We really enjoy using Anchor Point because of its simplicity. Just tap the Add Anchor button to pinpoint your location, and attach a name and icon to it. The location will be stored in your personal list where you can also share it with your friends. When you want to make your way back to your anchor point, just follow the compass or view the directions on the built-in map.

Why we picked this?

Taijitu is inspired by the mythology of yin and yang. The screen is divided into two sections by a white line with shapes on each side. The shapes that are pulsing are the ones that can be swapped with a tap. The idea is to balance the two sides by ensuring the colors are equally distributed. The game includes more than 100 levels that become progressively more complicated.

You’re looking for something relaxing.
