Suggested December 2023 5 Android Apps You Shouldn’T Miss This Week

Apple TV Plus is rolling out to Google Chromecasts with Google TV. Google made the announcement this last week. Additionally, support is rolling out to Android TVs with Google TV support as well. There isn’t much else to say about it. You should be able to watch Apple TV Plus stuff on Chromecast now.

The Google Play Store now lets you share apps with other people. It uses Android’s Nearby Share feature. You simply send a copy of the APK to another device. There are some limitations, though. You can’t send some apps (such as the Stadia app) and you also can’t send premium apps for obvious reasons. Hit the link to learn how to do it.

Google Pay and Samsung Pay are adding more support for cryptocurrency in the near future. The service BitPay announced upcoming support for both tap-to-pay apps and you can pay for goods with your Bitcoin with it. BitPay also supports Bitcoin Cash and Ethereum as well as a few others. Look for the roll out within the next month or so. Coinbase already lets you use cryptocurrency, but it’s nice to see more options.

Google Maps received an update this week. It now lets you pay for parking and transit rides within the app. You don’t even need to touch the meter when you use it. Maps teamed up with Passport and ParkMobile to make it possible. You’ll even see a timer in Google Maps to see how much time you have remaining on your parking meter. It should officially rollout in the coming weeks. Hit the link for more details.

LastPass put an awful restriction on its free tier this week. Now, users have to choose between only mobile or only desktop for its free tier where the old version let you use both. This made a lot of people angry and we’re working on a list of alternatives for people who want to jump ship. Hit the link for more details.

New apps and games this week:

Pirates of Freeport

Pirates of Freeport is a roguelike game with RPG elements. Players create a team, explore various dungeons, and upgrade their characters as they progress. The game is difficult and encourages players to have a varied team of fighters with varied stats. It is predominately text driven so you won’t get any rich graphics or anything like that. Your goal is simply to build the best team possible and survive. There are a few bugs here and there, but otherwise this should turn out to be a fun game in the genre.

Word Clock Watch Face

Word Clock Watch Face is a Wear OS watch face. It creates a word clock on your home screen. The clock is simple overall. It has a bunch of words on it and it lights up the ones that correspond with the current time. It works in English, German, Italian, Latin, and Spanish. You can also customize the colors, see a battery indicator, and a minute dot feature to see more granular time. It’s a neat and cheap little watch face that worked fine in our testing.

Sudoku Plus

Sudoku Plus is a new Sudoku app. It joins a very crowded market with a ton of great Sudoku apps, but it should compete well. The game includes multiple difficulty levels, a relatively simple UI, daily challenges, and performance tracking with statistics. It uses a 9×9 grid with only one solution per puzzle so more or less a classic Sudoku experience. Finally, there is also a mode where you can play with shapes instead of numbers. The premium version is relatively inexpensive and it should be a good new entrant for puzzle fans.

5 Apps You Should Consider Installing On Your Pebble Smart Watch

1. Music Boss

Out of the box, a Pebble smart watch can control a single music app on your smartphone. With Music Boss, you can manage several. The app looks and functions like the default one, but by double tapping the play/pause button, you can switch between apps. This way you can alternate between your locally saved songs, podcasts, and streaming music without having to pull out your phone.

2. Pedometer

The pedometer Pebble app takes a traditional pedometer and straps it onto your wrist. Just fire up the app whenever it’s time for your evening walk or jog and look down afterwards to see how many steps you took. You can also set your own personal goal, and the watch will vibrate once you’ve successfully completed it. This app won’t replace the functionality found in a Fitbit Flex, Jawbone Up, or Nike FuelBand, but it’s more convenient than clipping a standard pedometer to your belt loop.

3. Watchlight

Watchlight takes the flash LED located on the back of your smartphone and turns it into a flashlight. Now this functionality in particular probably works better when activated from your phone directly, since you need to hold the phone in order to aim the light around, but integrating it with Pebble offers one less than obvious benefit. The next time you misplace your phone at night, give this app a tap to have it shine brightly like a beacon in the night sky.

4. Weather

This app does what you would expect, providing you with the forecast for your current location and giving a general idea of what kind of precipitation you can expect along with the day’s high and low temperatures. The app also offers a 5-day forecast and the ability to save a secondary city to access from afar.

