bahrain latest mobile apps review

Check out some of Kristian Harrison’s top picks for fun and useful apps this month.

If you feel like you’re spending most of your time aimlessly scrolling through social media, whether it’s Twitter, Instagram, Reddit or Facebook, then maybe you need a change. Pull yourself out of the scroll hole and learn something for once thanks to Brainfood. This ingenious app offers bite-sized ‘knowledge nuggets.’ So, enjoy 30 seconds of useful information while sitting on the bus, on the toilet or on your couch. It’s fun, engaging, and genuinely interesting.

There are plenty of travel apps out there that’ll help you plan your travel itinerary, book your flights, find you a hotel, etc. What makes Skiplagged different is the fact that it searches a little-known area of bookings called ‘Hidden City’ flights. Essentially, these are flights that can be booked more inexpensively than normal because they occur as layovers to other destinations. It’s a complicated process, but basically, Skiplagged sifts through all the possible combinations in order to get users the cheapest flights possible.

Tired of the pre-downloaded weather apps on your device? We get it. There are tons of options but few deliver quite like CARROT Weather. Users can set the app’s ‘personality preference’ so if you’d prefer a buttoned-up weather experience, CARROT works fine. Or, if you’d like a little snark and sarcasm with your forecast, you can get that too. While the quips are fun, the streamlined, clean design of the app makes it stand out.

Looking for a little encouragement on your next cardio workout? This app has you covered. It turns your run or jog into an interactive game. Simply put in your earbuds, start the app, and follow the instructions for your mission. Speed up when the zombies chase you and earn supplies by completing workouts and ‘missions’. Zombies, Run! combines a health app with a great storytelling feature for a fun and invigorating workout.
