  • Fidgeter – Ultimate Spinner (free) – Remember that old Apple commercial: “There’s an app for that?” Still true. Swipe with “your hand finger,” watch, relax, repeat. You can upgrade your spinner and even compete against others.
  • Classical Giants Radio ($0.99) – 24/7 stream of classical pieces from history’s greatest composers. Provides excellent background music for your daily goings-on, and the composers will watch you work via the portraits displayed on screen. Why so angry, Tchaikovsky?
