Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp
You’re pretty much a servant to the cartoon animals in this game. You run a campground for them, dress them up and do chores for them. I thought it’d get boring, but I just reached level 55 and can’t stop.
This word search game rewards you with cute bears dressed up as monsters, houses, even other animals! The more words you find, the more cute bears appear. Warning: While adorable, the higher levels are actually really challenging.

This is the perfect stress reliever if you love seeing sweet, animated cats playing with the virtual toys you left out for them. And if you don’t, then who are you?
Audubon Bird Guide
This must-have app for amateur bird-watchers identifies species by pictures, descriptions and audio clips. I played one of the cardinal songs outside my house and, no joke, a red cardinal flew by right after.
Friskies Cat Fishing 2 (A Game for Cats!)
My cats are so obsessed with catching the fish in this game that they bat at my phone even when it’s off, trying to get the game to come back on.
