After a busy weekend spent in the company of friends and family, it may feel good to finally pick up your iPhone and check out what’s going on in the world, or maybe play a good game in your free time or the like. You know, not everyone has time to read the news, so in this week’s top five I include a nice, handy app which actually offers the convenience of a radio, except that it gives you the news you are really interested in.

Orbit Path

Games are an important part of our everyday digital life. After the successful Word Hack, the creators, Blue Label Labs, are back with a new and challenging game, Orbit Path. Pass your probe safely though planetary orbits, and avoid planets and suns as you use gravity, wormholes, space time, and much more. Download Orbit Path from the App Store for free!


Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens

It’s time to relive the galaxy’s greatest adventures with some help from Lego Stars. You will be playing any of the heroic characters from the movie, such as Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron, Han Solo, Chewbacca, C-3PO, and BB-8, as well as Kylo Ren and General Hux. Download Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens from the App Store for free (but make sure you have enough space)!


Rio 2016 Keyboard

Do you love the Olympics? Express your excitement and national pride with Rio 2016 Keyboard!

Have you ever wanted to skip a news report while listening to a radio station, because you just weren’t in the mood? Now you can. Meep provides a convenient way to crunch the news: listen to it, instead of reading it. Meep’s professional narrators read stories aloud about your preferred topics, and nothing else.
