Are you bored out of your mind? Did you use up all the possible ‘new hobbies’ to try in the last lockdown? You are not alone. So we’ve come up with a list of apps to keep you entertained during lockdown.
1. Musee de Louvre
If you love a bit of culture, and miss things like museums and galleries, the Louvre museum in Paris has created this app with 100 pieces of art for you to look through. With over 500 HD pictures and the ability to zoom, it’s something to do to make lockdown feel a little less shut in.
2. Draw Something
Not a new app by any shout, but Draw Something allows you to play pictionary on your phone with people online. It’s an easy and fun way to waste hours giggling at the nose you drew that accidentally ended up a little bit phallic.
We all remember the memes about the Duolingo owl. But now you have no excuse. So catch up with the language you promised the owl you’d learn however many moons ago!
4. Nike Training Club
Nike created this app to provide people with free workout tutorials, so if you are looking to better yourself this lockdown, or maybe you want to lose a few pounds (just to put them back on at Christmas), give this app a go. It’s made by Nike, it’s got to know what it’s on about. Just do it, right?
If you’re missing going to the local comic book store, download ComiXology. An app with a plethora of comics readily available at your fingertips. You can take them with you anywhere… well, once we’re allowed to go anywhere.
6. Two Dots
Two Dots also isn’t new, but it’s a fun and challenging little game that you’ll get so easily addicted to, that by the time you put your phone down, COVID will be but a distant memory!
7. Sims Mobile
Sims is fabulous. We all know it. We all love it. And now you can have it in your pocket. Why wouldn’t you? Get your characters ready, and play God to keep yourself entertained during the lockdown.
8. A Street Cat’s Tale
A simple open-world game, A Street Cat’s Tale is an RPG mobile game wherein you are, you guessed it, a street cat. You start the game as an abandoned baby kitten and have to survive long enough in the streets to become a full-grown cat.
StumpleUpon is brilliant for anyone who wants to find new things to do or to like but isn’t sure where to start. The app randomly selects pages, memes, photos, or news stories for you based on the things you like. You can choose to read through them or shuffle to the next item. It’s like tinder, but for online content.
Do you like random facts? Or learning new things? Curiosity has thousands of interesting bits of information, so that you can come out of lockdown an annoying know-it-all. Or a genius. Depends how you re-tell the facts!
