Fast 60 (Android)
Do you think you are a fast thinker? Are you sure you have the fastest brain ever? If so, you might be interested in choosing Fast 60, a game that sets you against time. In this game both speed and concentration are required to complete it.
The basis of the game is: a grid of squares will appear that lists numbers from 1 to 60 randomly each time, and your task is to tap on the numbers in the corresponding order based on the selected game mode. There are four different game modes to choose from: normal (in ascending order), reverse (in descending order), odds (excluding odd numbers), and evens (even numbers only, obviously). catch? You have only 60 seconds to complete the task.
It’s basically a race against yourself over how fast your cognitive functions are. Basically, here are some tips to help you with your task – choosing five correct numbers in three seconds will stop the three second countdown timer. The flip side is that choosing several wrong numbers in a short time will cause a popup for three seconds with the clock still ticking. It is not recommended to play this while you are not awake!

Invitation Maker (iOS and Android)
There are a number of apps these days that make life a lot easier in terms of design even if you have no idea about the golden ratio or other design rules to save your life. Invitation Maker is one of them. As the Covid-19 pandemic spreads across the world, social engagements are starting to return to normal, which means taking out invitation cards for various events. Why is it not made on your smartphone itself?
Invitation Maker is a digital way to produce amazing e-cards without having to break a sweat. You have a large number of current templates to choose from, including anniversaries, birthdays, special holidays like Halloween and Christmas, and events like baby showers and engagement parties. Basically, your imagination is the limit as you can even draw from your existing gallery for inspiration!
Having apps in this app can be really annoying at times, as some of them require you to wait for a full half minute before you can proceed to the next screen. It’s better to pay an annual fee of $14.99 to remove all ads and watermarks, not to mention let you save in HD mode.

Trotteo (iOS and Android)
Now that you have opened the borders between countries, it’s time to let the roaming insect bite you! When was the last time you traveled to a different country to experience a different culture? Instead of getting bogged down in details, why not make sure your travel details are always close at hand! Trotteo is a trip planner app that helps you keep track of your travel plans.
Once you forward the necessary information to Trotteo, the app itself is smart enough to create a timeline for your travel plans. You’ll have access to how to get to your intended vacation destination, and always have relevant contact numbers and check-in times. It took no more than two minutes for my redirected flight information to be reflected in the app. From there, clicking on the airport itself will launch your default navigation app. How elegant!
This app is even capable of scanning QR codes to transmit information, to the point that it can be quite worrying about how much our digital selves are being exposed to others without us even knowing it. Gone are the days of printing out itineraries and reservations, referring to them separately when needed, when Trotteo does it for you from a single source.

Have you ever found yourself in an awkward situation when you needed some stored images for your presentation but somehow you don’t want to go through the trouble of downloading them from different online sources? Here’s a neat app that does the “dirty” work for you — StockPixels. to benefit from Pixels Repository, StockPixels is directly linked to it for easy browsing and use of its resources.
It’s pretty much a no-brainer – just enter relevant search terms into the search bar, and you’ll see a variety of results likely to suit your needs and requirements. Of course, it is not only limited to photos, but also offers short videos of varying quality.
Basically, this app helps you to save a lot of time if you want to be productive from your Android tablet or smartphone. Those who tend to work while on the go may want to check out this app for convenience.

Roach Race (iOS and Android)
One of the most memorable missions for me in The Witcher 3 is the one where Roach can talk to Geralt while chasing an imaginary horse. Now this was a quest frenzy, and it provided a lot of hilarious moments in the relationship between the mutant and the horse. Developed in collaboration with Crunching Koalas, Roach Race is a free-to-play side-scrolling platformer from CD PROJEKT RED that stars – everyone else, but Geralt’s trusted horse. While Geralt had many other horses before, this is the only roach where he rides freely without his master.
Embark on a never-ending journey across the continent while discovering enchanting landscapes from The Witcher series (Kaer Morhen, Novigrad, Flotsam, Skellig, Isle of Mists in 2D glory), doing so while collecting points and working your way to the top of the global leaderboard. If you’ve ever played seemingly endless runner games like Flappy Bird and Temple run, then Roach Race is really right up your alley. Incidentally, this mini-game is also available in Cyberpunk 2077 on an in-game arcade machine.
Roach will eat his favorites like apples and carrots to boost his energy, while maintaining precise control by dodging deadly monsters and dangerous traps. Basically, the more you advance, the more points you can collect. How quickly do you react as you try to get a place in the top ten list?
