Games on devices are not just the domain of children. There are many interesting and fun apps out there that are similar to your favourite card game or even you favourite TV quiz show.
Millionaire is very popular and is really good practice if you are a bit of a trivia buff. Even with the option of phone a friend and 50/50, this game can really test your knowledge. There are quite a few versions of this game and I have even downloaded it on a computer for a client.
Another fun game that gives daily challenges is Spider. To be honest some people won’t let me download it for them as they’re so terrified of spiders! This game runs a little like solitaire where your goal is to place all the cards in each suit in stacks of descending suit sequence. If you have an older relative who is struggling with using the mouse on their computer this game certainly teaches them how to drag and drop.
It’s important not to underestimate how useful games can be for hand movement and brain training as we get older. There are also many games that you can play with other people. Scrabble can be played against another opponent and they don’t even have to be in the room. They could be many miles away overseas. It’s a great way to keep in touch with relatives and friends.
Many games may have in-app purchases. Be careful on how much you spend on some of these apps. Remember they are only games.
There are over 2 million apps available. These are just a few that I have found throughout the years of helping people with their Apple devices and computers.
If you are struggling to understand your Apple device, please give me a call and we can discuss One on One classes. Or perhaps you have a group of friends who would like to learn how to use their iPhone camera? How about a three hour Photo to Frame or maybe a Getting Started or Travel workshop?
