Forget real-life fidget spinners: An app that
simulates a fidget spinner is now the top free app in the App Store.
Called “Finger Spinner,” the app is a gamified version of the super-popular toy. The app works by giving you five swipes to get the longest spin you can, and the goal is to unlock rewards and new spinners.
Finger Spinner is made by Ketchapp Games, the company behind “2048” and “Ballz.”
The app has now overtaken top apps like YouTube, Messenger, Instagram, and Snapchat on the top free apps list.
Fidget spinner apps are only popular with iPhone users, apparently. The Android version of the app — called “Fidget Spinner” — isn’t among the top free apps on the Google Play Store, although an app called “Fidget spinner neon glow” clocks in at No. 21.