5. Yelp

The Yelp app is one of the branded apps now available following the Pebble’s update to firmware version 2.0. It’s more in-depth than most other Pebble apps, as it tries to cram much of the convenience of Yelp onto the smart watch’s tiny screen. That said, it does a good job of it. It may not be as usable as the mobile app, but having Yelp quickly accessible is great if you’re more interested in simply knowing what’s nearby than what a particular establishment’s menus and reviews are.


There you have it, five great Pebble apps. These aren’t complex pieces of software. Instead, they do what watch apps do best – reduce how often you have to reach for your phone and provide small bits of useful information on the go. You don’t need to be a techie to understand the usefulness of having the weather forecast available on a wristwatch, and that’s what makes the functionality so worthwhile. Keep an eye out, as the number of apps and what they’re capable of should only increase in the days ahead.

5 Mindfulness Apps For Teachers

Mindfulness isn’t a cure-all for an over-full schedule, but these apps can help teachers interested in trying it to pause and refocus their energy.

Mindfulness is about being present and engaged in the moment—paying attention to your thoughts and feelings in a nonreactive and nonjudgmental way. Certainly, it’s not a cure-all for stress or burnout, but it can be quite effective when you consistently practice it. For example, for eight weeks, Kitty Ka Yee Tsang and her colleagues engaged teachers in varied mindfulness activities—body scanning, cognitive exercises, self-reflection, and mindful eating. At the end, participants reported higher levels of life satisfaction, positive emotion, and general health and lower levels of insomnia, stress, and negative emotion.

Understandably, with a busy schedule, it may be challenging to make mindfulness part of your routine. However, with the following easy-to-access apps, you can pause for just a minute or two and self-calm, refuel, and refocus in time for your next class.

Once you download the app, you can select your focus—sleep soundly, reduce stress, eat mindfully, etc.—and activities that are so aligned will be automatically generated. You may opt for one or multiple foci, as I usually do, and find your way to a happier and healthier personal and professional life.

Of course, if you are looking for something free, there are other apps to explore. I have been fortunate to find a few. They are the ones that follow.

2. Smiling Mind

At the onset of the pandemic, I discovered Smiling Mind and quickly signed up using my existing Facebook account. It offers guided meditations to help one detox (emotionally), channel positive thoughts, and cultivate an attitude of gratitude. There are on-the-go meditations, as well, if you’re walking or on a flight. You can easily reconnect with yourself and the space around you.

3. Healthy Minds Program

To get started, you can take the Healthy Minds Program self-assessment to find your wellness baseline. This takes three to five minutes to complete, and it measures your responses to a series of self-focused questions. The results indicate your level of self-awareness and attentiveness, empathy, and compassion. You can also assess your interpersonal skills, self-knowledge, adaptability, value system, and clarity of purpose.

There are meditations in this program for cultivating kindness (toward yourself and others), appreciation, and compassion. Others can assist you with finding greater meaning in life and embodying the values you hold dear. The stress- and overwhelm-relieving activities can help you regain your focus, passion, and enthusiasm, and remain calm when chaos abounds.

Importantly, you can also use the well-being chart on the app to monitor your progress over time. You can see the sessions you’ve completed, the total time spent on the activities, and how aware, connected, insightful, and purpose driven you have become. 

4. UCLA Mindful

The University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) Mindful Awareness Research Center has a free mindfulness app, called UCLA Mindful, for Apple and Android users. It has basic and podcast-type wellness meditations. You can choose depending on your need and availability. There are sessions to help you work through difficulties, improve your sleep, and harness positive emotions.

If you wish, you can also register for UCLA’s six-week online classes for more in-depth and comprehensive mindfulness training. Classes look at forgiveness, navigating difficult emotions, reframing obstacles, and practicing self-care. These sessions come at a small charge, but if the basic meditations are sufficient for you, then you can continue to access them for free.

5. Mindfulness Coach

Like the aforementioned apps, Mindfulness Coach has many meditation exercises to help you find your zen. You can set mindfulness goals, maintain a mindfulness log, and track your progress. But the app doesn’t stop there. You can use it to build your expertise in mindfulness. For example, you can learn about the benefits of mindfulness, types of mindfulness, and strategies for cultivating inner calm and peace.

Choose any of the above apps that suit your needs, and start or continue your mindfulness journey. Remember, mindfulness practices can enhance and support your overall health and productivity. Moreover, we are no good to our learners if we don’t take care of our mental, physical, and emotional well-being. 

