Here is a list of boredom killer apps that you can download for free on your Android right now.
Boredom Killer Apps You Can’t Do Without in Your Me-Hour!
1. Flow Free
It’s a simple yet appealing puzzle game that will keep you hooked for hours. The objective of the game is to join pairs of colored points that have been scattered across a grid. You must build tubes to connect the points of the same color, without intersecting any other ones that are covering the grid. The goal is to complete the level with the smallest number of moves possible.
Flow Free has more than 2,500 free puzzles. If you want to play something more stimulating, you can race against the clock. Depending on your mood, the gameplay ranges from simple and relaxed to challenging and frantic.
This is another awesome boredom killer game for Android users, kids and adults alike. 2048 has a unique gameplay that tests your mind and skills.
You have to move tiles from one side a 4×4 grid by using your arrow keys. Two tiles that have the same number need to touch each other before they can merge into one, obtaining the combined value of both the tiles. For example, if two tiles each with the number 8 touch each other, then a new one will appear with the value of 16. As the name suggests, the objective is to combine the tiles until they reach a total of 2048. Seems easy? It sounds easier than it really is. Few players have achieved this target. 2048 is a boredom killer app that gets you busy all through.
Ok, so you don’t feel like gaming. You just want to bury yourself in a book. It’s an app that lets you download and read millions of different books on your phone, anywhere anytime. On Wattpad, you find stories from all genres, including classics, romance, suspense, poetry, spiritual, non-fiction and all types of fiction.
It allows you to read offline and adjust reading options, such as font size or style, background color or brightness, and story language. The best feature is that your user account is your bookmark. That means that Wattpad automatically syncs to any device, whether it’s a phone, tablet or desktop.
Looking for a bit of humor to cheer you up while you wait? 9GAG has the funniest pics, gifs, videos, memes, etc. to kill time so fast you won’t even realize how bored you are.

This addictive game is full of fantastic graphics with non-stop frantic enjoyment. All you have to do is lead Barry, the cartoon character, through various levels using a jetpack without dying. The game begins with a basic one, but as you complete daring missions, new levels open up along with high-tech equipment and power-ups.

6. SeriesGuide Show Manager
It’s a simple app that is useful for anyone who loves to watch TV shows. So, if you have a free moment, you can search what shows will be airing soon. You can plan what you want to watch tonight as you unwind in front of the TV. That’s a sure way to cure boredom. Since the app is designed for American programs, it displays the dates and times of each episode according to the US. SeriesGuide Show Manager keeps track of all the shows you like, the number of episodes viewed, and how many are yet to be seen/aired. The main menu also displays a list of recommendations that might interest you.

As with any interactive game played over the internet, you should keep your personal information safe. You can opt to use the AirG Spam blocker app, Hookt. It may be better to block spam and pop-up ads so that you can have uninterrupted fun.
