and slide to avoid obstacles, collect coins and buy power ups, and see how far you can run!
PopWords! is an addictive new word finding game. Drag your finger to select words, and watch them vanish with a pop! New letter blocks fall to fill in the gaps, so there are always fresh tiles to work with. You can even select words strategically to move tiles into place and form even longer words.
To keep the game going, you need to find words regularly. Keeping up gets tougher and tougher as time passes. Try to beat your record for words found or points earned!