Top 5 Apps To Pre

Blur Effect from Smartphone Manufacturers

With the popularity of the Blur-Focus effect on the rise manufacturers have started providing Blur effect with their stock camera apps, either through after-snap Blur features or through hardware features, as in the case of the HTC One M8, where blur effect is added through the inclusion of two lenses, one of which is responsible for depth perception. Similarly, the Samsung Galaxy S5 provides ‘Selective Focus’ while taking photographs.

Xperia Z2’s 20.7 MP camera provides a ‘Background Defocus’ mode, that provides the ability to blur sideways, vertically or in a more traditional circular fashion. Recent software updates in the Nokia Lumia Phones also allow any device on Windows Phone 8 or above to add blur effect to Photos.

Lumia Refocus App Working Demo and Availability For Other Windows Phones [Video] Macro shots and Blur effect

A Macro shot is an example of extreme close-up photography, where with a good quality camera users can take photos which capture fine details of an object not visible to the naked eye. Moreover, the background becomes blurred as the focus is on an object which is very close.

Play Store apps with Blur features

Some devices do not have Blur features in their stock Camera apps provided by the manufacturer. Users having these devices can download and install third party apps serving as photo editors to add the required effect. Let us have a look at a few great options from amongst these apps available on the Play Store.

After Focus

The After Focus app allows user to add blur on either an existing Photo which the user can select from his Photo Gallery, or to take a new Photo with an existing Camera app on the device.

Users can also choose to apply Blur through the ‘smart’ method, by drawing boundaries on the focus and non-focus area, or through the ‘manual’ method, where users with rub over the area they want to be in the focus.

Once the users have set the boundary, they can just go ahead to get there blurred image. They will have the option to save the image in the device’s local storage.

Focus Effect

User can select the portion to be in focus through a rectangular selection area tool, and then proceed to blur the discarded area. The resulting photo can be saved or shared by the user.


Aviary is one of the most popular Photo editing apps on the Play Store – the 50 Million+ users that have tried this app do point towards this fact. It has numerous features, discussing most of which might be outside the scope of this article, but Aviary also has an excellent ‘Focus’ effect which users can use to insert Blur effect to their photos.

The app allows user to choose the focus area using a circular or rectangular selection tool. Once the area is selected, users can go ahead and apply this effect. Users can then also go on to apply other effects, filters etc. before they finally save or share the picture.


PicsArt is the ultimate photo editing and sharing app, with over a 100 Million+ users and features that will please them all. When we talk about the blur effect, users can choose from amongst five options to add normal, Smart, Motion, Focal and radial blur to their photos.

Users can also use a ‘brush’ tool to apply or remove blur from parts of the edited photo, and then proceed to apply the effect. Once finished, users can either apply other effects to their edited photo, or save/share the photo.


Cymera is another social Photo editing app which provides the user with a number of features. Users can either take a snap through the app’s inbuilt camera or choose a picture from their device’s photo gallery to edit.

The Blur effect can be chosen from the app’s ‘Effect’ options menu. User’s can choose the focus area using a circular or a rectangular tool. The intensity of the surrounding blur can also be adjusted. Once the effect has been completed and applied, users can save or share the picture.

Other Apps

Various other apps available on the Play Store such as Photo Editor, Pixlr Express, Photo Editor Pro by Zentertain etc. also allow users to edit Photos and add the Blur effect with varying degrees of success.


As innovative as apps like these are, they do not provide the same grand effect which a SLR Camera would be able to provide, basically because Blur/Pre-focus depends a lot on the aperture, power and quality of the Camera lens. Nonetheless, while we wait for smartphone Camera’s which will provide outstanding pre-focus blur features, we can definately use third party apps and stock manufacturer’s app to add blur effects on our photographs.

Best Kids Apps: Top Android & Iphone Apps For Children


Available on iOS and Android.

It’s hard to believe, but Minecraft celebrated its 10th anniversary in May 2023. After all this time, kids still love its blocky worlds and the fact they can build anything that they can imagine.

It’s available on almost every phone and tablet, plus your PC and laptop. Plenty of alternatives have sprung up, including Roblox and Terraria, so if you don’t fancy paying for Minecraft there are free options. 

Among Us

Available on iOS, Android and Steam (for PC)

Among Us has been a smash hit in 2023, and something kids around the world have used to while away the lockdown hours. It’s free on Android and iOS, but it’s a few pounds / dollars on Steam or direct from InnerSloth.

It’s a multiplayer game for 4-10 people where players are either crewmates or imposters on a spaceship (or sky headquarters or planet base).

