Is this still a thing? Ap­par­ently so…

Free From Paul Du­mais Made for iPhone, iPad, Ap­ple Watch Needs iOS 9.0 or later Read­ers with kids will in­stantly rec­og­nize the sub­ject of our next app. Fid­get Spin­ner Plus is yet an­other sim­u­lated ver­sion of those an­noy­ing real-world plas­tic wid­gets found in re­tail stores ev­ery­where. Un­like the real thing, this won’t cost you a dime, and there are 14 dif­fer­ent spin­ners to choose from — or you can cre­ate your own us­ing one or more cus­tom col­ors on the iPhone app.

On Ap­ple Watch, turn­ing the spin­ner is done by ro­tat­ing the Dig­i­tal Crown or mul­ti­ple taps or swipes on the dis­play, while Force Touch changes to a dif­fer­ent type of spin­ner. There’s even a Com­pli­ca­tion that can be used to launch your fa­vorite spin­ner right from any sup­ported Watch face.

There are no sound ef­fects on Ap­ple Watch, but the ad-sup­ported iPhone app of­fers au­dio plus a game play field where you can bounce the spin­ner around the screen, plus Bat­tle Mode for play­ing with two spin­ners at once.

The bot­tom line. Mildly en­ter­tain­ing, but it works bet­ter on iPhone.
