Slip into some tie-dyed rags, man, and give the peace sign as you go back in time to the groovy 70s. This is a fast-paced game based upon the old-skool favourite, Lemmings. As your Hippie camper vans are drawn to the sea, you have to evade dune buggies or you’ll end up in the drink. How many Hippies can you save?
This game’s graphics are bright and attractive, and upbeat surfer music accompanies you as you spread the peace and save Hippies.
And this app is like, free man…
This free app allows you to mediate, to relax, and let your mind float away on a sea of colour to a land of tranquillity. You can slow the colours down or speed them up, depending on your mood. Ultimately, let this app turn your iPhone into the ultimate meditation tool!
The Way Of The Hindu
John Lennon was an inspirational speaker, a modern day philosopher, and this is one app he would’ve had stored on his iPhone.
Open the app and you’re opening a collection of inspirational and motivational quotes. Open your mind, too, and indulge, learn, think – a free way to change your perspective of the world!
Inner Peace & Calm
Glenn Harrold is the UK’s best-selling self-help author, and his app will help you overcome everyday ailments such as stress, anxiety, and will help you sleep well and feel more relaxed.
This app contains free and premium content, although to access the premium you must subscribe, which is around £5 per month. But this version gives you exclusive tracks: Relax and Sleep Well Daytime, and also Nightime versions, Sports Performance, Financial Abundance and Public Speaking. You can also find e-books and bonus tracks with regular updates.
This app costs £1.99, but you get a lot for your money with this box crammed full of Zen. Buddha boxes are portable sound machines used to meditate to Buddhist chants used in temples all around the world. If you can’t get to a temple or want to meditate on holiday, this app is a must.
Open the app and you can choose from 9 boxes in an array of colours. 17 “Zen” images are available, including images of Buddha, Himalayan mountains, Tibetan temples and Zen gardens.
9 soothing “Amituofu” chants accompanied by meditative music are also at a touch of the screen, helping your to mind wander.
There are also Buddha quotes on Health, Mind and Love.
For a small price, this app is well worth the love.
iBlueSky costs £4.99 and is designed for creative productivity and intuitive workflow. Use this app and keep note of your thoughts and then read them later to understand your psyche and improve yourself.
If inspiration hits – which is usually does at the most inconvenient of times – this beautifully presented app is perfect to get anything down clearly. iBlueSky nearly takes up the entire iPhone’s screen and actually looks like a built in feature from Apple. It features the double-tap zoom in and out, and the finger scroll down, also the keyboard is big and clear and the screen can be tilted as if you were sending a text.
Attach notes to branches (imported or exported in most formats), and then edit each branch with a colour picker option. The different colours can then be selected for sub-branches of information, keeping things in order.
So if you’re a creative soul and that light bulb appears above your head when you’re out, download this app and keep your ideas in check. This app should pay for itself if enough of your ingenuous ideas come to fruition.
I think this my favourite app as I’m a writer and ideas do spring up at the most annoying times.
Ever feel so happy and fulfilled with life you want to express gratitude to the whole world?
Keeping track of your emotions is the first step in gaining a sustainable happiness. In fact, it is scientifically proven method of increasing your long-term happiness. So try and stay happy and keep a gratitude journal.
Within this app is a questionnaire to measure your happiness and a text box to fill in to record the good things that have happened throughout your day.
You can let others know what you are grateful for by using the ‘stream’, a twitter-like function that let’s you spread your love.
I Just Made Love
Make love not war, right? Well with this iPhone app you can log and tell the world via GPS-tag where and when you made love. Should you want to, you can also check where others have made love. I thought this was a bit of a hit or miss and wondered whether I should include it, but Lennon was a fan of LOVE, and it seems this is catching on as it has already been downloaded more than 10, 000 times!
Inner Peace Cards
Finding inner peace is the most powerful element of discovering pure happiness. Dr. Wayne W. Dyer is a renowned author and orator in the field of self-development. He has 30 books under his belt and created audio and video programs.
Download this app for a mere $3.99 and find your inner peace with 50 Affirmation cards designed to guide you in your search for the ultimate health and happiness.

There’s an email option to send out messages to friends too. You can even save cards to your iPhone’s photo library and use as your wallpaper.
John Lennon App
I left the best for last. This is a ridiculously simple and elegantly designed app, one worth every single 99 of the cents it costs. Not a great deal to say as the app speaks for itself – a tap of the screen offers up some of Lennon’s most inspirational and intellectual thoughts and quotes.
