How iPhone and iPads Apps Kept Us Sane During Lockdown

Keeping Your Mind Occupied During Lockdown

I think that we can all agree that 2020 was like no year we have experienced before, especially considering the lockdown. We all had to search deep within our souls to keep our minds occupied at various times during that year.

Adjusting to what became the new normal for many was difficult, however, it was the internet that did keep many of us sane. For those of you that have an iPad or iPhone, getting online is easy, as too is being able to download the plethora of different gaming apps that are available these days.

Searching for the best iPad slots to play is a breeze if you do enjoy gambling, or finding an app that is going to challenge you mentally such as a question-and-answer type game or a word search game to download will not take you very long either.

In fact, during the lockdown, we all had to endure in 2020 and for many of us into 2021 too, game, puzzles, and other apps did keep many of us sane, and it is true to say many of us will still be playing those games and puzzles for years to come too.

Free Apps Vs. Pay to Download Apps

One thing I have noticed when it comes to downloading an iOS app of any type, but much more so those that are game or quiz/puzzle type apps, is that some of them are completely free to download whilst some do cost you a few dollars at least to download.

The main difference between those two types of apps is those that are free to download will usually have advertisements built within them which can at times distract you from the games or puzzles you are playing.

Those that do not have advertisements built into them but are free to download will often charge you to continue using the app when for example you have hit a certain point in the game or puzzle, and they can be ongoing charges to pay too.

Possibly the best apps to download are those that have no in-app purchase requirements as they are known and do not come with any form of built-in advertisements but require you to pay a small fee to initially download them.

Those download fees are of course how the designer/suppliers of that app make their money, and it is often much more cost-effective to make use of those types of apps rather than ones that will see you having to pay ongoing fees to use them or those that force you to have to watch advert after advert whilst the app is running and in use.

Design Your Own App

One cool way that you could make some money is by designing your own app, believe it or not, many people have done so over the year with varying degrees of luck.

It is not as difficult as you may have imagined these days for many companies have launched a simple way for anybody that has come up with a good idea for an app for them to quickly and easily design their own app and market that app too.

You may have such an idea yourself and if so, then do take a look around for one of those companies, for you will be amazed at just how easy it is to get turn your ideas into a real working app, and if it catches the imagination of many people you could end up with a good little business yourself.

At the end of the day though we have all experienced different emotions during the pandemic lockdown, and thankfully there is finally light at the end of the tunnel.

I for one am hoping we all get back to normal sooner rather than later, but until that day arrives please keep your mind occupied and think positive thoughts as we will all get through these dark times and get our lives back to normal once again.
