Whats APPening?

By Gail Suberbielle

With thousands of apps out there for your smartphone or tablet, it can be hard to make a choice without cluttering up your phone or cutting into your wallet with apps you’ll never use. To take some of the guesswork out of app selection, we’ve highlighted a few of our favorites. Most are available for iPhone or iPad, although some also are offered for Android or other smartphones.

Running With Friends®

From the makers of Words With Friends® comes another fun game you won’t be able to put down. Like Words With Friends, Running With Friends allows you the option to play games against opponents you know or choose a random opponent. But the similarities stop there. Running With Friends places users into the heart of Spain, where they find themselves running with the bulls through obstacles such as metro buses, canals, hay bales, and barrels, all while trying to collect stars (points) and keep from running into things or being squished by bulls. Users will jump, slide, and run their way to victory -- the opponent with the highest score after three rounds wins. Cost: Free

LafayetteTravel®

The easy-to-use and visually appealing Lafayette Travel app lets visitors and locals alike explore what Lafayette, Louisiana, has to offer. Simply click the appropriate icon to learn where to “stay,” “play,” “eat,” or “shop,” or about services or upcoming events. Visitors can then select from the color-coded pushpins that pop up on the map, so they can see what’s nearby and get directions, if necessary. Don’t want to see every eatery? Use the easy filter to select a particular type of food (Creole, Italian, or barbecue, for example) or feature (like catering, lunch, or outdoor seating). There are similar filters for the other areas of the app. We also liked the features that show visitors special offers, let them choose favorites, or even see what the current weather conditions are. Cost: Free
