After you’ve received word from the captain that all electronic devices are now safe to power back on, you are going to need some very entertaining apps regardless of the length of your flight.
Fight those long waits to take off and that crying baby with some highly entertaining in-flight apps on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad.
There is no better way to zone out the person kicking the back of your chair like saving some “Eeeps”. In the iPhone and iPod touch game Goop you have one simple goal – to save the adorable monsters called “Eeeps” from getting hit by the dangerous dripping Goop.
This game will keep you entertained on the plane for hours as you try to get the entire Eeep family back home goop free. Each Eeep has their own unique personality which makes it a bit challenging to get the entire Eeep family across safely. Save as many Eeeps as you can to get your best score. As a bonus you can earn achievements and compete with friends to see who the real Eeep hero is right from 50,000 feet in the air!
Who doesn’t like to have a little time to enjoy some music? Well if you were only able to enjoy a bit of music in your car on the way to work, now is your chance to catch on some of your favorite tunes or even some jams you didn’t even realize you liked.
Just power up Pandora, choose a station based on your musical preference, and hook up those earphones to enjoy great music with no interruptions. Too bad there is no room for dancing in those small cabins.
Arrival to your destination will happen in no time with the Netflix app loaded onto your device. As soon as you get the OK from the pilot, whip open your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad and start enjoying some of your favorite movies in your Netflix queue.
No movies in your queue? Your long flight is a perfect time to browse the Netflix catalog, choose some favorites, and start watching them instantly on your device. Now all you are missing is the popcorn.
Had enough of skimming through the same three in-flight magazines loaded with ridiculous inventions? Then churn up iBooks on your iPhone, iPod, or iPad and start enjoying some titles to capture your imagination. iBooks is a great app that can keep you entertained the entire flight. There is a huge library of titles within in iBooks and the best thing about it is that a lot of iBooks titles are absolutely free.
Not in the mood to dive into a book? No worries. iBooks also has magazines which can save you the trouble from wasting money on the overpriced magazines they sell at the airport newsstands.
Feel like you are missing out on the world while you are flying so high in the air? Luckily, with the Editions app on your device you won’t miss a thing.
Editions is a magazine app that can run circles around those old-fashioned paper magazines. Editions learns what you like to read about and sends content your way that you might find interesting. Select from keywords, particular websites, or even categories on what news you would like to read and Editions will deliver even more content to you based on your interests. Now you can spend your entire flight reading about cats that play the piano.
