9 Apps to keep you entertained in your mobile home
Now let’s talk about the merits of entertainment. You can have a pleasant family night at home or an evening of fun-filled entertainment with your friends. And entertaining apps can be a great way to break the ice and make some good memories. So follow along and see what we have in store for you.
1 – Digital museum tours
The Google Arts & Culture app allows you to get an educational and invigorating taste of the arts right from your home. While the app is popular for its selfie feature that matches you with your painted twin, there’s more to the app than that. Through the app, you can take a virtual trip to museums and galleries around the world.
2 – Mad Libs
Mad Libs is a fun word game where you fill in the blanks and make up comical stories that will get the whole room laughing. The app is kid-friendly. And it comes with 21 free Mad Libs stories to work with.
3 – Charades
Here’s a classic game to whip out via your phone’s app store — Charades! To start, hold the phone to your head and face it away from you so you can’t see the screen. Then, as your friends provide clues, you have to guess what word pops up on the app screen. The catch is that you have to guess before you run out of time. (Yes, you heard that right, there’s is a timer!) And whenever you need a “new card,” you can “draw” it simply by tilting your phone.
4 – Liquor Cabinet
If you’re interested in playing bartender, the Liquor Cabinet app will help you whip up some mixed drinks. Let the app know what’s in your pantry, and it will proceed to showcase recipe options based on what you have.
5 – NeMO-Net
You’re probably wondering…what on earth could NeMo-Net be? Actually, despite the vague-sounding name, it’s a single-player game that allows you to help NASA classify coral. This is done by painting 3D and 2D images. Through the app, you can explore and classify coral reefs and other marine environments.
6 – Disney Pictopia
Another fun option to consider is the Disney Pictopia app. It’s a trivia app featuring decades of Disney magic. The questions are image-based. And you can play alone or with a group of friends. For a family of Disney geeks, this is an app worth looking into.
7 – New York Times crossword puzzle
If you have a larger screen to cast your phone to, the New York Times crossword puzzle app could be a group effort. These are the same puzzles printed in the New York Times. And as a subscriber, you could access over 20 years of puzzle archives.
8 – Host a TedTalk marathon
We’re all familiar with TedTalks. So why not create a playlist of TedTalks and host your own TedTalk marathon at home complete with snacks and breaks? Simply gather your loved ones around the TV for an educational experience. And you can even use your YouTube app to cast the videos to your SmartTV.
9 – Netflix Party
If you and the gang want to connect with friends from afar, the Netflix Party extension for Chrome is one way to do it. You can watch a show with your friends from the comfort of your home. And they can watch with you from the comfort of theirs.
