Sometimes you need something to distract you, because you are bored and want something to do. I am bringing to you here two apps that will make you happy and maybe someday will be very useful for you. In some apps you can communicate with other people, and in others you can show or edit your photos, or you can play. Apps show you a world of possibilities that you will enjoy and I will show you some of this magic.
Quizup: This is a game where you answer different questions, and the best thing is that you can choose the topic. For example, if you’re good at sports you can answer all the questions about sports that you like, but if you only like football, or if you only know about Bayern Munich, there is a category of questions for every team. If you love rock music, you can search for that category and you don’t need to know about other types of music, or if you know so much about Michael Jackson, there is of course a category just for him.
In this game you have a world of possibilities and you can play with people all over the world. You can know the most about fashion design in your country, or you can be in the top ten of the Formula 1 category.
Duolingo: This app lets you learn different languages. The best thing about the app is that you can choose the language that you want, like English, Italian, French, German, or other possibilities.
It’s an incredible app because you can learn on your phone, and the app gives you different exercises with sounds, writing and images, and if you know a little bit about a particular language, you can avoid doing the basic levels.
Don’t hesitate to download these amazing apps: I know you’ll enjoy them!
