What do you prefer for entertainment: apps or games?

Said entertainment can come in a few different forms. You can either have fun with your phone's stock capabilities, playing with its camera and its cooky modes and filters (*ahem* Sony), reading news and gossip from a built-in news bulletin, or browsing the web. But there's also the obvious choice of downloading apps and games from your respective app store.
And there are a lot of entertaining apps out there. Sure, they are not labeled as "games", but camera apps like Snapchat or MSQRD, karaoke apps like Triller, or educational apps like Space Walk 2 can definitely put a smile on your face while you navigate an otherwise mundane weekday. That, or you can just go for a quick fix from one of the many mobile games available — from frantic tappers, to adventure games, platformers, or even shooters.
Some people don't enjoy mobile games as a general rule — either they are far too simple, or far too engaging to play on a phone and on the go (XCOM?). Others could care less that Vine is gone and would rather play another level of Candy Crush. Which side are you on?
Apps or games, which form of entertainment do you prefer?
Games, games, and more games!
I love my apps!
A balanced combination of both.
I only use my phone for communication and photos, I have no need for entertaining apps.

It really isn't as simple as either of if you ask me. There are many situations where you cannot sit down with a game easily, travelling and whatnot for example, there apps have a significant advantage, most mobile 'app' games are made for a short playtime, that you need to commit to play those games there. (excluding older games remade for phones generally) Where games require a bigger commitment in time, but if you ask me also are a large step above in terms of gameplay and quality most of the time.

Sometimes you only have a few minutes so getting in 5-10 minutes of gaming is nice. Sometimes you have time to watch an episode or two of a show. Depends what I'm in the mood for and if I have the time to enjoy it.

With my Android phone (currently a Samsung Galaxy Note 4), my most used apps are: YouTube Facebook the stock Camera app I consider other apps as add-ons only. Games, I've deleted all of my games already as 32GB is just not sufficient anymore.

Afterpulse, Real Racing 3, Zynga Poker, iMovie, GTA: SA are the biggest on screen time and battery users on my list. Most of the apps I use to entertain myself are either drawing or video creation. Apple Music app and Musi are the two that are ALWAYS used in background either while playing games or working.