The aim depends upon which role you’re assigned when you join the game. Crewmates have to do tasks around the ship, while imposters have to sabotage the mission by killing crewmates without being ejected from the ship.

It’s great fun for kids and adults alike and you can play using local Wi-Fi against friends or family, or online against people you don’t know. There’s text chat which is integral to the game as part of the voting system and, in our experience, is pretty safe and clean.

Our kids say that it’s only fun (after playing obsessively for three months) if you get to play as an impostor. Nevertheless, Among Us is set to remain ultra popular well into 2023.


Best Prices Today:

Available on Android and iOS

For slightly older kids who love Minecraft, Terraria is more than a close second. It’s not free, but it’s well worth the outlay.

Terraria is all the stuff you love about Minecraft, allowing you to create unique 2D worlds, but serving up more stuff to kill, things to build and places to explore.

There’s also a version for Amazon Fire tablets too. 

Pokémon GO

Available for Android or iOS (free to play, with in-app purchases)

Pokémon GO is such a simple and yet absolutely brilliant idea that has captured the world’s attention. And millions of people still play: special events and new Pokémon to catch has kept our kids (and adults alike) perpetually interested. It encourages them to walk around to real-world locations to catch Pokémon and collect things from PokéStops, as well as battle in gyms. 

Pokémon GO is deserving of real credit for getting nations off the sofa and into the great outdoors. It’s a power-draining but oh-so-addictive app, don’t pick up Pokémon GO unless you’re prepared to take your kids to the local park, high street and pretty much everywhere to catch the pocket monsters.

Toca Life: Vacation

Teach your Monster To Read

Best Prices Today:

Available on iOS and Android.

This series of inventive apps has been nominated for a BAFTA award as well as picking up a variety of industry accolades over the years. The reasons for these plaudits are easy to see once your little ones pick up and play the chúng tôi a minimum of effort they quickly start learning how to improve their letter skills, put sounds together to make words, all while under the guise of them helping their onscreen monster learn. 

A great and affordable way for younger children to develop reading skills. 

YouTube Kids

Available for Android and tips for keeping kids safe online.


Available on iOS and

Stardew Valley

Available on iOS and

Facebook Messenger Kids

Available for iOS and Android (but not in Europe, currently).

We wouldn’t recommend any social network for kids (especially those under 13) but Facebook has released a version of its instant messaging app called Messenger Kids.

Facebook has rolled out the app to most countries but we’re still waiting for a UK release date. The good thing is that it doesn’t require you to set up a second Facebook account: you log in with yours – the parent account – and the child’s account piggy-backs off that. Friend requests must be approved by the parent.

It allows kids to send messages, stickers, animated GIFs (vetted) and photos to their friends as well as video call them. 

If your kids are impatient and don’t want to wait for Messenger to launch in Europe, you could try Skype and keep and eye on all friend requests, or opt for the child-friendly Xooloo Messenger.

Toca Life: Farm

Available for iOS and Android

Farm is another in the excellent Toca Life series and – as ever – well worth the few pounds it costs on each platform. There are different areas to visit: the barn, the field, the farmhouse and more. 

In each, kids can interact with everything they can see, milking the cow, feeding the lambs, and harvesting crops. It probably goes over their head, but one of Toca Boca’s aims is to introduce kids to the lifecycle of food. 

Our two testers loved taking seeds from the different sacks, planting and watering them, and then using the tractor to harvest them. You can also use the food machine to turn produce into food. 

Toca Dance

Available for iOS only

Toca Dance has proven an instant hit with our testers, 4 and 8. And plenty of adults have enjoyed a play, too. In the game you get to pick up to three dancers and dress them as you like from the wide range of outfits. Then you teach them routines by dragging your finger on the various body parts. You can move the arms and head independently, and drag the body to make the dancers jump and crouch. Different routines can be assigned to various coloured dots, and the system is brilliantly designed that even young children can use it.

There’s a variety of music to choose between and once you’re done, you can watch the final performance. Even this is interactive – you can cheer, set off fireworks, throw flowers (or tomatoes) and save the video to your camera roll afterwards.

Oddly, it has never been available on Android – just iOS.

Sago Mini Road Trip

Available for iOS and Android.

Designed specifically for toddlers and young children from 2-5, Mini Road trip is made by Sago (the sister company of Toca Boca). Kids can enjoy the fun of a whole road trip from packing a suitcase (complete with wacky items such as a chocolate cake), choosing a car (there are lots, including a shoe and a gherkin) and stopping en route for petrol and at a car wash.

