The vimeo app for iphone is one of our favourites for video streaming
Being one of our favourite video streaming websites, it's no real surprise the Vimeo app for IOS makes it on to our top 10 most fun apps list. Not only does the app deliver the most arty and creative clips on the internet, but it's also a pleasure to navigate around.

The Vimeo app's layout and design means it's responsive, smooth and intuitive, with the video browsing section loading quickly and making it easy to find the most eye-catching, thought-provoking and amusing videos from around the world.

The Vimeo app is completely free, and has four main tabs running along the bottom, including a feed of videos you're most likely to be interested in according to your likes, an explore tab that lets you search the database, an upload tab to add your own clips, and a watch later tab, allowing you to store lists of videos you'd like to view later on.

Vimeo has the potential to provide hours of video streaming entertainment, and is an essential app for those winter days indoors when the comfort of movie-watching is how you plan to spend your evening.

Cut the Rope

Cut the Rope app for iphone and ipad is the best for puzzle fun
Christmas usually gives us plenty of free time to spend as we like, such as eat all that festive food. But if you're too full up to munch on anything else, there's always the Cut the Rope puzzle game to keep your mind occupied, even if your body is not.

Having 250 million downloads around the world thus far, Cut the Rope is a highly addictive game with over 300 levels.

The physics-based game allows you to collect gold stars, discover hidden prizes and unlock new levels as you advance through them. What's more, there's a nifty 3D character add-on available that allows you to play Cut the Rope on Ipad in a more interactive way.

Cut the Rope will set you back a modest 69p, but provide hours of entertaining gameplay from the get-go.

Song Pop 

song pop game for iphone is the best for music lovers

If you haven't already played it - seriously, where have you been? - Song Pop is an additive music guessing game that pits your tune knowledge against that of your friends'.

Being one of the most fun apps we have played in a long time, Song Pop sets up a tournament between you and one other player, and you take turns to guess a clip from a track, chosen by you or your opponent from a range of categories including pop and rock, across different eras.

You only have 10 seconds to guess what artist sings a particular song, or what the name of the song is being played. The time runs down and the quicker you guess, the more points you earn. The player with the most points at the end wins a coin, which can then be traded in to unlock new playlists to challenge your friends with.

Song Pop is a highly addictive and majorly fun one of a kind app for IOS devices, and without doubt worth a spot on our top 10 list.
