Going on a Road Trip? Download These 8 Apps to Help Pass the Time
Road trips typically start out fun, with all passengers being excited to get on the road. However, if you’re driving with children, you’ll quickly learn just how easily they become bored. With brains like sponges and legs that want to move, it won’t be long before they start asking how much longer the trip is going to take. Even adults who aren’t accustomed to long periods of inactivity, a road trip can soon morph from exciting to torturous. Before leaving, download these 8 apps that will keep everyone occupied and make the trip go smoothly.
Road Trip Bingo Designed specifically for long road trips, Road Trip Bingo allows your children to play bingo with the things they will normally see during the trip. Their bingo card might include cars, different types of animals, road signs and more. Available at just $.99, this app is a winner and is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch and the iPad. Fish Fingers! 3D Interactive Aquarium This app will delight the children and is really fun for adults, too. It allows you to turn your device (iPad, iPhone or iPad) into a super fun aquarium full of 3D fish. You can actually interact with the fish.
