Everywhere you turn there is a new App in town!  When Apple launched a little thing called the App Store in 2008, few people predicted the resulting explosion of mobile apps over the last five years.  Many of these Apps are just for fun and are wonderful ways to pass the time while sitting in waiting rooms.  And, they can be educational to boot!

One favorite “time killer” of ours is Unblock Me.  Kids and adults alike can learn how to solve complex spatial puzzles using prediction, strategy, and (on some puzzles) large doses of patience and perseverance.  By moving the individual blocks in ways that makes a path to get the red block off the board, you practice logical and analytical thinking and exercise your knowledge of spatial relations.  Unblock Me can be an enjoyable brain-exercising puzzle game for kids and adults who aren’t easily frustrated.
