Flightradar24, shows all flights going in and out of any airport you choose. You can also point the phone at any airplane and it'll tell you the flight number and where it's going. Not particularly useful but fun.
Animal drums, try and keep up with Animal from the muppets playing drums.
Geocaching.

I just downloaded their apps, see the current news stories.

Farm, I prefer the flightradar on my laptop, can actually click on planes and see where they're going etc.

aldiko - kinda turns your phone into a e-book. Is ok reading books on the phone, I was surprised.

Can grab ebooks from all sorts a places - like local libraries and such. If you have Calibre on a computer you can do all sorts of fancy stuff.

Different difficulties and undo buttons, I've got the wrong app.

Spent a day on it then gave up, problem is the wife got into it. Been back a couple of times but no luck.

Having thought about it, a lower score would mean less moves and be better, surely?
