    "Over winter break, I had a lot of free time. I really didn't know what to do with myself. I came on here to see if there were any good aps that I could just relax and kill time with. I was given the suggestion to try Osmos, a game about orbs that grow bigger and smaller. This simple game got me hooked. I was really happy with this suggestion. "

    "StumbleUpon is a unique site that allows you to one-click your way to a random website. It's a fantastic way to kill time and can help you find unique websites or services that may or may not be mainstream. The service has been around for a long time and is a lot of fun to experience. I highly recommend this app for when you are bored or need to kill time."
