How many times in a day do we find ourselves waiting for one thing or the other, jumping from one queue to the other, or waiting to reach our destination from one end to the other? Almost all the time, right? And there is only so much social media that we can browse before we start getting bored. 

Don’t you worry because we have a list of fun apps that can help you pass your time while you’re bored commuting or waiting for that friend of yours who is always late. Here they are:

1. Flow Free

This fun app is all about exercising your bored mind when you’re trying to kill time. All you have to do is connect matching colours with pipes to create a ‘flow’.

This is the best way to give your brain a much needed workout. Keep elementary math in mind, keep swiping the tiles to reach the number 2048 and try not to get out of the game.
