What are good iOS app time-killers for a long flight?

I've got a long international flight coming up and I'm looking for good iOS Games/Apps/Activities to keep me occupied during the 13-hour flight.

    Download a bunch of shows or movies on Netflix beforehand (don't forget to bring a portable charger or a charging wire if they have outlets in the plane).

    Carcassonne

    One of my favorite board games on iOS

    I strongly recommend the Carcassonne app - the best interpretation of an award-winning board game into an app. The toughest AI levels are heard to beat until you're really advanced - for me that took a year or more. I own a hundred or so board games - and this is one I never, ever get bored of. Great way to learn the game and then you'll love playing it in person! Runner Up: Splendor - also an award winning board game and beautifully rendered.

    Tap stories from Hardbound would be a great way to kill some time on a plane and learn something! I think you might be able to get through 15+ books on your flight. Sound about right, @nbashaw? 🙂

    Mini Metro for Mobile

    A minimalistic subway layout game

    Mini Metro is a game where you have to manage the creation of subway lines that get passengers from point A to point B as efficiently as possible. The tools at your disposal include additional lines, trains, train cars, high speed trains, bridges, and a few others. You lose a game if and when passengers have waited too long to get onto a train.

    Figure

    A simple, fast, and beautiful music creation app

    I've made beats with this app during my last flight. It's simple and intuitive to use. Sounds are cool. You can then use the beats you made within the app «Take» to add tracks (voice or other).
