Apps To Have Fun

Apps To Have Fun: Mobile, Watch, VR, And More

As a kid, my goal was to maximize my fun time. As an adult, I saw that other things like responsibilities can get in the way. So it becomes extra important to make sure we take the time to have fun, even if it is just a short break.

Depending on your device of choice, you have options like:

• Mobile Game apps - I may not game hours at a time, but I do use apps to play word games & chess daily. There's also games like Tetris & Roblox.

• Mobile Music apps - I use apps to help me play instruments like piano, & picking the songs I want to play is definitely helping me stay motivated. Lately I've been learning to play theme music from movies, TV, & games. There are also apps for other instruments like guitar & ukulele. It took me a while, but on the ukulele I am finally getting used to playing some of the chords.

• Watch apps - after trying to avoid getting a watch, it was hard to say no when I was offered an Apple Watch through my health insurance. The watch lets me track all my activities like pool laps, respond to texts/calls, & even make it easier to track my disc golf scores.

• VR games - there are a lot of great apps to try out, not just Beat Saber but even games through the web. Not only games, but also other immersive experiences to check out as well.

• Console - consoles like Nintendo Switch have lots of great games to play together like Mario Kart.

• PC - many games these days you can play from different devices, but sometimes the experience can be better on a PC. Playing games like Roblox on PC lets you play using a mouse & keyboard while others are limited to the controls through a mobile device.

Ultimate Beat Saber VR Challenge

So I found a new ultimate fitness challenge - beating one of the hardest levels in the VR game Beat Saber.

If you haven't already seen it, check out the video "What The Cat!? by Camellia (Expert+)" under the VR playlist at our channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChf64Zj-RbjPhlKf6J00kVA/playlists

Games like Beat Saber are a great workout. I have a long way to go, but gave myself a realistic goal - 6 months to beat it or I lose a bet.

The device starts at $300 for 128GB & you can opt for the 256GB version for another $100.

If you end up getting one, you can also get $30 in credits for games like Beat Saber by purchasing it using this link https://www.oculus.com/referrals/link/dbeyond, or you can always buy from other places like Amazon https://amzn.to/3CMqvA9 

See you in the metaverse :-)
