10 best apps for geeks
Don’t let its generic name and icon fool you: this Voice Changer with Effects falls completely in geek territory. You can take on the voice of Optimus Prime from Transformers, Darth Vader, a zombie, a dragon, an alien… or even a ghost, whatever that means.
When you think of Indiana Jones, his faithful whip quickly comes to mind. This app makes the famous sound of Indy’s whip every time you shake your phone. Warning: the sound doesn’t come with a physical effect so it won’t help you train lions, for example.
Usually, official apps from big franchises are super boring. The official Star Wars app is a rare exception: it has an Augmented Reality feature, weather predictions for the Star Wars universe, the ability to unlock characters and ships… and you can even fight with a lightsaber or join the Dark Side.
If Stranger Things is an 80s-throwback party, its video game is nothing less. You’ll find references to Mario and Pac-Man throughout an adventure recreated in 16-bits, which was launched between seasons of the series. 100% free from start to finish.
