7 apps to tackle in-flight boredom

The only thing that makes getting the middle seat on a long flight worse is the realization that the article you were reading has refreshed on your device, promising hours of Internet-less boredom. A long flight can be an entertaining experience with the right apps; they can transform a boring seven-hour journey into an afternoon of good reading, brainstorming, productivity or entertainment. Download these free apps before you're off on your next trip to avoid begging the flight tracker to get you there faster. Words in the sky The Offline Reader app allows you to download articles you've been waiting to read or links related to research you're working on and save them for in-flight reading. This also is a great app to save hotel webpages or travel article links that won't refresh when you don't have Internet access. Available for free on Apple.
