Christmas is over, which means: no more breaks, drunk parties, or unwanted gifts. Most important though is the return to school. While most agree that time outside of the classroom is infinitely better than the time spent in one, there is an upside; at least you won’t be stuck at home with nothing to do anymore. For those who are already suffocating under their course work, App Man here has the cure to your boredom. Check out these apps as you slave your way towards summer.
1. Contre Jour – $1.96 for iOS/Android
Artistic as it is fun, Contre Jour is a beautiful interactive piece. Your objective is to move mysterious black creatures to safety by using your fingers to morph landscapes and solve puzzles. Aside from its memorable art style, you will find a soothing soundtrack from composer David Ari Leon. Contre Jour is a unique experience that will leave you wanting more. 5/5
2. Pocket – Free for iOS/Android
Like its name, Pocket is exactly what its purpose is for. You can save your favourite websites and read them anywhere—phone, tablet, and computer.
