1. Popcorn

Popcorn is an app for discovering movies that you haven’t seen before. It works a lot like Tinder. A list of movies is displayed for you to rate. You can mark movies that you’ve watched, don’t like, review later, or add to your list. Tap a movie and you’ll see more information about it on the IMDB page. Each movie shows a rating based on multiple movie review websites.

If you’d rather do the destroying, you can go into other people’s levels and wreak havoc. The game is online multiplayer, so it relies on other people being online. If you can find other players it’s a lot of fun.
