Platform: iOS
Cost: Free (in app purchases available)

Here’s what I’ve seen recently on Twitter about Dots:

As these Twitter messages point out, Dots is an addictive game. Why? Because, as blog posts about the app mention, the short amount of time it takes to play a round gives players the incentive to try again to see if they can do better next time. It will only take a minute to try and improve one’s score. Why not spend that minute? It’s also beautiful, or maybe just pretty, in it’s simplicity.

Dots is an app that teens will enjoy playing in groups and enjoy playing against each other. It’s an app that is perfect for projecting on a large screen and for having play-offs in the library. It’s an app that’s perfect for playing as teens wait in line, wait for a movie to start, or simply have a few minutes to let their minds wander. It’s those wandering times that might actually give teens some breathing room to solve a homework challenge, come up with a new idea, or simply relax.

You can see exactly how it works in the video below.
