Top apps to download

By Deanna Frances

There’s a reason why the younger generation is considered the technology generation.

With smart phones, iPods, iPads and everything in between, youths are set when it comes to electronics and technology. Apple customers download 5 million games a day in the United States and some parts of Europe.

With all this technology, entertainment apps continue to be made in order to keep people occupied. Games like “4 Pics 1 Word,” “Ruzzle,” “Draw Something,” “Temple Run,” “Words with Friends,” and “Fruit Ninja” have been downloaded onto devices all over the nation.

“I’d say ‘4 Pics 1 Word’ [is my favorite] because sometimes they are really easy but sometimes they can make you really think hard about it,” said Emily Poturica, freshman elementary education major.

Another student, senior biology major, Sara Rowe said “Ruzzle” is her favorite because her friends play and they are competitive.

Some students have a completely different app they enjoy.

“It’s called ‘The Simpsons: Tapped Out,’” said junior history major Jessie Lee. “The reason I like it is because I grew up watching ‘The Simpsons,’ and the game allows me to design my own Springfield. I level up, earn money and buildings by putting the show’s characters on tasks that they have an allotted time to complete. It’s ongoing, but not time-consuming, and I can have my friends as neighbors.”

No matter which game a person enjoys, all of them have great qualities and are a lot of fun to play.

I also have been involved in playing many of these games. After playing them for a while, I have to say

that my favorite is definitely “Words with Friends.” I used to love Scrabble when I was younger, and the two games have many similar qualities. “Scrabble” used to be one of my family’s games, and with “Words With Friends” I can play with my distant family members who don’t live nearby.
