Be here and not there - by being boring

Being Boring

Just be, right now. Relax, meditate or have some meaningless fun for a short while with the different things you can do in Being Boring. Become more focused and creative by concentrating on a repetitive and monotone task for a few minutes. Like a game without a goal.

Being Boring can for example help you to reduce stress, help you to focus, clear your mind when you have too much to think about and help you to kickstart your creativity.

Here are the different things you can do in Being Boring (double tap on the screen to choose):

  • Touch - Touch a dot and it disappears to appear somewhere else and then you can touch that and so on
  • Gravity - Three dots move depending on how you move your device
  • Swipe* - Swipe the dot in any direction and it will glide away and bounce off the edges of the screen
  • Connect* - By touching a dot a line between that dot and the previous dot is drawn
  • Magnet* - Drag a dot from the center of the screen and release it and will be forced back to the center by a magnet
  • Paint* - Draw with your finger within a shape and when it is filled a new empty shape appears

* = An in-app purchase for $0.99 each. (After you bought it on one device you can use it on all your devices.)

So the next time you have a few minutes to spare, don't check your mails or see what others do in some social app or do something you feel that you are supposed to do - help your mind by being boring.


Being Boring is free to download and to use with the first two things to do. The rest are available as in-app purchases for $0.99 each.
