Looking for Apps to Help Pass the Time on Long Journeys?

For people like me who travel a lot for leisure or business purposes, bringing along some gadget(s) is the new way to kill time. Back then, we used to read books whenever we travel short or long distances. Thanks to advancements in technology and electronic gadgets like tablets and smartphones, we can now enjoy long trip due to the entertainment offered by these gadgets. This is one of the benefits of having tablets or smartphones. And it is because of the new applications or apps that we can download for free or for a minimal fee.

  13. Thanks for sharing these! I got an iPad mini for Christmas and I’ve been looking for new apps to download.

  14. We love amazon/kindle. Not sure how we would make it through a long road trip without them anymore!

  15. That sounds perfect for me. I get very nervous as a passenger in a car. If I don’t have something to read or a crossword puzzle I’m a basket case.

  16. Wow – things have sure come a long way from “I spy with my eye” , state license plates game and the ever infamous……Slug Bug!!!

  17. I am going to try the Indie SHuffle. We are driving to Florida this weekend.

  20. My favorite app would be the kindle.

  21. saminder gumer says:

    i will definitely look into some of these apps.

  22. Good list! I like iBooks personally but I have every single major book buying app downloaded lol. I use Barnes and Noble a lot too. Pocket is good too. You didn’t mention any games though or crosswords/wordfinds! Or our social media?? Well I guess it’s good to take a break. My favorite though is Flipboard and Zite for reading articles or my media site news! Way fun stuff comes up through the threads!

  23. Amanda Greene-Lebeck says:
