5 APPS TO PLAY WHILE W TOILE Lim Wei Di

T

oilet-hoggers, don’t think I don’t know what you are up to in that cramped dark room. You have your phone with you and you know why you are taking so long. I don’t want to sound like I’m encouraging this (ahem) unspeakable habit, but I guess it won’t hurt to share a few apps that would help pass the time while you’re… passing as well.

01

Candy Crush Saga (iOS, Android, free)

02

Flipboard (iOS, Android, free) Flipboard is awesome, and here’s why: You get a highly customizable newsfeed in a nifty magazine layout, not to mention the intuitive page flipping function that takes you from one article to another. Flipboard is content partners with many really cool sites dedicated to every category you can think of. so you will never be bored. Photography? Flip. Fashion? Flip. Architecture? Flip. For the social media addicts out there, don’t forget to sync your accounts!

Warning: This game will suck your life away. I can’t make up my mind about how I feel towards Candy ‘Poisonous’ Crush. I get so annoyed when I can’t get pass a level but I can’t seem to put my phone down. It’s as if I have to pass it to prove a point. Withdrawal effects kick in when you fail five rounds consecutively and have to wait 20 more minutes to get your life restored, but maybe that’s also a sign that you should stop hogging the washroom.
