What Are Your Favorite Games/Apps on Your Phone?

Jordan Dane

I recently upgraded my cell phone and I love being as connected as I am. It feels as if I could exist on my phone and not be so tied to my desk, work-wise.
I love my GPS/Navigation app. I used to have a GAMIN navigator, but you had to buy updates. It’s amazing that there are better navigation apps on your phone for free and they are automatically updated. I can also do voice searches. I feel so Star Trek.
I also love texting now. Who knew? I used to make fun of my niece, telling her that her fingers would fall off from lack of use and she’d only have thumbs if evolution is real. Now my family plays this “GUESS WHERE I AM” game where we send pics of strange places and we all try to guess where the sibs are. It’s like Find Waldo, without the little guy in stripes. As a writer, I can sharpen my “one liner” skills too. Win-win.
Tweetcaster – I love this app, or some version of this. It allows me to set up tweets on a schedule in advance so I’m not tied to Twitter to get posts out. I mainly broadcast post links from the few blogs I belong to, so I can promote my friends blogs and interesting articles for my followers. But it’s a great app.

But where is the FUN, people? When I am waiting for my dentist, Lord knows I need a distraction. I have a very boring Solitaire and I just added Bejeweled Blitz, both free.

Can you guys help me with better diversions? What are your favorite apps or games that you have on your phone?

I have an app called "Zombies, Run!" that tracks your running distances and times on a GPS. It's kind of like an audio-book with each "mission" telling another chapter in between music selections from your library. It's the only app I've ever paid money for, and it was worth every penny.

It's a lot of fun and keeps me motivated for roadwork.

Wow. Sounds cool. Who wouldn't be motivated to run with zombies chasing you? Ha!
