We know how it can really get boring sometimes. With the Covid-19 pandemic forcing us to stay inside the comfort of our own homes, we get that you’ll be looking for other ways that can provide you with a little fun or give you some sort of break from whatever that you’re doing. Don’t worry, you can have a little fun time yourself with something that you already have with you – you guessed it – your phone.
Whether you’re on iOS or Android, you can browse their catalog of apps and games available for you to download, some of them are paid while others are free (thanks, developers!).

Before that, here’s a list of things you should be wary of when downloading apps from the App Store or Google Play Store to make sure that your data is safe and secured:
When downloading apps, it is an important step that you read reviews from people who have tried the app before you click that download button. Of course, app developers would only want you to see their good side, and that’s where users come in handy. They can tell you whether an app is really legit or they are just there to phish some of your very important information. Nowadays, it is really important that you stay wary of what information certain apps are getting from you so it’s important that you read about what people are saying about the app.
Check its permission access
Along with reading user reviews is checking which information accesses are going to be granted to a specific app. Recently updated software now has the feature where you’ll know which parts of your phone are going to be accessed by a specific app. If a seemingly harmless game lists that it needs access to your payment methods, you might want to think twice about downloading it. Who knows, your payment information might get involved in a large-scale phishing scam, so it’s always best to stay away from apps that seem suspicious.
Look for other fun things to do
If downloading unknown apps from the web seems like a very iffy concept to you, don’t worry, there are other things you can do if you want to kill some time. With that, we have compiled a list of top fun games to play alone. Go ahead and check it out!
If you’re ready to discover the weird part of the internet, here’s a list of 5 weird apps you can download right now!
5 Weird Apps That Seem Unreal

Milk the Cow
If you feel like going to the farm, this app can simulate the feeling so you don’t have to go out of your house. Milk the Cow, well, lets you milk a cow and fill the bucket with milk in the shortest time possible.
“This app has made a large impact on my life. It has changed the way I socialize and think. I have so far been hired by dozens of VERY LARGE farming companies that mainly produce dairy products. Some include Hägen Dazs and Land O’ Lakes. I am now officially considered as a professional cow-milker. In fact, they hired me because I am more efficient at milking cows than even the fastest machines. And again, how did I do all that? Thanks to this app of course. I practiced day and night. It was very hard, but it was worth it. I now have a 6 figure salary thanks to this app. One more thing, why are all the reviews so bad? They probably didn’t practice much. Anyways, it’s the best app I’ve ever downloaded.”
