We Are Officially Obsessed With This Mindless Pancake Flipping App

Courtesy of Pancake - The Game
There are a lot of smart, useful food apps out there, but sometimes it's the completely mindless ones that really grab our attention. That's exactly what happened with Pancake, an app that is probably more of a distraction than a game. And, yet, we can't seem to stop playing.

Here's how it works: first you download the app (it's free on iOS!) and then you attempt to flip a pancake as many times as you possibly can without it falling out of the pan. It's harder that it sounds, okay? Finally, the game ends and, of course, you can't help starting all over again.

Once you start playing, it's hard to stop and do things that are truly important, like, say, getting off at the right stop on the bus for work — so don't say we didn’t warn you! Or, if you want to get really crazy, you could always take the game a step further and actually make a batch of non-virtual, edible pancakes. (Popular Mechanics)
