You’ve packed your bags and booked the time off work; you set your alarm for the middle of the night and remembered to return for your passport; you’re ready for your latest holiday. That is, until, you get to the airport to find your flight has been delayed for several hours.
Annoying, right? There was a time when this situation could’ve been enough to ruin the entire holiday, but thanks to the marvel that is smart technology, there’s plenty out there to keep you entertained. Let’s take a look at some of the apps that could keep you sane during your wait.
Plants vs. Zombies 2
One of the most addictive games on the planet, it’ll take you a couple of rounds to get used to the mechanics but there’s a reason why kids are so hooked to this game: because it’s great.
Entertaining and with fantastic levels of difficulty, it’s surprisingly relaxing whilst urging you to carry on playing. It makes the most of the iPhones graphics without sapping the notoriously temperamental battery, making it ideal for a few hours delay.
Facebook is dead; long live Twitter. There’s nothing quite like Twitter to keep you entertained and a recent update to the sites mobile app has made it more of a joy than ever to be involved in.
It might sound much more simple that the game apps, but there’s so much to do on Twitter that you’ll be entertained for hours. Whether you choose to discover some of the latest breaking news or get excited about your holiday through accounts like OnTheBeach, it’s the most comprehensive and entertaining social networks out there at the moment.
If there is a game out there that is more infuriating and more addictive than Angry Birds, we’ve yet to find it. The app that launched a million others, it was one of the first to take the world by storm.
There are more levels than you’d be able to complete on even the longest of delays, with themes like Star Wars and Rio to show you a new take on your favourite films. Be careful not to get too addicted – put the phone down when you finally get on holiday!
