Apps and games to download

Don't leave the wifi without having downloaded at least one App to play with.

Video games are an incredible ally when it comes to passing the time without realizing it.

Three tips:

Crossy Road. A great classic of mobile games. You don't need big skills, just quick reflexes and a quick thumb to make your favorite frog or pet jump at the right time, trying not to make it run over.

Candy Crush. Now that it's been a while since everyone played it, you can happily try it out (or reopen it if you've detoxed). On one condition: that you don't get too excited about it.

2048. There are numbers but you don't need mathematical skills. Just a little bit of logic.

Music and Audible

Headphones in the ears, before leaving make sure you have material to cover the trip already downloaded on your smartphone, because even when you are not necessarily offline, the data does not necessarily take up enough - and in any case less battery is consumed, which is a very precious commodity now.

Music. If you still don't have it, start the Spotify download and try the subscription (which is free for the first month) to be able to download the playlists that interest you most and listen to them even offline. Don't forget to add the summer hits to the list as well.

Podcasts, audio series and audiobooks. Audible is a new Amazon service dedicated to those who want to try a new type of entertainment. You download the App, subscribe and choose from thousands of texts available for listening even in offline mode. The first month of trial is free.
