You are waiting at the doctor’s office, or even for your bus. There’s nothing to do but stare at the people around you – all waiting. You’re boredom antsy and start to fidget. Before you cave in to that gnawing sense of boredom, grab your phone and check out some of these cool apps. They’ll not only alleviate some of that boredom, but also stretch your brain in the process.

4.5 star, 4+ app by Lumos Labs Inc. Challenging your brain against the clock with match, odd one out, spatial awareness and memory type fun games. Makes you think fast and gain agility in your quest to beat the timer. Free version only allows you to play three games a day, which isn’t so bad in retrospect, if you tend to get addicted to playing on your phone! In-app purchases available.

This 4+, 4.5 star rated app by Elevate Inc., for Apple & Android, offers beat the clock games in math, reading comprehension, speed reading, memory and writing. You’ll need audio for some sections of this game.

They do offer a pro-version of this game for a fee.
