Today we got top 10 applications so unusual you’ll be wondering what on earth the developers were thinking let’s get right into it
This is built for the film buffs who can’t control their bladder it’s got a constantly updating database of movies even actually ones that are currently in the cinema and the idea is simple the application is gonna tell you when it is safe to go to the bathroom so someone has actually sat down and watched every single one of these films documenting the times in which little or no plot action happens four or five minutes which you could miss and still completely enjoy the film
You’ve probably heard of these brutal alarm clocks you can download that force you to get out of your bed in the morning in creative ways and they force you to use extravagant methods to stop the alarm ringing like shaking your phone vigorously for 20 seconds and it’s pretty effective well this one has all of that functionality but also one key difference if you snooze the alarm continuously you can configure the application to send a text message to someone in your house telling them tow ake you up.
You could call it a game you could call it an app this is between the lines it’s a set of very unusual puzzles but all with the common theme of elaborate wordplay and because of how abstract and out of the box the puzzles are you really feel like every victory is a result of your hard work and intelligence
7. Die With Me
This next application isn’t so much useful as it is genuinely hilarious die with me is an online chat room that you can only access when your smartphone is on 5% battery or less the idea being that you can find other people who are suffering a similar fate to you and you can travel that road on your way to offline peace together

Wamo is an icon pack and upon first glance is the complete opposite of subtle you’ve got bold bright flat squares however as unconventional as it is there is a certain type of aesthetic that it blends perfectly into get the right launch at the right wallpaper and you’ve got a killer set up in basically no time at all.
4. Heads Off
This is a game that called heads off which actually pretty well describes what is going on here you control a floating head powering through a creepy 2d platforming world and when you hold the screen the head will open its mouth and scream and this is what propels you forward clearly a really cheery uplifting kind of experience when you play you’ll unlock new heads and every time you use those heads in a game you’ll see the story that that person led in their life.
Fraxel an interactive fractal art generator you essentially use touch gestures with a single finger or two fingers to manipulate the image you see on screen and is just one of those calming therapeutic kind of experiences what I did like is the social integration you can take screenshots or even record video natively in the application and then share it to social media.
2. Lok Lok
This leads us to number two lock lock which is a shared whiteboard lock screen which means that when you invite people to your group on the app they’ll all share the same lock screen as you and any contributor can edit the screen which means that say for example I wanted to remind everyone that we had a coffee meeting at 3:00 I could just write it on my lock screen and be rest assured that anyone else in the group will automatically see it when they turn therefore and on all right application.
Reason behind its first place because it’s not just wacky and fun but it’s also genuinely pretty useful zombies run it’s got an audio track that sets the scene and as you run it’s gonna use your GPS location to see if you can outrun various different zombie hordes in a number of different scenarios and you can set the length depending on how long you want to run and even combine the tracks with audio from your own playlist.
