4 Pics 1 Word
4 Pics 1 Word is a fun game that forces players to think creatively. Each level of the game shows players four separate pictures and asks what connects them all. For instance, the four pictures shown might be of a shower head, a wave, raindrops, and someone watering a plant. The answer, in this case, would be water. With each correct answer, coins are earned which can be used to give hints or solve the puzzle. As players progress the levels, the connections between pictures become harder and more obscure. The game has skyrocketed to popularity and currently ranks number two on iTunes’ top free apps list.
Songza is a music app that allows listeners to choose music playlists based on the time of day and genre. If it’s Wednesday afternoon, the app’s “music concierge’ will give you music options such as studying (with or without lyrics), driving, unwinding, getting ready, or working out, to name a few. From there, listeners can pick the genre of music, anything from folk to rap, and then choose from three playlist options. Songza has music tailored for holidays and seasons as well and a wide variety of genres. People love Songza because it has perfect music for any mood or time of day. The free app was awarded the iTunes App Store Best of 2012.
