Boredom Busters

5 boredom-busting apps to download now


Dying with boredom? Whether you’ve got 3 minutes to kill during a commercial break or an entire hour (hello, study hall), here are our favorite apps to get our brains—and fingers—in gear.

 

QuizUp

Lovers of Sporcle, rejoice! This app offers seven-question quizzes in pretty much every subject imaginable, from snack food to children’s lit to red carpet. You can face off against Facebook friends and folks from around the globe, and score badges as you rack up the points

Free for iOS/Android

 

Lumosity

Yep, you’ve seen the ads: This app offers brain teasers that keep your mind active. Take its custom-designed tests three to five times a week and you should notice that you’re better able to resist distractions, think critically and multitask.

Free for iOS

 

Moodies

Talk into this app, and it’ll tell you how you’re feeling. You know. If you’re confused. All you do is push a button and start talking about pretty much anything, and the emotion analytics app will decode ya based on tone, clarity, speed and all sorts of different elements.

Free for iOS

 

Wreck This App

We love the Wreck This Journal line of diaries and scrapbooks that encourage all-out creativity, so we’re thrilled they’ve used the same concept to create an app from which you can easily share all your doings. Just like the books, the app offers prompts to get ya rollin’.

$4.99 for iOS/Android

 

Happier

Think of what Facebook would be, without all the FOMO and the one-up-manship and the brag posts. That’s Happier, a social network where people share the little things that make them happy. Like the first daffodils popping up this spring, and little lambs frolicking in pastures. Sigh.

Free for iOS