There are six destinations, although only three appear at any one time, which is a little confusing. There are no rules for driving, so kids can pick up the car and fly through the air if they like. It’s great value at this price.

Toca Life: City

Best Prices Today:

Available for iOS and Android.

In City, kids can visit different locations around the city and interact with practically everything. From the apartment to the food stalls and clothes shop, kids can decide which people to ‘invite’ and – depending on the location – give them different clothes, hairstyles, food and more. 


Available for iOS.

Playing funny and educational mini-games, in iOS-only app Forestry your child will help forest dwellers to build a house, gather food stuffs, pick up berries, go swimming and, of course, prepare for sleep. A fascinating and useful game Forestry can also serve as great memory and attention trainer for your kid. (And it can help at bed time.) It is free, but with in-app purchases, so keep an eye out.

Toca Hair Salon 3

Best Prices Today:

Available for iOS and Android.

All the Toca Boca games for kids are great (except perhaps Toca Band, which will drive parents round the bend), but Toca Hair Salon is seriously a must-have on any family’s phone or tablet.

Kids get to be a hairdresser and stylist. This really is a great app for keeping them amused for short periods of time. 

Snail Bob 3

Snail Bob 3 is a game that’s fun and captures the imagination, but slow enough for younger children to play successfully. Snail Bob 3 is a physics-based strategy game, and your goal is to guide the snail on a treasure hunt. Press buttons to control various mechanisms and guide Bob safely to the exit of each level all while collecting the valuables along the way.

Rinse and repeat (hopefully long enough for Mum and Dad to have a break). At the moment it’s only available as a free title on Android, but with the previous instalments being multi-platform, we expect it will appear on iOS soon. 

Toca Kitchen 2

Best Prices Today:

Available for iOS and Android.

Kids love messy play, but you probably don’t like clearing up afterwards. With the second version of Toca Kitchen, kids can chop, fry, bake and now blend food and force-feed it to the new Kitchen characters. Our three-year old tester particularly like blending up pears and Monster Beets, laughing out loud when the sour flavour made the characters spit it out on the screen.

You can mash up peaches, strawberries, watermelon, onions, spaghetti, rice and octopus legs along with ketchup, soy sauce and a deep fryer appliance.

There’s even a  ‘vegetarian mode’ and there are no annoying links (as you get in some freemium games) which take you away from the app to the app store. Well worth the price of admission.

Artie’s Magic Pencil

Available on iOS and Android.

Artie’s Magic Pencil is designed to help kids learn to draw. It aims to teach the fundamentals of drawing to children aged three to six. It offers a relaxed and encouraging space for potential young illustrators who might need some coaxing into the creative world.

Note that on Android it’s free to install, but you have to pay if you want to play past the half-way point.

Monument Valley

Available on iOS & Android.

One of the most beautiful and captivating games ever released, Monument Valley isn’t free but it will keep children and adults engaged for hours working our how to help the silent princess Ida through mysterious and mind-bending fantastical architecture. They’ll uncover hidden paths, unfolding Escher-like optical illusions of impossible geometry, and outsmarting the barking Crow People.

Monument Valley is both surreal and serene exploration through and will surely go down in game history as one of the unique greats.

The best part is that once you’ve completed this game you can buy Monument Valley 2 on Android or

JetPack Joyride

Dumb ways to die

Available on iOS and Android.

Originally conceived as a public safety animation for an Australian metro company Dumb Ways To Die morphed from a brilliant cartoon and maddeningly catchy tune that kids love to sing into an equally fun game of 15 potentially lethal possibilities.

Kids love it and learn how not to get themselves killed at the same time. All together now: “Set fire to your hair, Poke a stick at a grizzly bear. Eat medicine that’s out of date, Use your private parts as piranha bait.”

Such has been the success that there are also now other titles in the series: Dumb Ways to Die 2, Dumb Ways to Die 3: World Tour, plus the Dum Ways Jr games. All are great, so start at the beginning and work your way through the lot!

Let’s Create! Pottery

Available on iOS and Android.

Providing you can wrestle your phone or tablet from your kids once they get wind of it, here’s an app that you can enjoy just as much as they do. It won’t teach you how to become a real potter but Let’s Create! Pottery is a great-looking and surprisingly fun game which everyone can enjoy.

The full game costs money, but if you’re not convinced, try the free Lite version first.

Minion Rush

Available on iOS and Android.

