Fun Ways to Kill Time with Your Smartphone

Around the world, over six and a half billion people own a smartphone – and it’s fair to assume that you’re one of them. 

If this is the case, you’ve got the perfect tool in your hands to kill time with your smartphone whenever you feel like it. You could be stuck in the middle of a long bus journey, waiting in line at a store, or relaxing at home with nothing much to do – whatever the case may be, your smartphone can keep you entertained. 

Let’s take a look at some of the most fun examples. 

Play Mobile Games

One of the main reasons people purchase smartphones – outside of the need to communicate with friends – is to play mobile games. 

These days, most mobile games are fun, accessible, and offer online modes (if you’re someone who likes to play with friends, this is great news). 

When it comes to playing mobile games, you have two options: download them from the store or use your browser. 

If you want to save memory space, you should play browser-based games instead. Need a suggestion? Try They have video poker and other fun games to choose from. 

Check Your Notifications

If you’re like most people, you probably allow your notifications to build up without checking them (don’t worry, it’s a habit!). However, when you want to kill some time, you should open up these notifications and go through them all. You might discover that you’ve missed something important, such as a message from a friend or co-worker. 

After you’ve finished, you’ll feel like a weight is off your shoulders. And if you want to be even more productive, you should tidy your emails, too. 

Take Photos for Instagram 

When you’re in a nice location – such as a park or garden – you should kill time by taking some photos that you can then post to Instagram.

Here’s a pro tip: use ‘portrait mode’ for better close-ups. Also, don’t forget to go into your smartphone settings and choose the highest resolution possible for photo and video capture (sometimes, the default settings for iPhone and Android devices aren’t the highest resolution).

Browse for Jobs 

If you’re a university graduate or an experienced pro looking to switch careers, you should fire up your smartphone’s browser and look for any exciting vacancies that might be around. Remote work has taken over the world, meaning there are more opportunities than ever before. You might even be able to find an opportunity in another country if that’s something that would be interesting to you!

Catch Up with Friends 

If you’ve got an hour or so of free time, you could use it to catch up with any friends you’ve not spoken to for a little while. You could even request to video chat with them if you want something more engaging and personal (after all, Messenger chat isn’t as exciting as a face-to-face conversation is!). 

Try Meditation – It’s Fun!

Lastly, you can download a meditation app to your smartphone and give it a try. 

If you’re someone who likes to relax and unwind, you’re guaranteed to have a nice time. However, if you don’t know which app to download, check out these meditation apps that you can get from the App store. 

Have fun!
