Ways to kill time at work with your phone

Posted 03 July 2012 - 05:44 AM

So, I am sitting here procrastinating the start of of another project and I have my phone handy. I have some apps installed in which I play or use to kill some time.
Apps:

Angry Birds in Space
Logo Quiz
Scramble with Friends
Words with Friends
Draw Something
Twitter
Facebook

Now I was wondering how many others on here spend thier day playing with the apps on their phone isntead of working? And what apps you are using?

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

I have a word search puzzle app and a Spanish 21 app (blackjack variation) on my Evo 4G. They both get used whenever I need to kill 5 mins.

that went the way of the 80's ------------------ I do most of my work (when I get it) so fast that I always have idle time. 4 devlopers and only work for 1.

kinda like our network guys 9 of them and really only work for maybe 2.

Better than angry birds? Maybe. Does your boss fire the guy with initiative first, or last?

That would mean that I was able to do as Ipleased when I pleased on our system-- no my friend the only ones here that can decide to be "brillant" or"creative" or"inciteful" are the managers. Other then that we are ignored until it becomes clear that our idea was awesome and they say they thought of it. Have you ever seen a construction worker actually work (road crew) 5 guys, 1 shovel and 4 supervisors--- that is how my work place is structured.... so perhaps maybe not all companies work in the way you think they should--- hmm initiative-- i think not.

Hell it took them close to 25 people bitching about the a/c unit making everyone sick over a 6 month period before they had a meeting to discuss whether or not to get it cleaned.
