I got a text message from one of my family members telling me to check out this new app that was released that another family member developed. It was the Sony "Sports Jeopardy!" app and I figured "hey, if I'm going to freeze my butt off I might as well be distracted in the process."
Full Disclosure: I'm not getting paid to write this. I wasn't pressured into writing this by family. This app just needs to be spread.
It is exactly what the name suggests - Jeopardy for the sports fan. All kinds of sports and questions. If you're in to sports trivia like I am, this is probably the best app you can have on your phone, except for maybe The Chive.
I'm serious. I was glued to my phone playing against the computer. I learned some stuff but mostly it got my competitive juices flowing. It's now the last thing I do before I go to bed at night and then whenever I get bored throughout the day.
Wall Street Journal even wrote about how great this thing is and they're usually pretty stingy about throwing around praise. Seriously, check it out.
It got me through the ice storm and killed my productivity once I regained power. Nonetheless it was absolutely the best $0.99 I've spent and I had to share.