You loved Despicable Me, right? Minion Rush is a great action arcade game where the little yellow Minions jump, fly, dodge obstacles, collect bananas, ride the Fluffy Unicorn, and defeat villains in a variety of different missions.

You can customise your Minion with costumes, weapons, and power-ups. Earning new locations and different Minions makes this free game a lot of fun for Despicable Me fans and anyone who likes bananas. There are in-app purchases available but you can get along fine without them.

There are also lots of alternative ‘endless runner’ games, including Talking Tom Gold Run and Subway Surfers.

7 Best Relaxing Apps And Games That You Can Try On Android And Ios

In our everyday grind of taking care of work, home, or whatever it may be, there are times when we need a moment of peace for our minds. Sometimes, with the world moving at lightspeed, you might feel that there is hardly any time to just chill and relax. We hear you and that is why we have curated a list of some really amazing relaxing apps and games that can help you relieve your stress and just chill for a few moments during your hectic day.

7 Best Relaxing Apps/ Games on Android and iOS

1. Kami 2

Kami 2 is a simple color-focused puzzle game based on the Japanese art of Origami. In this game, you will get a multi-colored canvas with different geometrical shapes. The objective of the game is to fill the entire canvas with a single color in as few moves as possible.

Download Kami 2 on Android and iOS (Free, in-app purchases start at $0.99)

2. Exominer

Exominer is a real-time simulation game in which you have to mine natural elements on exotic planets to build your mining empire. It is more like a light strategy game that you can play and watch your virtual mining business boom across the universe. Maybe, you can become the Elon Musk of this virtual world.

So, what makes it a stress reliever, you ask? Well, the game design and the sound effects provide a soothing effect and help you to indulge in the virtual world. Moreover, as it is a real-time game, you do not need to stay on the app for long hours. You can check your progress in the app from time to time.

3. Griddie Islands

Griddie Islands is one of those weird yet satisfying games which I absolutely love. It is kind of a hugely modified version of Tetris and lets you merge multiple “Griddies” (Tetris-like pieces) with each other to form different “levels” of structures. These structures can then be placed on tiny gridded islands to excite the “fleas” and, in turn, produce “virtual money”.

I told you! It is one of those weird games which you have to play in order to understand. Moreover, the quirky colors and a super-fun UI-design make the game a certified stress reliever.

Download Griddie Islands on Android and iOS (Free, in-app purchases start at $0.99)

4. Colorfy

Now, adult coloring books have been available as stress relievers for adults. Similarly, this app, I am sure, will help you get away from your hardcore day-to-day grind and give you some peace of mind.

Download Colorfy on Android and iOS (Free, in-app purchases start at $2.99)

5. Fluid Simulation

Fluid Simulation falls under the category of gesture-based simulation apps and it is one of the best which I have come across lately. The app opens up as a pitch-black screen on which you can tap, swipe, or twirl your finger(s) to create mesmerizing fluid animations. The app supports multi-touch gestures.

You can even manipulate many of the factors to make your custom fluid animation and save it as a preset for using it later. Moreover, the animations are so cool and crisp that after creating a pattern, you can quickly screenshot it to make it your wallpaper of the day.

Download Fluid Animation on Android and iOS (Free, one-time payment of $2.69)

6. Rakko Ukabe

Remember the Talking Tom app in which you had to feed Tom the cat and take care of him? Well, Rakko Ukabe is a similar kind of pet-simulation game. However, instead of a cat, in this, you can lure sea otters in the sea with food and take them to your “Home” to watch them simply chill in a tub of water.

Download Rakko Ukabe on Android and iOS (Free, in-app purchases start at $0.99)

7. Viridi

If you are someone who is into growing plants but cannot do so in your current house, then Viridi is an app that, I am sure, will cheer you up. It is a simple simulation game in which you put seeds of a particular plant in a pot and watch it grow on your smartphone.

The game has a minimalistic UI design and constantly plays soothing music. As a result, it works as a great stress reliever for people who love plants and trees.

BONUS: A Couple Other Relaxing Games That I Love

Now, apart from the above games, there are a few other similar titles which I love and would recommend you to try.

One of those is Stack (available for Free on iOS and Android) which is a fast-paced one-tap game. I am not sure if it will be a stress buster for you (it is for me, though) and I suggest you give it a try.

Another one on the list is “Dots” which I can guarantee is a stress buster material as it  involves connecting similar colored-dots to each other. It comes in several modes such as timed, moves, endless, and challenges. This one is also available for free on both Android and iOS.
