Spin boredom away with 5 of the best fidget spinner apps and games for Android!
The fidget spinner is 2017's flagship office toy. As if our smartphones weren't distracting enough, out of nowhere came these spinners, slashing productivity amounts by double-digit percentages – under the guise of being nervous energy outlets. These are selling like crazy at the moment, and their extreme (though temporary) popularity has motivated app developers to simulate the toy in virtual conditions.

Thanks to the reasonably advanced physics and graphics processing options of modern smartphones, creating a convincing cyber-spinner is a walk in the park. Developers are toying with the concept by creating many varieties of spinners, some of which are only possible in the digital realm. They are also adding points, achievements, rank lists, and other extensions to the original – and exceedingly simple – experience.

Check out 5 of the best virtual fidget spinner on Android, and please don't blame us if you end up thoroughly addicted and buying a real-life one. It's only the fidget spinner concept at work!
